fight club 1 edit

We’ve known about the Fight Club 2 comic for some time, but your long wait will finally be ending on May 27th when Dark Horse will release the first issue in the 10-issue series written by Chuck Palahniuk and illustrated by Cameron Stewart.

However, you don’t have to wait that long to get your first look at it. Not only has Playboy revealed a six page preview, but another preview will be released in a free Comic Book Day issue on May 2.

Dark Horse included this snippet with the release:

Some imaginary friends never go away… Ten years after starting Project Mayhem, he lives a mundane life. A kid, a wife, pills to keep his destiny at bay. But it won’t last long; the wife has seen to that. The time has come…Rize or Die.

But even better than the preview pages, in my opinion, are the marketing materials that have been released. This includes a Fight Club themed “Emergency Landing” infographic and a Fight Club board game.

The board games rules are simple:

1) Roll a 6-sided die and advance accordingly.
2) Follow homework assignments where you land.
3) No matter who finishes first Tyler wins.
4) Tyler always wins.

This whole thing is gloriously insane and, based on the preview, I’m thinking there’s a lot more insanity to come.

Head after the break to see the (likely NSFW) preview, and other promo materials.

lucifer

You may have heard rumblings back in September of development on a new TV adaptation of Vertigo’s Lucifer created by Neil Gaiman, Mike Dringenberg, & Sam Kieth. That news was recently updated and a pilot deal has been made.

Californication creator and exec producer Tom Kapinos will be teaming up with Warner Brothers TV’s Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Sleepy Hollow co-creator Len Wiseman.

As far as the story goes, word is that the pilot finds Lucifer bored with being the King Of Hell, so he chucks it all to head to L.A. and help the cops punish criminals.

Yeah, its a police procedural. Ugh.

On the plus side, it’s Gaiman and Wiseman. But Fox isn’t the best when it comes to letting new series find their stride assuming it gets picked up.

Marvel has decided to take on the request for more female superheroes in a big way with A-Force.

The series, written by G. Willow Wilson and Marguerite Bennett and drawn by Jorge Molina, will star She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa and Nico Minoru as a new part of Marvel’s Secret Wars event. From USA Today:

In Arcadia — what Wilson describes as “this feminist paradise” — a familiar threat to Marvel fans arises again and because of it, the new team of A-Force is formed to be the superhero standard bearer.

Marvel gave her and editor Daniel Ketchum the “keys to the castle” and told them to pick their own team — the only caveat was it had to be all female characters, Wilson admits. “They’ve become very committed in the last couple of years to telling new stories, to gender diversity, to getting more voices out there so they said, ‘Here’s the roster. Go nuts.’ “

Marvel also released the first variant cover which is stunning.

Check it out after the break.

Penguins are cute. Judge Dredd is a badass. Combine the two and you have the cutest badass in the world. This is an 11.5 cm statue created by Blind Mouse Toys that has turned Judge Dredd into a penguin. He was designed by Daniel Balmforth and Steve Scholz, and painted by sculptor Joe Amaro to look perfectly adorable. He may be the law but he’s going to be hard not to hug.
