CA – Indiana Jones & The City of the Gods

Press Release:

Join The Comic Bug on Saturday, December 6th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm for a fun, dramatic evening at the Manhattan Beach location for a table read of Frank Darabont’s unfilmed classic INDIANA JONES and the CITY OF THE GODS!

When the script leaked a year or so after INDIANA JONES and the CRYSTAL SKULL was released, hard-core Indy fans were in an uproar that this, in many ways, superior, script wasn’t the one chosen by the powers that be when it came time to roll cameras on the new Indy film.

Witness as some of comic-dom’s greatest talents sit down to chew up the scenery on what might be the most unique event The Comic Bug has ever offered!

STARRING:

RICHARD STARKINGS as Professor Oxley
RAFAEL NAVARRO as Marion Ravenwood’s husband Peter Belasko
BARBARA KESEL as Marion Ravenwood
JOSHUA DYSART as the narrator/scene director

and introducing F.C. Brandt as INDIANA JONES!

The man in the hat is back!

Here’s a little more about the HELLBOY ARTIST’S EDITION from the fine folks at IDW!

“Mike Mignola is one of the preeminent comics creators of the past 25 years. His career was already firmly established for his outstanding work on characters like Batman, Wolverine, a myriad of beautiful covers and more… And then came Hellboy. Mike’s iconic creation struck a meteoric chord with fans from the very start and has not abated in the 20 years since his debut.

This Artist’s Edition features the first five issues of Hellboy in Hell as well as a wealth of historic supplementary material: the first three Hellboy stories-the two initial four-pagers, produced for promotional purposes, and the 10-page story from John Byrne’s Nextmen #21- plus The Corpse, and two other tales selected by Mignola for inclusion.

Each page of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy Artist’s edition is shot from the original art and showcases Mignola’s gorgeous work as closely as possible to the physical page-this is a book for fans of great storytelling and students of the craft.”

Scott Allie, Dave Stewart, and Tyler Crook appear at Things From Another World on Saturday March 22nd from 7:00 till 10:00 p.m. to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of HELLBOY!

Press Release:

Celebrate 20 years of comics’ favorite paranormal detective during Hellboy Day March 22 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Portland TFAW!

This can’t-miss event kicks off with a Q&A with Scott Allie, Hellboy editor for 20 years and writer of Abe Sapien; Dave Stewart, Eisner Award-winning Hellboy colorist; and Tyler Crook, Eisner Award-winning B.P.R.D. artist; a signing will follow.

Attendees will enjoy Hellboy Day exclusives from Dark Horse, raffle prizes–including items signed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola–a photo op with “Hellboy” himself, portrayed by Kyle Yount, and free food and beer (21+ with valid ID).

Creator Mike Mignola debuted Hellboy, his wildly popular demon detective, just over 20 years ago through Dark Horse Comics. Mignola’s unique blend of Lovecraftian influences, action-adventure, and humor–as well as his striking, unique art style–quickly made the series a success. Since then, the universe has expanded into additional titles like B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, and more.

Mark your calendars and come make a toast to Hellboy March 22!
