Published

on

Buffy is back!

Joss Whedon (Angel, Serenity) and Christos Gage (Angel & Faith) return to unite the Buffyverse for a four-issue Buffy the Vampire Slayer series this June!

This action-packed miniseries from Dark Horse Comics, called Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning, reunites the Buffyverse with the return of Angel, Faith, Illyria, and Fray, the Slayer from the future!

On top of that, Buffyverse alumnus artist Georges Jeanty (Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) also returns to lend his illustrative skills to the next installment.

Issue #1 (of four) boasts three variant covers by Stephanie Hans, Georges Jeanty with Karl Story and Dan Jackson, and Karl Moline. You can check out one to the right and the other two below. Give them a look-see, and then let us know what you think!

You can pre-order the first issue at your local comic shop in March before the series hits June 20, 2018.

Synopsis:
Following the world-altering finale of Season 11, Buffy and the Scoobies have had a laid-back year in the saving-the-world department. But as they’ve learned over their years of fighting the forces of darkness and thwarting many an apocalypse, nothing stays quiet for long.

When Dawn and Xander’s housewarming party is crashed by some familiar faces with news of an amassing force that must be reckoned with—Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, a vampire from the future—Buffy finds herself in a time warp that could alter the fate of the world and could spell the end for Buffy, her friends, and the Slayers forever.

Idris Elba Directs and Stars in Netflix’s HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME

Published

on

Like many of you out there, Idris Elba is one of my favorite actors working today. And it is with this in mind that I’m excited by today’s news that says Elba will be tackling The Hunchback of Notre Dame for Netflix.

THR reports that Elba will not only star in the film, but he will be directing and producing the music described as a “sonic and musical experience” as well. That’s a lot of hats there, Gunslinger.

For those who might be unaware, The Hunchback of Notre Dame is an 1831 novel by Victor Hugo that follows Quasimodo, a hunchback, who falls in love with the Gypsy Esmeralda. Michael Mitnick (The Current War, The Giver) will write the modern-day retelling with Fred Berger (La La Land) and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special) producing along with Elba and Ana Garanito.
