A Documentary Showing How the Dark Knight of Comic Books, Movies and TV Has Given Hope to Those Facing Great Challenges Comes to Virgil Films DVD and Digital Download on November 18, 2014

 “You will not see a more emotionally engaging Batman movie in your entire life.”
– Filmmaker Kevin Smith

Batman may be a fictional character but he has proven to be a genuine inspiration to millions of people facing disease, disability or hardship, as movingly revealed in the new documentary LEGENDS OF THE KNIGHT. The powerful, feel-good film will be released on Virgil Films DVD, VOD and Digital Download on November 18, 2014.

Batman has always held a special place in the hearts of superhero fans. Orphaned at a young age, he is an emotionally intense mortal whose compassion and sense of justice have helped him rise to heroic heights. LEGENDS OF THE KNIGHT weaves together the uplifting true stories of individuals who have embraced their inner superhero, overcome devastating obstacles, and unselfishly given to their communities because of their love for the Caped Crusader.

Through the deeply personal tales of Batman fans, writers and filmmakers, this feature-length documentary encourages viewers to find their own uniquely courageous paths. Funded by more than 1,100 people from around the world, LEGENDS OF THE KNIGHT is a return to our childhood dreams of becoming a hero.

Says filmmaker Brett Culp: “Each of my films is a ‘cinematic documentary’. I am passionate about real stories with inspirational messages. My work is about reminding us of the beauty within our own stories and in the stories around us.”

Culp’s LEGENDS OF THE KNIGHT has screened in 90 cities to date, with proceeds benefiting charities and the families they serve. Each screening has become an evening of inspiration and heroic possibilities for families – complete with superhero costumes and capes – while raising awareness and funds for charity. More than 60 charities have benefited, including Ronald McDonald House, Make-A-Wish Foundation, St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Boys & Girls Club of America, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Special Olympics, children’s hospitals and more.

“Not your typical superhero flick,” said Whitney Matheson of USA Today. “I didn’t expect to get teary-eyed.” Said Nerdvana, “This is one of the most uplifting films you’re likely to see this year. Highly recommended.” Movie Pilot called it “the most important superhero movie you should see this year.”

Put your cape on and get inspired by the Dark Knight!

November 17,  2014 (Los Angeles, Calif.) – KaBOOM!, the award-winning all-ages imprint from publisher BOOM! Studios, is thrilled to announce the New Year’s Eve release of Abigail and the Snowman, a new, original miniseries from Eisner Award-winning creator Roger Langridge (Snarked!, Jim Henson’s The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow). This heartwarming story follows young Abigail, the new girl at school with a habit of talking to imaginary friends. When her newest friend turns out to be a real yeti named Claude who escaped from a top-secret government facility, it’s up to Abigail to keep him safe from the “Shadow Men” chasing him.


“Roger is a master of creating emotionally resonant stories that pull at your heartstrings and put a smile on your face,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “He’s proven it time and again, from his work on Snarked! to his most recent adaptation of Jim Henson’s The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow. Now, he’s constructed a brand-new story about a girl and her Yeti. Abigail and Claude are reminiscent of Calvin and Hobbes; they’re best friends to the end and a delight to follow around the town of Shipton-on-Sea. This is one of those rare comics that I think virtually anybody will enjoy. Roger is that good.”

Abigail and the Snowman #1 arrives in comic shops on December 31st with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code OCT141174. The main cover is illustrated by series creator Roger Langridge, with an incentive cover by Sonny Liew (Malinky Robot). The Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is December 1st.
