While Agent Scully urges him to tell a story that the panel would accept, Mulder’s need to believe is just too great.

In The X-Files: Conspiracy Theory – Everything Is Connected, players take turns as Fox Mulder as he uses the provided clues to explain his conspiracy theory to his FBI superiors. But reputation is everything at the FBI, and Mulder’s superiors are more interested in voting with the room rather than their gut. Mulder weaves together the conspiracy, and the superiors must deduce the way the rest of the room will vote… because the only thing worse than being an outlier is being a nut-case like Fox Mulder.

THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE #1
written by JOHN RIDLEY
art and cover by ALEX DOS DIAZ
variant cover by TBD

Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) examines the mythology of the DC Universe in this compelling new miniseries that reframes iconic moments of DC history and charts a previously unexplored sociopolitical thread as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.
This unique new series presents its story as prose by Ridley married with beautifully realized color illustrations from a selection of exciting illustrators and comics artists. Alex Dos Diaz provides art for #1, which follows the story of Jefferson Pierce, the man who will one day become Black Lightning, as he makes his way from being a young track star to a teacher and, ultimately, to his role as a hero.
Future issues focus on characters such as Karen and Mal Duncan, Tatsu Yamashiro and Renee Montoya.

Extensively researched and masterfully executed, THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE promises to be an experience unlike any other. You may think you know the history of the DC Universe...but the truth is far more complex. THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE isn't about saving the world—it's about having the strength to simply be who you are.

written by MARV WOLFMAN
art and cover by CLAUDIO CASTELLINI

"This is the best Superman story I've ever written." So says living legend Marv Wolfman, and when you've written hundreds of Superman stories as he has, it means a great deal. This gem of a tale—written and drawn from 2006-2009 for the SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL series—explodes from the DC archives as a triumphant tale of Clark Kent's fateful first days in Metropolis, which were far from easy. His early failures almost ensured there would never be a hero called Superman. Powerful writing and stunning art combine to conjure an inspiring story that needed to be published, one you will never forget, from a pair of master storytellers.

Mel V.’s Variants of the Week for October 17, 2018

What Up CHU? Mel. V here with your Variants of the Week for 10/17/18. OK I’m back full to 100 percent now that the con season is over and I recharged my mental brain and energy from being around a gazillion people. Sneaky week for Variants this week lets get right into it


Aquaman Vol 6 #41 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton Cover (Drowned Earth Prelude) – Middleton is back this week with another great cover. Not going to match the greatness of Batgirl 23, but his Mera covers do quite well. Midtown has a limit of 1 per person. To be honest I have no idea why


Batman Vol 3 #57 Cover B Variant Francesco Mattina Cover – Mattina rule ..ya already know. To be honest, Mattina is just getting better and better as an artist. Be witness to the “Level Up”.. That Deathstoke 37 looks amazing


Infinity Wars Weapon Hex #1 Cover B Variant Adam Kubert Connecting Cover – Marvel continues to throw things at the wall and hope they stick. In my opinion, I think this character may have some potential. I do think Spiderman/Punisher has a ton of potential though


Mall #2 Cover B Variant Cover – Shout out to James Haick from Scout comics ..I really enjoyed issue 1 cant wait to check out issue 2


Marvel Zombie #1 Cover B Variant In-Hyuk Lee Cover – Sweet Tales of The Zombie homage, Anthony talked about this one on his Spec of the week video that’s when it caught my eye


Red Sonja Vol 7 #22 Cover F Incentive Dave Bullock Virgin Cover – this one is weird.. but not in a bad way weird…very unique style I dig it


Source #1 Cover C Variant Glow-In-The-Dark Cover – Scout comics back on the list again with a sweet glow in the dark variant I do believe it’s a 1:20 still available on the website as well


Unstoppable Wasp Vol 2 #1 Cover D Incentive Yasmine Putri Variant Cover – I don’t know many stores that will order enough to qualify for this variant. I’m pretty sure this will be a ghost. None up on eBay but did have one sale of $60 . Happy hunting this beautiful cover is my VARIANT PICK OF THE WEEK

Poyo’s Spec and Drek for October 17th, 2018

Once again another Wednesday is upon us and this is where little ‘ol me tells you what I’m spec’ing on and dreking on.

This week is exciting for new small publisher and indie books, not so much going on with the big two. Cemetery Beach which is a new favorite from Image is out that I’ve been looking forward to but it wasn’t my top pick, but it’s a top read.

DC/Vertigo Pick

I think we have a new hit artist coming out of DC on our hands. We saw his Wonder Woman And Justice League Dark Witching Hour #1 Cover B cover heat up a bit, still selling almost double cover price after two weeks.

This week Riccardo Federici brings us a regular cover A with Aquaman #41.

Is it me or does his style kind of resemble a bit of Esad Ribic in it? Which is not a bad thing, I love Esad Ribic’s art work. Not only was it Jason Aaron’s writing that made me a Thor fan but it was Ribic’s artwork I fell in love with.

Leave it to DC to get people to buy their books based on cover art. I don’t hear many people talking about the stories within but we sure do talk a lot about their covers.

Move over Middleton, I prefer Federici’s cover this week over yours. Awesome A beats Killer B this week.

Marvel Pick

I will admit one thing, I hate every single cover for this new book. They’ve done Shuri zero justice in that department.

With that out of the way, it’s still my pick for Marvel this week which goes to her first standalone series Shuri #1.

I must admit, I really dug her character in the Black Panther movie so I’m rooting this book is a great read and hopefully the interior artwork is much better than the exterior covers we’ve seen.

Shuri’s first appearance is in Black Panther #2 (2005) and is still pretty affordable. With her rising popularity, the time to buy might be now before these perhaps continue to go up as I think Marvel has continued future plans for this character.

Indie Pick

Perhaps this next pick is because I’m an original Shrek fan. But this is no goofy Ogre movie or story.

My indie pick goes to Ogre #1.

From Source Point Press which has seen a few hits come out from the press lately, these are small print run books and most shops don’t even bother ordering them.

This one caught my attention though as a definite check out book if done right and if the artwork is good.

A reclusive beast sits locked in a castle prison cell with the ghost of the corpse he is chained to. And now he must decide if he’ll join in on an escape plan that could set him on an adventure he’s not prepared to embark upon.

Also be on the lookout for You Can Try Again One Shot from Olivia Walch. She’s does a popular online webcomic http://imogenquest.net but also is a really smart gal, with a PHd in Mathematics. So it’s definitely a book I want to check out.

Small Publisher Pick

Scout Comics is a comic force to be reckon’d with now. They made some recent announcements for the publisher at NYCC and with a slew of books optioned like The Mall and Long Lost, everyone should keep an eye on their new books and even their existing books.

The Source #1 is one of those books. Already sold out at most online retailers. Written by History Channel’s Knightfall writer Don Handfield, that’s already one step in the door to getting a media option in my opinion.

The Source is the story of Bennett Miller, a high school teacher in East St Louis who still lives with his grandmother. One day Bennett is approached after his class by a mysterious old woman, Ms. Putnam, who tells him that magic is real… and he’s the one prophesied to return it to humanity. The only problem, it’s been outlawed for thousands of years by the ancient Few, a powerful sect who hoard it to prolong their own lives and will stop at nothing to keep it secret. Based on true history, real legends, and actual folklore and myths.

 


Now on with the dreaded “avoid” pick, every writer and artist worst nightmare when it comes to selling their hard work.

I really don’t like picking on him but he just makes it so easy. This weeks avoid pick goes out to X-Men Black Mystique #1 regular cover A by J. Scott Campbell.

Seriously, why do we keep getting the same cover, over and over and over and over again. What does everyone seem to be drawn to with his skimpy girl cover art? I really want to know. If you’re a Campbell fan and particularly seek out his Mary Jane covers, why do you like his artwork?

This new cover makes Mystique look like she’s got an upside pear as a head wearing an orange wig in the same pose we’ve seen a million other times by Campbell. I actually enjoy Campbell’s other work, like the NYCC Return of Wolverine cover art. We need more of that, less of Mary Jane.

The other avoid which I hope is not too late as most shops were putting these out on Saturday October 13th is all those damn Walking Dead Anniversary variants in blind poly bags. Walking Dead is total garbage now when it comes to speculative value. If you plan to throw your money away on those, just send that money to me. I’ll send ya a one of a kind Poyo sketch in return, maybe even on a Walking Dead blank variant that I’m sitting on.

Comic Picks of the Week for Delivery 10/17/18

Each week, hundreds of new comics hit the stands, each with potential. Some live up to that potential. We pick the ones we think have the best shot at heating up. Here are our picks of the week for delivery 10/17/18:

 

Returning Favorites
Cemetery Beach #2 Impact Variant – This is an Homage to Hellboy, a book I love. I liked the first issue of Cemetery Beach so will be picking this one up too.

Killer B’s
Aquaman #41 Joshua Middleton Cover – limited to one per person at Midtown and selling out at other online stores. Middleton’s Mera covers are pretty popular. Selling well on eBay but at cover.

Batman #57 Francesco Mattina Cover – Sold out at Midtown already, great looking cover. Great PC book. Selling well on eBay but at cover.

Harley Quinn #52 Frank Cho Cover – Frank’s covers on Harley have been great. Making an awesome set.

New Image #1
Exorsisters #1 – The Ashcan from NYCC have been doing well. Giselle Legace has a nice following on line so this one could do well. The 1:25 has sold for $32.99 with free shipping.

New Marvel #1 Worth Looking At
Shuri #1 – Black Panther’s sister gets her own book. Six covers on this one so they are really pushing this book. Spoilers coming….

Venom Annual #1 – Venom’s first annual. Done by Donny Cates, I am looking froward with this one. Bill Sienkiewicz Variant has a variant for this one that I am digging.

Indie Gems
The Mall #2 – James Haick and Don Handfield’s The Mall, which got optioned for tv, comes out this week. It is sold out at Midtown.

Indie Pick of the Week
The Source #1 – Don Handfield, The Mall and The Rift. There are three covers on this one including a glow in the dark cover. Glow-In-The-Dark Cover  limited to 1:20 is doing well on sales.

Pick of the Week
Marvel Zombie #1 – especially the B cover which Tales of the Zombie #1 homages. This book is done by the creative team behind Ice Cream Man, Maxwell Prince and Stefano Raffaele. I really think this one shot may be under-ordered, and done by a hot creative team, could be a good long term pick.

That’s it for this week. Let us know what you are spec-ing on. And in case you missed it, here is our New Comic Spec Review for 10/17/18

Eminem Performs Venom On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Eminem Performs Venom On Jimmy Kimmel Live

The real Slim Shady recently stood up and performed his new song “Venom” at The Empire State Building and it was shown on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Eminem of course wrote the song for the soundtrack of the Sony film of the same name that stars Tom Hardy which is currently on it’s way to being a huge success for the studio.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms: 5 TV Spots and 2 Featurettes

Disney has two big productions coming out in November and the first one is their reimagining of the Nutcracker called The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. They have released a bunch of featurettes that tease everything from the dancing we’ll be seeing to the sheer amount of details that was put into all of the sets and costumes.

Next we have a bunch of TV spots that tease some new footage from the movie and give us some clues about what changes this version is going to make to the story.

Out of all of Disney’s movies coming out this year this is the one that people seem to be the most unsure of. Lots of people go to see the ballet every Christmas but does that mean there is an audience for a movie?

Summary: All Clara wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key-which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, directed by Lasse Hallström, stars Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Matthew Macfadyen, Helen Mirren, and Eugenio Derbez. It will be released on November 2nd.

More DC Comics Move From 20 to 22 Pages For $3.99 With Aquaman and Justice League Joining In

Back in June, Bleeding Cool scooped the news that, at the DC Writers Summit, writers were told that DC Comics was returning to 22 pages for $3.99 rather than the 20 pages that had become standard for that price point.

No one else reported or rereported that news. Well, there hadn’t been a press release or anything.

At the time we noted that Man Of Steel had been running 22-page stories at $3.99 with two additional pages per issue by Jason Fabok, but the standard was still twenty pages.

Yesterday we noted that DC Comics was retiring the $2.99 price point for their superhero titles, with the last New Age Of Heroes titles giving up that price at the end of December/beginning of January.

And as of tomorrow, the number of comics with 22 pages for $3.99 has jumped. Bleeding Cool has checked in with the people who know.

Justice League Dark has been running at that price point since publication and tomorrow’s #4 is the same, is 22 pages for $3.99. Teen Titans has also been running at 22 pages for $3.99 and that continues as well with #23.

But Aquaman #40 was 20 pages. And tomorrow’s Aquaman #41 is 22 pages

And Justice League #8 and #9 were 20 pages. But Justice League #10 is 22 pages

It’s not universal, not yet. Nightwing #51, Batman #57, Harley Quinn #52 are all 20 pages for $3.99, I am told.

But odds are they will be switching too…

Count your comics pages tomorrow and let me know what else you discover.

Patrick Wilson And Vera Farmiga To Return As The Warrens In Annabelle 3

Patrick Wilson And Vera Farmiga To Return As The Warrens In Annabelle 3

Ed and Lorraine Warren are characters that first graced the silver screen in the first Conjuring film. Since then, they’ve only appeared in its sequel The Conjuring 2, even though all of these stories are theoretically based on the Warren case files. Well, luckily, it looks like their involvement in the spin-off films will be extended.

R.I.P. ResurrXion? Weapon X Missing from Marvel’s January Solicits

It looks like another series is a victim of Marvel’s patented stealth cancellation. Like X-Men Red, which is missing from Marvel’s January solicits, there is no listing for Weapon X that month. And with an X-Force series relaunching in December, perhaps there’s no place in the Marvel Mutantverse for Sabretooth’s band of rogues and misfits anymore.

Here’s what the solicitation for December’s Weapon X tells us.

WEAPON X #27
GREG PAK & FRED VAN LENTE (w)
LUCA PIZZARI (A)
Cover by RAHZZAH
WEAPONS OF SELF-DESTRUCTION!
• Two roads diverged in a blood-soaked wood. For a time, Sabretooth took the one less traveled. In this issue, he pays for it.
• Everything changes here.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

Well, being canceled would definitely be a change.

So is this really the end for Weapon X? If so, it would be the end of an era, with Weapon X joining X-Men Blue, X-Men Gold, Astonishing X-Men, Cable, Generation X, Old Man Logan, Jean Grey, All-New Wolverine, and Iceman (though revived as a mini) as the last known canceled title from Marvel’s ResurrXion relaunch era. Oh, and then there’s the long-dead Inhumans titles: Royals, Black Bolt, and Secret Warriors. But nobody cares about the Inhumans.

So how will it happen? Is the team splitting up? If so, who gets the pet tiger? Or is someone getting killed off? Sabretooth?

The only logical thing to do here is post your speculation in the comments, so get to it. For now, we’ll remember Weapon X through our Improbable Previews tribute…

RIP, Weapon X, the last survivor of the ResurrXion era.

Finally, Chuck Austen’s Early X-Men Work Returns to Print at Marvel

One of the X-Men’s most memorable runs is finally returning to print at Marvel in January. That’s right, Chuck Austen’s run on Uncanny X-Men is getting collected in the X-Men: Unstoppable TPB, collecting Uncanny X-Men #410-424 and X-Men Unlimited #44-45.

It doesn’t contain cream of the crop classic stories like Juggernaut hooking up with She-Hulk, She Lies With Angels, or The Draco… but you gotta lay the groundwork for that stuff first, you know? Besides if you want creepy sex scenes, you can always pick up the first volume of the JMS Amazing Spider-Man omnibus and see Gwen Stacy get it on with Norman Osborn.

In any case, Chuck Austen’s X-Men is coming back, and hopefully this is the first of many. Look for it in stores in January, and check out Marvel’s full solicitations here.

X-MEN: UNSTOPPABLE TPB
Written by CHUCK AUSTEN
Penciled by RON GARNEY, SEAN PHILLIPS,
KIA ASAMIYA, ROMANO MOLENAAR & POP MHAN

The unstoppable Juggernaut has joined the X-Men! When Cain Marko summons the X-Men to help his criminal partner Black Tom Cassidy, he surprises everyone — including himself — by accepting his hated stepbrother Professor X’s offer of friendship! And he’s not the only new face at the Xavier Institute as Northstar and Husk join the teaching staff, troubled young Sammy Paré enrolls at the school and the comatose Havok is found — with a lovesick caretaker in tow! As the X-Men struggle with internal turmoil and Sammy bonds with Juggernaut, the team must face threats like Maximus Lobo, Alpha Flight and the Church of Humanity — who commit an act of savagery that shocks the X-Men to the core! Plus: Iceman and Archangel deal with startling secondary mutations — and an X-Man proposes! Collecting UNCANNY X-MEN (1981) #410-424 and X-MEN UNLIMITED (1993) #44-45.

Is Ms. Marvel Cancelled? G. Willow Wilson Says It’s Just Taking a “Skip Month”

Fans of Ms. Marvel might have be a bit concerned upon seeing Marvel’s January solicitations, because there’s no new issue of Ms. Marvel to be found. Writer G. Willow Wilson is writing Wonder Woman over at rival DC Comics, which could lead some fans to wonder whether she’s leaving the superhero she co-created at Marvel behind.

But fear not, true believers! Asked on Twitter, Wilson revealed that the book is taking a “skip” month to compensate for her being “out of commission” in September:

So presumably Ms. Marvel will return good as new in February. Until then, fans will have to tide themselves over with December’s Ms. Marvel #37.

How The Better Call Saul Writers Nearly Wrote Themselves Into A Corner This Past Season

How The Better Call Saul Writers Nearly Wrote Themselves Into A Corner This Past Season

I don’t care what anybody says. Better Call Saul has proven itself to be a STRONGER series than Breaking Bad. It’s maintained its pacing as a slow burn of a show but has also managed to send Jimmy McGill down a believable path of corruption so that when we see him in Breaking Bad, we buy his personality.

Chuck Wendig’s Shadow of Vader Not Solicited for January… Has It Been Canceled Completely?

We’re all well aware of Marvel’s firing of Chuck Wendig off the Star Wars: Shadow of Vader mini-series, which Wendig says was “Because of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring. Seriously, that’s what Mark [Paniccia], the editor said. It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part.” The move was especially jarring, not just because Marvel has seemingly never exercised any control over their freelancers or employees social media behavior before, but also because the series had just been announced at New York Comic Con the week before.

And in that announcement, as Bleeding Cool reported, the book was set to launch in January. According to Wendig, he was fired from issues 4 and 5 of the mini-series, and would presumably be replaced. However, Marvel’s January solicitations have been released and there’s no sign of Shadow of Vader. Is Marvel delaying the series until they can find someone willing to replace Wendig for the final two issues? Or have they decided it’s not worth the trouble to remind people of the firing at all and shelved it entirely?

We reached out to Marvel for comment, but have received no reply as of press time.

Dan Slott Applies to Trademark a Comic Book Called ‘Future Me’

Comic book writer Dan Slott, currently working on Spider-Geddon, Tony Stark: Iron Man and Fantastic Four, has registered an application for a trademark for the term ‘Future Me’.

Using the well known comic book industry lawyer Michael L. Lovitz of Lovitz IP Law in Hollywood, the registration has been applied to cover ‘Downloadable comic books, comic strips and graphic novels via the internet and wireless devices…  Comic books; Comic magazines; Comics; Graphic novels’

I spoke to Dan Slott and while he naturally wouldn’t confirm anything else about it, he did confirm that he had trademarked the term.

From this, I would assume that Dan Slott is to write a creator-owned comic book called Future Me, hence the trademark claim. It suggests a high concept comic book concerning time travel, meeting your future self and all the comedy hijinks that may ensue. Dan has written quite a lot of time travel stories in comics and is a keen fan of Doctor Who, a character who regular meets their future selves, so this would seem to fit into that spirit. But this is all my own assumption of course, no more.

Either way, it’s enough for me to bin my own nebulous plans for a comic that I had mostly written the first issue of, Your Future Husband, a love triangle between two people (seriously). Can’t compete with The Slott…

Details On The ‘King-Size’ Kirby Is Fantastic Hardcover From Marvel Comics – The First of Many

Big is beautiful. Big is better. Less is not more, by definition, less is less. more is more. It was simple when you thought about it. And someone at Marvel did. Thanks to the January solicitations, we now know what is inside that monstrous new oversized hardcover coming from Marvel in 2019, Kirby Is… Fantastic.

And it’s not just a sequel to the previous oversized Kirby Behold… Galactus, but a series of two foot tall Kirby hardcovers covering the man’s work at Marvel Comics – and thicker than the Galactus volume. And the first volume of this run deals with his Fantastic Four work.

And we have the name for this format as well now, The King-Size, named after Jack ‘The King’ Kirby. I hope Scott Dunbier is feeling jealous right now. And maybe inspired…

Creators BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS Return CRIMINAL With New Monthly Series

For all you Criminal or Brubaker Phillips team-up fans out there, this is some good news. You can’t go wrong with a good Brubaker and Phillips comic series.

Image Press Release Announcement:

Hot off the critically acclaimed, bestselling series Kill or Be Killed and breakout hit original graphic novel My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies, crime comic masters Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips return to their beloved, iconic Criminal series. The multiple Eisner award-winning CRIMINAL will return as an all-new monthly from Image Comics in January 2019.

“CRIMINAL was where Sean and I really established our brand as a team, and while writing MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES (which takes place in the CRIMINAL world), it just suddenly felt like the perfect time to bring it back to the monthly comic shelves. But this time I wanted it to be different—not just serialized graphic novels, but also single-issue stories and even the odd two-issue story sometimes,” said Brubaker. “I love the elasticity that CRIMINAL allows me—because this world we’ve created gives me a place to tell any kind of crime story and to focus on different characters, both old and new—and I want to really embrace the monthly comics format, and try to create a series where readers will never know what’s coming next from issue to issue.”

CRIMINAL #1 will debut as a double-sized issue, featuring the return of Teeg Lawless, whose teenage son is causing him trouble that he may not be able to fight his way out of, for the first time in his violence-fueled life.

Phillips added: “It’s a pleasure to return to the world of CRIMINAL with new stories of familiar characters and new characters too. I’m back to drawing on paper after a few years drawing THE FADE OUT and KILL OR BE KILLED digitally, so it’s also a welcome return to inky fingers and white-out.”

A perfect introduction for readers to the dark and exciting world of CRIMINAL, this new series will also include back-page articles and illustrations to bring readers more fully into the noir experience.

CRIMINAL #1 (Diamond Code NOV180021) will be available on Wednesday, January 9th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 10th.

CRIMINAL #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.

About Ed Brubaker:
Ed Brubaker is one of the most acclaimed writers in comics, winning five best writer Eisner and Harvey Awards in the last 10 years. His bestselling work with Sean Phillips on Criminal, Incognito, Fatale, and The Fade Out has been translated around the world to great acclaim, and Marvel’s movies featuring his co-creation, The Winter Soldier, have all been international blockbusters. He works in comics, film, and television, most recently as a writer on HBO’s hit series Westworld, co-creator of Too Old to Die Young with Nicolas Winding Refn for Amazon Studios, and co-creator with Sean Phillips on MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES. Brubaker will reteam with Sean Phillips and return to the multiple Eisner Award-winning series, CRIMINAL with all new monthly issues from Image Comics in January 2019.

About Sean Phillips:
Drawing comics professionally since the age of 15, Eisner Award-winning Sean Phillips has worked for all the major comics publishers. Since drawing Sleeper, Hellblazer, Batman, X-Men, Marvel Zombies, and Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, Sean has concentrated on creator-owned books including CRIMINAL, INCOGNITO, Seven Psychopaths, FATALE, THE FADE OUT, and most recently co-created with Ed Brubaker: MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN JUNKIES. Phillips will reteam with Ed Brubaker and return to the multiple Eisner Award-winning series, CRIMINAL with all-new monthly issues from Image Comics in January 2019.

The Pentagon Unleashes Gerard Butler on the Washington Press Corps

Washington reporters have been complaining for months about being frozen out (as they see it) by the Pentagon on all topics military. Amid forces engaged in the Middle East and tension in the South China Sea, the press is bristling that there’s never anyone at the Pentagon podium available or willing to give them the facts and answer their questions. Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White hasn’t held a press conference with reporters since May.

Well, the fourth estate’s cries were not for naught as on Monday, Secretary of State Jim Mattis granted the reporters an audience with–

Gerard Butler.

Butler (300, Olympus has Fallen) was on hand to discuss his upcoming film Hunter Killer. In the film, Butler leads a group of Navy SEALS in an effort to avoid global war by rescuing the President of Russia, no doubt making the film a favorite of the President’s and perhaps a model of future foreign policy.

Stepping into the role of statesman at the Defense Department podium, the Scottish Butler shared that a promotional event in Riyadh had been scrapped in light of the recent disappearance and presumed murder of Washington Post reporter and Saudi Arabian dissident Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudis. Butler noted that even though he “felt very badly for the film company,” they decided it might not be the most opportune time for a media event.

“It just didn’t seem like a situation that we would want to get into.”

While reporters might be forgiven for wondering if Butler’s appearance was simply a way for the administration to troll them, the presser did go smoothly. Flanked by Navy “advisors,” Butler heaped praise on the submarine crew he had traveled with during production, citing the “brilliance and the humility of the sailors I worked with.” He also referred to the submarine itself as “like an alien planet, but just fascinating.”

On the other hand, maybe it was an audition for another role entirely. It’s an open secret in Washington circles that Secretary Mattis is on borrowed time at the post. The same President Trump, who thought Omarosa Maginault was a good fit for the West Wing might well like to see more of this from our armed forces.

Hunter Killer is set to hit theaters on October 26th, 2018.
