i n d i e EDGE GENE LUEN yang GENE LUEN yang GENE LUEN yang GENE LUEN yang GENE LUEN yang GENE LUEN yang

This month’s featured creator is…

GENE LUEN YANG Gene Luen Yang began drawing comics when he was still in elementary school. After many years of perfecting his skills, he received a Xeric Grant for his first published work, and followed that up with a Printz Award for American Born Chinese and Eisner Awards for American Born Chinese and The Eternal Smile. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and teaches high school math and computer science.

Recent & Classic Works from Gene Luen Yang…

I’m Gene Yang and I’ve been reading, writing, and drawing comics since the fifth grade. I took a short break in junior high because a friend of mine told me that I’d never get a girlfriend if I kept reading comics, but by high school I realized that I wasn’t going to get a girlfriend anyway. Besides, comic books are so awesome that they’re worth the risk of living out the rest of your days in crushing, lonesome solitude…

Gene, what are you reading?

PINOCCHIO: VAMPIRE SLAYER VOLUME 1 (Amaze Ink/Slave Labor Graphics / JUL090644) How can you NOT love a wooden boy who grows vampire-killing stakes in the middle of his face? From Van Jensen and Dusty Higgins.

American Born Chinese GN (JUN078085) The Eternal Smile GN (MAR094260) Level Up GN (See Page 289!)

KING CITY (Image Comics/Tokyopop) I’m not really sure why Brandon Graham doesn’t yet have a cult that follows him around worshipping his every brushstroke… HEREVILLE: HOW MIRKA GOT HER SWORD HC (Amulet Books / AUG100739) My seven-year-old son stole this graphic novel by Barry Deutsch from me and won’t give it back. That’s how awesome it is!

THE MOON RISES IN BENDIS & MALEEV’S MOON KNIGHT #1 Night descends upon the concrete canyons of New York. Traffic clogs the Manhattan streets. In the distance, the trill of police sirens is heard. Evil is afoot in the city, and it will take the calling of a special man with a unique calling to combat it — Moon Knight! In his life, Marc Spector has been many things — a boxer, a Marine, a CIA spook, a gun for hire. His life has been dedicated to inflicting pain and punishment, even death, upon those whose path he crosses. The discovery of an ancient Egyptian temple during his mercenary days set his life on a different path — as the living avatar of the Egyptian god Khonshu. With a renewed purpose in life, Spector believes he can redeem his life and right his karmic balance by avenging the wronged and the downtrodden as a super-hero, Moon Knight. Basing himself in New York, and taking on several different identities, such as millionaire industrialist Steven Grant and taxi driver Jack Lockley, to put his old mercenary life behind him, Moon Knight has battled evil in the concrete canyons — while also battling the voices of Grant, Lockley, and Khonshu within his mind. This May, Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev chronicle a new chapter in the life of Marc Spector, Moon Knight. Everything you think you about Moon Knight, everything you think possible for Marc Spector, will be challenged. The team behind Spider-Woman and Scarlet promise to do for Moon Knight what they did on their award-winning run on Daredevil — take the character, take him apart, and redefine him as never before! All the mysteries, all the fractured psychology, everything that makes Marc Spector and Moon Knight tick — all of it will be laid bare when Bendis and Maleev are through! The moon rises for Marc Spector this May in Moon Knight #1, and a light will shine on Manhattan’s criminal underworld! Moon Knight #1 also marks the debut of Marvel’s “Big Shots” initiative, three new series featuring three of Marvel’s most promising and most important characters as they take their rightful place among the top tier of Marvel heroes. Don’t miss out on the lunar dawn with Moon Knight!

ENTRUST YOUR COLLECTION TO THE OVERSTREET COMIC BOOK PRICE GUIDE How much is that old comic book worth? When did this particular character first appear? These are questions that comic book fans have long asked — at conventions, in comic shops, even in private. Conventions with their array of dealers can help with the former, Wikipedia is a handy source for the latter, but neither are convenient — and Wikipedia, exhaustive as it is, isn’t conducive to casual discovery of comics knowledge. One book, though, answers every question you may have — The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, now entering its 41st edition. For over four decades, Robert Overstreet and his team of dealers and scholars have studied comic books, and the wealth of experience they bring is on the page. Considered authoritative and definitive by dealers and fans around the  GEMSTONE PUBLISHING, Page 290 world, The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide comes with  HARDCOVER, $35.00 all the information you need — prices, first appearances,  SOFTCOVER, $29.95 variants, and much, much more. For this 41st edition, The Overstreet Price Guide comes with two spectacular covers — The Mighty Thor by legendary creator Walter Simonson, and the powerhouse team of Supergirl and Batgirl by one of today’s most acclaimed artists, Amanda Connor — and features an amazing line-up of articles on the history of the comic industry and the excitement of comic collecting. Whether you’re just starting out on the hobby of collecting comics or you’re a long-time reader and fan, the new Overstreet has everything you need to get the most out of your hobby. Pick yours up this spring!

A DEMONIC HALF-BREED BATTLES AGAINST DARKNESS IN IMAGE’S NEW SERIES No one does cosmic in comic books better than Jim Starlin. The mastermind behind star-spanning epics like Epic Comics’ Dreadstar, Marvel Comics’ The Infinity Gauntlet, or DC Comics’ Cosmic Odyssey, Starlin has made a career of telling stories that encompass all of time and space, yet with characters that remain grounded and relatable. In the early 1990s, Starlin began a science-fiction trilogy at Malibu Comics, ‘Breed, centered on a mysterious man named Raymond Stoner. Fifteen years later, Starlin returns to ‘Breed with the seven-part ‘Breed III #1, which tells the third and final chapter of the saga! An orphan taken in by a Vietnam veteran in the 1970s, Raymond Stoner manifested strange and inhuman powers. He was not human at all, but actually the child of a demon, and given a choice between following his human upbringing or his father’s demonic path, Raymond chose to fight the very things that created him. ‘Breed III picks up where the previous series (collected edition offered this month) left off, but readers need not be familiar with the original series, as this series makes an ideal jumping on point for Raymond’s battles against the forces of darkness and other ‘Breeds like him — and the destiny that awaits him. Starlin writes and draws a project that is clearly near and dear to his heart in ‘Breed III. Raymond Stoner may not be human, but his story is all too familiar, the story of a man finding his place in a hostile universe. Starlin excels at making the unreal understandable, and that skill serves him well on ‘Breed III, com-

CELEBRATE A POPULAR ART FORM WITH PREVIEWS‘ “MANGA MONTH” This month, PREVIEWS celebrates “Manga Month,” a time when fans of the art form can celebrate with a multitude of comics, graphic novels, trade paperbacks and more, while newcomers to manga can discover what makes manga so special! Over the past few decades, manga has gone from a little-known form of Asian entertainment to a worldwide, literary phenomenon, crossing over into the mainstream and influencing everything from comic books & movies to video games & fashion. Imported largely from Japan, China and Korea, the style has enthralled readers of all ages, genders and economic backgrounds, and American consumers in particular have embraced manga for its diversity, creativity and raw energy. Like comic books, TV and movies, manga is visually dynamic, and it shares with those mediums the ability to explore a wide variety of genres. Consumers can choose from horror, humor, romance, sci-fi, fantasy, urban action and even sports, all told with the verve and vitality that has made manga the international blockbuster it is! PREVIEWS’ Manga Month focuses on the publishers and creators that fuel readers’ enthusiasm for the Asian-influenced art form.

DST’S DRACULA MINIMATES WANT TO SUCK YOUR BLOOD!

Page 18

High in the Carapthian Mountains, the forbidding castle of Count Dracula is the destination of London solicitor Jonathan Harker. The man that Harker believes is a minor and obscure member of the Romanian aristocracy is, in fact, an immortal vampire, and Harker has sent the creature on its way to London where it can prey upon the populace! In 1931, Universal Studios brought Bram Stoker’s Dracula to the silver screen, starring Bela Lugosi, and this spring Diamond Select Toys gives the horror film’s characters a makeover for the Universal Monsters Dracula Minimates Box Set! Unchain the vampire Dracula, and let him prey upon your unsuspecting Minimate collection!

THE IRON MAN MUSEUM STATUE IS TRULY CLASSIC

388 DC HEROES WAVE 17 FIGURES

The DC Universe was threatened when Nekron controlled death itself by raising the dead as the Black Lantern Corps in the best-selling miniseries Blackest Night. Mattel’s DC Heroes Wave 17 Figures feature many of the heroes and villains of Blackest Night as 7” tall figures, including Orange Lantern Lex Luthor, Yellow Lantern Scarecrow, White Lantern Hal Jordan, Violet Lantern Wonder Woman, Blue Lantern Flash, and Indigo Lantern Atom, and each figure comes with a bonus piece to build a 9” tall Anti-Monitor figure. Collect them all, and experience your own Blackest Night with the new DC Heroes figures!

His body damaged, his spirit unbroken, industrialist Tony Stark turned to his specialty — technology — to create a high-tech suit of armor. As Iron Man, he has fought for decades to protect the Earth from myriad threats and to prevent weapons technology from falling into dangerous hands. Bowen Designs brings to life the armored Avenger with their Iron Man Classic Museum Statue. This impressive 13 1/2” tall statue, sculpted by Khurrum Alavi, will inspire anyone with the heroism and power of Iron Man!

THE PANDORICA OPENS FOR A NEW SERIES OF DOCTOR WHO FIGURES!

For nearly fifty years, the Doctor has traveled through time and space in his semi-reliable TARDIS. His eleventh incarnation, finally trapped by an alliance of his enemies, was trapped within a temporal prison, the Pandorica. For Underground Toys’ latest series of Doctor Who action figures, the characters of the fifth season of Doctor Who are paired with a Doctor Who audiobook and a CD tray. Fans who collect all six, including the Doctor, Amy, a zombied Cyberman, and a Silurian warrior, can build their own cubical artifact with the Doctor Who: Pandorica Action Figure & CD Collection figures. Trap the Doctor within the Pandorica, and the universe may well end!

ROCK THE NIGHT AWAY WITH NECA’S IGGY POP ACTION FIGURE

Rock history is filled with innovative musicians who push the boundaries, write compelling tunes, and forge a stage persona that leaves an impression that spans decade. Iggy Pop is one such innovator. Beginning his career in the 1960s, Iggy Pop has spanned the genres of protopunk, garage rock, hard rock, and glam rock, and he is as famous as a songwriter for others as he is for his own music. This legendary musical figure is brought to life by NECA as the Iggy Pop 7-Inch Action Figure, which immortalizes this musician for all time. Queue up some Iggy Pop in iTunes, and rock the night away with the 7” Iggy Pop!

Nixon!

Gangsters, kidnappers, maniacal killers, and thugs of all stripes had their lurid stories recounted in Crime Does Not Pay! Featuring thrilling, brutal tales and disturbing, despicable characters, Crime Does Not Pay enthralled a nation and was the most popular comic book of its time. The series was a favorite target of Dr. Fredric Wertham and other censors and is partially responsible for the creation of the Comics Code Authority—yet it was also an inspiration for Harvey Kurtzman’s reality-based EC Comics. See why this series was both revered and reviled in this unique “best of” primer!

➤ Crime Does Not Pay editor Bob Wood brutally murdered his girlfriend and was later murdered himself! This fascinating sidebar is detailed in an essay by cartoonist, historian, and co-editor Denis Kitchen.

➤ Contains a selection of stories from across the series’ run in the 1940s, a new cover, an illustrated essay, and an introduction.

➤ All-new crime-inspired cover artist Pete Poplaski, with colors by Bernie Mireault. Not final cover.

Featured this month is the fourth and final figure from Woody’s Roundup,, Stinky Pete the prospector.

Studio describe as “primitive but charming.”

cElEbRATIng 25 YEARS JIM SHooTER Mike Richardson is, of course, Master and Commander of Dark Horse. When he’s in New York, or we’re at a convention somewhere, often we’ll have a cup of coffee and talk. Sometimes there’s business to discuss, now that I’m redeveloping the Dell/Gold Key characters for Dark Horse, but that never takes long. Mike is just, honorable, and generous. I’m smart enough to agree with a just, honorable, and generous man. We usually end up talking old war stories for a while. We’ve both been in and around this business for decades. From the outside, I guess it looks like the whole thing is a lark. How could making comics not be fun from soup to nuts?! A party! Sad to say, even in comics there are the occasional weasels, jerks, egomaniacs, and other party poopers. I marvel at his horror stories, and he marvels at mine. But mostly, we talk about comic books. The ones we loved growing up, the ones we love now, the things that we can do . . . ! Ideas! Stories! Characters! It’s like we’re suddenly both kids again, about to steal a couple of tablecloths, tie them around our necks, and patrol the city! A certain notable Daredevil contributor once told me he spent a night prowling the rooftops of Hell’s Kitchen to see what it would be like. When Mike and I get on a roll talking, that seems so reasonable . . . ! When I worked for Marvel Comics, the Big Bosses there had never so much as opened a comic book. The promotions VP, who mostly handled costumedcharacter appearances and the White House Easter Egg Roll, once asked me how many stories were in each comic book. A licensing VP once asked me if we owned Wonder Woman. No, that’s DC. Speaking of DC, once, at an industry social function, one of their Big Shots asked me what “inking” was. That was long ago. Upper-management types at those houses probably care now. Especially now that the Giant Corporate Parent Companies have taken a direct hand. Dunno. This I do know. Mike loves comics. Dark Horse loves comics. So do I. —Jim Shooter

It’s been a year since The Joker took over Arkham, and Gotham is still trying to get back to normal in this all-new, 5-issue miniseries bridging the gap between the hit videogame Batman: Arkham Asylum and the exciting, upcoming sequel, Batman: Arkham City! And now, an attack by a pair of super-powered twins increases the threat level and triggers Gotham City’s new mayor to call for drastic measures. In issue #2, amid the protests of both human rights groups and Bruce Wayne, a new Arkham rises. The Joker is scheduled to be its first inmate, but not if Harley Quinn has anything to say about it. Meanwhile, Batman’s suspicions lead him to investigate just who is really behind this new, more sprawling asylum and what their motivations might be. Retailers, please note: Issue #1 will ship with two covers. Please see the Previews Order Form for more information.

Now, for the first time, DC Comics collects all of Kirby’s many stories from the pages of HOUSE OF MYSTERY, HOUSE OF SECRETS, TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED, MY GREATEST ADVENTURE, ALL-STAR WESTERN, ADVENTURE COMICS, WORLD’S FINEST COMICS, as well as a trio of 1940s stories from REAL FACT COMICS.

“Absolutely riveting . . . Maus, move over; a sa great graphic novel, you’ve met your match.” — BOOKLIST “Complex, meticulously drawn . . . a gripping way to revisit those lurid days.” — THE WASHINGTON POST The groundbreaking, award-winning semiautobiographical graphic novel returns in a new edition featuring an introduction by Alison Bechdel, award winning author of Fun Home. In the 1960s American South, a young gas-station attendant named Toland Polk is rejected from the Army draft for admitting “homosexual tendencies,” and falls in with a close-knit group of young locals yearning to break from the conformity of their hometown through civil rights activism, folk music and upstart communality of race-mixing, gay-friendly nightclubs. Toland’s story is both deeply personal and epic in scope, as his search for identity plays out against the brutal fight over segregation, an unplanned pregnancy and small-town bigotry, aided by an unforgettable supporting cast.

MAY 4 32 PAGES / FC $1.00 “ADRENALINE” It’s been over 70 years since the world first began its research into creating a Super Soldier. In 2011, the United States successfully created not one, but two. The latest in US Black Ops, Project Red Spike discovered that through the manipulation and regulation of the adrenal glands the super soldier was one step closer. The first (surviving) successes of the program, two close friends Matt Cutler and Greg Dane, have been proven on the field to be everything that was wanting in the program. But what happens when an adrenaline regulator malfunctions? What happens should one man refuse to follow orders if he finds out the true price they had to pay for these abilities and goes AWOL? How do we stop him? What price becomes too high?

MANGA month MANGA MONTH 2011

M

anga Month is here again; a time for us to celebrate one of the most popular forms of graphic storytelling around the world. Manga fandom in the U.S. started years ago when groups of fans began translating and sharing comics from Japan, a practice that continues to this day. Of course, for those who can patiently wait for the official translations, we have dozens and dozens of new and classic manga volumes offered this and every month! So, if you’re new to the manga format, or are an old pro looking for the next big thing, then you’ve come to the right place.

DRAWN & QUARTERLY CONSTRUCTIVE ABANDONMENT HC (W/A) Michael Dumontier, Neil Farber Constructive Abandonment is a series of small paintings featuring surreal vignettes with animals and children weighed down by the pressures of life. With absurdly comedic interactions, the text varies from straightforward to even more abstract and nonsensical than the images that it accompanies. The paintings reference child’s play or literature and others are seemingly without reference, completely untethered. Pages that could be forgettable one-liners become investigations into intellect and our ability to draw correlations between contradictory elements in a single image.

Maybe you missed this when it came out in limited edition hardcover. If you did, you should be sad — that book was amazing! If you didn’t know you had missed out, don’t worry, because now it’s available in paperback! John Cassaday has drawn what acclaimed French creator Fabien Nury conceived: ancient proto-vampires manipulating the Axis and the Allies of World War II on a world-wide scale in an intricate web of intrigue and ancient Rumanian horror.This power house team of stunning art and spiraling story take the tired old vampire legend and spin it on its head.What if a vampire was a spirit inhabiting a host body—and any living creature could be controlled so long as it carried even one drop of the demon-tainted blood? Nury and Cassaday plunge the reader into the nuanced realm of WWII espionage. Rival camps within the Nazi party and corrupted officials within the Allies’ ranks—anyone and anything could house the beast—or beasts.Two blood-born terrors ride the murderous intents of men, guiding the war to a climatic confrontation. ~Sarah Martinez See PREVIEWS page 294

LOUIS RIEL: A COMIC STRIP BIOGRAPHY TP (NEW PRINTING) (W/A/C) Chester Brown Chester Brown reinvents the comic book medium to create the critically acclaimed historical biography Louis Riel, winning the Harvey Awards for best writing and best graphic novel for his compelling, meticulous, and dispassionate retelling of the charismatic, and perhaps insane, nineteenth-century Metis leader. Brown cooly documents with dramatic subtlety the violent rebellion on the Canadian prairie led by Riel, who some regard a martyr who died in the name freedom, while others consider him a treacherous murderer.

Complete with a surprise ending, Paying For It provides endless debate and conversation about sex work and will be the most talkedabout graphic novel of 2011.

It’s probably natural to assume that there would be a flavor of sensationalism to a story that examines soliciting sex workers.The world’s oldest profession tends to travel hand-in-hand with our oldest taboos and fascinations.What makes Chester Brown’s Paying For It compelling, though, is its frankness and rationality. Deliberately (through craft) and incidentally (through temperament), Brown’s newest autobiographical work expresses what some would consider an extreme stance in moderate, even-handed terms. Brown relates his experiences as a “john” in Canada, where certain forms of prostitution were legal at the time of his encounters. Bolstered by a fleet of appendices, Paying For It documents the self-conscious trial-and-error surrounding any new social or business interaction. It also devotes ample space to Brown’s open debates with friends (and fellow cartoonists) regarding his decision to pay for sex. Paying For It sidesteps scandal, offering a personal and almost journalistic take on a topic we rarely see clearly. Pick up this book and prepare to be fascinated by its disarmingly direct approach. ~Kate Henning See PREVIEWS page 284

Dynamite Entertainment Way back in July, Dynamite announced that Alex Ross and Kurt Busiek would be collaborating on a project for the first time in 17 years. If that alone didn’t whet the appetite of comic fans worldwide, then the title certainly did — Kirby: Genesis. The prospect of two modern day legends re-teaming to create a unique universe based on the creations of one of the most iconic creators of all-time is a feast for the imagination. Anticipation has steadily built over the last five months and Dynamite has finally revealed that issue #0 of the series will ship this May. Recent interviews with Ross and Busiek have only further piqued my interest as both creators have described the painstaking detail they’ve devoted to constructing the foundation of this universe.This #0 issue will provide readers with a prelude to the upcoming series and will offer a must-read look at the making of the series. Priced at only $1.00, Kirby: Genesis #0 collects Kirby research compiled by Busiek and Ross, upcoming pages to issue #1, plus a ton of Alex Ross design work for the series. Any f an of Ross, Busiek, or the King himself should be in line to pick this up in May! ~Tim Lenaghan See PREVIEWS page 263

EAGLE: THE ORIGINAL ADVENTURES VOLUME 1 TP Moonstone Books When you think about the evolution of modern independent comics you inevitably have look back at the groundbreaking projects that influenced them. Back in the ‘80s when black and white indie comics were on the cutting edge of the comics scene one series stood out to me as a young impressionable fan. Eagle was a fresh new story that combined kinetic action art and incorporated some of the best aspects of storytelling masters such as Will Eisner.The characters and action were so different from what I was reading out of Marvel and DC at the time that I was instantly hooked on the little indie that could. In the many years between then and now I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Neil Vokes, Rich Rankin, and Jack Herman and hearing in person the passion and energy they channeled into this early creation. After being out of print for over two decades there are several generations of comic fans waiting to be introduced to this classic series. The Original Adventures reprints the first six issue story arc and includes great extras like a preview of the new Eagle series in development, original cover galleries, character & concept sketches, and editorial from the creative team that developed this pioneering indie title. Fans of classic comic books and good old fashioned storytelling should make this required reading for a master’s class on Comics History 101. ~Jim Kuhoric See PREVIEWS page 298

HONEY WEST: ANNE FRANCIS COMMEMORATIVE EDITION Moonstone Books I’m a big fan of 60’s spies, be it novels, movies, or television shows. Outside of The Avengers and The Man from UNCLE, one of my must-watch shows was Honey West starring the blonde personification of G.G. Fickling’s character. Anne Francis from Forbidden Planet’s Altaira to Riptide’s Mama Jo commanded attention as a glamour queen and as an actress. In Moonstone’s Honey West:Anne Francis Commemorative Edition, the actress is remembered for her starring role as super sleuth and femme fatale Honey West. In this reprint of the sold out issues #1 and 2, writer Trina Robbins and artist Cynthia Martin do an excellent job of capturing the essence of Francis, Honey, and the sixties. The dialogue rings with that 60s tone while the art blends today’s techniques with 60s pop art sensibility.This is a comic I’m glad to add to my collection of comics and DVD next to my Gold Key Steed & Peel, The Man from UNCLE, and the Gold Key HoneyWest comic. Having lost too many friends and family to cancer, I appreciate that Moonstone is donating part of their revenue for every American Cancer Society edition they sell. ~Steve Leaf See PREVIEWS page 298

One day, after being kicked out of college, four angels visit him, and they get Dennis back to where his family wanted him to be — a college grad uate and accepted into Medical School. But is this what Dennis really wants for himself? Level Up is an amazing book.What looks like a simple tale about a gamer turns into something deeper. Once you pick it up and enter Dennis’ life, you won’t put it down until you’re done! ~George Powell See PREVIEWS page 289

ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF HELL: AN INVASION MANUAL FOR DEMONS SC (W) Martin Olson (A) Tony Millionaire, Mahendra Singh A tour de force of darkness, Encyclopaedia of Hell is a manual of Earth written by Lord Satan for his invading hordes of demons. Since the customs of humanity are inconceivably alien to demons, Satan wrote this strangely poetic military handbook for the enlightenment and edification of his armies. A masterpiece expressing Satan’s hatred for humanity and himself, the Encyclopaedia includes “Techniques of Stalking and Eating Humans,” “Methods of Canning Human Pus,” and “Dicing and Slicing Orphaned Children.” Martin Olson’s savage wit provides the firepower for a preposterous literary feat unaccomplished since Mark Twain passed — channeling the real voice of Satan.

tokidoki is a happy world. It is a cute and playful, pure yet provocative and sophisticated world that I imagine, live, and dream of. tokidoki means “sometimes” in Japanese. I chose a Japanese word because I love Japan. I love everything from the ultra-modern happy face of Shibuya to the serious magic silence of Kyoto. I chose “sometimes,“ because everyone waits for moments that change one’s destiny… by chance or by meeting a new person. tokidoki is the hope, the hidden energy that everyone has inside, giving us the strength to face a new day and dream about something positive that something magical will happen to us. Ciao, my name is Simone Legno. Hail Excelsior, True Believer, with the fourth season of high-fashion apparel pairing classic Marvel characters with the cheerfulness of the tokidoki universe comes your way in 2011! Acclaimed artist Simone Legno brings his unique design aesthetic to the Marvel Universe with his Fall 2011 collection, giving the House of Ideas a hip and hot makeover for the 21st-century. Having worked previously for clients such as LeSportSac, Sanrio, Medicom, Volkswagen, and MTV, Simone now brings his art to bear on the House of Ideas. Whether it’s a Iron Man hanging out with a troop of lovestruck monkeys, Wolverine sharing a corndog with a hooded admirer, or an angry Thor caught in the grip of his berserker’s rage, tokidoki x Marvel puts a new, fun spin oncontinues to brings the fun to Marvel’s classic, beloved characters. Smash it up as The Fall 2011 collection ships to customers beginning in July.

VIDEO GAMES POP CULTURE BELA LUGOSI AS BROADWAY’S DRACULA MODEL KIT

MARCH 2011

Bram Stoker’s classic horror novel Dracula inspired a generation of artists, writers, and thespians.

The play proved so successful, and Lugosi’s take on the role so influential, that when Dracula was brought to the screen by Universal in 1931, only Lugosi could essay the role of Count Dracula, and his performance would inspire generations. This stunning 1/8-scale styrene model kit recreates Lugosi’s interpretation of Dracula from the Broadway play. Needs paint and glue for final assembly. Recommended for experienced modelers.

Meanwhile, the Axis’ Special Ops Grenadiers are deadly squads formed in response to recent devastating losses at Stalingrad. The Sturmgrenadiere Sniper Squad, secretly trained by the Blutkreuz Korps in the heart of the Black Forest, use a highly specialized weapon: the Sniper Gewehr. The Sturmgrenadiere Observer Squad (also known as Beobachter), like their Allied counterpart, is adept at collecting the coordinates needed to guide a devastating artillery strike.

STRIKE EAGLE BOARD GAME The year is 1920. WWI has ended, but the battle for Europe has just begun. Trotsky, Lenin and Stalin plan to spread the workers’ revolution by blasting through Poland in order to support the growing communist movements in Germany, France and Britain. Only the armies of Poland stand in the way of the Bolshevik tide... Strike of the Eagle is a strategy game that simulates the tenseness of the Polish-Soviet War of 1920. This war featured a return of sweeping cavalry attacks combined with new weaponry innovations such as planes, tanks and armored cars. Gone was the static trench warfare of WWI where front line changes were measured in yards. Instead, the gains of this war’s campaigns were measured in hundreds of miles from Kiev and beyond Minsk in the east, to Warsaw and the German border in the west. Strike of the Eagle is the first game in the new Fog of War series, which covers pivotal wars of different eras, allowing players to relive and learn about the struggles that took place. The heart of this unique series lies in players placing secret orders on the map during each turn to bluff, mislead, misdirect and outplay their opponents! The orders are then revealed and executed by the player’s armies that are represented by wooden blocks of Brigade and Division strength forces of between 1500 to 8000 men. The exact composition of a player’s forces is kept hidden from their opponent until battle is engaged.

SOUNDTRACKS

The 1950s was dubbed “the decade of possibilities,” the frontiers of space became the new wild west as authors, film directors and musicians alike became inspired by the likelihood of man exploring space. As early as 1951, 20th Century Fox commissioned The Day The Earth Stood Still, the film that according to the posters “started it all.” The soundtrack would be as important to the film’s overall impact as any other facet of the production. Bought in was seasoned movie score composer Bernard Herrmann, famed for his work with Orson Welles. Disc 2 of this set features the work of Louis & Bebe Barron, famed for their pioneering work in the electronic field. MGM bought them in to write the music for their ambitious 1956 production The Forbidden Planet, and in so doing were rewarded with a score that to this day sounds futuristic and eminently listenable.

APOLLO 18 A quintessential Cold War story, Apollo 18 casts light on the covert and undocumented lunar mission that officially “never happened.” Timur Bekmambetov (Day Watch, Night Watch), hired by Russia to shoot a documentary about the Russian space station, recently came across footage in its space archives that bolsters the idea that an Apollo 18 mission did, in fact, take place, and reveals startling evidence of extraterrestrial life forms. This actual footage will be part of Apollo 18, a paranormal thriller that will interpolate fact and fiction. (C: 1-1-4) NOTE: Available only within the United States and U.S. Territories.
