  • So many good titles in Dynamite Entertainment... what's next?

    Red Sonja, Army of Darkness, Darkman, Re-animator, Highlander even Xena!

    So good TV shows/movies from back when it there was good stuff on TV/Theatres

    What is coming next from DE? Other Titles that are in the works for a DE comic adaptation?

    What other TV/Movie you'd like to see in a DE line-up? Personally, I'd wish there was a CRITTERS comic (or even new movie lol). How about a Back to the future comic? LOL Bladerunner could be great! The Dark Crystal! hehe Max Max?

    Thank you very much for that, Amelia!

    I need to find a copy of that "Return to Labyrinth" now, and that Dark Crystal stuff looks awesome. Can't wait for that!

    Sure do; here's an interview with Jake Forbes, the writer of Return to Labyrinth (with sample pages), and here's a brief blurb for Legends of the Dark Crystal (which, sadly, isn't due out until November).

    No kidding...Do you have a link?

    If the art & writing is good, they'll be on my list for sure!

    somebody here mentioned "V" and that would be an awesome sci-fi companion to the BattleStar Galactica series. I heard they are making a new "V" mini series and a comic would be a great Dynamite title.

    I'd also like to see these licenses under the Dynamite banner these:

    Robocop
    The Transporter
    Kill Bill
    Alias
    James Bond
    Indiana Jones
    Lost
    Heroes
    Tron
    Labyrinth
    Dark Crystal
    Gremlins
    Goonies


    A "Willow" movie ongoing comic would be awesome too. An adaptation of the George Lucas Sequel novels to Willow that were released and written by Chris Claremont. These are very dark sequels and they were planned as movies but Lucas has been busy with the Star Wars prequels and now Indy 4. They were called Shadow Moon, Shadow Dawn and Shadow Star. There aren't any "Lord of the Rings" style comics out there and "Willow" is a great untapped universe to turn into comic form.

    Oh my, yes. Particularly if I get to be the one who writes it. (Yes, hope springs eternal. Or is that delusion? One of the two.)

    Granted, this may be a stupid idea!

    How about a Weird Science comic? Based on the TV Series exploits, not directly the movie. Maybe that is a license Dynamite could pick up?

    I also agree with The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. or Re-Animator.

    I agree with some of the ideas listed previously by others, Brisco County, V. Maybe a Back to the Future story or two (part of the profits could be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for fighting Parkinson's Disease).

    Another good idea for DE, I think, would be to produce mini-series licensed from whatever new DVD set is coming out at a given time. For example, when the Surface complete series set came out late last year, DE could have produced a mini-series that "concluded" the unfinished storyline.

    I would also like to see some more unorthodox types of licenses pursued. Stories of The Man With No Name from the Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns; a continuation of the old Saturday morning series, Land of the Lost (see my website, Tyrannosaurus lex).

    Also, how about Snake Plissken? And a series set in the universe of Babylon 5?

    That reminds me, who made the decision to make his shirt red in the new Xena comic? Autolycus is supposed to have a green shirt! That, and Xena's super chakram with Gabby with long hair, better be explained in the future.

    But alas I forget, Xena has no linear time. At least according to the disclaimer in the credits for the episode You Are There in season 6. You got to love those disclaimers.

    Good catch on that, I haven't actually checked any of their stuff out but it's nice to see someone doing it. Are all these old characters in the public domain?
    Good question. I believe that, in the US, the rule is basically that any work of fiction created prior to 1923 is fair game (though there's been some controversy about this vis-a-vis HP Lovecraft's work - although it's worth remembering that HPL himself actively encouraged others to do whatever they liked with his Mythos, stating that it would lend it "verisimilitude". Dude would've been all over the fanfic community had he been alive today).

    Interestingly, though, there is one public domain superheroine - Octobriana, a kind of immortal Communist Wonder Woman, supposedly created by a bunch of students behind the Iron Curtain in the Sixties. I think it'd be a blast to see her show up in Red Sonja or Highlander or some such - and it wouldn't cost you a dime, DE!

    Xena - Check.

    Sam Raimi Produced it. Dynamite appears to be doing everything that man touches. Too bad for them Marvel owns Spider-Man.

    And I very much want to see a Jack of All Trades comic. That was also produced by Sam Raimi and it starred, you guessed it, Bruce Campbell. That would fit perfectly with what Dynamite produces. When it has a Bruce Campell character in it you can do no wrong. Groovy.
    Forgot Xena - Hercules to follow?
