Film & TV / Rian Johnson to create all new STAR WARS trilogy
« on: 09 November, 2017, 10:31:10 pm »


Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Johnson will create a brand-new Star Wars trilogy, the first of which he is also set to write and direct, with longtime collaborator Ram Bergman onboard to produce.

As writer-director of The Last Jedi, Johnson conceived and realized a powerful film of which Lucasfilm and Disney are immensely proud. In shepherding this new trilogy, which is separate from the episodic Skywalker saga, Johnson will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.

“We all loved working with Rian on The Last Jedi,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “He’s a creative force, and watching him craft The Last Jedi from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.”

“We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi,” Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement. “Star Wars is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. We can’t wait to continue with this new series of films.”

General / The 1995 Mangafication of Judge Dredd
« on: 02 October, 2017, 07:40:56 pm »
As a follow-up to this ancient forum thread, a long scavenge of Japanese sites and vendors turned-up an elusive copy of the Shonen Jump AutumnSpecial – it features a promotional comic tie-in to the release of the 1995 Judge Dredd film.



It's unbelievable I know, but I can't read Japanese, so on a very superficial reading of panels, the 45 page story by Hitoshi Matsumoto & Mitsuyoshi Takasu looks like another re-imagining of the Rico yarn but in this version 'Rico' – I presume it's still Joe & Rico – seems to be a good 'un who gets cut down in the line of duty and 'Joe' must avenge him – both Judges are identified by the initials JD printed on their helmet badges.

The beloved hue and texture of bog-paper remains in the scanned and untouched pages bleow. For the unManga'd of us, read the panels from top right to left working downwards – the first 11 are sequential.

Books & Comics / The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: THE TEMPEST
« on: 20 July, 2017, 09:32:58 pm »
The final LOEG book.




Opening simultaneously in the panic-stricken headquarters of British Military Intelligence, the fabled Ayesha’s lost African city of Kor and the domed citadel of ‘We’ on the devastated Earth of the year 2996, the dense and yet furiously-paced narrative hurtles like an express locomotive across the fictional globe from Lincoln Island to modern America to the Blazing World; from the Jacobean antiquity of Prospero’s Men to the superhero-inundated pastures of the present to the unimaginable reaches of a shimmering science-fiction future. With a cast-list that includes many of the most iconic figures from literature and pop culture, and a tempo that conveys the terrible momentum of inevitable events, this is literally and literarily the story to end all stories.

Commencing as a six-issue run of unfashionable, outmoded and flimsy children’s comics that will make you appear emotionally backward if you read them on the bus, this climactic magnum opus will also reprint classic English super-team publication The Seven Stars from the murky black-and-white reaches of 1964. A magnificent celebration of everything comics were, are and could be, any appreciator or student of the medium would be unwise to miss The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Volume IV: THE TEMPEST.
