Below you’ll find the solicitations information and cover artwork for all of Dark Horse Comics comic book titles that were released on May 25, 2016. There are quite a few goodies on the list. Lobster Johnson and Death Follows are my picks of the week!
Going to the theater during the summer can become fairly overwhelming with the release of multiple superhero blockbusters. These powerhouse movies tend to take the spotlight away from the modest, character-driven films that grace the screens; however, it looks like IFC Midnight has managed to find a compelling and unique way to incorporate the use of superpowers into a small-scale, powerful family drama with One & Two — and it looks very promising.
You can check out the trailer for One & Two here below.
Syfy Channel’s Defiance returned last week for Season 2 following the premiere of Dominion, a new series based on the 2010 film Legion. Both series together made for a strong night of programming for Syfy with Dominion seeing a solid start. Compared to all ad-supported cable scripted drama series premieres year to date, Dominion ranks #4 in L+SD rating among both Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54, and #2 among Men 18-49 and Men 25-54. Kicking off the night at 8PM (ET/PT) with its Season 2 premiere, Defiance delivered 776K Adults 18-49 and 948K Adults 25-54, which is a solid return for basic cable.
Defiance was sold as a truly interactive experience when it premiered alongside a massively multilayer online video-game. Happenings in the game were supposed to effect the series. It appears though that the television series featuring genre favorite actress Julie Benz (Dexter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is outlasting the game. The series is set on Earth after a destructive battle with aliens. The world is now trying to rebuild with aliens and humans trying to live together.
Defiance is a multi-platform science fiction venture from SyFy, presenting a shared world through a MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) and a television series created by Rockne S. O’Bannon (Farscape), Kevin Murphy (Caprica), and Michael Taylor (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine). First airing in the spring of 2013 on SyFy, Defiance is set in 2046 and tells the tale of humanity’s struggle to adapt to a new world in which multiple alien races now inhabit Earth. When Joshua Nolan (Grant Bowler) and his adopted daughter Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas) settle in the town of Defiance — what used to be St. Louis — tensions between all races quickly begin to rise.
At New York Comic-Con this past weekend, Bowler, Leonidas, Jaime Murray (Stahma Tarr), Julie Benz (Mayor Amanda Rosewater), and producer Michael Nankin sat down with Geeks of Doom among other media outlets and shed some light onto the new season of Defiance which will begin airing in 2014.
Last month, we brought you news from SXSW for the Syfy Channel’s new TV series and video game combo Defiance. The television show premieres on Syfy on April 15, 2013 at 9/8c and stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene and Mia Kirshner, while the video game was released today, April 2.
For the Defiance video game, if your purchase it for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, or PC by April 15, 2013, you’ll get a $20 Amazon Instant Video credit good towards the TV series premiering online on April 16 through Amazon Instant Video streaming service.
