The Complete Junior And Sunny Press Release

The Complete Junior And Sunny
Catches Eyes This December
Al Feldstein’s Racy Cult Classic Collected!
San Diego, CA (September 11, 2014) – IDW Publishing is proud to announce the release of The Complete Junior and Sunny, which presents the full run of these historic comics created, written, and illustrated by the legendary E.C. Comics artist/writer/editor Al Feldstein.
Imagine a young Betty Page type meeting up with some late-1940s, typical-teenage types (a la Archie), and you will get an idea of what is to be found in The Complete Junior and Sunny. Along with an in-depth Introduction by Grant Geissman, the book also presents the issue of Meet Corliss Archer that Feldstein also produced for the notorious Victor Fox, of Fox Feature Publications.
Done between 1947 and 1948 in the period right before he moved to E.C. Comics, Feldstein’s bold artwork and salacious figures are on full display, providing a wonderfully guilty pleasure. Long considered to be prime examples of late 1940s “headlight” and “Good Girl” art comics, issues of Junior and Sunny have been quite difficult to find and very expensive to obtain. Until now!
rrrrrw
“Although the stories are basically charming, ‘typical teenage’ period pieces, Feldstein’s artwork for them often pushes the envelope for the time,” says Geissman. “With titillating covers and often-suggestive images in the stories themselves, it’s probably a good thing that Dr. Fredric Wertham never found out about Junior and Sunny!” Seduction of the innocent, indeed!Look for the complete collection this December!

BURBANK, Calif. (September 12, 2014) — Warner Bros. Television makes another exciting return to New York Comic Con (NYCC) with three new eagerly anticipated series, including Gotham (Mondays, 8/7c on FOX), Forever (Tuesdays, 10/9c on ABC), and Constantine (Fridays 10/9c, on NBC), in addition to returning hits The Following (Midseason on FOX) and Person of Interest (Tuesdays, 10/9c on CBS).

WARNER BROS. TELEVISION SCREENINGS

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9 • MAIN STAGE • 8:30 p.m.

John Constantine is a man waging war against the forces of darkness — from both within himself and the outside world. An irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert, he’s an experienced exorcist and demonologist with an extensive list of supernatural contacts, each with their own paranormal talents and abilities. Following the aftermath of a tragic incident, Constantine has voluntarily checked himself into an asylum and sworn off investigating matters of the supernatural. But with dark forces gathering power in the world, he reluctantly resumes his old life — allying himself with Manny, a rogue warrior angel; Zed, a psychic with a dark past; and Chas, Constantine’s giant childhood protector — and only friend who’s managed to stay alive Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment, Constantine reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine, a morally challenged character who doesn’t come down on the side of either good or evil … but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond. The series stars Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior), Angélica Celaya (Dallas), Charles Halford (True Detective) and Harold Perrineau (Lost) and and is executive produced by Daniel Cerone (Dexter), David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight trilogy) and Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica). From Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Warner Bros. Television, Constantine will air Fridays at 10/9c on NBC, premiering October 24th.

Season one of The 100 saw the human race return, after a 97-year exile in space, to a wildly transformed Earth…only to discover that the human race had never truly left. Clarke found herself forced to lead a band of disposable juvenile delinquents as they faced death at every turn: from a world transformed by radiation, from the fierce Grounders who somehow managed to survive in it, and, perhaps worst of all, from themselves. Meanwhile, as The 100 fought for their lives on the ground, The Ark’s situation was no better. Both on the ground and in space, the final episodes revealed the true desperation of their plight, as our heroes risked everything just to stay alive. Noble sacrifices and heartbreaking choices changed everyone forever, and left them scattered to the wind at season’s end. The epic second season picks up with the group still scattered and desperate to be reunited. As members of The 100 and new arrivals from the Ark stake out their place in a dangerous and beautiful new world, they are confronted with the physical peril and moral dilemmas that come with reforging society. What kind of life will they build? And what will it cost them? This season’s quest will challenge them more than anything that’s come before. Hearts will be broken. Lives will be lost. Heroes will be born. From Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television, The 100 returns Wednesday, October 22 at 9/8c on The CW.

BANG BANG BABY
from Rob, September 10th, 2014 6:22 pm, TV & Movie News

BANG BANG BABY

When you live too much in your fantasies, reality begins to look like a nightmare…

BANG BANG BABY, developed by Jeffrey St. Jules in the Cannes Film Festival’s Cinéfondation, is an otherworldly musical about Stepphy (Jane Levy), who is trapped in the sleepy 1960′s town of Lonely Arms taking care of her alcoholic father (Peter Stormare).  Stepphy dreams of escaping to a better life on the stage and screen, and when rock star Bobby Shore’s (Justin Chatwin) car breaks down in Lonely Arms, it seems her impossible dream might actually be coming true. But when Fabian (David Reale), the town creep, tells Stepphy that the local chemical factory is leaking dangerous purple fumes that can cause human mutations, Stepphy becomes obsessed with hiding these dark secrets from Bobby until they can escape together and make all of her fantasies a reality.

This unique and stylized film stars Jane Levy (EVIL DEAD, SUBURGATORY) in a defining turn as Stepphy, a small town girl who’s caught between her big dreams of stardom and her controlling father, portrayed by Peter Stormare (FARGO, 22 JUMP STREET).  Justin Chatwin (SHAMELESS, WAR OF THE WORLDS) plays dreamy rock star Bobby Shore who promises to whisk Stepphy away.

The film is Produced by Daniel Bekerman (THE HUSBAND, YOU ARE HERE), Jonathan Bronfman (RACE,EXTRATERRESTRIAL), and Don Allan of Revolver Films. The Executive Produces are Christina Piovesan (LIFE, THE WHISTLEBLOWER, AMRIKA), Lon Molnar, Mark Gingras, and Ethan Lazar. It is a Scythia Films/JoBro Production with the participation of Telefilm Canada and The Harold Greenberg Fund.

International Bestselling Author James Frey Launches His Next Book Series
from Rob, September 10th, 2014 5:38 pm, nycc 2014

International Bestselling Author James Frey Launches His Next Book Series

with John Hanke, VP of Google’s Niantic Labs, and a Musical Event:

 

James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and DJ and Radio Personality Pete Tong to Perform at the “Endgame” Launch Party at Hammerstein Ballroom During ReedPop’s New York Super Week

 

New York, NY (September 10, 2014)—On October 7, 2014 HarperCollins Publishers and New York Super Week will host a concert event to celebrate the release of ENDGAME: The Calling, the book at the center of an immersive media project conceived by international bestselling author James Frey. Taking place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, the event will include a musical performance by world-renown DJ James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and DJ & iconic Radio Broadcaster Pete Tong MBE, dubbed the “Global Ambassador of Electronic Music.” Frey will be joining John Hanke, VP of Google’s Niantic Labs, as they discuss the Endgame universe.

 

Endgame goes beyond the pages of a book; each installment in the series will feature an interactive puzzle comprised of clues that will lead to the location of a hidden key. The first eligible reader to solve the puzzle for the first book and find the key will win $500,000 worth of gold. 20th Century Fox has picked up the theatrical rights in advance of ENDGAME: The Calling’s highly-anticipated release. Google’s Niantic Labs is developing a location-based augmented reality game that will bring the Endgame books to life in the real world. Technology is being utilized on a huge scale for Endgame and the launch event at the Hammerstein Ballroom reflects this in many ways: “From books to music to mobile apps and beyond, technology is at our disposal and has allowed us to create an entire universe for people to immerse themselves in,” says Frey, “The Hammerstein Ballroom event during New York Super Week will be an awesome way for us to celebrate Endgame but also demonstrate that technology doesn’t need to mean staring at a computer screen all day. It can bring people together in the real-world too.”

Mezco Toyz Prepares To Thrill Fans With Annabelle and The Conjuring Merchandise

New York- Horror fans first entered the world of the paranormal investigation team the Warrens in 2013 with THE CONJURING. Terrified theatergoers couldn’t get enough of the twisted tale, helping it become one of the highest grossing horror films of all times according to Forbes magazine.

 

Annabelle, the doll so evil even the Warrens were afraid of her, now returns to the big screen in ANNABELLE, a film dedicated to her terrifying origin. First introduced in THE CONJURING, the upcoming ANNABELLE tells a tail filled with malevolent entities and killer cultists.

Mezco Toyz is no stranger to the world of the bizarre, the shapeless form in the shadows, and the whisper in the dark…so clearly there is no better choice for a producer of THE CONJURING and ANNABELLE merchandise.

 

Mezco’s award winning design team has already begun creating an Annabelle version of their world record holding Living Dead Dolls, and has many more scares tucked away for the future.

 

Mezco’s unholy collectibles of the damned will arrive in stores in late 2014.

ANNABELLE arrives in theatres in October 2014.

Be sure to visit Mezco at New York Comic Con at booth 1855.
