  • Red Circle miniseries

    I found an article over at Newsarama where jms talks about his idea for Brave and the Bold spinning over into this miniseries.

    Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.

    Talked to someone last who knows someone involved with one of the JMS/Red Circle books (Being circumspect so as to not get anyone in trouble) and he told me that the pencilled art work he saw, a couple of pages worth, looked spectacular. Though my friend, and myself, have some reservations as to who will be inking the pencils.

          If you haven't already added Joe to your creator list, you can add Red Circle to your list here and get reminded when they hit the local shops.



          Of the 4 I'm most anticipating The Shield cause Joe can really turn general views on patriotism on their head to show true patriotism as we all know. And The Web is looking neat for a combination of Batman and Spider-man.

                Talked with Tom Derrenick, the artist on The Hangman, today at Wizard World Philly and got to look at photocopies of about 6 to 8 pages of the pencilled artwork from the issue. Really exciting, dynamic stuff.

                  Ongoing Strips

                  It seems that all four of the characters will be spun out post-mini, in the form of a pair of monthly co-feature comics - Shield/Inferno & Web/Hangman, both starting in September.

                  Newsarama has interviews with the writers for the former (Eric Trautmann and Brandon Jerwa) and the artists for the latter (Roger Robinson and Tom Derenick). They're careful about spoilers for the mini, but there's still some interesting general information.

                  The Web actually looks a lot better than I was expecting, even if Hangman appears to hail from the original Planet of the Apes!

                    Reviving this thread to remind folks that the first of the Red Circle mini is due out this week. IIRC, there should be one each Wednesday this month.

                      Yep, picked up "Hangman" about an hour ago.

                      Haven't had a chance to read it, as I'm at work now.

                        Tpb?

                        Yay! Red Circle's out! finally more new JMS! But one thing plagues my mind and I desire your opinions please. Will it be collected into a graphic novel? I would VERY much desire to have just a nice coffee table hardbound version, rather than this issue to issue stuff. I subscribed to Thor (I know, Marvel, not DC) and they were releasing trades practically at the same time. What's DC's track record on this sort of thing? am I safe just waiting??

                          Wish I could answer, PlasmaBoy. I can't wait and always buy the individual issues. One thing that Dan Didio said at Comic-Con last month, though, was that the trades are coming out somewhat later these days in order to help sales of the floppies.

                          So does anybody have any comments about the Hangman issue? I liked it. The only thing I kind of wished for was that he'd had to do more to determine the guilt or innocence of the people he saved in the present day. I think that would be cooler than a straight rescue like we saw.

                          Looking forward to Inferno.

                            Picked up the first two, but am holding off on reading them until I get all four issues.

                            I did flip through "Hangman" a bit and was a little disappointed. After having a chance to see some of Tom Derrenick's penciled pages, I think the inker layed on the inks a bit heavy...

                              I tend to agree. I've just finished the first three and I was hugely unimpressed with the art. With Inferno in particular, the inking was so muddy I actually had trouble following the story. Truthfully, I picked up these issues because JMS had written them but I don't see myself picking up any of them beyond this introduction.
