Dynamite teams up with Green Hornet and Bionic Man writer Kevin Smith to bring his latest horror comedy to comics with the release of Yoga Hosers, which will be given out to attendees of this week’s Sundance Film Festival!

“Nick and the Dynamite folks have made a home for me at their shop over the years. So when I thought about launching SModComics, he was my first call. I look forward to turning lots of material from my podcasts and movies into 4-color extensions of what we do in other media. And I’m happy to do it with Dynamite – the Jersey-based comics giant!” states Writer/Director Kevin Smith.

“The relationship we have with Kevin is incredibly rewarding. His resume speaks for itself, as he has reinvigorated great comic characters like Daredevil and Green Arrow at Marvel and DC respectively, along with Green Hornet and Six Million Dollar Man here at Dynamite,” states CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “His talent brings fans to the industry, and when he asked if we would be a part of this event, of course we said yes!”

This special prequel comic to the upcoming film features an original story by Yoga Hosers writer/director Kevin Smith himself, with art by Jeff Quigley, and is available exclusively at the film’s premiere on Sunday January 24 at the Sundance Film Festival!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
