Black Mask's Godkiller for animated trilogy

7 November 2014 8:51 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Black Mask Studios is adapting Godkiller into an animated trilogy.

The publisher is financing the big screen adaptation of the series, by Matt Pizzolo, Anna Muckcracker Wieszczyk and Ben Templesmith, reports Deadline.

The comic follows the journey of an orphaned adolescent and escaped slave across a blasted wasteland.

Black Mask will finance and produce the project, which expands the experimental 2010 film Godkiller: Walk Among Us, which starred Lance Henriksen, AFI's Davey Havok, Danielle Harris, Bill Moseley and Lydia Lunch.

To follow Walk Among Us, Pizzolo will write and direct Godkiller: Tomorrow's Ashes in 2016 and Godkiller: The Trouble You Took From Her Eyes in 2017.

He is one of the founders of Black Mask alongside Steve Niles and Bad Religion's Brett Gurewitz.

Godkiller launched as a self-published, underground title in 2008 and was subsequently picked up by Black Mask. »

Craven Plans "Coming of Rage" TV Series

29 October 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"A Nightmare on Elm Street" and "Scream" director Wes Craven has launched his first comic book, the five-issue limited series "Coming of Rage".

Of course as it is Craven, a screen adaptation of the material is already in the works - in this case a TV series which Cheyenne Enterprises are developing.

Craven and "30 Days of Night" creator Steve Niles co-wrote the comic which basically sounds like a variation on the British series "Being Human" in that it's a coming of age tale about three friends - a vampire, a werewolf and a zombie - who end up on the run together.

The first three issues of the comic have been released together as a special Halloween digital exclusive for Amazon’s Kindle.

Shrek's Andrew Adamson adapting Breath of Bones comic

24 September 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Andrew Adamson will direct an adaptation of Steve Niles's Breath of Bones.

The Chronicles of Narnia director has signed on for a film based on the 30 Days of Night co-creator's comic.

The Dark Horse Comics series centres around a golem - the Jewish myth of a clay giant animated by magic - which is brought to life to fight Nazis in World War II.

"Telling a story can be tough," Niles told The Hollywood Reporter. "It's the one monster rooted in religion and mysticism, so I wanted to be respectful.

"I decided to tell it as a World War II fable. It's a story of a grandfather teaching his grandson how to make a monster to defend his village against a Nazi invasion."

Matt Santoro served as co-writer on the comic alongside artist Dave Watcher.

Adamson directed the first two Shrek films, as well as Narnia movies The Lion, »

Get Well Soon Bernie Wrightson

8 July 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The name Bernie Wrightson is synonymous with monster culture and horror artwork. Very few people inspire the term "legendary," but Bernie more than fits the bill. Unfortunately, word has come that Wrightson has just suffered a minor stroke.

The news came from Steve Niles on Twitter, who goes on to write, "He is doing good. I just spoke to him and we were joking around. Please send love and thoughts."

No problem, Steve, and we couldn't echo the sentiments more! Please, if you're reading this, post your thoughts to Twitter sending as many positive vibes as you can using the hashtag #GetWellBernie.

Hang in there, sir! Fight back and we'll fight the good fight along with you! Much love from the D.C. family! Bless you... you're in our thoughts!

Criminal Macabre: The Third Child Announced By Dark Horse

8 June 2014 11:06 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Sometimes if you aren’t a real die hard comic fan, some really quality comics manage to slip under the radar. It’s kind of like being a horror movie fan. And it’s always fun to bring one out to the forefront because you know it’s awesome and fun and critically acclaimed and criminally overlooked. Criminal Macabre, by Steve Niles, is that kind of story. In 1990, Niles (author of a multitude of titles, most recognizably 30 Days of Night) introduced his own anti-hero to the world. Akin to John Constantine, Cal McDonald is a paranormal detective who isn’t exactly a knight of virtue.

This July, Idw Publishing and 44Flood come together again to release an all-new four-issue series, The Squidder, from famed comic artist Ben Templesmith; and we have all the info you need here, including a look at the cover art.

Templesmith has previously written and drawn the series Singularity 7 and multiple Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse miniseries.
