Watch The Ridiculous (In A Good Way) Trailer For Larime Taylor’s ‘A Voice In The Dark’

a voice in the dark-hed

Larime Taylor is an extraordinary talent. He has a condition, Arthrogryposis , that requires him to hold a Cintiq pen in his mouth in order to draw. Working in this way he's managed to produce seven monthly issues of his Top Cow series A Voice In The Dark, and now the first collected volume of the series is available for purchase. In order to promote the collection, Taylor has released this enjoyably bombastic trailer, complete with a Don LaFontaine soundalike.

A Voice In The Dark is the story of Zoey Aarons, a college freshman who killed once and fears she'll kill again. Unfortunately for Zoe, she's picked a college in a town with the highest population of serial killers in America.

From Under Mountains: Marian Churchland, Claire Gibson and Sloan Leong Subvert Clichés With A New Fantasy Adventure

Untitled-1

There will be magic in From Under Mountains, an ongoing fantasy series coming from Image in 2015 and announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Set in the world of Akhara, the story introduces us to a lord's daughter, a disgraced knight, and a runaway thief whose unlikely partnership will change the course of a world locked in a bitter conflict between rival clans. There will be goblins and witches and knights as well, lost in the churning of a world in turmoil. Great houses will square off for power. Thieves will dash into the shadows. Naïve youths will learn that the world is vaster and more terrible than they ever imagined. In these warm, well-worn ways, it will embrace the best that fantasy, as a genre has to offer: sweeping scope grounded in the lives of heroes, villains, and everything in between.

Creators Marian Churchland, Claire Gibson, and Sloane Leong have worked on everything from Elephantmen to magical girl comics about anthropomorphic wolves, and they are bringing their varied experience to bear upon From Under Mountains and the fantasy genre in ways both familiar and innovative. ComicsAlliance talked with them to discuss breaking new ground with thoughtfulness, experience, and memories of Ursula Le Guin.

Universal’s Cable Arm Picks Up Remender & Dwyer’s ‘Night Mary’, Barbiere & Mooneyham’s ‘Five Ghosts’ And Original Series By Warren Ellis

Untitled-2

Universal Cable Productions, the cable and digital arm of NBCUniversal, announced three new projects rooted in the comic book realm, including what will be Planetary and Transmetropolitan writer Warren Ellis' first original series developed especially for television. Additionally, UCP optioned Night Mary, a 2005 IDW drama by Rick Remender and Kieron Dwyer about a young woman trained to enter the dreams of serial killers; and Five Ghosts, the recent critical hit from Image Comics/Black Mask Studios and creators Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham, who tell the story of Fabian Gray, a 1930s adventurer possessed by the spirits of five literary ghosts — Merlin, Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes, Miyamoto Musashi, and Dracula. Five Ghosts began as a miniseries but its success resulted in an upgrade to ongoing, and now, it seems, an "upgrade" (because comics are the best, obviously) to television.
