Image Comics to create their own comic book convention: Image Expo coming in 2012

Posted on 23 November 2011 by Christian

It was announced today that Image comics, the house of Spawn and The Walking Dead, will create their very own comic book convention: Image Expo to launch in February of 2012…the company that shook the comic book industry is at it again.

Back in 1992, 7 comic book creators Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and Whilce Portacio left Marvel Comics in an ongoing dispute over creator controls and royalties. Thus Image Comics was created and went on to creat characters such as Spawn, The Maxx, Savage Dragon and The Walking Dead. Image Comics succeeded in shaking up the Comic Book industry and opening it up for independent companies to thrive. Now, Image is at it again. The company just announced that they will be launching their own Comic Book/Creator convention in California to launch in February 2012. With the recent success of The Walking Dead as one of cable television’s highest rated shows and the up coming movie projects for Spawn and Youngblood, image seems to be capitalizing on the growing business of conventions around the country. Will this then limit the big guns (McFarlane, Kirkman) from appearing at other conventions. Will Image now hold their major announcements for their own convention? Does anybody really care?

Captain America: The First Avenger Set To Have A BIG Impact At Comic Con!

Posted on 06 July 2011 by Christian

While we’ve already heard rumblings that Captain America will have a presence at the San Diego Comic Con, we now have a few more details including “a military salute” and special screening of the movie…

Marvel may be one of the many film studios scaling back their presence at this years San Diego Comic Con, but just because there won’t be a panel in Hall H, doesn’t mean they don’t still have something big planned. According to an exclusive report over at The Hollywood Reporter, Captain America: The First Avenger will be there in full force…as long as Chris Evans isn’t too busy working on The Avengers of course!

Well, there will be no panel, but Heat Vision has learned that, while details are still being worked out, Marvel and Paramount, which is distributing the film, are planning a military salute that would involving star Chris Evans and soldiers stationed in San Diego.

Evans would also attend the Con to do to signings at the Marvel booth.

Additionally, whispers suggest a special Con screening of the film.

One of the details needed to make all this happen is smoothing out Evans’ schedule, so who knows how much of this will come to pass.

With an all star cast which includes Chris Evans as Captain America, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Tommy Lee Jones as Col. Chester Phillips, Stanley Tucci as Abraham Erskine and Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, Captain America: The First Avenger will be released in 3D on July 22, later this year!

Schwarzenegger pulls in huge payday for first post Governator role…

Posted on 02 May 2011 by TH3 No08

Apparently taking 8 years off to play politics can be a very good thing for your career. According to deadline.com, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s just signed a huge deal being closed right now with Bill Block’s financier QED International to pay Schwarzenegger $10 million upfront and 25% first dollar gross on the back end. There’s questions as to whether Arnold can still pull in crowds like he did back in the day and this film will go a long way in answering that question.

The story revolves around a horse breeder (Schwarzenegger) who won the Kentucky Derby but whose wife and child get killed. He sinks into an alcoholic depression and winds up working for a hedge fund jerk who offers him a choice of getting fired or bringing back the rich guy’s son living with the ex-wife in Mexico. Unexpected plot twists ensue, including an Arnold-and-kid road trip back home.
