The demon with a good heart heads out on the open water this spring in Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea. To celebrate the graphic novel's April 19th release in comic book shops (followed by a May 2nd release in bookstores), Daily Dead was honored to catch up with artist Gary Gianni for our latest Q&A feature to discuss collaborating with Mike Mignola on Into the Silent Sea, what readers can expect from the unique Hellboy story, an upcoming release that should excite Prince Valiant fans, and much more.
Gary Gianni: Mike and I have spent 20 years discussing comics, movies and books. The notion of working on a comic together just sort of fell in place naturally.
What was it like working with Mike Mignola on this story? »

With their critically acclaimed series wrapping up with latest issue, “Finale”, Beast Wagon creators Owen Michael Johnson and John Pearson discuss their unique vision and inspirations…
Like a stampede running rampant in a public zoo, the arrival of Beast Wagon two years ago took comic fans with surprise – and it’s one they won’t soon forget. Surreal, demented, peppered with dark humour and layered with social commentary, Changeling Studios’ bonkers odyssey is not only original, but it’s reflective of the troubling times we’ve faced in recent years – as well as the possible dark period ahead. An effective piece art, Beast Wagon taps into collective fears, anxieties and frustrations felt in the current socio-political climate, while, at the same time, manages to lure us into a world unlike anything else. Bold, thought provoking and wholly original, it’s a must have for any serious comic aficionados collection. Recently, »

There was a lot of buzz and excitement in 1999. People around planet earth were excited to see what the new Millennium would bring; while big companies panicked that the Y2K bug would kill all their hard work and shut down the working world. For Dougray Scott, 1999 was set to be the year that changed his career. He had been handpicked by Tom Cruise to play the villain in M:i:2 and he was set to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer’s X-Men.
The adaptation of the popular Marvel Comics property had been a long one. In 1984 Marvel writers Gerry Conway and Rob Thomas wrote a screenplay for production company Orion Pictures (Platoon) who had optioned the film rights.

This week is a mish-mash featuring my reactions and thoughts to some of my fellow ComicMix columnists and two reader’s thoughts on my column from last week.
In response to my column last week, which I wrote while watching the New York Giants/Green Bay Packers wild card playoff game, Mark Belktron wrote:
Johnny O (the O is for Ostrander) talked about the King, a.k.a. Jack Kirby, yesterday, and his first encounter with the “mild-mannered” genius of the four-color page. Hey, John, did you read the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, by Michael Chabon? If not, you really must! In fact, as I once mentioned long ago and far away (but not in another galaxy – at least, I think not), anyone who claims to be a comics fan must – im-not-so-ho, of course – read this, uh, amazing semi-fictionalized and semi-biographical novel of the birth »

Ah, now this is a shame. For a while now, one of the directorial projects on the slate of Martin Scorsese has been a biopic of the late Frank Sinatra. Reports had previously suggested that Scorsese wanted Al Pacino to play an older Sinatra, with Robert De Niro taking on the role of Dean Martin. Michael Chabon had been working on the screenplay for the movie, although more recently Field Of Dreams writer/director Phil Alden Robinson had been working on the script.
Following the release of his latest film, Silence, Scorsese’s next project will be a long-awaited reunion with Robert De Niro, with The Irishman (that’s also set to feature Joe Pesci and Pacino). But it seems that the Sinatra project has now completely died a death. »
