Kyle Starks’ ‘Sexcastle’ Optioned By Fox, With ‘Workaholics’ Creators And Russo Brothers Attached To Direct

Sexcastle by Kyle Starks

Good news for fans of stories about stabbing, nunchucks, Road House and puns: Sexcastle, the original graphic novel by Kyle Starks that is pretty heavily involved with all of those things, has been picked up by Fox to be made into a film. As revealed in an announcement at Deadline, it's set to be directed by Kyle Newacheck and produced by Mike Larocca and Anthony and Joe Russo. Blake Anderson is set to star as Shane Sexcastle, an assassin who retired from killing and moved to a small town, and --- as you might expect --- ended up having to kill a whole lot of people anyway.

Bullets, High Kicks And Humanity: Antony Johnston Talks ‘Codename Baboushka’ [Interview]

Codename Baboushka, Antony Johnston and Shari Chankhamma

Last year brought us a whole lot of great new titles from Image, and Codename Baboushka was no exception. Launched in October by Antony Johnston, Shari Chankhamma and Simon Bowland, the series focuses on Contessa Annika Malikova, a former boss in the Russian Mafiya who defected to America --- and was blackmailed in to running missions for the CIA.

It's a bombastic take on espionage, and for more classified information, I spoke to Johnston about the development of the idea, his approach to high action, and the essays from writers like Leigh Alexander and Danielle Henderson included in each issue.

On The Cheap: The Latest Humble Bundle Features ‘Kaptara,’ ‘Bitch Planet’ And More To Benefit The Human Rights Campaign

Kaptara vol. 1, Chip Zdarsky and Kagan McLeod

I've been keeping my eye on the Humble Bundle for a long time now to find good deals on cheap comics, and one of the things that still surprises me every time there's a new one is that there's always something brand new in there. Take, for instance, the current bundle, which focuses on creator-owned comics from Image. Not only does it have Image mainstays like Invincible, Phonogram, and Saga, but it also includes the first volume of Chip Zdarsky and Kagan McLeod's Kaptara, collecting the first five issues of the series.

Folks. Kaptara vol. 1 came out less than a month ago. #6 isn't even out yet. So on the off chance that you need an economic justification to get a whole bunch of comic books and support the Human Rights Campaign, just imagine that you're paying full price for Kaptara, Bitch Planet, and Just The Tips, and getting 47 issues of Invincible for free.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For January 13 2016

BestComics_0113

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

With the 12th and final issue now in stores, Brubaker has joined us for a two-part interview about the series. Today, in the second half, we talk about the relationships between Charlie and the rest of the cast, designs for the characters, and the upcoming Criminal one-shot with Sean Phillips that introduces the sensational character find of 2016.

Si Spurrier and Ryan Kelly Unleash the Wolves of War for ‘Cry Havoc’ [Interview]

cryhavoc-feat

Si Spurrier and Ryan Kelly return to Image in 2016 for a new ongoing series called Cry Havoc. Mixing modern-day warfare with mythological monsters, the series is primarily set in the Middle East, where it follows the story of a woman, Louise, who has a few... secrets. You see, Louise is a bit of a werewolf.

There's also a further wrinkle to the comic, which plays a huge role in the story. With the series structured into three parts, colorists Lee Loughridge, Nick Filardi and Matt Wilson are each taking on one of the three segments --- making for a comic that properly demonstrates the range, differences and importance of colorists. ComicsAlliance spoke to Spurrier and Kelly about the structural conceit of the series, and the big idea that goes beyond "lesbian werewolf."
