RON MARZ TALKS JOHN CARTER AND THE CHARACTER'S CHALLENGES11/27/15 @ 7:15 pm EST
Vampirella gains a new writer this July with Brandon Jerwa! In Brandon's first issue, #21, needs something else here as after here the "after" should start the new sentence. After the startling events of last issue, Vampirella's ready to put everything on the line in an attempt to save one soul and destroy another. Heroes and villains alike are playing toward their own endgame, and the cards are turning with a deadly quickness. We're not kidding when we say that BIG changes are coming, and it all starts here with Part 1 of INQUISITION! Be sure to pick up Vampirella at this great jumping-on point with issue #21!
"I've been a fan of Eric Trautmann's Vampirella since the first issue, and given our ongoing collaboration, this might be one of the easiest handoffs in the history of comics," says writer Brandon Jerwa. "Will my Vampirella book be different? Absolutely. Will I be undoing what has come before? No way. Dynamite has a great franchise here, and I'm going to do my best to turn the amps up to eleven!"
"Eric's told all the stories that he wanted to tell and it's been a great ride. He helped us re-introduce Vampirella and we have been very happy with his stories and we're sorry to see him go," adds Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "But Brandon Jerwa has big plans for the series, and it's incredible! I don't want to give too much away but it's a great new direction and fans will be happy."
Brandon Jerwa's comic book career began in 2003, when he submitted a script to Devil's Due Publishing that was accepted, and was eventually published in G.I. Joe: Frontline #11-14. Soon afterwards, he became the main writer on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and also wrote several G.I. Joe miniseries. On May 18, 2006, Brandon was featured on episode #24 of the Game Show Network's I've Got a Secret; his secret being that in honor of his work on the G.I. Joe comics, Hasbro used his face as the basis for the G.I. Joe action figure Dragonsky. In 2006 and 2007, Jerwa began writing for Dynamite Entertainment, working on the series Highlander, co-writing the first four issues with Michael Avon Oeming before moving on to a prolific run on Battlestar Galactica. Jerwa and Eric Trautmann collaborated on a project called Wide Awake, which appeared first as a short story in Popgun Vol. 2, then as a Free Comic Book Day special, and then later as a free webcomic. In 2009, the duo pitched an idea for a graphic novel to DC's imprint Vertigo, which was accepted, and soon after Jerwa was contacted about working with DC directly. Jerwa's first work for DC Comics was in September 2009 as the writer of the Inferno co-feature in The Shield, a monthly series that introduced re-imagined versions of the Red Circle Comics superhero characters into the DC Universe.
Brandon Jerwa currently writes Pantha in addition to Vampirella for Dynamite Entertainment!

AGENT CARTERíS JUST GETTING STARTED IN NEW PROMO11/27/15 @ 7:02 pm EST
Mark Waid, writer of Justice Inc.: The Avenger #6, talks with writer Ron Marz about John Carter: Warlord of Mars #13, both on sale now.MARK WAID: What appeals to you about John Carter?RON MARZ:
I think what grabbed me when I first read the novels as a kid was the sense of wonder and discovery.Burroughs had an unparalleled imagination, so everything was fantastic in the true sense of the word. That, coupled with breakneck pacing, is impossible to resist when you're 11 years old. It's stayed with me ever since. And, when you get right down to it, John's got a pretty hot girlfriend.MW: What motivates him? What is his greatest challenge?RM:
The short answer is he's motivated by love of his princess,Dejah Thoris. He does what he does for her, always for her. But I think the larger answer is that he's motivated by honor, by doing the right thing. Compared to a lot of contemporary heroes, John Carter is a throwback. He does the right thing because it's the right thing, not because he's driven by guilt or angst, or because there's something to be gained. John's greatest challenge is a little tougher, because he's a virtual superman on Mars. That's why I gave him an opposite number in my first arc on the series, a Union cavalry officer who is John's equal on Mars.MW: How far afield from the original Burroughs material do you wander? Do you want to go farther?RM:
My goal is to stay true to the spirit of the canon, but not be constrained by it. I don't want to do a series that only appeals to hardcore Burroughs fans, I want the material to be inviting to a wide audience. I'd love to go farther, because I think that's the best way to honor the original material -- to engage in creation rather than just imitation. So much of what Burroughs did was about unleashing wild imagination. Anyone who follows in his footsteps needs to do the same.MW: Man, how underrated was that movie?RM:
Don't get me started. I love Andrew Stanton's movie, not just because it's John Carter, but because it's a damn good movie. It's kind of criminal how botched the marketing was, and then how the film's fate was decided even before it opened. It was doomed before opening day thanks to a combination of studio ineptitude and the media looking to stick a shiv in it because it had the temerity to have a large budget. The failure at the box office breaks my heart, but my heartache is soothed by how great the movie is. I re-watch it often, and I think over time its reputation will be burnished.MW: For those readers still on the fence, fill in the blank: If you like ____________, you should read John Carter.RM:
"Star Wars" is the obvious one, right? "Star Wars" isn't really science fiction, it is a lot closer to heroic fantasy, or more to the point, planetary romance. George Lucas borrowed a lot more from Edgar Rice Burroughs than he ever did from Heinlein or Asimov. I remember when the John Carter movie came out, a lot of people and even some critics complained about the arena battle with the white apes being ripped off from Episode 2.Well, where to do you think George Lucas got it? That kind of sequence is right out of the John Carter stories. John Carter might have swords instead of light sabers, and airships instead of X-Wings, but they're absolutely cut from the same cloth.

BRITANNIA, A BRAND NEW COMIC FROM VALIANT FOR 201611/27/15 @ 6:34 pm EST
On the Graham Norton Show, currently airing on BBC 1, with a guest list including Daniel Radcliffe, Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch
and James MacAvoy,
we got a tease as to a certain plot point from the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.
Noting that Daniel Radcliffe has shaved his head for Imperium
, a film where he plays an FBI agent infiltrating a group of Nazi skinhead, Norton asked MacAvoy about his own head shaving experience for X-Men: Apocalypse
. And confirming that we will discover how Professor Xavier goes bald.
Norton asked “Is there a good reason for why he goes bald or is it really dull?
MacAvoy replied “He ends up going through something so horrible and painful that he literally half pulls his hair out half… it falls out” to winces from Graham and the audience. “Maybe or maybe not”
Asked if he should have told the audience that he admitted: “I just sh*t myself because I know, Fox Studios who own me might be angry with me for sharing that.”

It will take three films to get for Prometheus
to sync up with Alien
if you don’t count Prometheus
. According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Ridley Scott
has confirmed there will be an additional two films after
his upcoming Alien: Covenant
. “Its a very complex story. Its an evolution of what I first did withPrometheus 1
,” he said at a press conference in Sydney, Australia. “Prometheus 1
was borne out of my frustration that on Alien 1
in 1979 – I only did one as I don’t normally do sequels. I was amazed that in the 3 that followed that no-one asked the question ‘why the Alien, who made it and why?’ Very basic questions. So I came up with the notion of Prometheus 1,
which starts to indicate who might have made it and where it came from.”
The new film will be shot in Sydney’s Fox Studios in March and tell the tale of the colony ship Covenant
as it meets up with Michael Fassbender
‘s homicidal android David.
“I’m now going to the next one, which is the next evolution directly connected with the first one, which was this Shaw, when he[sic] replaced Michael Fassbender in two pieces and we’ll kind of pick it up there and it will evolve,” he said. Previously, it was assumed Noomi Rapace
would be returning as Shaw, Scott indicated she will only appear briefly in the new film. “When that’s finished there’ll be another one,” Scott continued. “And then another one which will gradually drive into the back entrance of the film in 1979.”
Scott’s ultimate aim is to explain how that derelict ship in the original Alien
crashed and answer two questions that have remained in his mind since completing the first film: “Why was this space jockey there and why did he have an Alien inside him?” The answers require four films, it seems.Alien: Covenant
lands in theaters on October 6th, 2017.
