How To Train Your Dragon Comics On Their Way From Dark Horse

JOURNEY BACK TO THE ISLE OF BERK FOR ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL ADVENTURES IN 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—You’ve seen them on the big screen. You’ve ridden with them on television. In 2016, the dragons are coming to comics.

At New York Comic Con 2015, DreamWorks Animation and Dark Horse Comics announced a comprehensive original graphic novel program to expand the incredible mythology of How to Train Your Dragon, the Academy Award® nominated and Golden Globe® winning film series.

Releasing in 2016, How to Train Your Dragon: The Serpent’s Heir begins mere hours after the events of How to Train Your Dragon 2 as Hiccup and Toothless are thrust into their new roles as chief and alpha. The graphic novels mark an exciting expansion in the Dragons universe, with the first look into what happens to the riders following the conclusion of the second film.

Co-written by Dean DeBlois, writer/director of the How to Train Your Dragon films, and Richard Hamilton, writer on Dragons: Race to the Edge, the How to Train Your Dragon graphic novels are an essential piece of the puzzle for all fans of Hiccup, Toothless, and the dragon riders of Berk.

How to Train Your Dragon was an instant animation classic,” said Dark Horse president and publisher Mike Richardson. “We couldn’t be more excited to work with Dean, Richard, and DreamWorks Animation to help continue the adventures of these great characters.”

“I am excited to be writing this next chapter in the How to Train Your Dragon universe,” said DeBlois. “Dark Horse is a perfect home for these new original stories and Richard and I are thrilled to know they will be in the hands of our incredible fans very soon.”

How to Train Your Dragon: The Serpent’s Heir will be available in 2016.

AVATAR, THE #1 MOVIE OF ALL TIME MAKES ITS COMIC BOOK DEBUT WITH DARK HORSE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NEW YORK, NY —During a special panel at New York Comic Con 2015, Dark Horse Comics in conjunction with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment announced that AVATAR, the highest-grossing film in history, will expand into the world of comic books in anticipation of the three upcoming film sequels.

In a special prerecorded message, James Cameron revealed that the new series of comics will help shed more light on the mythology and history of the beloved film franchise.

Cameron also noted, “For the past twenty-seven years, Dark Horse has been associated with my films The Terminator, Aliens, and The Abyss. I am excited that between now and the release of the first sequel, Dark Horse Comics will be bringing you new adventures from Pandora—covering the time before, during, and after the events of the original AVATAR film.”

“James Cameron is one of the film industry’s greatest talents. His films, always on the cutting edge technologically, feature rich characters and amazing worlds, a fact reflected in AVATAR’s status as the all time box-office champion,” said Dark Horse president and publisher Mike Richardson. “We couldn’t be more excited about working with James and his team at Lightstorm to expand the breathtaking world of Pandora.”

“We’re excited to be working with our longtime partner Dark Horse Comics to expand upon the rich storytelling of the AVATAR universe, providing a whole new way for fans to interact. There are so many possible stories to explore and this is just beginning,” said Jeffrey Godsick, President of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products.

See a special message from James Cameron to AVATAR fans on YouTube, and stay tuned for more details on the AVATAR comic book series in the coming months.

Released in 2009, James Cameron’s AVATAR is the highest-grossing film in motion picture history, with a box office gross of nearly $2.8 billion. Mesmerizing all ages across the globe with its otherworldly visuals and groundbreaking special effects, the film quickly became a worldwide phenomenon so popular it will be followed by three sequels, with the first sequel due for release in late 2017. AVATAR was named best drama at the Golden Globes and won Academy Awards for cinematography, visual effects and art direction.

What Exclusives To Be On The Lookout For At NYYC 2015

“It’s time! It’s time! NYCC is upon us!”

As those words ring through my brain, I sit here thinking about how fun and hectic the next several days will be as New York Comic Con descends upon the city that never sleeps. Being an east coast guy and never having made the pilgrimage to San Diego, this is what I consider “Comic-Con”.

Over the years, the show at the Javitts center has grown to an almost nauseating size as enormous crowds will flock into the city and do everything they can to keep me from getting my hands on the exclusives I need in my life. It’s always tough and there are always items I miss out on but with proper planning we should all be able to get our hands on some cool exclusives.

With that said, I always want to try and do my part by helping point out some of what I consider the best NYCC exclusives and hopefully show you exactly how and where to pick these beauties up. This year seems to be lacking a little as a few companies who normally have NYCC exclusives are nowhere to be seen but there are still some cool items nonetheless. Let’s take a look at some of the best of what this year has to offer:

FUNKO EXCLUSIVES

This is a pretty big one. Funky items are always sought after at NYCC and if you’re looking for some of the most exclusive from the FUNKO booth itself, there are a few changes this year. basically, here is how it will go:

How do I get in line?

You will need a ticket to get in line for the Funko booth!

Tickets for the Funko booth will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis in Hall 1C at 11:00 AM and 2:30 PM each day. Once you have a ticket, you are eligible to get in line to shop at the Funko booth, which you can find at Booth #722.

In other words, you can’t get in line for the Funko booth without a ticket! This includes NYCC VIP badge-holders!

The queue for our ticket line is up to the discretion of NYCC. It is our understanding that the hall needs to be emptied before we can allow a line to form. However, whether or not lines form before 11 AM is beyond our control and will be determined by NYCC.

Tickets are valid for that day and time only. We will not honor late ticket-holders or tickets from previous days.

How is the booth going to run this year?

We understand it is frustrating to wait in a long line!

In an effort to streamline the process and keep the line moving quickly, we are utilizing an order sheet system. Everyone who receives a ticket for the booth will also receive an order sheet. You will mark each item you want on this sheet. When you reach check-out, a Funko booth worker will take your order sheet and retrieve all the items you have marked that are still available.

Is there a limit?

There will be a strict limit of one of each item per customer.

What if I have other people in my group (children, friends, etc.)?

Each member of your group must have their own ticket, completed order form, and be present at check-out. One person may pay for all the orders, but everyone must be present.

Will vendors be limited?

Yes. Attendees with “Exhibitor” badges will not be able to receive a ticket at 11:00 AM. If you have an “Exhibitor” badge, you may go to Hall 1C at 2:30 PM to try for a ticket.

If I fill out an order sheet, am I guaranteed to get everything I want?

Filling out an order sheet does not guarantee your order. Items may sell out before you reach the front of the line. Your order will be fulfilled based on availability at the time you reach check out.

Will other retailers be sharing any of these items?

Certain pieces will be available at other retailers in limited quantities.

These retailers will make their own announcements regarding what pieces they will have in stock.

How much are the exclusives?

The New BLACK PANTHER Arrives This Spring

MARVEL COMICS’ BLACK PANTHER #1 HELMED BY TA-NEHISI COATES
New York Times Bestselling Author Takes on T’Challa, a.k.a. the Black Panther

New York, NY—September 23rd, 2015— Marvel is excited to announce that next spring, one of the most thought-provoking and perceptive writers today, Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between the World and Me) along with legendary artist Brian Stelfreeze, will helm a new BLACK PANTHER series, adding an exciting, erudite new voice to the All-New, All –Different Marvel lineup.

 The indomitable will of Wakanda — the famed African nation known for its vast wealth, advanced technology and warrior traditions — has long been reflected in the will of its monarchs, the Black Panthers. But now, the current Black Panther, T’Challa, finds that will tested by a superhuman terrorist group called The People that has sparked a violent uprising among the citizens of Wakanda.  T’Challa knows the country must change to survive — the question is, will the Black Panther survive the change?

“Wakanda is really the light of the world, in the Marvel Universe. And yet it’s a system of governance that has not advanced beyond the idea of blood-rule,” says Coates.  “It’s always seemed to me that T’Challa was aware of this discrepancy. Among the monarchs of Marvel –Namor and Doctor Doom for instance– T’Challa has always been distinguished to me by his discomfort on the throne, and with the problems of one-man rule. I am very much looking forward to exploring that tension.”

That tension and conflict is what will fire BLACK PANTHER #1 into a no-holds-barred adventure that will demonstrate why Black Panther is one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Universe.

“Ta-Nehisi writes brilliantly about everything from race to politics to fatherhood to modern culture, but he’s also a longtime Marvel reader. And combining his writing skills with his passion for and understanding of Marvel’s characters, paired with the captivating and engaging artwork of modern master Brian Stelfreeze, has led to a truly amazing story that we can’t wait for the world to read,” says Wil Moss, editor of the new BLACK PANTHER series. “This story will have all the political intrigue of the best episodes of THE WEST WING and HOMELAND, but it’s also going to have the trademark Marvel action and energy that Stan Lee & Jack Kirby (Black Panther’s creators!) built into the foundation of the Marvel Universe. Look for some fun and unexpected Marvel villains to show up in this story, as well as an appearance or two by T’Challa’s new teammates, The Ultimates.”

Join us next year as Marvel continues to change the creative landscape of the comic book industry as Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze make history as the new creative team on Marvel Comics’ BLACK PANTHER.

PATSY WALKER, A.K.A HELLCAT! #1 – This December the Cat is out of the Bag with Marvel’s Latest Female-led Series!

Written by Kate Leth (Adventure Time) and with art by Brittney Williams (Lumberjanes), PATSY WALKER, A.K.A. HELLCAT!  will spotlight this modern-day superhero who refuses to say NO to any adventure even if it does prove to be more than what she can handle.

“I want to continue the thread of her being the kind of girl who calls you up out of the blue and you always say yes, because it’s an adventure,” says Leth.  “She’s a super hero martial-arts wiz that can sense mystical energy! She learned how to fight on the moon, so you KNOW she’s good at what she does and has the history to back it up.”

Beginning her heroic career with the Avengers and then becoming a core member of the Defenders, Hellcat’s new series will be inviting readers into a no-nonsense journey following this kick-ass super hero as she tries to make a name for herself alongside some of the most powerful Marvel heroines around.

“With this series, Kate and Brittney are going to provide a unique spin on the super hero, providing readers with a Patsy Walker who is both supremely relatable and supremely awesome,” says editor Wil Moss. “And look for guest appearances by all of Marvel’s top female heroes, including She-Hulk, Kate Bishop, Captain Marvel and maybe even the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!”

This December, Patsy Walker plans to claw her way to the top no matter what it takes! Be here for this brand new, action-packed series as this feline femme fatale reestablishes herself among Marvel’s mightiest within in the pages of PATSY WALKER, A.K.A. HELLCAT!

Straight from WB and DC Themselves:

Batman Unlimited,  New Animated Content Inspired by Mattel’s New Batman Toy Line, to Debut Spring 2015

All-New Animated Shorts Based on the Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends Toy Line to Premiere Spring 2015

BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 2, 2015 (Virtual Press Office) — Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP), DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Animation today unveiled an unprecedented wave of content inspired by two of the company’s most successful toy lines developed in partnership with Mattel and Fisher-Price. Inspired by Mattel’s new toy line, Batman Unlimited will launch in 2015 with new made-for-video movies and shorts that will extend the play experience for kids. DC Super Friends, inspired by the Fisher-Price Imaginext toy line, will also offer original content as a series of shorts launching in spring of 2015. Bringing dimension to the action figures and playsets available in toy aisles globally, each program will engage millions of young fans around the world like never before.

Batman Unlimited will debut as a made-for-video animated movie entitled Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts that stars Batman alongside key Super Hero allies such as The Flash, Red Robin and Green Arrow, coming face to face with DC Comics Super-Villain, The Penguin, and never-before-seen cyber animals. The sequel is set to release the second half of 2015.  Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts will be available on May 12, 2015 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

“We are excited to continue to forge new ground with our long-time partners Mattel and Fisher-Price to build on the success of these popular toy lines by bringing the play pattern to life through this original content that we will be able to offer across multiple platforms,” said Brad Globe, President, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

Adding to the slate of new Batman Unlimited content, Warner Bros. will release 22 stand-alone, two-minute shorts. Featuring additional story elements, the shorts will be available for fans to enjoy online for free on dedicated channels. Companion apps will also be produced for young fans to extend and develop their experience in an interactive new way.

“We are thrilled to be working with our Warner Bros., Mattel and Fisher-Price colleagues to create new Batman and DC Super Friends kids’ content,” stated DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson. “These new animated projects will offer all new Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman adventures that seamlessly jump from toybox to screen.”

Building upon Mattel’s hugely successful Batman toy line, the new Batman Unlimited content will bring a new wave of Mattel toys expanded under the banner of Batman Unlimited, including action figures with Animal Ally accessories, a new Batmobile, and the all-new CybeRex robot dinosaur, all featured in the Batman Unlimited content. Additionally, DC Comics master costume partner, Rubie’s Costumes, has signed on to support the new content with a line of inspired-by dress-up and costumes; and toymaker Thinkway will introduce new Batman Unlimited-themed role-play accessories.  Batman Unlimited will also have a major QSR partner in 2015, with other key categories, such as apparel, to be announced at a later time.

“Our longstanding collaboration with WBCP has given Mattel the opportunity to engage fans of all ages with the very best in DC Comics Super Hero play,” said Doug Wadleigh, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Mattel Toy Box. “It is a true compliment that our evergreen DC Comics toy lines have inspired a whole new universe of storytelling that will dramatically expand kids’ imaginative play with their favorite Super Heroes.”

Also debuting in spring 2015, Warner Bros. Animation will release a slate of DC Super Friends animated shorts featuring designs inspired by the popular Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends toy line. The 15 three-minute shorts will extend the characters’ storylines for fans to enjoy online for free on dedicated channels. Accompanying the shorts will be the release of companion apps that offer young DC Comics fans the chance to advance the storyline and further engage with their favorite characters.

DC Super Friends content will build upon the existing world of Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends toys with an expansion of the toy line following the shorts. Exciting additions to the line include all-new playset environments seen in the shorts such as The Joker Laff Factory, as well as a new design of the fan-favorite Batcave, all of which will feature Imaginext’s interactive Power Pad, enabling kids to activate key features in the toy. Among other key categories to come, Publishing partners will also partake in the expanded universe of DC Super Friends storytelling with new titles.

My Iron Man 3 Thoughts

iron_man_3 screencap

So now that the films been out for a solid 2 weeks I figure its safe to discuss without spoiling the fun. Besides barely updating here, I also write reviews for AICN Comics and we recently had to share our thoughts on the newest adventures of Tony Stark. without further rambling here’s what I had to say:

So after basking in the event that was Iron Man 3: the IMAX 3D, Molest My Eyes and Ears with Sensory Overload Experience, I came out with several thoughts. First, I enjoyed this movie. It was much better than what we received in Iron Man 2 and for a third entry in a series I thought it did a great job keeping Iron Man as one of the top heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in a post-Avengers world. Second, (before any of you think it) yes, of course this movie was not better or anywhere near as close to an experience as The Avengers was. That’s a ridiculous thought to have, so just stop it. Avengers was a buildup that took years to achieve and I will credit Marvel because any film being the first that followed Avengers as next in the MCU line was going to have a lot of expectations to live up to and I think Iron Man 3 for the most part achieved that.

What did I not like? That’s a tough one. I don’t want to jump on the Mandarin complaint bandwagon but it was the part of the film that lost me the most. Honestly, it wasn’t even the “twist” that really bothered me. The idea of a manufactured threat from within was actually something I liked, what I didn’t like was that one moment of cheesy comic book movie cliché we got, as the line “I am The Mandarin!” was dropped during the films climax. It just felt like a throwaway line to connect the dots in case you couldn’t figure it out. It actually reminded me of Snape randomly yelling “I am the Half-blood Prince” at the end of Harry Potter 6, but that’s a whole ‘nother nerd argument I’ll have to have another day. I would have much preferred the mystery being left to Mandarin and instead I think the character devolved to a typical movie villain with super powers as the film came to a close. Villain issues aside, I still had a great time with the movie and although I’d have liked a little more, I think it’s safe to say phase 2 of the MCU is off to a good start.

Like what I had to say? Think I’m a moron who should never read or watch a movie again? Let me know in the comics below and as always,

I’ll see you when I see you folks
