"Igor's been blowing everyone here away with his new style and interpretation of this important event in X-Men history, the sequel to arguably the one of the greatest graphic novels ever published, and inspiration to next month's X2 blockbuster.

"Igor Kordey fans are going to want to check out what's turning into some of the best work of his career, and current X-TREME X-MEN fans are going to have the pleasure of enjoying the work of yet another great artist."

Oni Press invites you to a wedding - 14/04/2003
Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir, along with their artist, Jose Garibaldi, and their publisher, Oni Press, cordially invite you to their new original graphic novel, MARIA'S WEDDING, Wednesday, the ninth of July, Two Thousand and Three at a comic shop near you.

Few events exude as much joy, happiness and hope as a wedding, and for the Pirellis these ceremonies mean even more. Pirelli weddings are about tradition and family as much as they're about the happy couple—or at least they used to be. When Joseph Pirelli married Matthew it rocked the clan to its knees. Now a year later, the tension and downright animosity between different factions of the family have turned Maria's special day into a powder keg. And poor Frankie, Joseph's outspoken brother, is holding the match. But while some fear the fuse being lit, others in the family are ready for and secretly looking forward to the blow-up. Frankie, on the other hand, thinks his reputation for speaking his mind is undeserved. He just wants to see his favorite cousin get married and maybe rekindle his childhood romance with Maria's maid of honor, Brenna. Can Frankie balance the Pirellis expectations of him with his own or will the scales tip and bring the whole ceremony crashing down? (Read More)

Lady Death crowned Book of the Month - 11/04/2003
The heat keeps building on BRIAN PULIDO'S LADY DEATH. Only a week after its debut issue sold out, the dark fantasy series has been crowned "Book of the Month" by Wizard, The Comics Magazine.

Praising the character's recent re-imagining, the magazine's staff writes: "(Brian) Pulido-ably assisted by artist Ivan Reis-has steered the former Chaos! Comics 'bad girl' in a radical new direction…in favor of high fantasy and historical fiction." Comparing the title to the blockbuster Lord of the Rings films, the staff exclaims "One of the rare series that truly deserves an 'epic-in-the-making' banner, LADY DEATH re-establishes…(the hero) as the center of a powerful, character-driven story with battle sequences that would make even (director) Peter Jackson's head spin!"

"We all took a big chance re-imagining a character that has meant so much to so many hardcore fans, but I'm grateful it's paid off," stated Brian Pulido. "It's like what Hannibal used to say on The A-Team: 'I love it when a plan comes together.' Our plan to re-invent Lady Death really has come together--and I've received tons of letters, e-mails, and message board posts from both new and longtime readers who are psyched and ready to take the ride!"

Fans of the medieval warrior can read the entire article in Wizard #141, on sale in comics shops on April 30th. Meanwhile, back issues of the Code 6 series are available while supplies last.

SLG Publishes Zeet, a Storybook by FSc - 9/04/2003
FSc, the Singaporean artist whose whimsical and astounding artwork illustrates Serena Valentino's spooky stories in SLG Publishing's Nightmares and Fairy Tales, now has a storybook of her own, Zeet: A Little Book of Alphabetical Dispositions, coming from SLG Publishing in June 2003.

Zeet is a creature who mysteriously manifests itself from the dreams of a young girl named Apparrliss and leads her on a frightening, destructive journey backward through the alphabet. The distraught and horrified Apparrlis must escape Zeet, who ravenously devours every creature he comes across, and try to untangle herself from the chaos he's caused.

SLG Publishing's editor-in-chief Jennifer de Guzman has nothing but enthusiasm for FSc's work. "I've heard people try to describe FSc's work as 'a cross between' this and that, but there is really no high-concept way of getting across what her artwork truly is," she said. "It's so wildly original and absolutely gorgeous, and with the surreal story of Zeet she really goes all-out, imagery-wise."

Zeet will be a 32-page one-shot storybook in a special 5.25" x 6.75" format, to be released in June 2003. A preview of Zeet is available at SLG Publishing's website, www.slavelabor.com.

Thomas Jane to play Punisher! - 7/04/2003
his has been rumored for some time but now it is official -- THOMAS JANE has signed on as the title role in Artisan Pictures/Marvel Studios THE PUNISHER, the feature film production based on the enormously popular comic series of the same name. The film is being produced by Marvel Studios’ CEO Avi Arad (Spider-Man, X-Men, Daredevil, The Hulk) and producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Hulk, Aliens, The Terminator) with renowned screenwriter Jonathan Hensleigh writing and directing. With the project’s other major roles currently being cast, The Punisher will commence principal photography in early July 2003 and the event film will arrive in theatres during the summer of 2004. Artisan Pictures President of Production, Richard Saperstein and Marvel’s Arad made the announcement.

The Punisher rises out of the ongoing Artisan and Marvel joint venture designed to develop, produce and distribute Marvel character based programming across all media with profits generated from each project shared equally after distribution fees are incurred. In addition to The Punisher, the two entities are in active development on the big screen adaptation of the venerable character, Iron Fist.

The Punisher tells the story of FBI undercover agent, Frank Castle, who until now has beat considerable odds. A former Special Forces operative, he is finally moving out of the field and into a desk job – and a normal life with his wife and son. Then Castle’s world is shaken to its core by a nightmare he has longed feared: his family is executed as a repercussion from his final undercover assignment. With unparalleled intensity, ferocious intelligence and fearless actions, Castle seeks to punish the murderers – and finds the one thing he least expected: redemption. (Read More)

Bear! A new series from SLG - 5/04/2003
He's Bear, he's Bear! He's made of human hair! You push his nose and his head grows! He's Bear, he's Bear, he's Bear!

When you're only twelve-inch high teddy bear, you're at an disadvantage anyway, but Bear has more pressing worries on his mind. His days are spend watching TV on his owner Karl's couch, with short breaks for biscuit-eating or reminiscences on his long, distinguished, and quite frankly, rather unlikely military career. This would be a sweet enough life if it weren't for Karl's cat, Looshkin. Driven purely by sadism, the sociopathic Looshkin has devoted himself entirely to his talents of destruction, violence, and creepy ickiness. And, more often than not, Bear is the target of Looshkin's evil schemes.

This the world of Bear, a new quarterly series full of twisted humor, mad adventures, and cute, foul-mouthed animals, coming in June from SLG Publishing. Written and drawn by Jamie Smart, Bear is the British artist's first comic book series. (Read More)
