BioWare, a label of Electronic Arts Inc., and Dark Horse Comics today announced Dragon Age™: Those Who Speak, a three-issue comic miniseries based on the award-winning Dragon Age™ fiction.

Written by David Gaider, lead writer of the Dragon Age series, and Alexander Freed, senior writer for Star Wars™: The Old Republic™, Those Who Speak expands on the story of King Alistair, as he travels to an empire of evil mages to uncover the fate of his lost father. Accompanied by the pirate captain Isabela and the underworld merchant Varric, King Alistair will stop at nothing to learn the truth, even if it means battling an army of cultists single-handedly. The first issue of Dragon Age: Those Who Speak will be available on comic book stands on August 22.

Additionally, Dragon Age: The Silent Grove will be available in a hardcover edition on July 25. Previously available only in the Dark Horse Digital store, Dragon Age: The Silent Grove is the perfect companion to the Dragon Age universe.

DF REVIEW: BATMAN/SUPERMAN #13
08/31/14 @ 12:29 pm EST

By BYRON BREWER

Certain comics – once, under the pen of Roy Thomas, The Incredible Hulk, and certainly under Stan Lee, Spider-Man – have been compared to daytime dramas, AKA the soaps.

Now, in Batman/Superman #13, one of the most dreaded story devices of soap writers attacks Greg Pak and Jae Lee’s book: amnesia, both for the Man of Tomorrow and the Dark Knight.

The number 13 is often seen as unlucky, but Pak and Lee take this device and sail merrily into one of the most interesting and certainly funny (yes, funny) episodes of the World’s Finest Heroes as a new arc begins!

Pak pairs the amnesiac Supes with Catwoman and Lois is also along for the ride. The writer walks the line as he attempts to (and successfully so) infuse humor into Bats, and the results are exciting, humorous and quite entertaining.

Less so is the throw-over to the villainous Kaiyo (from the previous arc) who is plotting with Lord Satanus. While this isn't the issue's great strength, there's plenty here to impress.

Top of the list: Jae Lee’s art, which is especially and always powerful during character-driven moments, emotional outbursts or confusions, and flowing panels of action. Most can be found in B/S #13 in satisfactory amounts.

Pak has an ability to take nothing and make something very worthwhile from it. And let’s face it: Lee’s art don’t hurt! Great issue.

Sitting on a compact footprint, the 120-foot-tall 4-D wing coaster is top feature an elevator-like lift hill, forward and reverse inversions and beyond-vertical freefall drops.

More than 60,000 attendees are expected at Dragon Con in Atlanta, GA, this year, its 27th incarnation.

Stars are shining in the South, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, including: Sir Patrick Stewart — “Star Trek: The Next Generation” (“Captain Jean-Luc Picard”), the “X-Men” series (“Charles Xavier”); Karl Urban — recent “Star Trek” movies (“Dr. Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy”), “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy (“Eomer”); Manu Bennett — “The Hobbit” trilogy (“Azog the Defiler”), TV’s “Arrow” (“Slade Wilson”); Katie Cassidy — “Arrow” (“Laurel Lance”); Evanna Lynch — “Harry Potter” franchise (“Luna Lovegood”); Ralph Macchio — “The Outsiders” (“Johnny Cade”), “The Karate Kid” (“Daniel LaRusso”); Cary Elwes — “The Princess Bride,” (“Westley”), “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” (“Robin Hood”); Walter Koenig — “Star Trek” original series (“Pavel Chekov”); Lou Ferrigno — TV’s “The Incredible Hulk;” John Ratzenberger — “Cheers” (“Cliff Clavin”), voice in Pixar movies (“Hamm the Piggy Bank” in the “Toy Story” series, “Mack the Truck” in the “Cars” series); James Gunn — writer/director of “Guardians of the Galaxy;” Terry Gilliam — screenwriter/director (“The Fisher King,” “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”) and Monty Python troupe member.

DYNAMIC FORCES EXPLORES DOINGS AT FAN EXPO CANADA

Despite the fact that Fan Expo Canada is the third biggest convention in North America, neither DC nor Marvel has a presence on the showroom floor, observed Bleeding Cool.

Freeing up artists for Artist’s Alley, or just too tough to get all those displays across the border?

Nevertheless, things are booming in the Great White North with the first DC panel discussing everything Batman (including a listing of 75th anniversary events thus far and future). The legendary Bernie Wrightson returned to Canada for the first time in more than 20 years to talk to his many admirers at Fan Expo, taking questions regarding his work on Swamp Thing and the state of the comic industry.

Both former 1960s Batman performer Adam West and Stan "The Man" Lee spoke to the fans, with Lee refusing to choose among all the pop culture surrounding him. “I like everything,” he insisted to the packed house of fans who asked him about his favorite this and his favorite that. That may be true, but The Huffington Post reports that Lee was very proud of the clever answer he spouts when people ask about his favorite superpower. He said it was luck!

Tribute reports, meanwhile, that cosplayers from every genre are walking the floor and there is nothing as enjoyable as watching one cosplayer take a photo with or of another cosplayer, a true appreciation of the hard work and detail that goes into each outfit.

With one slash of the ribbon by Freddie Krueger's razor claw, iconic horror actor Robert Englund opened Fan Expo Canada this year, as "Nightmare On Elm Street" survivor girl Heather Lagenkamp screamed in the background.

Fan Expo Canada runs through Aug. 31 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

VIN DIESEL TEASES HANNIBAL THE CONQUEROR AS HIS NEXT BIG FRANCHISE

With Guardians of the Galaxy now the #1 film of 2014 at the U.S. box office, Vin Diesel seems ready to launch his next big franchise. While Vin Diesel might be best known for the Fast & Furious movies, he’s been leveraging his success with that franchise to get another project off the ground.

On Friday, Vin Diesel posted a video of himself enjoying a very scenic ride. However, the camera kept panning down to a poster for Hannibal the Conqueror. Hannibal the Conqueror is about a Carthaginian general who led an army, complete with war elephants, across the Alps to attack Rome in the 3rd Century BC.

Could THIS be Vin Diesel's next BIG THING? We'll see.
COMIC BOOK COLLECTION STOLEN

A man called Dayton (Ohio) police to report that his $140,000 comic book collection was stolen from his apartment, WHIO reports.

The East Fourth Street resident was told to leave his apartment while his ex-girlfriend moved out after they broke up yesterday, according to a police report.

When he returned, he reportedly got into a physical altercation with her family, and then found his box of comic books, including an X-Men #1, missing, the report states.
PATRICK WARBURTON SET TO RETURN IN THE TICK

The Tick is back to save the day. No lie! At least according to People.com.

Broad-shouldered Patrick Warburton only sported his blue antennae for one season the first go-around, but the critically-acclaimed superhero parody is now being revived on Amazon, People.com reported.

The cult-classic series is based on a comic book by Ben Edlund and was first brought to television as an animated series that enjoyed three seasons of success in the mid 1990s. In early 2012, Fox canceled Warburton's live-action version (which also starred a pre-Lost Nestor Carbonnell) after just nine episodes.

Mayhap the Tick will fair better in these pop culture-friendly times?

Less than a year after unveiling seven collector coins celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Man of Steel, CBR's Robot 6 reports that at Fan Expo in Toronto the Royal Canadian mint introduced four more, featuring iconic Superman comic book covers.

The superhero’s milestone anniversary and Toronto roots were also celebrated last year with a set of stamps from Canada Posts. Although Superman was created in 1933 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster when they were teenagers living in Cleveland, Shuster was actually born in Toronto, and lived there until age 9 or 10. He worked as a newspaper boy for the Toronto Daily Star, whose building served as a model for the Daily Planet (originally called the Daily Star).

Although updates stopped at the end of the series' third book, Levine has restarted the online serialization as the series heads to its fifth book conclusion.

The Dark Horse collection contains the full five books as well as some new, extra material, CBR said.
