Finder: Voice continues to be one of the most talked about books of 2011, and word of its story and artwork has spread far and wide. So far, in fact, that Carla Speed McNeil has been awarded the prestigious Los Angeles Times Book Prize in the Graphic Novel category for Finder: Voice!

Praise for Carla Speed McNeil’s Finder:

“I love Carla Speed McNeil’s Finder, and I imagine the reason I love it is the same reason it doesn’t get more attention in the comics press: it’s simultaneously straightforward and labyrinthine, genre-based and uncategorizable . . . For me, and for other readers who have gotten pulled into McNeil’s weird and woolly far-future world, Finder is one of those comics.”—The Comics Journal

“It’s been entirely too long since we were able to experience Carla Speed McNeil’s unique brand of sociological science fiction with its emphasis on character, class and culture. Once again McNeil immerses you in her meticulously detailed world and you’re immediately caught up in a beautifully drawn and deftly written story.”—ICv2“You’ll keep turning the pages in Voice to put the pieces of the puzzle together and to see what Grosvenor does next. It is an intricate tale, and Carla Speed McNeil is a master storyteller—with her words and art.”—ScienceFiction.com

“McNeil conveys more emotion and depth through the slick line of a raised eyebrow than most can with an entire book, played out in a world that is unquestionably familiar and unshakably alien.”—Bleeding Cool

“McNeil excels at tying her many character and story elements together and anchoring them in the same increasingly familiar universe, making her fictional world, its inhabitants and their issues and experiences all the more real to the invested, gratified reader.”—No Flying No Tights

BREAKING: 'HEROES REBORN' POSTERS INTRODUCE THREE NEW CHARACTERS

When "Heroes Reborn" premieres this fall, viewers can expect to see a number of familiar faces from the original run of the NBC series, including Noah "HRG" Bennet, Matt Parkman, Mohinder Suresh, Hiro Nakamura and more. However, the 13-episode miniseries mainly focuses on all-new characters -- three of whom are highlighted in new character posters which debuted on CBR!

The miniseries returns to the original premise of the show: everyday people discovering they now have extraordinary powers. The series takes place a year after the terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, that forced superpowered individuals to go into hiding or go on the run, such as Judith Shekoni's Joanne.

Seen in the new posters are Erica (Rya Kihlstedt), the head of a high successful tech conglomerate; Emily (Gatlin Green), the girl of previously introduced character Tommy's dreams; and Quentin (Rya Kihlstedt), a conspiracy theorist on the hunt for Noah Bennet in order to expose the truth of the Odessa tragedy.
METALLO WAS ORIGINALLY PLANNED AS VILLAIN IN MAN OF STEEL SEQUEL

Before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was even dreamt up at Warner Bros., Zack Snyder was trying to figure who the villain would be in the Man of Steel sequel.

"I remember talking about 'What's the next villain?'" Snyder recalled to Entertainment Weekly. "'We can't do another alien invasion.' Brianiac was definitely down the road. Metallo, I think, was going to be the main bad guy of this movie."

Metallo (also known as John Corben) is a nearly-invulnerable cyborg that uses Kryptonite as a power source.

The direction of the Man of Steel sequel changed drastically when Snyder made a suggestion at a meeting with screenwriter screenwriter David S. Goyer and executive producer Christopher Nolan (See, he is involved). "I said, 'What about at the end of the movie we do a scene where there's a crate full of Kryptonite delivered to Wayne Manor,'" Snyder remembered. "Everyone was like...'Okaay.' Once you say it out loud it's a problem because you can't unsay it."

That's the moment Batman v Superman was born. Luckily for Snyder, Henry Cavill doesn't mind sharing the superhero spotlight. "As far as the individual character is concerned, this is not a Superman sequel," Cavill explained. "It's more of an introduction to Batman, an opening to Justice League, and an expansion of the world that was created in Man of Steel."
JUSTICE LEAGUE MOVIE SCRIPT IS ALREADY COMPLETE

Justice League: Part One isn’t scheduled to hit movie theaters until November 17, 2017. However, according to a new report in the Comic-Con print edition of Entertainment Weekly, Warner Bros. already has a complete script for the film.

Argo screenwriter Chris Terrio, who was brought in to rewrite the Batman V. Supermanscript, has reportedly already finished the script for Justice League. According to EW, Terrio and director Zack Snyder locked themselves in a room with a large supply of Diet Coke to help them stay alert as they plotted the films.

“Chris would talk and I would draw it and it was basically this weird mural of the movies with no words,” said Snyder. Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns is noted as one of the influences on their plot.

Batman V. Superman is scheduled to be released on March 25, 2016.

Concept art for The CW's upcoming comic book television show Legends of Tomorrowhas been unveiled in Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con issue.

Like all most newly-former superhero teams, the Legends of Tomorrow will have to learn how to work together effectively. That's not an easy task when the group is made up of kindhearted heroes, villains-turned-reluctant-heroes and a revived assassin.

"They're screwups," showrunner Phil Klemmer told Entertainment Weekly. "It's going to be total madness."

NEW DEADPOOL IMAGE FEATURES NEGASONIC TEENAGE WARHEAD

!DEADPOOL!!!! with Logo

You know San Diego Comic Con is right around the corner when loads of new movie stills are released. Yesterday, fans got some new glimpses at Deadpool courtesy of EW, but today - we get our first official look of his partner in crime, Negasonic Teenage Warhead.

Featured in front of a beat up old taxi, Warhead (played by Brianna Hildebrand)looks like she’s ready to get into all kinds of mischief with star Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool. If you’re looking at this image and scratching your head saying “Who is Negasonic Teenage Warhead,” don’t worry, you’re not alone. When the character was first announced that she would be participating in the movie, it sent many back into their longboxes (and Wikipedia) to find out more.

The character was introduced in 2001 by the critically acclaimed creative team of Grant Morrison and Frank Quietly in their run of New X-Men. Except, she didn’t last very long, as most characters in Deadpool’s life meet their maker fairly quickly.

We know this movie is going to be a “Hard R” film, so there is no telling what we can expect from this movie except loads of violence and debauchery. We cannot wait.

Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.

JIM BUTCHER AND MARK POWERS SHARE THOUGHTS ON JIM BUTCHER'S THE DRESDEN FILES: DOWN TOWN, THE ORIGINAL, IN-CONTINUITY HARDCOVER GRAPHIC NOVEL SLATED FOR RELEASE IN SEPTEMBER

Dynamite Entertainment is pleased to announce the upcoming September 2015 release of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files: Down Town hardcover graphic novel, collecting the all-original Dresden Files storyline only ever previously released in a six-issue comic book format. Conceived of by Jim Butcher, co-written by Butcher and Mark Powers (G.I. Joe, Drafted), and illustrated by Carlos Gomez (Deadpool, Pathfinder), the new volume follows upon the success of New York Times bestselling graphic novels The Dresden Files: Ghoul Goblin and The Dresden Files: War Cry. The upcoming release in the official, in-continuity Dresden Files graphic novel series tells the story of titular wizard Harry Dresden's mystical confrontation with Chicago mobsters.

"This was a fun project, because we got to play with a Dresden that was much closer to the character as he exists in the most recent books," says Jim Butcher, acclaimed creator of theDresden Files series and plotter for the Down Town storyline. "We got to see both Mouse and Molly in action, to show Marcone demonstrating why he's the Baron of Chicago, and to pit Dresden against an archetypical foe of the Wardens of the White Council, a power-maddened warlock. We get to go on an adventure in Undertown, the Stygian labyrinth beneath Chicago, and in general have all the monsters, adventure, and uneasy alliances that are what the readers of The Dresden Files have come to expect from the stories."

Mark Powers, who worked with Butcher's original script to tailor it for the comic book medium, says, "Working with Jim, Carlos, Nick and the entire Dynamite crew on Down Town was an absolute blast. When I found out Carlos would be back, after the stellar job he did illustrating War Cry, I could not have been more excited - and if anything, he upped his game for Down Town. It's an honor and privilege to be associated with Jim and the world he's created, which is so rich with interesting characters and locales that we could probably do a hundred series without exhausting all the possibilities." In Down Town, Chicago wizard-for-hire Harry Dresden and his new apprentice, Molly Carpenter, intend to end the havoc caused by a mad sorcerer - one whose ambitions would have the Windy City streets carved out as his own private kingdom. But when the magical upstart enters into an alliance with the notorious mob boss "Gentleman Johnnie" Marcone, the fast-and-loose Dresden and his young charge must do everything in their power to survive unscathed. With bonus features including Jim Butcher's original story outline, sketchbook artwork from Carlos Gomez, and a cover gallery with roughs from Stjepan Sejic, Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files: Down Town hardcover graphic novel will be available in a Regular Edition and a special Signed Limited Edition. "I loved the way the story came out, and I look forward to creating more graphic novels with Dynamite!" says Butcher

Jim Butcher is a New York Times bestselling author, whose Dresden Files novel series has sold millions of copies and produced related graphic novels, roleplaying games, and a 2007 Sci-Fi Channel television series. In addition to his Dresden Files series, Butcher has authored the traditional fantasy Codex Alera and steampunk Cinder Spires series.

Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files: Down Town will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' July Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, corresponding to items shipping in September 2015. Comic book and Dresden Filesfans are encouraged to reserve copies of The Dresden Files: Down Town with their local comic book retailers, bookstores, or online retailers.

The line between comics and professional wrestling is about to get even blurrier. During the keynote address at this year's Image Expoin San Francisco, frequent Image writer Joe Keatinge took to the stage to announce a new ongoing series -- "Ringside."

The series will focus on what happens when the attention of screaming crowds and wrestling announces is focused elsewhere, as indicated by "Ringside's" tagline: "The real violence is outside the ring." The comic boasts a logo designed by Brandon Graham and will feature art from newcomer Nick Barber, who Keatinge found online.

"This is a book about the relationships that form throughout this industry," said Keatinge atImage Expo. The writer said that his favorite wrestler, Mick Foley, inspired him to take a deeper look at professional wrestling and learn more about what goes on behind the scenes. He also equated defunct cult-favorite organization ECW to Image Comics.

JOHNSTON, CHANKHAMMA SET SIGHTS ON "CODENAME BABOUSHKA" AT IMAGE EXPO

Writer Antony Johnston and co-creator/artist Shari Chankhamma will soon flip the spy genre upside-down with "Codename Baboushka," an all-out action series that sees the writer cutting loose like never before.

From the stage at Image Expo, Johnston gave the logline for his new espionage-action series. "What if the sexy, Russian femme fatale was actually the hero?"

The series will star a former member of the Russian mafia that has relocated to New York City, where she's laying low. Her quiet life is then interrupted when she's blackmailed into taking on classified black-ops missions."

'Baboushka' is a little bit of a labor of love for me," said Johnston, who revealed that he's been working on this series in some form or fashion for years. "It's also a chance for me to let my hair down. This book has brains and plenty of explosions. And guns. And high kicks. And necks getting snapped. You get the idea."

The first arc is titled "The Conclave of Death," and will feature covers from artists including Tula Lotay, Annie Wu, Leila del Duca and Kate Leth.



BREAKING: LOTAY TALKS REUNITING WITH ELLIS ON

Fans of "Supreme: Blue Rose" likely rejoiced when a new Image Comics collaboration between the incomparable Warren Ellis and artist Tula Lotay was announced earlier today at Image Expo.

This time around, they're setting their sites on a genre bending horror series titled "Heartless."

Image described the book as follows:

"A musician returns to northern England, where her family owned a little cottage in the middle of a forest. She wrote her first album there, and she's "going back to the countryside," as musicians used to, to write her next one. But the forest doesn't want her there. She's returning to face her demons -- one in particular -- and put herself back together, but the forest remembers what she did, and the devil wants his due."

In other words, exactly the kind of material both creators were born to produce.

"I wrote this for Tula," Ellis told CBR. "It's full of all the stuff we love: the spooky stories, the landscape, the folklore, and the things that haunt us."
