Twisted Twins Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska

A new adaptation of Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada‘s ’90s comic Painkiller Jane is on the way, and a director for the project has been chosen. Directors, in fact.

The Twisted Twins, Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska, will direct the adaptation, which follows a cop who goes undercover and ends up almost dead. But instead of dying, she develops new abilities—regenerative abilities that allow her to take an insane amount of damage and heal quickly—and uses them to become the vigilante known as Painkiller Jane.

Forager cover by Darwin CookeForager
Written by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti
Illustrated by Steven Cummings
Colored by Challenging Studios
Lettered by Bill Tortolini
Cover by Darwin Cooke
PaperFilms
Release Date: January 2014
Cover Price: $6.99 (Digital)

Humans are a curious species. We continually look to the stars and wonder what else might be out there. In Forager, a broken family not only ponders this concept, but is thrust into a situation that forces them to discover the answer. From Jimmy Palmiotti‘s production company, PaperFilms, comes an extraordinary graphic novel that delves into the heart of human nature and our longing for change and knowledge.

When a young, troubled married couple take their six year-old daughter, Ellie, on an outer-space cruise ship in hopes of working on their relationship as a family, Ellie begins to hear peculiar “singing” within her head. As a massive alien spacecraft — the first new race that humanity has ever encountered — hovers above the cruise ship, all on board soon realize that Ellie has become the vessel for the aliens to speak through. The events that proceed span almost a millennium as a handpicked crew of Earth’s finest travel galaxies in search of a viable new habitat.

Denver cover banner

You want to give me the chance to interview Jimmy Palmiotti? Um, how about “Hell, yeah!” That’s pretty much what went through my head when GoD’s Dave3 sent me the email about it last week.

I knew going in that the point was to talk about the comics creator’s current Kickstarter campaign for his graphic novel Denver, but I found it difficult to resist asking a few non-comic questions, too. Have you ever wondered if Palmiotti is secretly a Backstreet Boys fan? Or maybe if he ever dreamed of being an X-Wing pilot? I wonder these things, too! But unfortunately, I didn’t inquire about that. So what did I ask? Well, you’ll just have to keep on reading to find out. But I bet he did want to fly an X-Wing, just saying…

Kickstarter Spotlight: Jimmy Palmiotti’s ‘Denver’ A Graphic Novel For Mature Audiences

Kickstarter Spotlight: Denver

If you are like me and you see Jimmy Palmiotti‘s name, you probably get excited and start thinking of all the great comics he’s written over the years. Because, let’s be honest, the dude kicks major ass at everything he does. So when I saw that his newest Kickstarter campaign Denver was up and running, I almost immediately jumped at the chance to write it up. This is an exclusive to Kickstarter project, meaning it will only be available to backers of this campaign. And with a story like this one, it’s surely going to be one of the year’s best graphic novels. It’s all about mankind after a disaster, but it’s not your typical post-apocalyptic story…it’s far more than that.

The premise of this graphic novel is that a meteor has struck the Earth and has caused a shift in water levels. Well, actually, the vast majority of land sank beneath the seas and what little land is left is fiercely defended. That’s where our buddy Max Flynn comes in. He’s part of the group that monitors and protects the city (city state) of Denver from anything and anyone going in or out. With a finite amount of land mass, it stands to reason that only a certain quantity of people can be sustained. Armed with that knowledge, Max and the rest of the Coast Border Guards are tasked with controlling the flux of wanderers and marauders who seek entrance. This story is all about Max and how he is forced to reassess his worldview and the realization that not everything is as he thought. Sounds intriguing, yes? I would be remiss if I didn’t also say that this is a mature graphic novel and most likely not suitable for children.

Harley Quinn #1 Cover Preview

This week marks the release of Harley Quinn #1, an ongoing series featuring the titular star from DC Comics as part of The New 52. While Harley is currently part of two team books already – Suicide Squad and Injustice: Gods Among Us – her solo book will focus on her new life as a resident of New York City and the day-to-day escapades she finds herself in.

The series is being written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner (Conner will also provide the cover art) and features art by newcomer Chad Hardin. In an interview with USA Today, Conner noted that “even though it’s still fairly early, it is beginning to look like Looney Tunes meets a Quentin Tarantino movie” which sounds quite promising for those who are a fan of Ms. Quinzel.

Check out a preview here below of Harley Quinn #1.
