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)

Middleton signs with Marvel - 2/04/2003
Marvel Comics is pleased to announce that artist Joshua Middleton has agreed to an exclusive creator contract with the publisher through the year 2004. Middleton will be brining his unique brand of comic book art to Marvel as regular cover artist of the May-debuting NEW MUTANTS ongoing series, as well as interior artist for the enigmatic "NYX" series, debuting later in 2003.

Middleton's agreement gives him the opportunity to pursue all aspects of the artistic process for his Marvel work - from pencils to inks to colors ... a challenge the artist has enthusiastically accepted.

"What has pleased me so much is Marvel's willingness to embrace my process, allowing me to create good work the only way I feel I've been successful - on my own," said Middleton. "It has not been my experience that this is normally the case in the mainstream arena, so the notion that I could work for Marvel Comics and be able to handle every aspect of the art is just remarkable."

Middleton described the "heart" of his relationship with Marvel as, "To produce something beautiful, and hopefully memorable." (Read More)

One Plus One adds up to bright new future - 1/04/2003
With the final issue of ONE PLUS ONE reaching comics shops today, writer Neal Shaffer and Daniel Krall are preparing to follow up their successful debuts with all-new projects. In November, Neal Shaffer will release the original graphic novel LAST EXIT BEFORE TOLL, his collaboration with penciller Christopher J. Mitten and digital inker Dawn Pietrusko. Daniel Krall's FOLLOW ME CLOSELY, another original graphic novel, will be released in the first quarter of 2004, and then the team will reunite for the second ONE PLUS ONE.

"For me, Shaffer and Krall really changed the game in comics in 2002," said Oni Press editor in chief Jamie S. Rich. "ONE PLUS ONE was a stunning first effort. Their style of storytelling is subtle and complex, and I finished every page with a hunger to know what would happen on the next one. The fact that they want to branch out and work individually is a concept I have zero problem with—since it means twice as many quality comics." (Read More)
