Today HA/HA and 2R Productions announced the video-on-demand (VOD) launch date for their New York Times Critics Pick documentary SAM NOW – directed by Reed Harkness – as June 6 on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and VUDU.
What do two film-obsessed brothers do to solve a family mystery? Using every video format imaginable, they make a movie as they travel thousands of miles looking for their missing mom. Stitching together 25 years of home videos and filling the gaps in the archive with play, SAM NOW is a mosaic of love, longing, and loss, as well as an attempt to overcome intergenerational trauma.
“I am excited that SAM NOW will be available on VOD,” states the film’s director Reed Harkness. “As a teen, I watched every independent film I could get my hands on from the local video store. I loved coming-of-age movies. I loved Truffaut and Apted. But nothing existed quite like what I really wanted to see, so over the next 25 years, I made this movie. It’s totally, exactly the film I’ve wanted to see. I hope that anyone who watches SAM NOW can find a piece of themselves within it.”
In May, Ryan North and Iban Coello will celebrate 700 awe-inspiring issues of Fantastic Four with a giant-sized throwdown against the team’s legendary archnemesis: Doctor Doom.
Making his first appearance in North and Coello’s run, Doom will attempt to use his unmatched expertise to fix the fatal misstep that kicked off the Fantastic Four’s new era. Still haunting the team and causing a dramatic rift between Marvel’s first family, readers are only just starting to put the pieces of the mystery together.
After it’s fully revealed later this month in Fantastic Four #4, the team will be reunited at last just in time for Doom to rock their world once more! The iconic villain will embark on an epic journey across space and time to reverse the damage that his most bitter foes have unleashed on the Marvel Universe. Will he be able to succeed where Reed Richards failed? Or will his meddling make matters far, far worse?
“I feel privileged to be writing the Fantastic Four at any time, honestly, but getting to have a big milestone issue happen on my watch is certainly lucky – and it’s an opportunity I didn’t want to waste,” North said. “A big anniversary issue like this demands a similarly big story, something meaningful, impactful, and memorable. And given that it’s a supersized issue with more room to play, everything aligned to do a story with the Fantastic Four’s most meaningful, impactful, memorable, and supersized villain: Doctor Doom. Doom demands nothing less than the biggest issue of the year being dedicated to him, and I dare not defy Doom. It’s a big twisty story that brings the Fantastic Four to their new home and views what’s happened to both families over the past year in a new light. The Fantastic Four are down, but not out, and Doom senses an opportunity…” Continue reading →

Thuso Mbedu will author a one-shot comic titled “NIOBE: SHE TRIBE” along with Stranger Comics’ president Sebastian A. Jones. It will be part of Stranger’s TALES OF ASUNDA series and will feature Niobe, the franchise’s star character, who was first introduced in “The Untamed: A Sinner’s Prayer.” Mbedu and Jones will work together in writing the Comic, set for release in spring of 2023.
Stranger Comics is known within the comic industry for its diverse heroes and championing BIPOC women including its franchise star NIOBE, as creators of worlds. TALES OF ASUNDA is an ongoing series in the expanding, interconnected world of Asunda, which is rich in culture and tradition with years of development. It celebrates many of its lead characters and backdrops in afro-fantasy inspired settings, but with emotional themes that resonate globally on a deeply human level.
NIOBE: SHE TRIBE will tackle the pros and cons of “tradition,” asking both character and reader if all traditions are good, to be followed as law, binding in mind, body, and spirit. If they are disputed, what are the motives? If they are flawed, how can they be resolved? And if traditions are changed, how can people accept and evolve?
Jones, who created the world of Asunda, said of Mbedu: “Upon meeting Thuso I knew I had to work with her. Her honesty and modest genius hold a well spring of magical and relatable stories that need to be told. When we started brainstorming for the ‘She Tribe’ comic, Thuso breathed new life into Niobe and the vulnerable character relationships with such thought and care. Thuso is a rare spirit who speaks of many lives lived, here and before, and I couldn’t be more excited to share with our fans what we’ve got in store for Niobe and Asunda.”
When Niobe learns of a tradition that a tribal chief is decided in a fight to the death she must choose between challenging and changing an ancient custom or remaining hidden from the world and her destiny.
