Dynamite Entertainment Delivers All-New James Bond Origin Story http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/dynamite-entertainment-delivers-all-new-james-bond-origin-story/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/dynamite-entertainment-delivers-all-new-james-bond-origin-story/#respond Wed, 20 Jun 2018 11:00:57 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=171343 Jeff Parker Pens New Series With Artwork by Bob Q Revealing James Bond’s World War II History

June 19, 2018, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment and Ian Fleming Publications Ltd. are pleased to announce this fall’s biggest series in James Bond Origin! Author Jeff Parker (Suicide Squad, Future Quest, Thunderbolts, Batman ‘66) and artist Bob Q (The Green Hornet) will kick off the ongoing definitive account of James Bond’s exploits during World War II!

Hitting stands in September, James Bond Origin takes readers back to March 1941. Seventeen-year-old James Bond is a restless student in Scotland, an orphan, eager to strike out and make his mark on the world. But a visit by an old family friend coincides with The Clydebank Blitz, the most devastating German attack on Scotland during the War! James will fight through hell to survive, coming out the other side determined to make a difference.

“It’s a weighty challenge to reverse-engineer this icon into a young man on a life’s journey of danger, but Nate Cosby paired me up with Bob Q, who not only brings the gravitas of war in 1941 Europe but nails the promising hero in his youth,” stated writer Jeff Parker.  “James doesn’t have the vast experience of a double-O agent yet, but he’s tenacious and a lightning-quick study. Bob and I work to show the full force of Bond’s spirit.”

In 2014, Dynamite Entertainment made headlines across the comics industry and beyond with the news that the New Jersey publisher had secured the license from Ian Fleming Publications Ltd to produce the first James Bond comics in 20 years. The first series, Vargr, written by Transmetropolitan writer Warren Ellis and artist Jason Masters, launched the following year to widespread critical acclaim and was a breakout success in the comics specialty market.

James Bond has consistently been one of our strongest brands, both in talent and in history,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “It’s all been a culmination to get to tell this story in comics.”

The debut issue of James Bond Origin features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice! The cover artwork features the talents of John Cassaday (The Lone Ranger), David Mack (Kabuki), Kev Walker (Thunderbolts), Gene Ha (Top 10), Ibrahim Moustafa (High Crimes) and Bob Q. & Jordan Boyd (The Green Hornet ’66 Meets The Spirit), respectively.

Dynamite is offering comic store retailers the opportunity to put their store name on a James Bond Origin #1 to promote the launch of this long-awaited series. This “shared retailer exclusive” will receive the cover art by Bob Q., plus the store logo on the cover! Additionally, a limited variant in “Black & White,” “Virgin Art,” and “Blood Red Line Art” formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.

James Bond Origin #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ July 2018 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September 2018. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of James Bond Origin #1 with their local comic book retailers. James Bond Origin #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

DCSWCC ANNOUNCES EIGHTH CHARITY PIN http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/dcswcc-announces-eighth-charity-pin/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/dcswcc-announces-eighth-charity-pin/#respond Wed, 20 Jun 2018 06:00:22 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=171311
The Washington DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) wishes to announce their eighth biannual charity lapel pin.  The 2018 pin features Luke in his black Jedi garb holding a glimmering green lightsaber in the shape of the club’s signature Washington Monument.  Eighth in the series of high-quality pins, and officially licensed by Lucasfilm Ltd., each pin is individually stamped and numbered – only 500 will ever be made!
All proceeds benefit the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (www.taps.org).  TAPS offers compassionate care to all those grieving the death of a loved one who served in the United States Armed Forces.  Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope 24 hours a day, seven days a week through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.  This is a most fitting charity tribute for DCSWCC, because in February the club lost a beloved friend, long-time club officer and treasurer, Luke Jedi focus collector, and retired U.S. Navy Lieutenant Bob Martinazzi.
DCSWCC has a rich history of supporting children’s charities in the Washington DC region.  Their other charity pins featured Yoda, Chewbacca, the animated Boba Fett, Luke on his tauntaun, R2-D2, Commander Cody, and BB-8, and have raised over $34,000 for organizations including Children’s National Medical Center, The Children’s Inn at NIH, and Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation.
To order your pins, visit http://store.dcswcc.org today!
DCSWCC is one of the oldest, largest, and most active collecting clubs in America, with about 50 members.  The club meets monthly and holds special events throughout the year such as socials, picnics, and “Roadshow” appraisal events.  For more information, visit the club website at http://www.dcswcc.club

Dynamite Entertainment to Publish Art of Troma! http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/dynamite-entertainment-to-publish-art-of-troma/ http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/dynamite-entertainment-to-publish-art-of-troma/#respond Wed, 20 Jun 2018 05:00:18 +0000 http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/?p=171322 A Celebration of the Longest-Lasting Independent Film Company That STILL Hasn’t Made a Hit!

June 19, 2018, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite has partnered with Troma Entertainment, the original media disruptor, and longest-lasting independent film company, to deliver an art book not for the faint of heart hitting shelves in September with The Art of Troma!

Written by New York Times Bestselling author and Troma aficionado Fred Van Lente (Archer & Armstrong, Cowboys and Aliens), this incredible 256-page collection features never-before-seen film stills, rare posters, candid interviews, and buckets and buckets and BUCKETS of fake blood.

“I had a really terrific time delving into the history of one of the richest stories in all of independent American movies. The book has turned out spectacularly, thanks to the incredible work of designer Jon Adams,” remarked author Fred Van Lente. “None of it would have been possible without Lloyd Kaufman, Michael Herz and the Troma staff opening up their forty-year-plus archive to us, so big thanks to them. This book is a juicy distillation of a studio that’s entertained its fans and pissed-off establishment types for decades.”

For over forty years, Troma Studios has blazed its own bloody, slime-covered trail, making movies their own damn way. From The Toxic Avenger to The Class Of Nuke ‘Em High to Poultrygeist to Tromeo And Juliet, Lloyd Kaufman never compromised, waving his independent freak-flag freely, and helped jumpstart the careers of luminaries such as James Gunn, Trey Parker, Eli Roth, Oliver Stone and countless others.

“This has been an incredibly fun project to work on. I have a lot of respect for everything they’ve been able to do over the years,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. “They’ve had so many great talents come out of their stable throughout their history as the biggest cult filmmakers in the world, they’re finally getting their due.”

 

The Art of Troma will hit shelves in both hardcover and limited editions.  The limited version of the hardcover book comes in a VHS-themed slipcase and features both a print signed by Lloyd Kaufman and a supplemental book featuring art from Troma fans.

 

The Art of Troma and The Art of Troma Limited Edition will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ July 2018 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September 2018. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of The Art of Troma with their local comic book retailers.

About Troma
Established in 1974 by Yale friends Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, Troma Entertainment is arguably the longest-running independent movie studio in North America, and it’s one of the very few genuine brand names in the industry. World famous for movie classics like Kaufman’s “The Toxic Avenger”, Trey Parker’s “Cannibal, the Musical”, “Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead”, “Class of Nuke ’em High”, Charles Kaufman’s “Mother’s Day” and “Tromeo & Juliet”, Troma’s seminal films are now being remade as big budget mainstream productions by the likes of Brett Ratner, Richard Saperstein, Akiva Goldsman and Steven Pink. Early work of many of today’s luminaries can be found in Troma’s library of 1000 films, cartoons, TV shows and shorts. Jenna Fischer, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Costner, Fergie, Vincent D’Onofrio, Samuel L. Jackson, James Gunn and Eli Roth are just a few. Troma’s latest in-house productions are “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volumes 1 & 2”. Troma’s Blu-rays, DVDs, books, t-shirts and movie merchandise can be purchased at Tromashop.
