The latest news from PAPERCUTZ: SDCC, Trolls, and more
Hi BC Refugees readers,
Happy Monday! It's pretty dreary here in New York City, so we're going to try our best to brighten the day!
This weekend, Papercutz was at San Diego Comic Con, where we held a panel celebrating the launch of our new GUMBY comic (and of course celebrating Gumby himself!) Above is a picture of Gumby and Pokey hanging with the crowd outside the panel, and at our website:
saying, "Osborne and Fish deliver a heartrending YA drama with this graphic novel, showcasing how the building blocks of a fairy tale can be reassembled into something new and enlightening." The book will be released in the next couple of weeks!
On August 8th, Papercutz will release the third volume of our TROLLS series, "Party with the Bergens!" Based on the wildly popular movie (which is, of course, based on the wildly popular dolls), our TROLLS series has been a hair-raising hit!
In this all-new, 64-page graphic novel, the Trolls are being thrown a surprise pizza party by none other than...The Bergens! But when the tomato sauce, cheese and dough disappear unexpectedly, they improvise and invent their own pizzas using gummy worms, frosting, sprinkles, and, of course, chocolate! It'll either be the best party ever or a total disaster...
It's an exciting time to be a TROLLS fan! We know it's a bit early to start thinking about the holidays, but this winter, NBC will air Trolls Holiday, a funtastic comedy-musical special starring your faves Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick! And the saga of the Trolls and the Bergens will continue beyond that with a Trolls television series, airing on Netflix next year! But before all that, you can check out your favorite hirsute party animals in TROLLS: "Party with the Bergens!"
I wasn't actually a huge fan of Robert Kirkman when I first started reading his books. He was competent, sure, but I didn't see the appeal-- The Irredeemable Ant-Man was a boring side story in the middle of Civil War and The Initiative (although I've since changed my mind about this), and his Ultimate X-Men run was, in many places, a mixed bag (although I did very much enjoy his "Phoenix?" storyline). And Marvel Zombies just seemed like a ridiculous idea--not that I bothered to try it at the time. Now, though? I've completely reevaluated my opinion on his work, and when his name is attached to a project, I'm far more likely to give it a look. I don't know if I'd classify him as a master storyteller or a comics icon--but he's very skilled, he has an incredible knack for dialog, and he writes stories that, no matter how ridiculous, seem real . In a medium where characters frequently violate the rules of physics, that's not alway
VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT “If You Want Blood” one-shot (Bump and Grind Comics, August 2013, second printing with foreword by film maker Paul Campion) Writers: The Emperor + Alex Ronald. Artist: Alex Ronald. Letterer: Jim Campbell. Original Concept: Alex Ronald. (Parental Advisory, Adult Content) Limited print run, but digital copies are available from http://www.vampirevixens.co.uk/ If you can’t figure out what this comic is about from that title, then I’m guessing you’ve been living for decades in a cave without a DVD player and no access to cable television. VAMPIRE VIXENS OF THE WEHRMACHT is a fast-paced horror comic driven by action, rooted in World War II history, and dripping with blood, gore and tantalizing sexual imagery. What makes it work is a light-hearted approach to the subject matter, all in fun but never silly or stupid. You may find yourself laughing at several of the scenarios or chuckling at the devilish dialogue. VAMPIRE VIXENS O
