Newark Comic Con: Tha Gata Negrra

(Photo by Candylust Photography)

Tell me a little bit about yourself and your brand?

I’m Tha Gata Negrra, Tha TRUE ORIGINAL GATA. I’m an alternative hip-hop artist in the form of a catgrrrl. I'm a Newark, NJ native and still live there to this very day.

My brand includes a concept called NYANVIDA—“nyan-life” (“Nyan” is the Japanese onomatopoeia for the sound a cat makes). I credit one of my musical brethren with applying the “nyan” part as a concept—a “thing”—and not just something I’d say as a catgirl. He’d say, “You have that nyan swag going hard today” or something like that. It was like a state of being. So, NYANVIDA came to mean the importance of being yourself-- being fearless enough to go deep into who you truly are and live that every moment of every day. Not just expressing yourself but leaving an impression of yourself on the world around you. And I’ve quite a few things to impress!

What made you decide to get into your field?

Well, music is the family business. My father was a frontman for two bands, and he still writes songs. So, I pretty much followed my father into it. He and my mother fostered a love for music early on in my life. My younger brother is a classically trained musician and he produced my first and second albums. He’s also a hip-hop artist. One of my older brothers is a DJ. I guess it was inevitable that I made the choice to get involved in music! I chose to write and perform rhymes partially because I felt more comfortable doing that than singing. And I ended up loving it.

What is the vision of your field? What do you hope to achieve?

I hope to continue making great music—gaining fans, touring, and having fun whilst doing so. I hope to spread the word of NYANVIDA to the world.

What is your favorite moment in your career thus far? Why?
Hmm…my favorite moment would have to be the first time I met a hardcore GNOtaku (GataNegrraOtaku) in person who told me that they were having a tough time at some point, and that they listened to my first album, “GATA City”, almost constantly during that time, and it helped them. I remember just being super humbled and awed by the fact that something I made got them through a particularly bad patch of their life. That moment reminded me that I’m not doing what I do in vain.

What do you have coming out soon?

I’ve recently finished my second album, “P.R.O.W.L.” and I’m so excited about that! There are eleven new songs in this project and I hope to have it released by the fall. My graphic novel is still in the works—haven’t found the right artist to replace the one I had initially…but I have faith that I will!

What is your website? Contact information?

My website is: I can be contacted there ( or through my Facebook ( I’m on several of the usual social media platforms—come say hey!

Additional Comments?

I will also be performing at the afterparty for Newark Comic Con called “FINAL ROUND! Cosplay Ball”. I might be giving a sneak listen to some stuff from “P.R.O.W.L.”…who knows?

Thank you to Tha Gata Negrra. We look forward to seeing more from you and look forward to your work. The Gata Negrra will be at Newark Comic Con on August, 20th 2016. Please take a moment and check out the website at Buy a ticket and we will see you there.

After overcoming the struggles of Season 10, Buffy and the Scoobies give themselves a well-deserved break from fighting evil. Unfortunately, the momentary peace comes to a screeching halt when a supernatural disaster wreaks havoc on the citizens of San Francisco, and the gang is forced to save the world from imminent doom, again.

SDCC 2016 Review

SDCC has once again come upon us and over in a flash. It seemed this year that there wasn’t much hype about it, as years pasts. Even the con itself, felt different. There weren’t as many autograph sessions/photo ops as last year. Not sure if its losing its hype, or what. It just didn’t feel like Comic Con this year.

We did some cosplay this year: Ghostbusters, Team Rocket, and Doctor Horrible. Honestly Team Rocket was the biggest hit, I’m assuming due to Pokemon GO. The Nintendo Lounge pulled the kids on stage for their costumes and won some prizes. Nintendo lounge is outside the con at the Marriott Hotel has tons of games to play, and you can fill up a passport to get a ton for their claw machine. Lines get long, so try to get their early. 

Many exclusives you were able to pre-order and pick up at the con, which helped congestion in the dealer’s room, and less people sleeping outside to get in the next morning. Funko, Hasbro, and Mattel had lines outside nightly, with chances to get a wristband to get in their lines the next day. Funko’s lines are always insane, and you’re not guaranteed what you are hoping to obtain. We were able to walk up to the Funimation Booth and purchase 2 POPs (as they mark your badge for limits) and walk away. I wish more booths did the limits to help everyone that really wanted an exclusive to get one, and stop the scalping.

There are so many contests and raffles during SDCC, you will probably never see them all. We chose to try our hand at the CONAN POP giveaway daily. If you were lucky enough to get chosen to attend one of his tapings during SDCC, you automatically get a CONAN POP at the end of the show. Bring a bag with you to put him in, as when you leave you will be harassed by scalpers outside the doors to buy him off of you. The line for the giveaways started outback of the Hyatt hotel, and doors opened every day at 9:30am. They allowed about 100 people in at a time, you would put your hand in a dark cloth bag and hope you picked a winning ticket. Chances of winning were 1 out of 5. After 4 days of lining outside from 6am-9:30am we were able to complete the whole set! We also went around to TBS, Cartoon Network and Powerpuff Girls booth and collected the pins every day. 

The Iconic Booth had a promotion if you bought the ONCE UPON A TIME – Captain Hook figure, you could come back and have him sign it. It sounded like a good idea, until the day of the signings. The booth did not plan the event very well and people trying to get in line were turned away by Police and Security due to fire hazards. If this is such an issue in a crowded place, I don’t see why they cannot move events such as these to the panel rooms upstairs, where there is plenty of room for lines, and everyone. After determination and pacing back and forth, (if you were standing still, you would get yelled at) we managed to get in the line. It was basically a 30sec event of handing your figure to staff, who handed it to Collin to sign, they snap a quick pic and rush you out. It was beyond stressful for people that made the purchases, and I’m sure the staff.

The PRISM Booth had a Samantha Newark signing on 3 days, and they had their act together. The lines were smooth, easy to get in, and hassle free. Samantha was amazing to meet, and takes the time to truly meet/talk to her fans.

As for panels, we didn’t attend many. A lot of the good ones were in Hall H, and camping out overnight wasn’t an option this year. We did attend the Doctor Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog, where they had a costume contest and special things to shout out during the show. 

Some good tips to keep in mind: Pack food, snacks, water as you never know how long a line will be. It saved us many times during the weekend. Wear sunscreen (as many lines will wrap outside and beyond), hats, sunglasses to protect yourself. Keep in mind that parking near the con, is a lottery system, that you have to enter/pay for before the con if you get chosen. I heard the Westfield mall was offering parking, but it was pretty expensive. The trolley is normally your best bet, but at the end of the day it gets packed. Hope to see you all next year!

The Walking Dead Trailer: Shiva Revealed at SDCC

The survivors on Walking Dead have faced a lot. Season 6 ended on a huge cliff hanger and I think it pissed off a lot of fans as we all were waiting to see who gets to meet up with Lucille. Frankly after seeing this trailer I truly no longer care. Check out the trailer below: 

Fangirl Thoughts: Shiva is the beautiful tiger that you get to see at the end of the trailer. Frankly the only thing that I care about in the trailer at this point. I remember when I was reading the comic and it took me a moment to realize what I was reading. My brother texted me saying he has a tiger and I did not understand until I read the comic. I was like OMG! There is a tiger! I just want to see how it all plays out in this season. Hopefully it makes me happy as a fan. 

Season 7 is to premiere on October 9th, 2016 on AMC.

Celebrity Writer and New York Times Best-Selling YA Author Margaret Stohl Relaunches Marvel Comic Series.  Marvel Comics is proud to present Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel as she takes on her new mantle as the most well-known Super Hero within the Marvel Universe! As the ashes of Civil War II settle, Captain Marvel must come to terms with her new superstar status-quo, but notoriety doesn’t necessarily mean she’s well liked. Thrust into the spotlight, Carol has come to realize that often times, popularity and pain come hand in hand.

The most recent addition to Marvel’s pool of top-tier and premier writing talent, new Captain Marvelwriter, Margaret Stohl (Black Widow: Forever Red, Beautiful Creatures), tells The Hollywood Reporter, “She will be one of the most popular heroes on the planet — but that’s not something she is very comfortable with. And of course she’s lost a lot of folks that she’s loved, so she has to cope with that, too.”

Critter's Corner: Batman: The Killing Joke Movie Review

I am not sure why they made such a good graphic novel into animation. Warning: This is not a kids movie! In fact, it is not an adult movie and for that matter not even a batman fan movie! Its a DC die hard fan movie but that is how far as it goes.

The Killing Joke is based on a graphic novel published in 1988 featuring the characters Batman and the Joker written by Alan Moore. This does not closely follow that masterpiece. It is more of a dark look at Barbra Gordon and her struggles with building a relationship with her mentor idol and weirdly love interest Bruce Wayne. In the movie it follows Barbra for the most part having little to none about the Joker until dramatic actions taken by Barbara takes Bruce' interest elsewhere. 

The Joker enters midway into the cartoon and it awkwardly done. The cartoon depicts a poor tortured man desperate to make good for his family and makes some bad decisions that makes him the infamous nemesis Batman can't afford to ignore. 

The movie is not well done. The look at Barbara is not good. Her confidence as a crime fighter and partner of Batman is not there. Her inability to not see traps all over the place and chasing a criminal's love interest is silly. The introduction of the Joker was clumsy and Batman's coldness to what transpired is disturbing. I don't think young kids need to see this movie and I am not sure if teens really get it. I was surprised after the success of Batman: Bad Blood, DC would go in this direction. 

The cartoon does have very good actors like Mark Hamil playing the Joker (he is great). However, the script is poor and trying to go scene to scene is not well done. If you want a rental and into the Joker or a DC Fan you want to see this one. Everyone else would be confused and probably lose interest quickly. There are moments but not many and may confuse the not so DC Fan.

This movie only gets 2 1/2 thumbs up

DC's Justice League Trailer Released at SDCC

DC decided to come out swinging at SDCC and presented fans wish various trailers that we all were excited to see. Check out the Justice League trailer below.

Justice League Story Line: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Fangirl Thoughts: The trailer looked great. It was well done and frankly what we should have had first and skipped the whole Batman vs Superman movie all together but that's just my opinion. If you have read my posts earlier or listen to me on various podcasts then you known that I am truly excited for Aquaman. He does not get the respect that he deserves and based off this trailer he will be kicking butt and taking names and doing more than just talking to fish.

I look forward to this move that is set to release November 17th, 2017.

THE LOST BOYS never grow old, never die, and have a new miniseries from Vertigo on behalf of Warner Bros. Consumer Products hitting shelves October 12.

The team will deliver a gruesome and stylish return to the bloody boardwalks and big hair of 1987.  Santa Carla, California, is on edge. The eccentric coastal town and haven for the undead was finally returning to “normal” after its last supernatural scuffle left the local vampire coven’s leader dead and gave newcomers Michael and Sam Emerson a housewarming both violent and bizarre. Now the brothers must once again team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog as a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges from the aftermath to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star.

Wonder Woman Movie Trailer Released at SDCC

DC decided to come out swinging at SDCC and presented fans wish various trailers that we all were excited to see. Check out the Wonder Woman trailer below.

Wonder Woman Storyline: The Amazonian princess-warrior Diana left her lush tropical island to dwell in our urban cityscapes of glass and steel. Tutored in the ways of the Greek warriors, and outfitted with incredible gifts the Goddess bestowed upon her people, she becomes Paradise Island's emissary to civilization.

Fangirl Thoughts: Damn you DC! Just take my money now! I will admit I was skeptic of Gadot playing Wonder Woman but she stole the show in Batman vs Superman. I will admit I have a bit of a girl crush on her now! This trailer looks amazing and I am happy that we are getting a female super hero movie finally! There has been so many Batman and Superman movies but poor Wonder Woman, who is part of the trinity, just did not get the respect that she deserves. 

I am happy for this movie and I look forward to seeing it on June 2nd, 2017.

Heroic 13-Foot Statue Debuts at San Diego Comic Con
Before Journeying to Steve Rogers’ Birthplace of Brooklyn, NY

Since his creation in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, Captain America has gone through numerous evolutions, but always remains as one of the world’s most influential and inspiring Super Heroes. Kicking off a new phase of the year-long celebration of 75 years of Captain America, Marvel Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media have unveiled a slate of heroic activations taking place at San Diego Comic-Con and beyond to honor the First Avenger, along with a wide range of celebratory merchandise.
Headlining the Captain America 75th anniversary celebration, Marvel has collaborated with high-end collectibles maker Comicave Studios to create a one-of-a-kind Captain America statue that will be displayed at the Marvel booth #2329 at Comic-Con International on July 20. Comicave Studios worked closely with Marvel artists in New York and a Brooklyn-based sculptor to design the bronze tribute, standing at over 13 feet and weighing 1 ton. The statue will continue to stand tall on the show floor throughout San Diego Comic-Con for photo ops with fans, and 1/12-scale bronze replicas of the statue will be available for purchase. Plus, a custom comic book was created by Marvel Publishing writers and artists to integrate the statue into new storytelling. This one-of-a-kind comic will be available in limited quantities at San Diego Comic-Con and future Captain America events.

Jessica Jones Returns for All-new Marvel Comics Series from the Original Creative Team

After a decade, Jessica Jones is back in an all-new solo series! This fall, one of the most complex characters of the Marvel Universe returns for an all-new mystery from the original creative team -- Brian Michael Bendis (Civil War II, Invincible Iron Man, Spider-Man, Alias) Michael Gaydos (Alias, Avengers), and David Mack (Alias, Daredevil).

A lot has changed in the Marvel Universe over the past ten years and there are still many secrets hiding in the shadows. Secrets only a special woman like Jessica Jones can hope to uncover. So what haunting secrets from Jessica’s past come back to cause havoc? Speaking with IGN, series writer, Brian Michael Bendis said, "You're going to find out about it in the first issue. We're going to open up a book where Jessica's world has blown up in her face. She's at a place you'll least expect her. You're going to find all of her relationships have altered. And we're slowly going to find out why.”

A lot has happened to Jessica Jones since her debut, but the biggest difference that will be a factor in this new series is the baby girl, Danielle, she had with husband, and former Avenger, Luke Cage.

"Luke and Jessica have tried to raise a baby in a very dangerous environment. We talked about this during [New] Avengers, you're raising a baby in Avengers Mansion and somebody's trying to knock that building over every four days…so your perspective changes, and as an investigator and a detective her perspective will change because she's a mother,” continued Bendis. “I know some people are worried about that baby being dragged like a sack of potatoes that holds down the story or something, but I can think of many ways to tell the story celebrate this part of her life and at the same time complicates it to a degree that a lot of people can relate to. I think a lot of people can relate to trying to 'do it all.' Lord knows I can.”

What unsolved mysteries have fallen through the cracks and what dark secrets have been unrevealed within the Marvel Universe? Alias Investigations is open for business and Jessica Jones is on the case.

DEATH OF X #1 Ignites the Feud Between Mutants & Inhumans!

The X-Men and the Inhumans are on a collision course. Cyclops is missing and presumed dead. But the question on everyone’s lips is “why”? That question and more will be answered in DEATH OF X #1 – a new 4-issue series launching this fall! Superstar creators Jeff Lemire (Extraordinary X-Men) and Charles Soule (Uncanny Inhumans) are joined by fan-favorite artist Aaron Kuder (Action Comics) for an incendiary tale that will change the course of Mutantkind and Inhumanity alike!

As the Terrigen Mists roll across the Earth, it’s transformative properties are birthing new Inhumans across the Marvel Universe. But while the mists bring life to the Inhumans, they spell only doom for the X-Men, leaving dead or sickly mutants in their wake. As the Inhumans travel to Japan where the Terrigen Cloud has created a shocking new Inhuman, the X-Men travel to Muir Island where the cloud has caused something truly terrible. For the sake of his people, Cyclops must take action or face extinction. But how?

“Right now things are not good for mutantkind,” says Jeff Lemire, speaking with Entertainment Weekly. “On the flipside, Inhumans have been growing and becoming more prominent in the Marvel Universe. There is a lot of tension between these characters about that…’

“For both sides of this, it doesn’t affect just a small group of them,” continues Charles Soule. “It’s not just their livelihood and way of life but their very lives at stake, so they’re going to react the way you think they would.”

The burning questions will be answered here as the Inhumans and the X-Men’s untold past comes to light. But with the fuse lit, how long until this powder keg explodes? Find out this October as Soule, Lemire and Kuder bring you DEATH OF X #1!

Xbox One S 2TB launch edition arrives August 2

Last month, Microsoft revealed a new member of the Xbox One family, the Xbox One S. Xbox is excited to announce that the highly-anticipated 2TB Xbox One S launch edition will begin hitting shelves in select regions on August 2. That means that all pre-orders will arrive on August 2 and, for those of you that haven’t yet, you can still pre-order a 2TB Xbox One S launch edition through and select retailers. Availability is limited and demand is high so you’ll want to check with your local retailer for more information and pre-order your console soon.

Xbox One S is the most compact Xbox yet, 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One, and includes a built-in power supply. We also shifted one of the three USB ports and the pairing button to the front of the Xbox One S alongside the newly added IR blaster for increased accessibility.

Beyond the fresh new design, Xbox One S is the first and only console that allows you to watch Blu-ray movies and stream video in stunning 4K Ultra HD with High Dynamic Range (HDR). That means you’ll get to enjoy your favorite shows and movies in the clearest, most realistic video possible. With HDR support for video and gaming, Xbox One games like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, and Scalebound will look even better thanks to a higher contrast ratio between lights and darks, bringing out the true visual depth of your favorite games.


The Power of Grayskull and The Sword of Omens Collide this October. It’s the epic crossover event 30 years in the making! He-Man and the Masters of the Universe team up with the ThunderCats to make comic book and pop culture history! Scheduled to debut in October and published by DC Entertainment, this monthly miniseries will embroil heroes and villains—Masters, Mutants and ThunderCats—in a mind-blowing six-part comic book saga!

The story will be brought to life by the writing team of Mattel Head Writer and Masters of the Universe Lead Creative Rob David and Supervising Producer Lloyd Goldfine, with all-star artist Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) handling interiors and cover art.  "The Masters of the Universe and the ThunderCats are both global phenomena, beloved by millions. Teaming them up for one enormous story will prove to be a publishing event that fans simply cannot miss. This is something that transcends both comic book and pop culture," said DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras.

"For everyone out there who took different action figures and teamed them up to take on the world, this one’s for you," said co-writer Rob David, who recently wrote the storyline for the critically acclaimed He-Man: the Eternity War, published by DC Entertainment in 2015.  "Writing this crossover event is the thrill of a lifetime, and Rob and I can’t wait to get started," added co-writer Lloyd Goldfine. "You don’t wait 30 years and not go big!"

In his eternal desire to destroy the mighty ThunderCats, the evil Mumm-Ra quests for a weapon that can rival the legendary Sword of Omens: He-Man’s Sword of Power! But his dimension-spanning scheme launches a cataclysmic crisis that will, for the first time ever, unite Lion-O, Cheetara, Tygra, Panthro, WilyKit and WilyKat with He-Man, Battlecat, Teela, Man-At-Arms and the rest of the Masters of the Universe.

"The Power of Grayskull and the Great Eye of Thundera have aligned to make me the luckiest guy on all the earths!" explained artist Freddie E. Williams II. "He-Man and ThunderCats were my life when I was in grade school—family and friends knew I loved both cartoons so much. I used to pause episodes and draw from them, since they were so awesome. The He-Man/ThunderCats crossover is the fulfillment of a lifelong goal and my fanboy dream come true! I'm having a blast!"

HE-MAN/THUNDERCATS #1 debuts October 5, 2016.

Hickman and Coker launch new crypto-noir

Image Comics is pleased to announce the all-new, ongoing crypto-noir series THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS by New York Times and Eisner Award winning writer Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST) and Tomm Coker (Undying Love) will launch in in August.

THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is classic occultism where the various schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society: a secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep ALL OF US in our proper place.

“I’ve gotten to work on some pretty interesting books over the past few years,” said Hickman. “This is, by far, the most proud I’ve been. I can’t wait for people to read it.”

THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is a story about the power of dirty, filthy money… and exactly what kind of people you can buy with it.

THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS #1 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, August 10th.

Relive Past Glories with Nintendo’s Ultimate Retro Gaming Experience

Mini Collector’s Edition NES Includes 30 Classic NES Games

If you see a Nintendo Entertainment System on store shelves this holiday shopping season, you haven’t entered a time machine. (Unless everyone around you is wearing acid-washed jeans and neon leg warmers. If that’s the case, you may have unknowingly walked through a rift in the space-time continuum.) The most likely scenario is you are setting eyes on the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, launching in stores on Nov. 11 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. That’s right: The NES is back! But this isn’t the same NES that you fondly remember. This new nostalgia-fueled system is a near-identical, mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console and plugs directly into your high-definition TV using an included HDMI cable. The console comes complete with 30 NES games built in, including beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN, and Kirby’s Adventure.

“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.”

The system comes packaged with an HDMI cable, an AC adapter and one NES Classic Controller, which is patterned after the iconic design of the original NES controller. But you really just want to know the full list of 30 games, right? Feast your eyes on the fantastic collection of NES classics included with each and every system:
  • Balloon Fight™
  • Castlevania™
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest™
  • Donkey Kong™
  • Donkey Kong Jr. ™
  • Dr. Mario™
  • Excitebike™
  • Galaga™
  • Ice Climber™
  • Kid Icarus™
  • Kirby’s Adventure™
  • Mario Bros. ™
  • MEGA MAN® 2
  • Metroid™
  • PAC-MAN™
  • Punch-Out!! ™ Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics™
  • SUPER C™
  • Super Mario Bros.™
  • Super Mario Bros. ™ 2
  • Super Mario Bros. ™ 3
  • The Legend of Zelda™
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link™
There’s a little something for everyone: a nice mix of timeless favorites, cult classics and maybe even some games that you never got around to playing. Each is sure to bring back memories and produce plenty of new ones. You can even enjoy playing several of these games with two players by attaching a second NES Classic Controller, which will be sold separately at a suggested retail price of $9.99. A Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro can also be used (each sold separately).

When connected to a Wii Remote controller, the NES Classic Controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii system. Playing these retro games using a retro controller makes the experience that much more authentic. And if you ever need to step away from the NES Classic Edition in the middle of a tough level (or take a break to call one of Nintendo’s helpful Game Counselors*), don’t worry about losing any hard-earned progress. Each game has multiple suspend points, so you can start where you left off at a later time, no passwords needed.

What’s old is new again with the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition. Relive past glories. Finish off that boss you never beat. Save the galaxy and rescue the princess!

*Please only call if you have indeed entered a time machine. The Game Counselor program no longer exists in 2016.

They’re the Team you can Trust!

The security of the Marvel Universe is fractured. The world’s first line of defense, S.H.I.E.L.D., can no longer be trusted. The United States no longer has a super-spy agency with its best interests at heart – until now. Prepare for the U.S.Avengers! Billionaire playboy, Roberto Da Costa, has formed an all-new A.I.M. - American Intelligence Mechanics! Endorsed by the government and positioned to replace S.H.I.E.L.D., A.I.M. is here to protect the United States from the most outlandish threats imaginable. Their mission: save the world and have fun doing it!

Speaking with The Washington Post, series writer Al Ewing offered some insight into Da Costa’s desire to form the U.S.Avengers, “He came to America in his teens, and, as both an actual and fictional minority, a South American mutant, he’s experienced the ugly side of it. But he’s seen the best of America, too. He has an absolute love for his adopted country, and he’ll fight to the end to save lives and help people.”

Also featuring the All-new Iron Patriot, tomorrow's Captain America today, Thunderbolt Ross – the Red Hulk, the high-flying Cannonball, the unbeatable Squirrel Girl (along with her patriotic squirrel legion), and more, the U.S.Avengers will dare any danger - no matter how unbelievably awesome that danger might be - to defend freedom, democracy, apple pie, bald eagles and the electric guitar!
“U.S.Avengers will be a bold, brawny book that will distill everything that you love about and everything that you fear about this great land of ours into twenty pages of high-octane patriotic action every issue,” said series editor Tom Brevoort.

Action, adventure and intrigue wrapped in the red, white, and blue! The U.S.Avengers are touching down this December!

Remender and Opeña will enchant the comics industry

Bestselling writer Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, DEADLY CLASS, LOW, TOKYO GHOST), artist Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force, Fear Agent), and colorist Matt Hollingsworth (TOKYO GHOST, WYTCHES) launch an all-new, jaw-dropping ongoing series in SEVEN TO ETERNITY this September.

In SEVEN TO ETERNITY, The God of Whispers has spread an omnipresent paranoia to every corner of the kingdom of Zhal; his spies hide in every hall spreading mistrust and fear. Adam Osidis, a dying knight from a disgraced house, must choose between joining a hopeless band of magic users in their desperate bid to free their world of the evil God, or accepting his promise to give Adam everything his heart desires.

“Before our time at Marvel, Jerome and I began working together at Image ten years ago on titles such as Strange Girl and Fear Agent so it’s very fitting we return now to tell the tale of the Seven to Eternity,” said Remender. “All those years ago we began discussing doing an epic fantasy tale at some point, should the planets ever align. A unique take on the familiar genre full of action, unexpected twists, totally unique characters and a villain who might end up stealing the show. It’s taken us a decade to get it together, but the wait was worth it. During the past decade we’ve collaborated on numerous projects and fine-tuned our mighty nerd skills to a point where what we produce here will eclipse our past collaborations and consume all evil in the universe and give a new pony to every child. This is without question Jerome’s best work to date and when you add super champion of color jive Matt Hollingsworth, once their powers are mixed into the art cauldron, something new and terrifying is born, a new level of sequential science.”

Opeña added: "It's been a long time coming, so it's amazing that Rick and I are seeing a project we've been developing for years finally become a reality. Having Matt Hollingsworth join up with us makes it even more exciting and I hope readers will enjoy what we've all been tirelessly working on."

SEVEN TO ETERNITY takes readers on a hard road through the strange fantasy world of Zhal. All men have surrendered their freedom for fear. Now, one last free man must choose.

SEVEN TO ETERNITY #1  will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, September 21st.

Change the World. Meet Marvel’s CHAMPIONS!

The Marvel Universe is fractured. Heroes, who once stood together, now position themselves in opposition to one another. Idols of the Marvel Universe who once endured in the light are now shrouded within shades of gray, and the heroes of tomorrow are fed up! It’s time for a change. It’s time for a brighter tomorrow. Enter...the CHAMPIONS! They’re coming to you in Marvel’s CHAMPIONS #1 – a brand-new ongoing series launching this October as the flagship title of Marvel NOW!


Sheen To Star As Infamous Serial Killer Gary Ridgway
QC Entertainment, Dark Horse Entertainment and Sheen To Produce

QC Entertainment announced the company will produce and finance the true crime thriller “Green River Killer,” which marks the feature film directorial debut of acclaimed actor Michael Sheen who will also star in the film. The screenplay written by Sheen made the coveted The Black List in 2015, and is adapted from the Dark Horse Entertainment’s award-winning graphic novel Green River Killer: A True Detective Story. The novel was written by Jeff Jensen, based on his father Tom Jensen, and artist Jonathan Case.

The film will be produced by Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg, Sheen and QC Entertainment’s Sean McKittrick and Ray Mansfield. QC’s Edward H. Hamm Jr. and Shaun Redick will serve as Executive Producers. The film will be co-represented for domestic film sales by ICM Partners and QC Entertainment, which is the recently formed partnership between McKittrick, Hamm, Mansfield and Redick.

The film is the story of Tom Jensen, the man who spent twenty years looking for the ‘Green River Killer,’ and Gary Ridgway (to be played by Sheen), the man he caught. After a two-decade hunt and forty-nine official murders, the two men are forced to live and work together in a dark alliance to uncover the truth.

“Michael has written an elegant script which brings his sophisticated vision to subverting the typical serial killer movie,” said QC Principals McKittrick and Mansfield. “Jensen and Ridgway are terrific roles for both an actor of Michael’s caliber and the actor cast opposite him. As producers who have long championed actors making the move to directing, we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.”

“This is a dark story but one that ultimately finds hope and meaning in that darkness,” said Sheen. “The story of Tom and Gary, and how they are bound together in time, pulled me in from the beginning and wouldn’t let go. I hope that by now bringing it to life on screen it can make audiences feel the same way.”

“’Green River Killer’ presents the ultimate insider’s account of America’s most prolific serial killer,” said Dark Horse Entertainment President Mike Richardson. “Michael Sheen’s passion for the material was clear when he insisted on adapting the book on spec. His screenplay proves that Jeff Jensen’s Eisner Award-winning graphic novel is perfectly suited for the screen.”

Sheen is repped by ICM Partners, Tammy Rosen of Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management and attorneys James Adams and Ira Schreck of Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams LLP. The deal for Sheen was negotiated by ICM Partners and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams LLP. The deal for Dark Horse Entertainment was negotiated by attorney Keith G. Fleer. Ray Mansfield negotiated the deals on behalf of QC Entertainment.
