Get the Third Blue Monday Special and Be Nobody's Fool - 21/10/2002
Oni Press have announced all the spicy details for the final installment of the recent run of holiday-themed BLUE MONDAY one-shots. Series creator Chynna Clugston-Major will team with the publisher to release NOBODY’S FOOL in February. The regular-sized comic will be broken into two stories, one for Saint Patrick’s Day and one for April Fool’s Day.

"We went round and round on what to do for the final special," commented Oni editor in chief Jamie S. Rich. "There was talk of Easter, to see what Chynna would do to the Easter bunny and the holiest of holidays, but our two favorite choices were St. Patty’s and April Fool’s. Finally, we decided to just do both." (Read More)

William Gaines: Tales From Beyond The Crypt - 19/10/2002
In this month's edition of THE COMICS JOURNAL Audio Archive comics publisher Fantagraphics is paying a posthumous call on legendary EC Comics publisher WILLIAM GAINES. Gaines is reported to be one of publishers responsible for perhaps the first genuine renaissance in the comic book field, and later served as an inspiration for much of the underground comix movement. In these MP3s, the genial Mr. Gaines discusses horror comics, his testimony before the 1950s Senate Subcommittee hearings on "Comics and Juvenile Delinquency," the creation of the much-reviled Comics Code Authority, Harvey Kurtzman, MAD Magazine, and much more.

Limited Edition Arwyn Statue By Vincenzo Cucca and Ciro Vignef - 17/10/2002
The beautiful archer Arwyn, and her faithful dog Kreeg, from the hit CrossGen Comics title Sojourn, has been brought to life in the first CrossGen statue by Dynamic Forces! Standing at 7 1/2" tall on a 4" wide base, the beautiful Arwyn has been modelled in meticulous detail in a high-quality, limited edition statue. The painting, done by Dan Lane, complements the CrossGen sculpts done by Vincenzo Cucca and Ciro Vignes as Arwyn stands surveying the countryside for the evil Mordath. An Ashleigh statue is also on the way.

Christine Norrie's Cheat Marks Second Original Graphic Novel - 16/10/2002
In April 2002, Oni Press published their first original graphic novel—DUMPED by Andi Watson. The bittersweet tale of relationships that rise and fall and the broken people caught on the waves of romance was an instant hit with comics readers, and continues to be one of Oni’s best back catalogue titles. Now, nearly a year later, Oni is looking to repeat that success with CHEAT, the first full-length work by writer/artist Christine Norrie (HOPELESS SAVAGES).

CHEAT is the story of Janey and Marc, a married couple in modern-day NYC. When Marc is forced to go on another in a long line of business trips, a lonely Janey ends up spending time with Davis—whose wife is, coincidentally, also out of town. One thing leads to another, and they end up spending the night together. What follows are Janey’s attempts to resume her normal life, as she struggles with the decision to tell her husband what she has done and considers the long-term ramifications adultery can have on a relationship.

Lawerence to Direct Hellblazer Movie - 14/10/2002
From Sci Fi Wire comes the news that Francis Lawerence, who has directed video clips for prestigous groups and artists such as Aerosmith, Destiny's Child, Jennifer Lopez, Pink, Will Smith and Britney Spears, is in talks to make his feature directorial debut on Constantine, a film adaptation of the DC-Vertigo comic book Hellblazer, with no less than Matrix star Keanu Reeves in the title role.

Reeves will star as John Constantine, a man who dabbles in the occult and teams with a female police officer to fight evil forces, the trade paper reported. Kevin Brodbin (The Glimmer Man) wrote the original script, with a rewrite by Mark Bomback and Frank Cappello.

Unfortunately for Constantine fans, a draft of the script (which adapts Garth Ennis' famous "Dangerous Habits" story-line) has already received a critical review on TNMC.org. Follow the link above for the full, spoiler-packed review.

Code 6 Comics To Begin Publishing Crossovers - 6/10/2002
Code 6 Comics, a publishing arm of CrossGeneration Comics designed as an alternative for creators looking for a home for projects set outside of the CrossGen continuity, have announced they will be launching a new monthly comedy adventure series titled THE CROSSOVERS by veteran comics writer and novelist Robert Rodi and artist Mauricet in January 2003. The Crossovers is the second scheduled title from the new Code 6 line.

THE CROSSOVERS is the first foray by Code 6 into satire and humor. It follows the December release of the fantasy series R.A. Salvatore's DemonWars.

THE CROSSOVERS is the story of what appears on the outside to be a normal, suburban family, but on the inside is something completely different. Set in a world reminiscent of a TV sit-com, the Crossovers family is made up of father Carter, mother Calista, daughter Cristina, and son Clifford. All appears normal with them until they each head off on their own and the real action begins. Carter's secret identity is that of Archetype, his city's costumed defender. Calista goes from soccer mom to slayer of vampires. Cris travels through a dimensional portal that transfers her onto the field of battle as Eradika the warrior woman. And conspiracy theories and aliens follow Clifford wherever he goes. (Read More)
