Big Apple Con takes place at the Penn Plaza Pavilion (401 7th Avenue) in Manhattan on Saturday, March 7, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For more information, visit the Big Apple Con website. Unfortunately, I probably won’t know the location of the SWC table until I get there—right now, all I know is that it’ll be in artists alley—but I’ll be sure to give you the lowdown if that situation changes prior to the show.

Hope to see you there!

SnowWhite_cover Speaking of fairy-tale heroines, you should definitely check out Snow White, StarWarp Concepts’ presentation of the classic story by the Brothers Grimm, and one of the popular titles in our illustrated classics line. Featuring full-color illustrations first published in 1883 (and they really are beautiful drawings), this digital-exclusive title is available for immediate download for the low price of just 99¢!

Red Sonja #100—really? Yes, it’s the same accounting trick in play that Dynamite has used for Warlord of Mars #100 and Vampirella #100—namely, adding up all the series, miniseries, and one-shots they’ve published to reach the magic number of 100. This special features stories by original Sonja writer Roy Thomas, current Sonja writer Gail Simone, her predecessor Eric Trautmann, Powers co-creator Michael Avon Oeming, and Luke Lieberman, with art by Pablo Marcos, Dave Acosta, Taki Soma, Noah Salonga, and Sergio Fernandez Davila. Head on over to C4S to read all about it.

Speaking of flame-tressed she-devils, have you been introduced to Lorelei, StarWarp Concepts’ resident soul-stealing succubus? Making her comics debut in 1993, Lori has remained SWC’s first leading lady of horror, and currently stars in two critically acclaimed projects:

Lorelei: Sects and the CityLorelei: Sects and the City is a Mature Readers graphic novel in which Lori battles a cult of Elder God worshipers attempting to unleash hell on Earth. Basically a love letter to 1970s horror comics like Vampirella, Tomb of Dracula, and “Satana the Devil’s Daughter,” it’s written by yours truly, Steven A. Roman (Stan Lee’s Alexa, X-Men: The Chaos Engine Trilogy), and illustrated by Eliseu Gouveia (Vengeance of the Mummy, Lady Death), Steve Geiger (Web of Spider-Man, Incredible Hulk), and Neil Vokes (Flesh and Blood, Fright Night). It also features a cover by legendary artist Esteban Maroto (Vampirella, Zatanna, Lady Rawhide) and a frontispiece by original Vampirella artist Tom Sutton (Ghost Rider, Man-Thing, Werewolf by Night). It’s available in both print and e-book formats, so visit the Lorelei: Sects and the City product page for all the ordering information, as well as sample pages.

House_Macabre_large_finalLorelei Presents: House Macabre is Lori’s debut as the hostess of a horror anthology comic. Behind that eye-catching cover by bad-girl artist supreme Louis Small Jr. (Vampirella, Vampirella/Lady Death), you’ll find stories by Steven A. Roman (yep, me again) and Dwight Jon Zimmerman (Iron Man, Web of Spider-Man). Art is provided by Uriel Caton & “Chainsaw” Chuck Majewski (Heartstopper: The Legend of La Bella Tenebrosa), Lou Manna (T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents), John Pierard (Graphic Classics: Horror Classics), and Juan Carlos Abraldes Rendo. It’s available in print for $3.99 (plus shipping) exclusively from the StarWarp Concepts webstore, and in digital form for $1.99 from DriveThru Comics and the SWC webstore (and hopefully soon from ComicsFix and comiXology, as well). Visit the Lorelei Presents: House Macabre product page for all the ordering information, as well as sample pages.

Frank-Thorne-Exhibit-Ad

From March 9 to March 30, 2015, in New York City, Illustration House presents “Through the Eyes of a Wizard”: Frank Thorne’s first-ever exhibition and sale, with over 70 original works, from Red Sonja to his contemporary paintings, curated by Zaddick Longenbach.

Frank Thorne started his comic career in 1948 at the age of 18, paying his dues on romance stories and titles from Tom Corbett to Twilight Zone, until Robert E. Howard’s heroine Red Sonja came under his pen in ’75, and he never looked back. Frank came into his own with the sexy, feisty barbarian, making Sonja one of Marvel’s top-selling titles, as well as getting one of the first conventions devoted to a single character: Sonja Con, in 1976.

Frank left Sonja at its peak in ‘78 to create his own erotic epic Ghita of Alizarr, one of the first graphic novels in the history of comics. This led to other original characters, including “Danger Rangerette” for National Lampoon, “Lann” for Heavy MetalRibit!, and “Moonshine McJugs” for Playboy, where his work appeared for 20 years. At the age of 84, Frank is still in his studio working on large-scale paintings.

“Through the Eyes of a Wizard” debuts on Saturday, March 7, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. In attendance will be Frank Thorne and current Red Sonja model Bre Shanklin. The exhibition then opens to the public on March 9, and runs through March 30.

Illustration House is located at 34 West 27th Street, 4th Floor, New York City. All works will be viewable online prior to the opening, at the Illustration House website.

Exhibit hours: Monday to Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., weekends by appointment.

Considering Thorne is one of my all-time-favorite artists, you can bet I’ll be dropping by Illustration House to take a look at his incredible work!

Today in WTF News: So CBS's upcoming SUPERGIRL series pilot is making her first villain...a super-powered lumberjack?! Way to lower expectations, folks...

EDGE OF TOMORROW: Finally got around to seeing it, and enjoyed it. The ending's a little "Whaaaat?" but Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt make the movie an enjoyable ride. Recommended.

20 FEET FROM STARDOM (Gil Friesen Prod.): Interesting documentary about backup singers, but not as good as the doc STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN, about the Funk Bros.

THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS (Orbit): A great, unique zombie novel by M. R. Carey (aka Mike Carey, former writer of DC's Hellblazer). Recommended—go track down a copy and give it a read!

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS: In just over a minute, J.J. Abrams's teaser trailer for the next SW got the old fan in me excited for the first time in a looong time. Bring on December 2015!

THE FLASH (CW) and CONSTANTINE (NBC): Who knew I'd be enjoying these series this much? Too bad there'll never be a crossover...

JOSE GONZALEZ'S VAMPIRELLA: ART EDITION: Full-sized reproductions of classic Vampi art pages, coming from Dynamite Entertainment in 2015! There goes *my* money...

SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
3 DAYS TO KILL (Relativity): Kevin Costner is a CIA "cleaner" who has to balance a fatal illness with one last mission while he tries bonding w/his estranged daughter. A good actioner from director McG & producer Luc Besson.
Wed Oct 29, 2014, 6:21 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
JOHN WICK (Lionsgate): Keanu Reeves kicks much ass and shoots lots of people in the head in this fast-paced action film. And the moral of the story? Never shoot John Wick's dog—it makes John tense.
Wed Oct 29, 2014, 6:15 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
DOCTOR WHO: THE 12TH DOCTOR #1 (Titan): Some good Doctor/Clara interplay and Moebius/Heavy Metal–inspired artwork make for a great kickoff to this new series of adventures. Recommended.
