  • “Manifest”: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent, but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible. From executive producer/writer Jeff Rake, and executive producers Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke and comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.  The cast includes Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur. From Compari Entertainment and Jeff Rake Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, “Manifest” premieres Monday, September 24, at 10/9c pm NBC.  Become a fan of “Manifest” on Facebook at Facebook.com/NBCManifest, and follow the show on Twitter at @NBCManifest
  • “The 100”: Over the last four seasons The 100 have fought to survive against unimaginable odds, only to see the world end for a second time. Season five begins six years later, with our heroes still separated: Bellamy’s team in space, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) on the ground, and hundreds trapped in the bunker below. But when a massive prison ship descends upon the last survivable place on earth, The 100 must come together to reclaim their home. As two armies converge on one valley, alliances will shift, friends will become foes, and the march to war threatens to destroy all that’s left of the human race. Can our heroes break the cycle, or is humanity doomed to repeat the past? In this epic battle for survival, one thing is certain: there are no good guys.  Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, “The 100” is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Jason Rothenberg, Dean White and Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries”).  Starring Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Christopher Larkin, Richard Harmon, Tasya Teles and Henry Ian Cusick, the series airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW.  Become a fan on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CWThe100, and follow the show on Twitter at @CWThe100.
  • “Freedom Fighters: The Ray”: All his life, Ray Terrill has fought injustice, dreaming of making a real difference like his older brother, a Marine who was killed in Afghanistan. One day, he stumbles upon a dying superhero from another Earth and is stunned to find that this superhero looks just like him—because it is! The dying Ray Terrill of Earth-X transfers photokinetic energy to this Earth’s Ray, making him a superhero – THE RAY. However, Ray quickly learns being a Super Hero isn’t all hanging muggers from streetlamps and fighting giant robots. As the evil Nazi New Reichsman of Earth-X, led by Overgirl, close in, The Ray must learn to harness his powers by coming to terms with his true self, even if that means also finally coming out of the closet to his parents. The fate of Earth-X depends on it!  Based on the DC characters, the animated series is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio.  New episodes stream on CW Seed, starting July 18.

Baltimore Comic-Con 2018 Welcome Iconic Creators of Creative Icons

Press Release:

Come to the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor this September 28-30 for the 2018 Baltimore Comic-Con! Purchase your tickets now and avoid lines at the ticket counter. The Baltimore Comic-Con will feature some of the industry’s most impactful talent, including Batman’s Harvey Bullock creator Howard Chaykin, Blue Devil creator Paris Cullins, Preacher creator Garth Ennis, Black Lightning creator Tony Isabella, New Mutants creator Bob McLeod, Power Pack creator Louise Simonson, Beta Ray Bill creator Walter Simonson, Thanos creator Jim Starlin, Big Hero 6 creator Gus Vazquez, and John Constantine creator Rick Veitch, just to name a few.

Howard Victor Chaykin is a longtime veteran of the comic book business. As a cartoonist — both writing and drawing — he has been a major influence on the direction of comics, referred to frequently as one of the principle architects of the modern comic book. His signature creation, American Flagg!, introduced a new level of narrative complexity, depth of character, and point of view in its text, not to mention a previously unseen level of design and craft to the visual nature of an all-too-frequently staid and timid medium. Chaykin continues to produce work that pushes the envelope of concept, context, and content in comics. Last year’s The Divided States of Hysteria, thanks to social media, enraged an entirely new generation of the willfully ignorant who might have had a better case if they’d actually read the damned book. Chaykin’s new series, Hey Kids! Comics!, is a fictionalized history of the comic book business, a love letter written with just a frisson of acid in the ink, to the field he’s loved and called home for over four decades.

Paris Cullins landed in DC Comics’ intern program after repeatedly bringing in samples of his work in the 1970s. His first work was featured in Secrets of Haunted House #42, and he went onto work on other DC horror titles like Ghosts, The Unexpected, and Weird War Tales. Cullins transitioned to super-hero titles, doing back-up or assistant work on Green Lantern, Justice League of America, The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl, and The Fury of Firestorm before taking on his first work on a title for his co-creation, Blue Devil. While he spent much of his career working at DC on titles such as Batman, The Forever People, and The New Gods, Cullins has drawn Richie Rich and Hot Stuff at Harvey Comics, Hyperkind for Marvel’s Razorline imprint, and Shi for Crusade Comics. In addition to his work in comics, Cullins has spent time at advertisement agencies doing storyboards for TV commercials, and has provided full-color storyboards and designs for video games.

Garth Ennis broke into the American Comic scene in 1991, taking over the writing reins on Hellblazer.

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) returns home to begin a new chapter in his life where he will confront a challenge unlike any he’s ever faced: fatherhood. The aftermath of Adrian Chase’s maniacal scheme throughout season five reminded Oliver how strongly he values family, both biological and chosen. With support from his team, Oliver is determined to embrace his new role as father to William while still serving and protecting his city as mayor and the Green Arrow. But when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City and threaten his role as protector on three fronts, Oliver is forced to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family.”
