Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce that the classic pulp comic book series Turok returns with an all-new interpretation of the iconic character courtesy of writer Chuck Wendig (Star Wars: Aftermath, Hyperion) and artist Álvaro Sarraseca (Witchblade). With the debut issue set for release in August 2, 2017, Turok #1 also features a bonus Doc Spektor back-up story by Aubrey Sitterson (Street Fighter X, G.I. Joe) and Dylan Burnett (Weavers), a continuation of the serial in the Turok sister titles, The Sovereigns and Magnus.

In the latest Turok adventure, the fascist Saurian soldiers of the Varanid Empire-part dinosaur, part man, all bad-news-have seized control of the Lost Valley, and only the mysterious dinosaur hunter Turok is willing or able to stand against them! But right now, Turok only cares about one thing: tracking down a mysterious missing girl that could hold all of the clues as to how the Lost Valley has changed from the fantastical prehistoric land readers know and love.

Writer Chuck Wendig says, "I wasn't sure initially about tackling Turok because I wanted to do such a weird and wonderful story world justice -- but then, while talking with Dynamite Senior Editor Matt Idelson about all the stuff going on in the real world, an idea hit me in the chest like one of Turok's arrows. I'm excited to come on board and to hopefully bring something different to the story and to the character, while also keeping the spirit of what makes Turok awesome. And I'm hoping everyone enjoys reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it!"

Chuck Wendig, comic book writer, screenwriter, and blogger, is best known for his popular website, as well as for his 2015 novel Star Wars: Aftermath, which debuted at #4 on The New York Times Best Seller list, and #4 on USA Today's best seller list. In 2013, he was a finalist for the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

Artist Álvaro Sarraseca says, "I love drawing Turok. I made some character designs of him and finally we chose the wildest. As hunters usually wear the skins of their prey, I asked myself why Turok could not do the same thing? There are no limits for creativity here! This new version of Turok tears apart anything we saw before. I think it will attract new readers who didn't have any previous interest in the character."

"I knew Chuck was both incredibly creative and could bring great depth to his characters, and he's really managed to capture everything that's great about Turok while reinventing the character in a fun and mysterious way," says Matt Idelson, Senior Editor with Dynamite Entertainment. "Álvaro was the miraculous result of a loooong search for the perfect artist for this character and more importantly, Chuck's story. They make a hell of a team, and their work on the first issue already outshines the serial backup we've been running to set up the series."

"When Dynamite launched the Gold Key line in 2014, we were able to introduce new readers to a now reestablished universe, which has since served as the foundation for further series that we have continued to build upon," says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. "With the recent success of our series, The Sovereigns, these legendary characters have taken on a new life of their own, and we're excited to bring the world's first and foremost dinosaur hunter back to the pages of comics!"

The debut issue of Turok features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice! The cover artwork features the talents of Aaron Lopresti (Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman), interior artist Álvaro Sarraseca, Aaron Conley (Rocket Raccoon & Groot), and Andy Belanger (Southern Cross), respectively. Limited variant editions in "Black & White" and "Virgin Art" formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.

Originally published by Gold Key Comics from 1954 through 1982, Turok, Son of Stone chronicled the adventures of a young Native American man in the 18th century, who finds himself deep in the Carlsbad canyons where he must confront "ancient forms of life which have disappeared from all other parts of the world." Since the original comic book run, Turok continued at several comic publishers before finding its home at Dynamite Entertainment in 2014. In additional to the 2014 and now 2017 eponymous series, the character has also appeared in Dynamite's Doctor Spektor: Master of the Occult, Gold Key: Alliance, and The Sovereigns.

Turok #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' June 2017 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in August. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Turok #1 with their local comic book retailers. Turok #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play,Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

When word came out that the upcoming Joker: Folie à Deux was going to be a “jukebox musical” a lot of fans of the original Todd Phillips film became nervous. The original 2019 Joker was extremely gritty and dark, so the idea of the sequel having the main characters bust into popular songs didn’t sit too well with a few people. Now director Phillips is setting the record straight, saying, "We've never really talked about it like that but it's a movie where music is an essential element and, to me, it doesn't veer to far from the first film." He went on to say that this fits with the character introduced in the first film, "Yeah, Arthur is weird and aloof...but he has music in him." This does go against the original report that the film was going to have 15 covers of popular songs from the recent past, but it also said that the film would break the mold of traditional musicals. The Joaquin Phoenix lead Joker made over $1 billion and Warner Bros is hoping that the sequel, with addition of Lady Gaga, will do just as well when released this October.JOker 2

One of the big, rumored cameos associated with the upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine is the potential of megastar Taylor Swift appearing in the film as the mutant/singer Dazzler. The character has an extremely interesting creation, having been a collaboration between Marvel and Casablana Records as a multi-media disco star that could appear in comics, make music, and eventually go into film. Where the idea originated is debated, but the initial design was based on singer/actress Grace Jones at first, but when John Derek showed interest in doing the movie, Dazzler’s look changed to appear very similar to John’s wife Bo Derek who was coming off the film 10. The movie never happened, but Dazzler had her own solo series, and she would eventually be retconned into being a mutant, her powers to turn sound into light, and would work with the X-Men. There have been rumors floating around for some time about Swift being part of the movie because of her friendship with star Ryan Reynolds and his wife, actress Blake Lively. We move to yesterday’s release of Swift’s new album, The Tortured Poets Department, which was a surprise double album, and one of the songs, Clara Bow, ends with the line: “The future is bright, dazzling.” While it might seem like a stretch to see that as a tease for her potential role, we know that Swift loves to put “Easter Eggs” into her album and the Deadpool & Wolverine is believed to have a bunch of surprise cameos, so who knows. This one could be true.Taylor Swift

Last year’s SAG-ATRA strike has a few people looking at the comments they made while in the heat of the situation. One of those who spoke out at the time was She-Hulk: Attorney at Law star Tatiana Maslany who made some comments about Disney CEO Bob Iger. At the time Iger had said that the actor’s demands were “not realistic” to which Maslany said that Iger was “completely out of touch with the workers who make his shows happen, who make people watch the shows, who bring viewers to him and make him money.” In an interview with The Independent, Maslany isn’t necessarily walking back those comments, but she is softening them a bit, saying, “In those moments, you’re so heated up. It’s hard to articulate yourself in a way that you want when you’re on the picket line with everybody.” But she also brought up one of the issues that she was upset about, the move from in-person auditions to self-taping. “You send these tapes into the void, you never get responses, you never get any feedback and you’re working! You’re filming yourself and having to edit yourself, which is also the stuff that makes you so self-conscious.” Maslany will next be seen in an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Monkey, no word on when or if she will return to the MCU.  She Hulk
