Gun Honey Graphic Novel In Development For Television

GUN HONEY, the new 4-part comic book series launching in September 2021 by Charles Ardai, the Edgar and Shamus award winning author and co-founder of Hard Case Crime, is being developed for television by Piller/Segan, producers of Private Eyes, Haven, Greek, Wildfire, and The Dead Zone, and Malaysia-based Double Vision, the production arm of the Vision New Media Group and the award-winning producers behind the acclaimed Asian adaptation of The Bridge.

Featuring interior art by Malaysian illustrator Ang Hor Kheng as well as two covers by legendary movie poster painter Robert McGinnis (creator of the posters for the original James Bond films), GUN HONEY tells the story of Singapore-born weapons expert Joanna Tan, the best in the world at providing her clients with the perfect weapon at the perfect moment. When her new assignment leads to the escape of a brutal criminal from a high-security prison, Joanna is forced to track him down – and to confront secrets about her own past that will challenge her sense of who she is.

GUN HONEY will be the second television collaboration between Hard Case Crime and Piller/Segan, who previously worked together to produce Haven, based on the first of three bestselling novels written for Hard Case Crime by Stephen King. Haven ran for six years on SyFy in the U.S. and was distributed in 185 territories worldwide.

“We look forward to continuing our creative partnership with Charles, in concert with our friends and colleagues, Min Lim and Chi-Ren Choong at Double Vision, as we collectively bring GUN HONEY to the screen,” said Lloyd Segan, founding partner at Piller/Segan.

Marvel And Gallery Books Announce Collaboration To Publish Premiere Marvel Non-Fiction Titles

Marvel Entertainment and Gallery Books Group, a division of Simon & Schuster, announced today a collaboration to publish new premier Marvel non-fiction titles starting in 2022. These new titles will launch under Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, and focus on the storied history of Marvel Comics through today and the cultural impact of some of the world’s most iconic super heroes.

Early next year, Marvel and Gallery’s collaboration will kick off with their first new title, Super Visible: The Story of the Women of Marvel, written by #1 New York Times bestselling author and Marvel creator Margaret Stohl (The Life of Captain Marvel, Spider-Man: Noir) and Judy Stephens, producer and co-creator of today’s hit Women of Marvel podcast that launched in 2014.

Super Visible: The Story of the Women of Marvel will tell the journey of the groundbreaking women at the House of Ideas from 1939 through today, with unprecedented access to essays, stories, images, and over 120 exclusive interviews with women and non-binary Marvel creators, writers, actors, and more, including the incredible leading women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Margaret Stohl, author of 14 novels, graphic books, 12 video games, and multiple Marvel Comics, will bring her years of experience in the comics industry and beyond to shine a light on the women behind historic Marvel moments and dive into the meaning of their own Marvel stories, in close collaboration with Judy Stephens from The Women of Marvel podcast.

“My first Marvel job was writing Spiderman for the original PlayStation in 2000. Twenty-one years later, I’ve written my way through most of the major Marvel canon, in everything from comics and novels to games,” said Stohl. “I’ve sat in the Marvel Creative Council and been in the room where it happens. It’s an honor to finally get to tell the real story of everything I’ve seen behind the scenes — particularly the story of the women, the fantastically talented, ambitious, brilliantly creative Women of Marvel, who do so much and yet are so often overlooked in what is seen as a largely male-driven community.”

The Women of Marvel podcast, currently hosted by Judy Stephens, Ellie Pyle, and Angélique Roché, has been a perennial critical hit, running for over five years and 200 episodes. Between discussing feminism and representation in the Marvel universe, the publication of Super Visible: The Story of the Women of Marvel takes an even deeper dive and expands upon those conversations with vivid illustrations, and new, comprehensive material.

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.

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.”

Special credit must go to Kari Skogland, the director, Marcus Spellman, the writer, Jeff Ford, the picture editor and the inimitable Marvel team, spearheaded by the legendary Kevin Feige.
