The Quarter Bin

Videos, Reviews, and Previews For Comic Fans

Had enough of the panels yet? I hope not, cause we’re not even close to being done. Right now TheQuarterbin is bringing you all the action live from the TOP COW panel… provided my computer battery holds out! Hit the jump for more from Mel Caylo, Lee Moder, Ron Marz, Nelson Blake II, and Rob Levine.

-Once again, a panel starts out with some technical difficulties. Does anything work in this place?

-First off: trailer for upcoming film Wanted. Angelina Jolie is hottttttt.

-TOP COW is looking for two new artists, if you’re interested. They are taking submissions.

-Pilot Season 2008 has begun. Six books, two spots on the TOP COW line-up, vote online to decide who wins.

-ALIBI is from the winner of Pilot Season 2007. About the perfect assassin and people trying to track him down.

-GENIUS is about Destiny, a girl who wants to take back her streets to make them safe for her friends and family. She “declares war to save the neighborhood… the art’s awesome. Knocks your socks off.” I’m intrigued.

-LADY PENDRAGON is the story of the sword being pulled from the stone… only it’s pulled by a woman, and takes place in the future.

-Next up is THE CORE, the story of a human trying to fit in where humans are not respected or liked. Comes out in July.

-TWILIGHT GUARDIAN is one of the Pilot Season books competing for a spot in the TOP COW line-up.

-URBAN MYTHS will also be out in July. A picture is shown of the Son of Medusa, who has to wear a mask so people won’t turn to stone when they look at him.

-WITCHBLADE #117 is out, Ron Marz talks about writing for it. He loves writing for it, and the editors have been good about letting him write the stories he wants to write. He wants to make it accessible for new readers, as well as longtime fans.

-Wanted movie stills. “In case you forgot Angelina Jolie was in the movie.” And don’t forget about the WANTED limited edition hardcover!

-Coming this summer: BROKEN TRINITY, which was teased with Top Cow’s Free Comic Book Day issue. It’s a crossover with three main issues and three tie-in issues (WITCHBLADE, ANGELUS, and THE DARKNESS). The main series will be oversized issues (no extra money, though). Written by Ron Marz. Nice, I enjoyed the preview enough to want to see where this one goes. “SOMEONE WILL DIE.” “And they won’t be revealed to be a Skrull.”

-New series launching in September: DRAGON PRINCE, written by Ron Marz. It’s a creator-owned book that started at DARK HORSE, where it never actually came out. So it came over to TOP COW with a new artist (Lee Moder), and now it’s off and running. Appropriate for all ages, but not written down or directed at kids. Contemporary fantasy, with a dragon and a prince.

-STARFALL is another creator-owned project that Mel describes as a mash-up of different genres: sci-fi, adventure, etc. Follows a female lead who is over 100 years old and is the galaxy’s greatest warrior. “There’s dinosaurs in it.” What?! Those are the magic words! I’m in! Dinosaurs!

-Witchblade film will start filming in September, first draft of the script is in but they’re not allowed to say who’s writing it. The lead role has not been cast yet.

-I ask if and when we can expect to hear more about a sequel to The Darkness game. A lot of vague not-denials and “we can’t talk about what may or may not be announced and what may or may not happen.” Ron: “We may or may not have answered that question.”

-All of the TOP COW properties are currently being optioned or shopped around for movie possibilities. Ron: “Go see Wanted a lot of times, that will help a lot.” Ha, I love him. Ron also says the Wanted movie will be really, really faithful to the book, despite the look of it being different.
