Comic News: TODD MCFARLANE TEAMS UP WITH IMAGE FOUNDER AND YOUNGBLOOD CREATOR ROB LIEFELD ON SPAWN #196!



Image Comics founders and IMAGE UNITED collaborators join forces on the highly anticipated finale to SPAWN: ENDGAME!

For the past year, SPAWN: ENDGAME has riveted readers with its game-changing story line featuring the death of Al Simmons and Todd McFarlane's return to illustrating his seminal creation. In November's SPAWN #196, ENDGAME concludes with a bang as McFarlane shares art duties with fellow Image Comics founder Rob Liefeld.

“I was looking for good artistic help, and remembered inking over Rob on his New Mutant covers back in the Marvel days, and most recently a little bit of IMAGE UNITED," McFarlane said. "I thought it would be a fun experiment to see what Capullo layouts, Liefeld pencils and my inks looked like together on a handful of pages.”

In the conclusion of SPAWN: ENDGAME, reporter Marc Rosen connects the miracle patient stories to the new SPAWN, Jim Downing, as detectives Sam, Twitch and Rowand discover the association between Downing's awakening, Bill Winston’s suicide and the Nortego crime syndicate.

SPAWN #196 (JUL090355), a 32-page full color comic book for $2.95, will be in-stores November 25th, 2009.

Comic News: Bat Boy and Weekly World News Come to Comics



Bat Boy and the Weekly World News come to comics in January

First-ever comic series for fan-favorite tabloid characters


For years, Bat Boy and the other bizarre denizens of the Weekly World News universe have delighted millions in the long-running tabloid newspaper. Now, those same colorful characters are headed to full-color comic books for the first time with IDW Publishing's Weekly World News, a new four-issue miniseries starting in January.

Written by IDW's Publisher/Editor-in-Chief and WWN fanatic Chris Ryall, with art by Alan Robinson, Weekly World News revives the tabloid's best and sees them band together to take on, among other things, the world-destroying threat of Chaos Cloud. Each issue will also feature original articles from the original Weekly World News, and a variant cover that pays insane "tribute" to a classic image.
"Some would say my interest in bringing the Weekly World News characters to comics borders on crazed obsession," said Ryall, "and far be it from me to disagree with them. I'm just happy Bat Boy comic books never happened before, so we could break new ground here. It's been especially gratifying because Alan is well up to the task of drawing every insane thing asked of him ("Draw an angry storm cloud with the face of a former French leader? No problem!"), and the Weekly World News people have been incredibly enthusiastic about bringing their iconic characters to comics."

The series kicks off with a cover featuring Joe Corroney's version of Bat Boy, inspired by Alex Ross's painted Barack Obama pose, and a special retailer incentive Alan Robinson sketch cover of Bat Boy as Rodin's "Thinker." As another added bonus, Issue #1 will feature some of the classic Bat Boy strips by the great Peter Bagge.

"In short, Eisner Award judges, get ready to mark your ballots when you see this series," added Ryall.

This first Weekly World News miniseries gives the world a new vocabulary word in its subtitle, "The Irredemption of Ed Anger." The series unites the beloved Bat Boy with PhD Ape (simian psychologist to the stars), UFO Alien (presidential-predicting pundit from the stars), Manigator (half-man/half-gator good ol' boy), Lemmie (the Lake Erie Monster) as they battle Chaos Cloud (unpredictable weather front with the face of Fran├žois Mitterand). Caught in the middle of all of this is the far-right-wing columnist Ed Anger ("pave the Rain Forest!"), who thinks inhuman freaks have as much place in America as liberals, female voters and foreign beer. Along the way, the series pays tribute to other comics and numerous other pop-culture visuals and references (so many that Ryall will be offering annotations in the back of each issue, too).

"Everyone at Weekly World New is delighted to partner with IDW on this creative extension of some of American's most loved characters," said Neil McGinness, Weekly World News CEO.

The Weekly World News, which carried the tagline "The World's Only Reliable News" and spent years living up to that description, launched in 1979 as a supermarket tabloid focused on sensational stories. The brand's website www.weeklyworldnews.com is a leading entertainment news website.

Weekly World News #1 (of 4), a 32-page, $3.99 comic book, debuts in January 2010. Diamond order code NOV09 0841.

Matty Answers 11/01/09



Mattel took time out their busy schedule to answer some questions

1) The aesthetic for the MOTUC line seems to be about 80% 1980's design and about 20% 200X but in cases where the 1980's figures were limited by technology or dominated by an action feature are you still going to try and stick close to the classic look? A good example would be Leech. Since there are no action features in this line, would we expect him to look more like his station or would he still have his flat sucker mouth as a nod to the original figure?

There is a good chance we would do two heads on Leech to capture his vintage action feature face and his 2002 redesign look. But he is not planned for release quite yet!

2) What are the chances of Mattel adopting a resalable kind of packaging for the MOTUC line so collectors don't need to ruin the awesome package art to get to their even more awesome figures?

Not at this time. It is something we will continue to explore.

3) Can you give us any info on the weapons packs? It was said that they would be seasonal but when do they start and when can we expect to get an idea of what kinds of things will be in them?

We are still working on this pack and are not ready to reveal details yet. When we do, we’ll make a big announcement.

4) A rumor has circulated that Mattel may be able to offer Public Enemies and poorly distributed or retail exclusive waves of the DCUC line at some point in the future through the mattycollector website. Is there any truth to that rumor?

We do plan more re-releases of older hard to find product starting with Hawkman and Robin from Superfriends later this winter.

5) Like you done for 2009: Could you say us how many MOTUC figures in 2010 are never been made before, never released as 200X and how many females could we get?

Not quite yet. We do not yet know how many bonus figures we are doing in 2010, so it is hard to give a count right now. After we see how the first few figures, including Battlecat, perform we’ll have a better idea of what 2010 will look like.
