SPECIAL SNEAK PEEK PILOT SCREENINGS
WEDNESDAY, JULY 23

6:00 p.m. — It’s OK, you can peek — WBTV gets Comic-Con off to a dramatic start for the seventh year in a row by hosting a special sneak peek, world-premiere screening event on Preview Night, debuting some of the most hotly anticipated new series of the year. For 2014, WBTV will screen the complete pilot episodes of The Flash, Constantine and iZOMBIE. Additionally, Warner Bros. Animation will unveil a brand-new episode of Teen Titans Go! Ballroom 20

The Flash: From the Arrow creative team of executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and director David Nutter, The Flash is a fast-paced super hero drama based upon the characters from DC Comics that follows the high-speed adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. With a pilot written by Berlanti, Kreisberg and DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the action drama follows police scientist and everyday guy Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), who, after an unexpected Particle Accelerator accident, is suddenly charged with the ability to move at incredible speeds, which he uses to help the people of Central City.

Constantine: Based upon the characters from DC Comics and executive produced by Daniel Cerone (Dexter) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight films), Constantine reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine (Matt Ryan), a morally challenged character who doesn’t come down on the side of either good or evil … but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond.

iZOMBIE: Co-created and executive produced by Rob Thomas & Diane Ruggiero-Wright (Veronica Mars), along with executive producers Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge (also of Veronica Mars), Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time) stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore, a 25-year-old medical resident on the fast track to a perfect life … until she’s turned into a zombie. Liv transfers her residency to the coroner’s office for access to the brains she must reluctantly eat, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she now solves homicides to quiet the voices in her head. iZOMBIE is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for Vertigo.

Teen Titans Go!: Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Beast Boy and Raven continue the fun in Teen Titans Go! with all-new comedic adventures, giving viewers a look at what life is really like as a teen super hero … once the cape comes off.

Every fall, our televisions are bombarded with new television series, most of which are run-of-the-mill cop dramas, or medical shows or the always reliable court room procedurals. While there are usually one or two stand-outs, most find their way into the proverbial trash can pretty quickly. This fall, things will be much different as comic book properties are invading our living rooms like never before as multiple comic book properties are headed to the small screen, joining the hit CW series Arrow. The first being a spin-off from that series, The Flash. We’ve already seen some cross-over episodes featuring the two characters, something that is likely to happen again as the two progress. Also joining the field are Gotham which will be airing on Fox, which explores the origins of many of the Batman rogues we’re familiar with, including Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and The Riddler. We’ll also see the younger days of Jim Gordon and his relationship with a very young Bruce Wayne. Finally, we have a series that took many folks by surprise, Constantine, which can be seen on NBC.

It was announced today that Gotham and The Flash will have their world premier at the famous San Diego Comic Con, in what is being called WBTV/DC Entertainment Saturday Night. Also being featured that night are exclusive video presentations of Constantine, with a visit from some of the cast and crew of the show. Also being revealed on July 26th will be a never-before-seen teaser video for the third season of Arrow, followed by a Q and A from the cast. Certainly and event not to be missed by DC Comic fans. Check out the press release below for all the details and be sure to check back to Comic Book Therapy for all the news coming out of San Diego in July.

Ever so kind, gracious, and just a swell fellow to talk to and listen up on….and a great actor to boot. Danny Glover was pretty much one of the biggest names in legend to be at this year’s Phoenix Comic Con. Going over a legacy of over 30 years in TV and film, and noting most of his famous roles there, Mr. Glover brought smiles, laughter, and great memories to young and old alike.

 

DG01

First friendly Greet (L), then on to talk on his amazing career (C,R)

Mr. Glover got on stage to his panel around 3 pm, Sunday, June 8th.  A couple of round-off questions were made by the host presenter for the panel before the audience’s turn, citing inquiry on what were his influences to pursue theater and acting in general.  After which, the spotlight on Q n A turned to the general audience, going over various times in Glover’s acting career such as his turn on the TV Miniseries classic LONESOME DOVE, his famous role in the Spielberg drama epic THE COLOR PURPLE, and the ever-popular LETHAL WEAPON action film series   Other talk focused on the endearing baseball fantasy comedy-drama ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD, the sequel followup to the 80′s sci-fi action flick PREDATOR, PREDATOR 2, and others.

Comic Book Therapy took time out to ask him on his challenging time working the fourth and final feature of the LETHAL WEAPON film series, LETHAL WEAPON 4.  We glossed over inquiring on his experience working with Martial arts action film legend/sensation Jet Li on the film as well as going over the more enduring parts of the movie’s final showdown and finale.  Catch the video segments below for a look at the coverage.

At panel’s end,  Danny Glover most assuredly brought a smile to his fans at all he had to talk, laugh, and reminisce on, not to mention a few new projects down the road.    We definitely hope to see him again at yet another Phoenix Comic Con!

Of all the guests that were announced for Phoenix Comic Con, this man produced the biggest wows of the con. With only a small list of roles of major note, this actor won the hearts and minds of fans rather quickly and IMMENSELY at that. We are talking about none other Nathan Fillion, reknown star of the sensational but tragically short-lived retro/western-flavored scifi series spectacular FIREFLY and his current hit mystery/crime/romance series CASTLE. Fillion appeared at his panel in the late afternoon of Saturday, June 7th. His panel being one of the most highly anticipated of all it seemed, even other guests such as Bruce Campbell, and ARROW‘s Stephen Amell made rather significant comical note to it as if they were playing second fiddle to his event.

Fillion brought on the charm and friendliness he is known well for on and off-screen and talked about life on the set of his famous roles and what they meant to him, hilarious anecdotes, and opened the floor to all the amusing Q n A that followed soon after. He even touched on a few points related to some of his answers in the Q n A on subjects that were of great interest to him as well(such as getting second chance for Firefly living in the moment of treasuring his time filming the Serenity movie). He also touched on subjects more related to a practical and political note such as green energy technologies, and use of electric cars, as such resulting from being asked about what gadgets would interest him.)

Nathan Fillion, entertaining the fans and loving it. (L-C-R)

 

With each question he addressed from a fan, he amusingly offered a watch as a courtesy gift for their participation. QnA continued with fun facts about one episode taking place at a comic con that Star Trek TNG star Jonathon Frakes (Commander Riker, “Number One”) directed.

He ended off with mentioning how much he feels connected with his fans at that moment when he ends a panel, and made his pleasantry exit.  All in all, fans were thrilled and delighted with Nathan Fillion’s appearance at Phoenix Comic Con 2014… With many hoping and wishing he will return for next year the same.  Let us hope he does…

Whether you know him as the beloved Cairo-connection friend-in-need Sallah from the Indiana Jones movies, or as the lovable yet gruff heroic dwarf Gimli in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy, or even more uniquely in his various roles in the Wing Commander game and animated series, he has been definitely established as one of the most iconic character actors of the last near 35 years.  Yes, we are talking Mr. John Rhys-Davies!

John Rhys-Davies took to the stage Friday 12 pm noontime on June 6th of the Phoenix ComiCon. He immediately began on a unique discussion, a topic of much concern to him involving the epidemic of today’s developing youth and drug addictions and abuse, both narcotic illicit and prescription and the mental issues they inflict upon themselves. Then came the fun stuff where he entertained the audience with witty anecdotes on his profession and roles, moving onto audience Q n A discussion on his roles, mostly focusing on the roles of Gimli and Sallah the same there.

Comic Book Therapy had the opportunity to ask Mr. Rhys-Davies on he engaged himself and to what degree with some of the more physical aspects to these two biggest known roles himself. Reply? An amusing one that resulted in a couple of hilarious anecdotes with difficulties on the set in not wanting to engage in the more dangerous stunts of some of his past roles(rightfully so, considering the damage and injury the stunt doubles took for them).

Mr. Davies continued to reflect more insights into his work that settled mainly on these two most famous roles as the Q n A urged forward and even reflected on how his children are a great inspiration to his life the same.  Catch the video segment below for a look at this event.

All ending to it,  the panel showed the makings of what a remarkable and legendary actor of strong intellect and great wit John Rhys-Davies is and we all at the con look forward to having him back at PCC 2014 or other major convention circuits in the future.

After its successful 2012 debut at San Diego’s Petco Park, The Walking Dead Escape expanded with three additional events in major cities in 2013, including New York, where the course was integrated aboard the aircraft carrier the USS Intrepid. Based on fans’ enthusiastic response, Skybound decided to take the events to the next level with a national tour.
“I’m thrilled to offer fans new and old an even bigger, more interactive experience this time around. It’s great to see fans of the comic book and television series live in the world I created so many years ago,” says Robert Kirkman, creator and executive producer of The Walking Dead.
The course, which has already thrilled tens of thousands of participants since its debut, allows fans to participate as “Walkers” or “Survivors” as they climb, crawl, and slide their way through various zombie- infected evacuation zones. Those lucky enough to make it to the decontamination zone will have their level of infection assessed and then participate in the event’s Fan Experience.

Those participating as Walkers will be transformed into the undead by professional makeup artists, and they’ll receive “zombie training” prior to their release on the course. Keeping in the spirit of entertainment and accessibility to all, The Walking Dead Escape is not a race, and its participants will not be timed or required to run.
To buy tickets or for more information about The Walking Dead Escape, please visit: www.thewalkingdeadescape.com or www.tickets.com

We had the opportunity of participating in the first year of The Walking Dead Escape at San Diego Comic Con and we had a blast. You can check our review and pictures of the event by clicking HERE

See you in San Diego!

Jon Bernthal (Shane from The Walking Dead) had a panel to himself this past weekend at Walker Stalker Con Boston.  Naturally it was the most packed panel of the weekend, and we heard some interesting information from his time on The Walking Dead.

He started off by talking about his history on the show.  Before the show had even aired, he was booed heavily at New York Comic Con due to fans knowledge of the character from the comics.  He liked it and was happy to change their perspective a bit on Shane.

He found that many people agreed with Shane’s actions during the second season, even though he, “…did a lot of messed up things.”  Bernthal talked about how many of the current cast members on the show will try to tell him upcoming plot points, but he likes to watch it on Sunday night like everyone else.

Bernthal joked quite often that Judith was his baby. Whenever anyone tried to correct him or imply that she wasn’t, he jokingly got angry with them.

A lot of the questions had to do with what would happen if Shane was still around on the show. Such as what would it be like and how did having Shane around affect the relationships of others.  Bernthal was at a loss for words on a lot of them, but had a clear answer for one.  One guest asked if Shane would still be crazy if Rick had never come back. “No,” answered Bernthal.  He described that there was one panel early on in the comics that solidified how he was going to play Shane.  It had Shane staring at Lori, Carl, and Rick all happy and the confusing emotions Shane was feeling while he watched that happen.

Bernthal described how he lived on his own in the woods before season 2, as Shane was going to be an outcast this season.  It was just on the outskirts of the farm.  He wanted to establish that rapport with the other actors so his isolation came more natural.

One of the editors of The Walking Dead created a montage of “sweet” moments between Rick and Shane. The editor named it “Brokeback Dead.”  While it hasn’t been released, Bernthal said he has never laughed at anything so hard.

One of the few questions not about The Walking Dead was what Bernthal was working on next. He just finished filming a movie in Europe called Fury. It stars Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf.  It’s about a group of soldiers in World War II that fight off a Nazi force in one tank and comes out later this year.

A few questions touched upon Frank Darabont’s departure during the second season.  Bernthal didn’t answer many, seemingly not wanting to ruffle any feathers.  He did say that Shane’s story arc did change a bit once Frank left though.  He didn’t say in what way.  He mentioned wanting Shane to kill someone before the end of the show, and elaborated with, “It was important for me to kill a person.  It took him to the level he needed to be for the ending.”

The ending of season 2 is often talked about for good reason, and Bernthal touched on that as well.  “To me, Shane took Rick out into the woods to have Rick Kill him.  Couldn’t go back as it wouldn’t make sense. How would he explain why Rick wasn’t there?”

After some poking and prodding, he finally opened up about how the ending was originally supposed to go.  “I wanted the gun Shane brought out to not be loaded and have Rick realize that Shane wasn’t going to kill him. Then Carl kills him before he can do anything.”

Since it was the day before Father’s Day, the panels was shown a bunch of pictures of Bernthal’s kids.  Cuteness ensued. Then one picture of him shirtless flexing slipped in. Naturally the place went wild.

This past weekend (June 13th-15th) Boston hosted Walker Stalker Con.  A new con to the Boston area, Walker Stalker Con is all about zombies and horror films, but mostly AMC’s The Walking Dead.  It was quite a lot of fun.

The con was held at the Westin by the Waterfront, a venue that previously hosted Boston Comic Con.  Considering the lack of size in just one venue area, Walker Stalker Con took up two sections of the hotel.  As I thought the Boston Con hosted here was very cramped, I was pleasantly surprised at how well they used the space.  But this did lead to the sections being quite separated.  I wandered around the Exhibition hall wondering how to get to the vendors area.  Guests had to walk back the way they came, through the ticket pickup area, and then to the other side of the hotel to find the vendors.  If you attempted during the early hours of the con, it was almost impossible due to the amount of people. I instead walked outside and around the building to get to the vendors area.  If the ticket pickup area had been moved, as well as some photo-ops, congestion wouldn’t have been as big of a problem.

Considering the narrowed scope of this convention, I was pleasantly surprised at the wide array of merchandise the vendors offered.  Most were horror film or zombie related, but I saw a lot of fans finding things that weren’t related.  As a fan of The Walking Dead comics, I was very disappointed to see that not one vendor was selling the comics outside the most recent issue.  There was one store in the Exhibition hall selling only the first compendium, Vol. 1 of the trades, and most the recent trade.

The amount of stars available for photo ops was just astounding.  The majority of the main cast for The Walking Dead was there and all of them were available for photo ops.  Jon Bernthal (Shane from The Walking Dead) was easily the most popular.  Bernthal’s line took up a decently sized chunk of the Exhibition line.  It became difficult to ask questions though, as AMC has a tight grip any actors who are still alive on the show.  Sean Patrick Flannery (Connor MacManus, The Boondock Saints) had a decent sized line as well.  Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan (Glen and Maggie, The Walking Dead) didn’t seem to develop as big of lines.  They were stuck in the corner of the vendor’s area and were somewhat hard to find.

The cosplaying was great, even if everyone was dressed similar. Having a zombie con somewhat pigeon holes what you can do for costumes. Although I did see someone dressed as Russell from Up, which was rather strange. Wasn’t even a zombie Russell.  There was a lot of Daryl Dixons as well.  I lost count at the amount of crossbows I saw throughout the con.  There was the occasional Shane and Rick, while I saw a few Michonnes.

I attended the Friday the 13th panel which featured Adrienne King (Alice, Friday the 13th), Amy Steel (Ginny, Friday the 13th Part 2), Tom Morga (Friday the 13th: A New Beginning), and Doug Tait (Jason, Freddy vs Jason).  The four talked about their time in the franchise, which film was their favorite, and what we can expect in the future.  They hinted at a new TV show about the Voorhees family before the events of Friday the 13th, in the same vein as Bates Motel I’d imagine.  The group agreed that The Exorcist was the scariest movie that they had ever seen, and that having being on a horror film set has kept them from being scared at a movie since.

Overall I had a fun time at Walker Stalker Con 2014.  Considering the amount of people in attendance, I expect even more to come back for 2015.

I took a few photos while at the con. Check them out below!

His face, his charm, his comical dialogue with others…exceptional, unique, UNMISTAKABLY HIS! Bruce Campbell took to the stage at PCC Saturday morning, June 7th, and laid it on thick. What made Campbell seemingly different from other guests’s entrances was his less than casual appearance. Royal blue sport coat and slacks, he took to the stage with a friendly start and immediately the awesome wise crack humor-fest began.

He proceeded with such events as having an Army of Darkness cosplay contest, where he rattled his contestants with the comic flair and style of a world class gameshow host. He then briefly talked about life in the trenches of past and present work in film and TV. Time proceeded to the usual Q n A sessions with the audience where the comic rattling of eager fans began anew with rapid fire succession.

Its been a week since Phoenix Comicon 2014 concluded and their plans for next year’s con are already in motion. This was Phoenix Comicon’s biggest con yet! The official numbers are in and attendance was just confirmed at 77,818! Last year the attendance was 55,313 which obviously means that this con will lee getting bigger and bigger each year. I believe this makes PHXCC the third largest Comic Convention in the U.S. (San Diego being the number one and New York Comic Con being number two).

This year there was a lot of amazing panels and activities planned through the weekend. Special guests included: Stan Lee, Todd McFarlane, John Barrowman, Cary Elwes, Nathan Fillion, Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar, among many others.

Speaking of Stan Lee and Todd McFarlane, we had the chance to attend Stan’s panel, moderated by McFarlane, and it was a blast. Both of them like to joke a lot and Stan was charming and funny as always. Stan talked about his cameos in the Marvel movies and how  he got started in the industry, pretty much the stuff that we already know, but we don’t mind listening to anyways.

10410208_819166251429819_5193852093038162744_n

Stan also confirmed that he will have a cameo in the Guardians Of The Galaxy movie, but he has no idea what his scene has to do with the movie. Everyone in the audience laughed so hard when he said this.

10427287_819166241429820_5582181348971916046_nSpeaking of GOTG, Michael Rooker crashed the panel and talked Stan’s cameo. He obviously didn’t say much about it, only that he saw it on the big screen and it was awesome.

10464352_819166321429812_1652270766564265045_n

The panel was a success, everyone had fun and watching Todd and Stan interact its quite an experience. Stan was sure to let Todd know that people were there to listen to Lee not McFarlane from time to time. Todd took it like a champ, I mean when Stan Lee gives you a hard time theres nothing much you can do, right?

The artist alley was full of amazing talent, local and international. We had Sina Grace, Todd Nauck, Jim Hanna, Jon Goff, Marat Mychaels, Jeff Piña,  Francis Manapul,  Benjamin Glendenning, Brian Pulido, Tony Moore, Evil Robo, Dark Horse Comics, Avatar Press, Boom! Studios, and many many more!

Groups like the 501st, Arizona Avengers and Justice League Arizona had a great presence in the con floor. The displays and their set ups were nothing short from extraordinary! Adults and kids had a blast stopping by their booth and taking pictures with their favorite super hero or villain.

Matt Solberg and Joe Boudrie have a great team, and we can’t wait for next year! Thank you so much to the PHXCC Staff for putting up a great show, and for letting us attend.

DCMovieBannerIt’s what all DC, nay comic book movie fans have been waiting for. When will we see or hear more about Warner Brother’s plans for the comic giants characters? It’s no secret Marvel has been kicking DC’s tail in the realm of movies, and word on the street is WB has been crafting a well laid out plan to combat the Marvel Juggernaut.

Former Deadline founder Nikkie Finke launched her new site after her non-compete with Penske Media Group ran out, and she kicked things off with a bang by announcing WB/DC’s movie plans. From what she is hearing from her sources, WB will look to make the formal announcement at this years San Diego Comic Con. She did warn that the line up is still in a little bit of flux, so it’s not set in stone. The line up is as follows:

DCcomicsMovieMay 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

Not only are we getting the ultimate team-up in a Justice League movie, but it looks as if Warner Brothers will take characters and team them up in smaller outings. This is evident with Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice currently filming and The Flash/Green Lantern team up film happening. One thing to take away from Finke’s report is that Green Lantern will NOT be Ryan Reynolds.

She also dropped some tidbits as to why Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was delayed. According to her sources, it’s so that they had time to nail down some more cameos for the film. We already know that Ray Fisher will be playing Victor Stone AKA Cyborg in the film, but she also confirmed the long running rumor that The Flash would appear too. Green Lantern is another possibility, while Aquaman will be introduced in Justice League. As of right now Warner Brothers is still negotiating with actors on their cameo appearances and subsequent film appearances.

So it looks as if Warner Brothers will have quite the presence at Comic Con this year. Like stated above the current film line-up in said not to be set in stone, so some changes might happen. With Shazam being confirmed, it looks as if we MIGHT know where The Rock fits into all of this. However, we will just have to wait and see. For the latest on all things DC Cinematic Universe, make sure to check back here at Comic Book Therapy.

Phoenix Comicon has been a total success. This is Dark Horse Comics first year at the event, and might not be the last! They had some sweet merchandise and some amazing talent signing for the fans. It’s been really hot also, literally.

Anyways today we got some great news via press release:

NEW ONGOING SERIES RESURRECTIONISTS, FROM FRED VAN LENTE, ASKS: ARE YOU NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCED?!

—It’s a heist three thousand years in the making, and if the Resurrectionists can unlock the past, they can fight the future! Following his success with what io9 called “the best superhero comic this Free Comic Book Day,” as well as the launches of Brain Boy: The Men from G.E.S.T.A.L.T., the ongoing webcomic Project Black Sky (at ProjectBlackSky.net), and Conan the Avenger, Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies, Archer & Armstrong) brings his first ongoing creator-owned series, Resurrectionists, to Dark Horse! Illustrated by artists Maurizio Rosenzweig (Clown Fatale) and Moreno Dinisio (Dead Body Road), with covers from Juan Doe (G.I. Joe), Resurrectionists is where past lives come to life!

Framed architect-turned-thief Jericho Way has discovered he’s a Resurrectionist, one of a select group of people who can not only remember their past lives, but become them. Two groups are now after his services—the Sojourn corporation, which wants to exploit his powers for mysterious purposes, and a motley crew of modern-day tomb robbers who have been trying to pull the same impossible heist for 3,000 years—and if Jericho joins them, he may steal back his own future!

Recent praise for New York Times best-selling author Fred Van Lente:

“Van Lente gives readers just enough of everything to satisfy curiosity without overwhelming while extending an open invitation to come back for more.”—Comic Book Resources

“Fred Van Lente and his team start off slow, but quickly burst forward in a dead sprint . . . It seems that our favorite barbarian is still in very good hands.”—Newsarama

For more information, check out CBR’s exclusive series announcement, and look for Resurrectionists #1 at your local comic shop on November 9!

And don’t forget, Fred Van Lente’s The Complete Silencers (MAY140072) and Action Philosophers (JUN140072) release in September and October, respectively!

In the late 1970s and early ’80s, some of the most inventive and inspired alternative comics found a place on shelves. ElfQuest offered a unique vision of black and white fantasy, while Nexus gave readers a version of the superhero idea more rooted in science fiction than capes and cowls. Meanwhile, Groo the Wanderer took a humorous take on the sword and sorcery genre, popularized by the likes of Conan the Barbarian in the previous decade. Over 30 years later, we pay tribute to some of comics’ longest-running ongoing collaborations for a discussion with the creators themselves! Join Richard and Wendy Pini (ElfQuest), Mike Baron (Nexus), and Mark Evanier (Groo) as they share the secrets to the success of a few of comics’ most revered story lines!20140530-151604-54964571.jpg

We have some great news for those who will attend Phoenix Comicon 2014! The man himself, Todd McFarlane will be at this year’s convention! He will be signing autographs and moderating a panel. Here are more details courtesy of the Phoenix Comicon press release:

We are very excited to announce a special guest appearance by Todd McFarlane at Phoenix Comicon 2014 on Sunday, June 8th! As part of this event, Todd will have a limited number of free autograph passes available in the Exhibitor Hall starting at 10 a.m. in the autograph area. Passes are first come, first served, limited to one per attendee, and you must be over 13 years old to get a pass. Each pass holder is limited to two autographs – no photography or sketches are available at this signing. After the signing, Todd will be moderating Stan Lee’s panel in the North Ballroom! This is an event you will not want to miss!

Cartoonist, artist, writer, toy designer and entrepreneur, Todd is best known for his work in comic books, such as the series Spawn. McFarlane became a comic book superstar due to his work on Marvel Comics’ Spider-Man franchise, on which he was the artist to draw the first full appearances of the supervillain Venom. In 1992, he helped form Image Comics, pulling the occult anti-hero character Spawn from his high school portfolio and updating him for the 1990s. Spawn was a popular hero in the 1990s and encouraged a trend in creator-owned comic book properties. Since leaving his duties on Spawn, McFarlane has illustrated comic books less often, focusing on entrepreneurial efforts, such as McFarlane Toys and Todd McFarlane Entertainment, a film and animation studio.

How cool is that? Since tickets are extremely limited, make sure you are there early. This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss.

The following is the audio interview written out for you, transcribed by my cool colleague, Jake Lester.

You were brought in to consult on the soon to be released Michael Bay movie. Now, 30 years ago, if someone had said to you “One day this one shot comic is going to explode into numerous issues, cartoons and not one, but two movie franchises” what would you have said at that time?

01coverQuite simply Peter and I would have laughed you out of the building. Or out of our living room, which is where Mirage Studios actually came from. We never really had a studio for Mirage, it was our living room! Personally I feel like I stand on the shoulders of giants. Guys like Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and Wally Wood inspired me to draw. So when it came time for me to try and peruse my career and convince my parents I wouldn’t be living in their basement the rest of my life. I had a new set of heroes, guys that are very directly responsible for the inspiration behind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, was fellow Canadian Dave Sim, who created Cerebus. With Cerebus he reintroduced the idea that underground comics, black and white comics, they could be published, they could be successful and they could find a fan base in the direct market. He kind of stated out his whole thing with a parody, drawing this cool little aardvark running around like Conan the Barbarian drawn in a very Barry Windsor Smith style of the original Conan comic series. And we were like ‘Holy S**T, if guys like Dave Sims can do it.’ Peter and I were like, ‘let’s stop sending submission to Marvel and DC and not work there. Let’s go back to our underground roots. Let’s self publish our book. ‘ So we drew it, I got a $500 dollar income tax return, we cleared out Pete’s bank account, I borrowed $1000 from an uncle, and we were able to publish/print 3000 issues of issue one assuming we would not sell one single copy. When we got the books back from the printer, we actually made furniture out of them in our living room, which was our studio (laughs). But thanks to some early fans that came along, and got a kick out of our first issue, our parody, they gobbled up the first issue the 3000 copies, we did a second printing. And then, because I grew up in Maine, I went back to cooking lobsters for the summer, because that’s how we made our living back in those days in New England. You work from Memorial Day to Labor Day and try and save as much money as possible to make it through the winter. Then when the fall of 1984 came around we had gotten some calls through the people we distributed through and 114820they said, ‘When are you guys going to put out a second issue?’ And we were like, ‘Well, we never thought about doing a second issue, we probably should.’ So, by the first part of (19)85, preorders on the second issue were enough that we could actually pay our rent, eat all the macaroni and cheese we wanted to and draw comic books for a living. At the point the dream came true. We are living like our heroes and our inspirations, drawing comic books and we honestly didn’t think that it could ever get any better, and we didn’t really expect it to go much farther than that. So, to get back to the original question, you know that was back in 1995-85 and here I am 30 years later still working on Turtles, still drawing Turtles, still consulting on movie projects and entertainment projects is mind blowing to me in every aspect. My first thought is I want to thank the fans that gave me the greatest job on Earth first and foremost, because I’d probably be pushing a shopping cart around somewhere yelling, ‘I use to draw Ninja Turtles.’ (laughs) It was the perfect storm and the perfect combination, and it’s been exciting to be a part of this whole adventure for 30 years now, it’s crazy.

They’re almost bringing the Turtles back to their intended audience, in regards to age, with the movie itself. How do you look at that?

tmnt-movie-largeWhat’s been so cool is throughout the whole process, again things publishers like Dave Sim taught us, is that when you create your own project create your own property, your IP (Intellectual Property) as they call it now days, you’re in full control of everything that’s to be done with it or not done with it. So when we were originally approached to licensed the Turtles for cartoons, movies and that kind of things we were a little a taken back. We never saw it going in that direction. We said well w just wrote this silly little comic book that something we had written for ourselves, it was something we wanted to publish because we wanted to be cartoonists and the fact that it was reaching an audience beyond that is amazing to us. So when we worked on the animated series, we knew just writing black and white comics for ourselves, we were actually taking the series down to a level that is meant for six and seven year olds. And so things like changing the origin a bit, changing the look of the Turtles a little bit, Pete Larid came up with the idea for the different colored bandanas. We contributed it to every aspect of its evolution into animated cartoons, comics and toys. We also had full approval, so we got to approve that final look. Again, foolishly thinking I guess, when we were working the early animated series, we were blown away that this worked as a comic book there is no way kids are going to related to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And when the first five parts animated episode came out in 1987, between Christmas of 87 and New Year, kid’s holidays, the fact that it did very well and got good ratings that gave the animation company the ability to step up and say okay we will fund additional cartoon shows. It gave the toy company optimism (to say) okay we are going to go ahead and make the toys, which came out in June of 1988. From then on it was like, ‘Holy S**T. What have we done?!’ It just kind of took off. Transitioning from the early cartoon show and early toys into the first movies it was a big step for us because we were thinking okay we’ve been very successful in three areas, comics, toys and cartoons, a movie is a whole other ball of wax.tmnt-movie-2014 Luckily we were so fortunate to work with Golden Harvest, who produced all the original Jackie Chan movies, and Steve Barron, who had directed some of the best music videos at that time with Dire Straight’s Money for Nothing and Billie Jean (Michael Jackson). And of course the icing on the cake was Jim Henson’s Creature Shop bringing the Turtles to life. That was version of the Turtles that was now out there, and the fans came out and embraced it. So we had a comic book look, a toy look, a cartoon look and a movie look. Then you fast forward to all the versions of the Turtles that has been done over the past 30 years right up to Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman’s Turtles now, they wanted to bring it into the here and now. They wanted to update it. They knew they had to overcome all these little obstacles, not only with character design, but with martial arts for example. We’ve all been spoiled by so many incredible martial arts movies, so the martial arts has to be believable. The characters have to work, they have to be funny, they have to have all the action that we hope the fans will get a kick out of. I think they have been able to do that. From everything I have seen on the movie, I’m very happy with what they’ve done so far.

You’ve been all over the world, you’ve been to conventions all over America, and you’re coming to Calgary this week. You’re going to be there Friday and Saturday correct? Not Sunday?

Yeah, we’re coming in Thursday and we are doing events all day Friday and Saturday. That’s what been cool with the 30th anniversary (debut of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) my wife and business manager has booked a lot of shows for us this year, but she’s found places that we haven’t really been before. Which is exciting for us, because we get to meet fans that normally wouldn’t have the opportunity to come to San Diego, or see some of the other bigger shows. To me that’s my favorite part, you know like I said earlier, without the fans, the fans from day one the fans that are new the fans from the animated series or the Turtle video games, but they found something that they like about the characters. They are just such cool people, it’s inspiring. You feel not worthy for their respect, but it also energizes me to want to work harder and do cooler stuff that will want them to help keep me in my job.

Phoenix Comicon is proud to announce that actors Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar will be attending Phoenix Comicon 2014.

“We are thrilled to have Adam, Burt and Julie give Phoenix Comicon a huge “POW!” and “BAM!” of fun for this year’s Convention,”says Convention Director Matt Sorberg.

Adam West is best known for his role as Bruce Wayne and his crime-fighting alter ego, Batman in the television series Batman from 1966-68. A film version was released in 1966 as well.

West often reprised his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne, first in the animated series, The New Adventures of Batman, and in other shows such as Super Friends: The Legendary Super Powers Show and The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians. In 1979, West once again put on the Batsuit for the live-action TV special Legends of the Superheroes. In 1985, DC Comics named West as one of the honorees in the company’s 50th anniversary publication Fifty Who Made DC Great for his work on the Batman series.

Most recently, West has done voice over work, most notably as a fictional version of himself as mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island on the animated series Family Guy.

Burt Ward is best known for his portrayal of Robin in the television series Batman (1966–68) and its theatrical film spin-off. At the height of Batman’s popularity, Ward recorded a series of tracks under the production of Frank Zappa.

After the end of Batman, Ward re-emerged to act in more than 30 made-for-television films. In 1985, DC Comics named Ward as one of the honorees in the company’s 50th anniversary publication Fifty Who Made DC Great for his work on the Batman series. Ward appeared in numerous reunions with co-star Adam West. The most memorable included reprising their roles as Batman and Robin on the animated series called The New Adventures of Batman, the television theater show Legends of the Superheroes, and the 2003 television movie, Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt.

Currently, Ward continues to promote work for the charitable organization called Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions, Inc. that he and his wife founded.

Julie Newmar is best known for her portrayal of the “purrfect” villainess, Catwoman in the television series Batman (1966–67). Newmar famously modified her Catwoman costume, which is now in the Smithsonian Institution. Her extensive career in television also included appearances on the series’ Bewitched, Star Trek, The Beverly Hillbillies and The Twilight Zone.

In addition to her work in television, Newmar has appeared in several films, such as Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Serpent of the Nile and The Rookie. Newmar is also an accomplished stage actress, and won a Tony Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role of the Swedish vixen, Katrin Sveg in the 1961′s Marriage-Go-Round. The The 1995 film To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar pays homage to the actress.

In 2003, Newmar appeared as herself in the TV-Movie Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt alongside former Batman co-stars Adam West and Burt Ward.
