Fierce Comics to Release Midwalker #1 at New York Comic Con

Fierce Comics announced that it will launch the company’s third title, Midwalker, at the 2011 New York Comic Con, held October 13-16, at the Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan. The book follows the experiences of Joshua Fischer after a serious head injury that almost cost him his life. Years after the injury, Fischer discovers he has the remarkable ability to cross partway into the ethereal realm whereby he is enveloped in, and can control, amazing energies. But the euphoric feeling associated with crossing over turns out to be far more addictive than he ever anticipated. “I wanted to explore what it would be like for a person if he or she were free to experience a taste of heaven while being tethered to Earth,” said writer Ben Filipiak. “How addictive would that ability be? How would it affect your relationships, or your perspective on life?” Soon after discovering his abilities, Joshua finds himself hunted by Growtesque, a large and powerful demon warrior sent to destroy him.

The story is being brought to life by the talented Mike Shoyket (Titans, Superman 80-page Giant, G.I. Joe: America’s Elite) who is both penciling and inking the book. “Besides the fun superhero stuff, it’s a figuration of how people, and especially young people, deal with horrible tragedy. I think it’s a very special story,” said Shoyket.

Fierce Fan favorite Scott Reed returns to color the book. Scott’s comics career began as an inker for Malibu Comics (Star Trek:DS9, Mortal Kombat, Ultraverse) and Dark Horse Comics (Godzilla, G.I.Joe). He later wrote, illustrated and self-published his creator-owned comics under his self-publishing label Web’s Best Comics (The Last Odyssey, High Strangeness). Reed was the penciler, inker and colorist of Redneck Red from Fierce Comics. More recently, he has written for Image Comics (The Overman) and Marvel Comics (Son Of Hulk: Realm Of Kings and Dark Son: The Enigma Force).

“I’m fortunate to have such an outstanding creative team to work with on this project. We’re receiving very favorable responses to both the story and the art in this book. It’s definitely looking like we have another winner on our hands,” said Filipiak. A limited number of preview edition copies of the first in the six-issue series will be available to purchase at the New York Comic Con.

Emmy®-Nominated MYTHBUSTERS Is Back!

BIG BALLS, PIGEONS AND (OF COURSE) LOTSAND LOTS OF DUCT TAPE!

Fresh off its third consecutive Emmy® nomination, MYTHBUSTERS is back for more explosive science-y goodness, as hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, and Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara, return with all-new fall episodes beginning Wednesday, September 28 at 9PM ET/PT. The series, which first launched on Discovery Channel in 2003, is inspiring a generation to inquire, interact and get involved with science … by using experimentation to prove or disprove popular myths, misconceptions or legends.

Fall 2011 myths will include:

  • Is it impossible for humans (without a point of reference) to walk in a straight line?
  • Are motorcycles better for the environment than cars?
  • Can you supersize a Newton’s Cradle to epic proportions?
  • If a pigeon lands on the roof of a car, which is hanging precariously over a cliff’s edge, could it provide enough force to send the car plunging over the side?
  • In a standoff between a hero with a revolver and a villain with a rocket-propelled grenade (as seen in the movie Red), could the bullet trigger the warhead? And would the villain be taken out by the blast?
  • Was the “flying guillotine” a lethal ancient weapon – or kung-fu make believe?
  • Can you use duct tape to fix a plane that has been mauled by a bear? (As odd as this one sounds, it’s a story that has inundated our fan site message boards for years!)
  • Could a methane blast inside a sewer, blow manhole covers tens of feet into the air?
  • Some call it indestructible, but can truck bed liners stop an animal attack? Prevent a car from being damaged? Make it bomb-proof?
  • A behind-the-scenes look at the special locations MYTHBUSTERS use to in their myth-busting tests, from Alameda to Africa and from the desert to the deep blue sea.
  • Explosions. Rocket sleds. More duct tape. Oh… and more explosions.

MYTHBUSTERS By the Numbers:

3 – Number of consecutive Emmy nominations for Best Reality Program (2009, 2010, 2011)
9 – Years of filming (series premiered on Discovery Channel in October 2003)
12 – (Tons, that is) – Poundage of explosives used
128 – Vehicles destroyed
189 – Total episodes filmed to date (including specials)
744 – Explosions
769 – Myths tested to date (425 busted, 179 confirmed, 155 plausible)
2,391 – Experiments tested (approx.)
6,255 – Hours filmed (approx.)
