SDCC 2012: New Judge Dredd comic from IDW

So many big news stories came out of SDCC 2012 that the internet has blown up over the last few days. Huge announcements from all the big publishers came thick and fast and it looks like the coming 12 months are going to be really exciting for comics fans.

One story that caught my attention but perhaps didn’t receive the same amount of fanfare as announcements from DC, Marvel or Image was the news that IDW Publishing are planning a new series starring one of the UK’s best known and most popular characters Judge Dredd. It will be written by Birds of Prey writer Duane Swierczynski with art by Nelson Daniel. I’m not familiar with Daniel, but a quick look on his website reveals a talented illustrator with a nice clean style which I think will suit Dredd. Personally I like Swierczynski’s writing though I know he’s not to everyone’s taste. There’s also going to be back up pieces in each issue and covers by the likes of Whilce Portacio and Carlos Ezquerra!

Here’s the preview image:

Preview art from IDW’s Judge Dredd

IDW are probably best known for comic book versions of licensed properties such as Star Trek, Doctor Who and Transformers. I haven’t read any of these titles but I have read 30 Days of Night which is brilliant, and Locke and Key by Joe Hill has always been on my radar. They seem to have a good philosophy towards comics publishing, having a lot of talented writers and great independent titles, and I think they’ll make a Judge Dredd comic work outside the 2000AD world, and more importantly in the US where Dredd has traditionally struggled to connect with readers.

I for one will definitely be checking it out.

Geek Talk

Last week was pretty crazy with work and also finally launching Geeks Unleashed. Geeks Unleashed is something I have been wanting to launch as far back as March this year but one thing lead to another and Geeks Unleashed was put on the back burner. Then last week we finally launched this site and our twitter too. The idea behind Geeks Unleashed is that it is a collaborative blog featuring news on reviews on comics, television, movies etc. There are already several writers on board with some already posting and others in the wings.

Last week I also got a chance to catch up on a couple of television shows and some comics, these were my highlights:

Being Human US

I’ve been a bit slow with watching the current season, not because I haven’t enjoyed it. The show just got away from me. I had a bit of a catch up session over the weekend.

I struggled to get into the British version of the show, which even disappoints myself being British but I found the American one far easier to get into and you can see the quality in this show. I love the dark tones of the show, the drama and characterisation of the three main character and even the recurring characters that pop up. Two recurring characters that I am particularly drawn to are Nora and Julia both love interests of the werewolf – Josh. The penultimate episode of season 2 which finally saw Josh come to the realisation that he had to be honest with Julia his former fiancé and at the moment he chose to finally be honest chaos ensured which led to Julia being hit by car. Josh had to leave her as he was becoming a werewolf – just your normal Friday. But when he returned the scene he saw Julia sitting there and went to hold her hand but she stopped him and he sat next to her they were finally honest with each other. It was an amazing scene in which Josh promises to make things work when Julia tells him it’s too late and the camera pans across the road to Julia’s dead body being lifted into the back of an ambulance and we realise that Julia is in fact a ghost. It was heart breaking scene especially as I as a viewer and begun to root for them as a couple of Nora. Then the last episode was pretty action packed especially the last ten minutes – Josh, Sally and Aidan are all on their own resolving their own story lines for the season leaving us hanging for each character. The ending definitely left wanting more. The last few seconds shows their empty house and then flicks to the radio and we hear Sally’s voice. Great ending to this season.

The Massive #1

Published by Dark Horse

Two things made me pick up this comic – the cover and the writer – Brian Wood. I am a big fan of Brian Wood’s work having read the DMZ.

Several great things about this comic stood out for outside of the story – there were no adverts through the story which was great as I find they can take you out of the story. Also once the story finished we had a captains log over two pages and some other written documents at the back of the book.

The inside cover starts with an introduction of the to the story which I can tell by the end of the issue is going to be a big story, this comes across as really well thought out and that in one issue we have barely scratched the service. The story follows Captain Callum Israel and his crew of the Kapital who are looking for their sister ship The Massive. The world has effectively come to an end after a year of major disasters and the planet has changed as a result. The comic is a mixture of present and past tense, the flashbacks fill the reader in enough to show the overall picture of this world and the crew. The art work by Kristian Donaldson is incredibly detailed and very realistic.

So if you are interested in one of those post-everything type stories which will probably be told over around 60  issues which contain a mixture of drama, intrigue and adventure then this is for you.

Thanks for stopping by Geeks Unleashed, enjoy the rest of your week.

Walking Dead San Diego Comic Con 2012 Preview

This is the trailer that was shown this weekend at the San Diego Comic Con for the up and coming season of Walking Dead which returns to AMC on the 14th October and is on FX UK sometime this Autumn.

I know The Walking Dead isn’t everyone’s cup tea and could be seen as more of a boys television show due to the zombies but for the drama is so intense. I love every moment of The Walking Dead and I hope one day to read the comic book. Sadly this is one comic I have yet to read.

Let me know your thoughts on the trailer below.

Y The Last Man and Ultimate Spiderman – Fan Made Movies

In the last week I have come across some amazing fan-made videos, based of popular comic books. This summer has been action packed with Avengers, Amazing Spiderman and Dark Knight Rises but these two have come as a very pleasant surprise.

Ultimate Spiderman directed by Wes Armstrong, starring Devin White as Miles Morales is more of a promotional piece which introduces the character and his powers. For those of you who don’t know Miles Morales – Marvel Comics has several different comic book lines which they publish outside of their main comic book titles which have been established going back 1939 (Marvel Comics #1 was published in 1939). In 2000 Marvel launched their Ultimate Comics line which has seen several major shake ups in the last 12 years including the death of Peter Parker and the introduction of Miles Morales who has been an extremely popular character. I have enjoyed the comic and this fan made video really paid well to the series. Really looking forward to seeing more.

Y: The Last Man was scripted and directed by Christian Cardona, starring Travis Quentin Young as Yorick Brown. Y-The Last Man is the tale of the last man and last male monkey on Earth, this fan made movie is based of the comic of the same name written by Brian K. Vaughan. The comic series last 60 issues and was published under DC Comics Vertigo arm. This was one of my favourite comic book series when it was out. Since Y: The Last Man finished I have heard many rumours of movies and television series, although I have always thought that it would make a perfect television series and would suit HBO. I take my hat off the people behind this 20 minute fan-made movie, although it’s not perfect it is as close to bloody brilliant as someone could get without a Hollywood budget. Spoiler moment – when you see the plane hit the water in the background I actually taken back. This was an amazing and really well made. 

2 Minute Dexter Season 7 Preview

This is the first two minutes of Dexter Season 7, which was shown live to fans at the San Diego Comic Convention on the 12th July which features Jennifer Carpenter as Debra Morgan confronting Dexter played by Michael C Hall, as he stands over the body of Travis Marshall, who was played by Colin Hanks.

Dexter returns for its seventh season on Sunday, September 30 at 9/8c on Showtime  and will air on FX in the UK. The seventh season is part of a two-part / two season finale, with season 8 being the final season.

While watching this two-minute preview I completely lost track and was drawn into the show, Dexter is one of my favourite shows. I am very much looking forward to Dexter returning to our screens, I am looking forward to seeing how the revaluation changes things between Debra and Dexter and I can’t wait to see if Dexter stops Debra from making that call.

Sky 1’s Sinbad Episode 1 Review

Ever since I saw this advertised I have been eagerly awaiting episode one. Every one knows the real story of Sinbad. However what has Sky 1 done with this tale?

Sky’s Synopsis

On the run from his home town of Basra and under a curse for a killing that led to the death of his much-loved brother, the streetwise Sinbad finds himself cast out to sea. Surviving a violent and magical storm, both Sinbad and his intriguing fellow ship-mates are forced to band together to face their inner demons, hopes, loves and fears. Our flawed hero embarks on an epic and emotional quest to rid himself of the curse and embrace his destiny. When mystical meets muscle anything can happen.

So how is their portrayal different? Sky said

“Our Sinbad is 21, reckless, utterly charming and cursed. Mysticism, magic, monsters and high octane action adventure, this Sinbad is always exciting and sometimes challenging. This unique series will have the ambition of Lost, the pace of 24, and take the viewer to visually stunning locations on both sea and land. Sky’s Sinbad will be a multi-layered series for today’s prime time audience.”

There are some great actors in it and i was impressed. The outfits were amazingly authentic as well as the location.

However something my mother said made me giggle. I said If this in Basra why are they (Sinbad and Jamil) broad Cockney’s? She said because he (Jamil) is from Eastenders! LOL So negative number one. Sinbad and Jamil’s accent were way too natural.

Negative two, the beginning didn’t draw me in which is a must have for me as I have the attention span of a fish. It took a good 15 minutes for me to become interested. Then again I am hard to please!

So far they are the only negatives. Oh apart from Jamil being killed within the first 30 minutes, I like Devon Anderson and I hoped they may have stretched it out a bit longer. By the way – Thats not a spoiler! Its in the synopsis!

I will continue watching and update on my views.

Did you tune in? What did you think?

Marvel Cancels Nine Major Titles!

The first issue of Uncanny Avengers will be released in October, but that’s not the only major change at Marvel this Halloween. Nine titles are set to be cancelled, while Avengers #31 and #32 are listed as being the the beginning of Brian Michael Bendis’ “final explosive arc” on the series. The same applied for both New Avengers #31 and #32. Meanwhile, Avengers Assemble #8 is listed as being the last for Bendis and artist Mark Bagley and Journey Into Mystery #645 is sadly Kieron Gillen’s last issue as he “bids farewell” to the book. This October, the following titles will be coming to an end.

  1. -Captain America #19
  2. -Fantastic Four #611
  3. -FF #23
  4. -Incredible Hulk #15
  5. -Invincible Iron Man #527
  6. -New Mutants #50
  7. -The Mighty Thor #22
  8. -Uncanny X-Men #20
  9. -X-Men Legacy #275

This is perhaps out first indication that these titles will all be relaunched with new #1 issues between November and February. With rumours that we will see Rick Remender and John Romita Jr. on Captain America and Kieron Gillen and Greg Land on Iron Man, big changes are afoot over at Marvel. Unfortunately for cash-strapped comic book fans, many of the above titles will be double shipping in October, making it a VERY expensive month.
