Titan and Hard Case Crime announce GUN HONEY #1

Titan Comics and Hard Case Crime has announced GUN HONEY, a new 4-part crime comic series written by Charles Ardai, the Edgar and Shamus award winner and co-founder of Hard Case Crime, with art by Ang Hor Kheng. Issue #1 launches September 15, 2021 with covers by superstar artist Bill Sienkiewicz and legendary movie poster artist Robert McGinnis.

Praised by comic creators Max Allan Collins (Ms. Tree), Ed Brubaker (Captain America) and Duane Swierczynski (Birds of Prey), GUN HONEY is a story about weapons supplier Joanna Tan, the best in the world at providing the perfect weapon at the perfect moment. But when a gun she smuggles into a high-security prison leads to the escape of a brutal criminal, the U.S. government gives her an ultimatum: track him down or spend the rest of her life in a cell.

In addition to Sienkiewicz and McGinnis, the comic will feature stunning covers across the series from fantastic artists including Adam Hughes, Kendrick Lim, Jay Anacleto, Chris Wahl, Fay Dalton, Andrea Camerini, and more.

“Gun Honey is a project I’ve been working on ever since we launched Hard Case Crime Comics five years ago, and I’m thrilled to finally get to share it with readers,” said Charles Ardai. “Anyone who loves Modesty Blaise or Alias or Uma Thurman in Tarantino’s Kill Bill will be drawn to Joanna Tan’s story the same way I was, and anyone who loves great comic book art will be floored by Ang Hor Kheng’s stunning debut.”

GUN HONEY is the latest title from Titan’s acclaimed Hard Case Crime comics imprint, whose recent publications have included Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Electrified Tesla by award-winning author, artist and playwright Cynthia von Buhler; explosive manga Ryuko by Eldo Yoshimizu; the multi-volume complete Ms. Tree collection by Road to Perdition author Max Allan Collins; and adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s international best-selling Girl With The Dragon Tattoo novels.

Gun Honey #1 will hit stores and digital devices on September 15, 2021. Fans will be able to pre-order in the US from their local comic shop, in the UK/Europe from Forbidden Planet, and digitally.

Marvel’s Dark Ages Begins In Tom Taylor And Iban Coello’s New Series

The world outside your window…is about to end. This September, New York Times best-selling writer Tom Taylor (X-Men: Red, All-New Wolverine) will team up with Marvel’s Stormbreaker artist Iban Coello (Venom, Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade) for a thrilling new vision of the Marvel Universe in DARK AGES.

Foreshadowed in last year’s Free Comic Book Day: X-Men and in today’s series of mysterious teasers, this highly anticipated limited series will see heroes from every corner of the Marvel Universe unite against a new threat – and fail. Their defeat will usher in an exciting new age full of heartbreaking loss and unimaginable stakes. As the world is remade, fans will meet fascinating new versions of their favorite heroes as they fight to overcome insurmountable odds and restore hope to the universe.

“I’m excited to team up with the brilliant Iban Coello on one of the most epic stories I’ve ever been involved in,” said Taylor. “Marvel’s Dark Ages is a story unlike any we’ve told before. And it all begins with the shocking revelation of what the Watcher has been watching for. A danger older than the Earth threatens everything. And for once, the heroes who have saved the planet time and again find themselves almost completely powerless in the face of it. X-Men and Avengers will assemble. Spider-people and the Fantastic Four will come together. Heroes for Hire will fight alongside Champions. But none of it will be enough. The lights are about to go out… forever.”

    Meet Mysterious New Marvel Villains And Heroes In The Marvels #1

    THREADNEEDLE the marvels comicsOne of the biggest, most sprawling series ever to hit the Marvel Universe is set to arrive this April.

    This sprawling story will play with the grand tapestry that is Marvel Comics in an exhilarating new way by diving headfirst into Marvel history to tying together unsolved mysteries, make brand-new connections between characters, and reintroduce long-dormant threats. Along the way, readers is set to be introduced to new heroes and villains like Threadneedle, Warbird, and Kevin Schumer, and be reacquainted with new takes on classic characters such as Lady Lotus.

    Here’s what Kurt told Comicbook.com in an exclusive interview about the most mysterious character of the lot—the being known as Threadneedle:
    “We introduce three new characters in THE MARVELS 1 — one who’s very much on a human level, one wrapped up with superhero history and ties beyond Earth, and one who’s outright weird and cosmic and will usher us into a bigger, stranger, deeper world. Threadneedle is that third guy, as I expect you can tell. And yeah, Alex did an astounding design of Threadneedle, didn’t he? Quirky and trippy, and nothing like anyone else Marvel’s had in stories before. And that’s all very intentional. Make sure to keep an eye on him. He’s got fascinating secrets.”

    Second New “The Suicide Squad” Trailer Released

    By Creative Media Times

    Another trailer for James Gunn‘s highly anticipated film The Suicide Squad has been released today, April Fool’s Day.

    “Although it’s April Fool’s, the only joke here is on the super-villains who agreed to work for Amanda Waller. Brand new #TheSuicideSquad trailer which dropped last night exclusively in theaters! Meet us in theaters August 6!”, director James Gunn tweeted today, along with the film’s trailer.

    The trailer, which is also playing in theaters along with the screenings of WB’s own Godzilla vs. Kong, shows the more gloomy and ominous tone of the film, sans the profanity and bloody violence from the Red Band trailer that was released last week.

    Set to the cover “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye,” the trailer features some for the powers of the film’s characters.

    The film is currently set for release in theaters and HBO Max on August 6.
