From the dawn of creation there have been storytellers spinning timeless fables and folktales. Call them historians, poets, philosophers, or charlatans, it was their fanciful re-tellings of the age of wonder that kept children enwrapped in fantasy and immersed in imagination. But over the last two centuries something dark has been devouring the storytellers and even the stories themselves, leaving children with dulled imaginations and no will to believe in giant killers or wicked witches.
Abby was one of those children and is now a young woman who still lives only in the concrete reality of her professional ambitions. Raised by a mother who had no time for "childish pursuits," she grew up too fast and locked her fertile imagination away forever. But Abby's orderly world comes crashing down upon her when a crazy old man who believes himself to be the real Baron Munchausen leads her into a festering fantasy world facing villainous henchmen, zombified fairytale creatures, and the most unlikely wickedest witch of them all.
Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents an event that reshapes how we look at fables and the imagination! Written by James Kuhoric (Dead Irons/Freddy vs Jason vs Ash), illustrated by Grant Bond (Igor/Trick R Treat), and art directed by Nick Bradshaw (Danger Girl/Army of Darkness). http://tinyurl.com/yjrev3a
When a trend gets big enough, all the mainstream media eventually take a look at it! CNN's Breeanna Hare investigated various comic-to-film adaptations and spoke to a few industry figures for comment -- most prominently, Top Shelf publisher Chris Staros! In the wake of Touchstone's blockbuster Surrogates film and our recent capital investment / film production deal, Top Shelf is a prominent example of how publishers can respond to Hollywood's interest in graphic novels, without dashing for the quick buck or creating books as a means to an end. Our mission is to publish great books, and we welcome the chance to work with talented filmmakers to adapt those books -- with creator approval -- and introduce a wider audience to the comics that are and always will be our focus.

I bought Portland Noir last year at San Diego because there's a Jamie Rich/Joëlle Jones story in it (and Rich signed it for me), but I also love Portland, as I've mentioned before, so this is a fun book. I've only read a couple of stories, but so far [...] http://tinyurl.com/yfom97r
Marvel released their first Secret Avengers promo, and it's pretty clearly Beast (click to enlarge).
Now it makes you wonder what Secret Avengers will be (great name, by the way). Ed Brubaker and Mike Deodato will be the creative team, so I'm guessing it almost certainly will be the replacement for Dark [...] http://tinyurl.com/yf7n59d
