Some pop culture vultures write about what they love!
The latest news from PAPERCUTZ: SDCC, Trolls, and more
Hi BC Refugees readers,
Happy Monday! It's pretty dreary here in New York City, so we're going to try our best to brighten the day!
This weekend, Papercutz was at San Diego Comic Con, where we held a panel celebrating the launch of our new GUMBY comic (and of course celebrating Gumby himself!) Above is a picture of Gumby and Pokey hanging with the crowd outside the panel, and at our website:
saying, "Osborne and Fish deliver a heartrending YA drama with this graphic novel, showcasing how the building blocks of a fairy tale can be reassembled into something new and enlightening." The book will be released in the next couple of weeks!
On August 8th, Papercutz will release the third volume of our TROLLS series, "Party with the Bergens!" Based on the wildly popular movie (which is, of course, based on the wildly popular dolls), our TROLLS series has been a hair-raising hit!
In this all-new, 64-page graphic novel, the Trolls are being thrown a surprise pizza party by none other than...The Bergens! But when the tomato sauce, cheese and dough disappear unexpectedly, they improvise and invent their own pizzas using gummy worms, frosting, sprinkles, and, of course, chocolate! It'll either be the best party ever or a total disaster...
It's an exciting time to be a TROLLS fan! We know it's a bit early to start thinking about the holidays, but this winter, NBC will air Trolls Holiday, a funtastic comedy-musical special starring your faves Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick! And the saga of the Trolls and the Bergens will continue beyond that with a Trolls television series, airing on Netflix next year! But before all that, you can check out your favorite hirsute party animals in TROLLS: "Party with the Bergens!"
TALES FROM THE CRYPT #2 FEATURES TWO STORIES FROM LEGENDARY COMICS ARTIST BERNIE WRIGHTSON “LOST CLASSICS” FROM LATE CREATOR APPEAR IN COLOR FOR THE FIRST TIMEfrom the official press release . . . . . . .NEW YORK - (March 21, 2017) - The entire comics industry was saddened to learn of the passing of legendary comics artist Bernie Wrightson this past weekend. Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
