A bit more actual comics news has come out of the San Diego Comic-Con as IDW Publishing announced it is teaming up with writers Zane and Brea Grant (We Will Bury You, Suicide Girls) and artist EricJ (Rex Mundi, Fly) for their new creator-owned miniseries Let’s Play God, coming this October.

From the Press Release:
When a mysterious killer begins targeting members of a fierce all-girl punk rock band, our hero Mel must face a dark, dangerous world of blood and evil to find the killer and save her own life!

“It’s like Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in the Pacific Northwest… but cooler,” Brea Grant said.

In the style of Italian slasher psycho-horror, LET’S PLAY GOD combines a punk spirit and kinetic art with a chilling storyline, promising a truly unique four-issue miniseries. After witnessing a murder, Mel finds her and her bandmates have now become targets of the killer. With the list of suspects growing and trust among friends eroding, Mel must find the killer before it’s too late for all of them. This descent into an imaginative world of darkness is sure to delight fans of horror, music, and unbridled adventure.

“We’ve given a punk girl who can barely pay her rent the responsibility of stopping a maniac from killing everyone she knows,” Zane Grant said. “It’s terrifying, really. And I wouldn’t be surprised if our readers petitioned the editor to have our creative team committed.”

“EricJ brings his own brilliant take on Portland, the punk scene, and deadly slashers,” Brea Grant said. “And my brother, Zane, did a pretty good job, too.”

“I can’t express how excited I am about this project,” EricJ said. “Working with Zane and Brea has been awesome. This is the first project I’ve worked on that feels like it’s set in a world that I’ve lived in, which is exciting for me. And the fact that we’re bringing a bit of noir into it is making me feel right at home and adds up to a unique setting for the story. Top that off with getting to work again with editor Denton J. Tipton, and the incredible challenge of contributing full-color art for the first time in my career, it’s fair to say that I’m having the time of my life!”

The series will be supported by editions signed by the creators, as well as variant covers by acclaimed artists Fábio Moon (Casanova, Day Tripper), Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash, Bloodstrike), and Dennis Calero (X-Factor, Cowboys & Aliens).

After a series of excellent projects with the Grants, IDW is proud to invite readers on their vivid new journey. Lovers of music, mayhem, madness, and great comics won’t want to miss out this October!

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

Published

on

As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

Synopsis:
In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

Published

on

The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
