Amazon and Dark Horse Entertainment developing Emily the Strange animated movie

9 December 2016 2:15 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Amazon Studios and Dark Horse Entertainment are developing an animated feature adaptation of the pop culture character Emily the Strange.

Created by Rob Reger in the 1990s as an advertising mascot for skateboards,the punky goth girl has since spawned a multi-million dollar merchandising brand spanning fashion, comics and books, toys and various other accessories. Dark Horse has been publishing comic books based upon the character since 2005.

THR reports that Reger will serve as a producer alongside Dark Horse’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg, and the search is now underway for a writer to pen the adaptation.

Universal Pictures had previously held the rights to the character, tapping Melissa Wallack (Dallas Buyers Club) to pen a live-action movie, which at one point had Chloe Grace Moretz attached to star. »

That, boys and girl, is called knowing the game. Those who don’t shouldn’t play. So despite being blackballed by one of the big two how was I able to thrive?

Alternative means of finding distribution, budget and happiness.

The vast majority of top tier creators in the industry use one option.

There are numerous more, and I’ll touch on those next time.

As well I will break down what option was preferred and why for the project I’m using for this series. I’ve been in the game for a long time. What I use as examples are not intended as a ‘how to’ to get into the comics biz. If so the series would be named ‘how to ruin your career.’

The underlying point is to look at the big picture when entering this field. I believe with every fiber of my »

Review: "Comix: Beyond The Comic Book Pages" (2016), A Documentary By Michael Valentine; DVD Special Edition From Kino Lorber

30 August 2016 3:32 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Todd Garbarini

I was first introduced to comic books in 1979 by my father’s cousin, Dan, who had an unusually large collection of them in his parent’s basement. I had already seen Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978) twice and loved it, completely enthralled with the big screen adventures of the Man of Steel as embodied by Christopher Reeve.

Today, along with Jim Lee, Dan Didio is the current Co-Publisher of DC Comics. In the years hence, I have followed my fair share of comic book characters, but never with the level of enthusiasm that is on display at the annual San Diego Comic Con or the »
