Hollywood goes Crossgen - 11/03/2003
Who said that the road between comic books and Hollywood was a one-way street? Not only are entertainment giants developing a growing line of feature films and television programs based on nearly every CrossGen title, but they are also now bringing their original ideas to CrossGen Entertainment in order to create all-new comic books.

Director Chuck Russell (The Mask, Eraser, and The Scorpion King) and Bob Gale, Academy Award nominated screenwriter of the Back to the Future movies, will each write six-issue mini-series for CGEs Code 6 imprint. Chuck Dixon, writer of BRATH, CRUX, SIGIL, and WAY OF THE RAT, will edit both series.

Gale, the newly announced screenwriter of the upcoming Meridian CGI animated feature, will pen the action thriller ILLUSTRATED WARRIORS. While readers will remember his character-driven work from his courtroom drama in Daredevil, this is the first time Gale will transform his own creations into a comic book series. (Read More)

Thunderbolts gets $2.25 cover price - 7/03/2003
Due to the overwhelmingly enthusiastic response by readers and retailers to the bold, new direction of the THUNDERBOLTS that began with February's issue #76, Marvel is pleased to announce that a planned price increase to $2.99 that was slated to take effect with April's THUNDERBOLTS #78 has been cancelled, and that the ongoing monthly series will retain its low $2.25 cover price.

Under the creative direction of writer John Arcudi and up-and-coming superstar penciler Francisco Ruiz Velasco, THUNDERBOLTS #76 completely reinvented the title, introducing readers to the seamy underbelly of the supervillain community, where C-list badguys without the ambition, brains or power to be real Marvel Universe menaces bash each other's skulls in for a few measly bucks in an underground "Fight Club"-style network!

Epting launches El Cazador - Cariello joined Crux - 6/03/2003
The CrossGen family continues to grow as artist Sergio Cariello (Azrael: Agent of the Bat) has journeyed from Gotham City to Tampa. Having previously worked with writer Chuck Dixon on titles such as Batman/Wildcat and Catwoman/Wildcat, Cariello will again team with Dixon as new penciler of the ongoing series CRUX. This move allows critically acclaimed artist Steve Epting to continue his run with Dixon as they launch EL CAZADOR, a new high seas pirate adventure series unveiled at the 2003 MegaCon.

"As much as I hate to see Steve leave his signature CrossGen title, Im excited that Sergio is aboard, stated Dixon. I worked with him on two projects while we were both at DC and had a blast. Hes going to bring a new look to CRUX that will mesh well with the direction the book is taking. Hes the consummate pro and I cant wait to see him fall under the CrossGen Effect: that certain something that makes any artist who comes here do the best work of their career." (Read More)

You can never have too much Hopeless Savages - 5/03/2003
Nearly three years have passed since the Hopeless-Savage family had their debut in the original ONI PRESS COLOR SPECIAL, so it's only fitting that Oni Press celebrate this anniversary with the first issue of the third series in the popular franchise. Debuting in June, TOO MUCH HOPELESS SAVAGES! reunites the Eisner-nominated creative team of Jen Van Meter and Christine Norrie. And to make things extra special, we're moving the action off the North American continent-the entire family is taking a trip to Hong Kong!

"GROUND ZERO was very much based around the family home," Van Meter explained. "Though the comics have been about showing the Hopeless-Savages as a normal, loving family, we shouldn't forget that the initial concept was they are a very special family that just happens to form a cohesive unit. As we saw in the first series, all of the children are involved in various exceptional endeavors. That includes Arsenal."

The initial impetus for Arsenal's trip is a karate match in Hong Kong, rematching her against a brutal rival from her days of early competition. She is accompanied by her boyfriend Claude and his brother Henry, who happens to be the boyfriend of Arsenal's brother Twitch (how is that for complicated romance?). Claude and Henry are going to be introducing their significant others to their grandmother for the very first time-and that includes the question of how she'll react to Henry bringing a boy home.

New title, same great content - 28/02/2003
CrossGen Entertainment today announced that because another party previously reserved the title "Edge" for use in comics, CGE's Compendia series of the same name has transformed its title into VECTOR. The title change will occur with the May 2003 issue, which also contains the first chapter of SOLUS, the new galaxy spanning adventure by Barbara Kesel and George Prez.

"While the name has changed from EDGE to VECTOR with issue #13, it is most definitely the same series. That's why we're not renumbering it," explained CGE vice president sales & marketing Chris Oarr. "Back volumes of EDGE are still available, and neither Diamonds order codes nor the ISBNs have changed."

Now available for order in the March issue of Diamond Comic Distributors's Previews catalog, the Traveler sized anthology also contains the latest chapters of SCION, THE FIRST, MYSTIC, SIGIL, WAY OF THE RAT, and RUSE. Priced at only $7.95 US, the 192-page volume rockets into stores on May 28th.

Andi Watson returns to Oni for new series - 26/02/2003
Andi Watson, the acclaimed creator of DUMPED and THE COMPLETE GEISHA, is returning to monthly comics in June, 2003. No, we're not talking about his writing duties on Marvel's NAMOR series, we're talking about his new Oni Press series, LOVE FIGHTS. Set in a world where superheroes really exist, LOVE FIGHTS is a romantic tale of how ordinary people have trouble connecting in a world where extraordinary circumstances often get in the way.

The book stars Jack, a penciller for the comic book adventures of real-life superhero The Flamer, and Nora is a junior reporter at a capes-and-tights tabloid. He sees the superpowered as self-centered nuisances, whereas she finds them fascinating and views them as her answer to career success. With such differing opinions, aren't they destined to fall in love and find it impossible to get together?

"The romantic comedy genre is a fun one," Watson explained. "You get to create two unique characters with their own quirks and foibles. You then get to bump their personalities together and make them miserable, vacillating between points of high comedy and weepy melodrama. Throw in superheroes, and really, anything is possible."

Rucka and Queen & Country find new artist - 25/02/2003
Oni Press is pleased to announce details of the newest story arc in Greg Rucka's QUEEN & COUNTRY, set to kick off this spring with May's issue sixteen. Joining Rucka for this five-issue tale of British intelligence agent Tara Chace is artist Carla Speed McNeil, creator of the critically acclaimed series FINDER.

"I admit it. I'm an awards show geek," series editor James Lucas Jones commented. "I love Oscar and Golden Globe pools and trying to guess who's going to take what home. In comics we have the Eisners and they're even more fun because I have a vested interest in the outcome. When last year's nominations were revealed I couldn't help but notice the number of nods that went to both Greg and Carla. They had five nominations each! No one else had more. I was already a fan of Carla's work but seeing her and Greg together in that exclusive little group is what gave me the idea to approach her for QUEEN & COUNTRY." (Read More)
