Godkiller animated film trilogy starts production at Black Mask

godkiller 1 second printingPublishing and production company Black Mask Studios has announced its first major in-house production: three animated features based on the comic book Godkiller by Black Mask co-founder Matt Pizzolo, Anna Muckcracker Wieszczyk, and Ben Templesmith.

Black Mask acquired the film/TV/transmedia rights earlier this year from Pizzolo’s film company Halo-8, who produced an animated series of the property in 2010.

Black Mask will re-release the animated series Godkiller: Walk Among Us in 2015 as a fully re-mastered feature with new voice talent. This will be followed by two brand-new animated features Godkiller: Tomorrow’s Ashes in 2016 and Godkiller: The Trouble You Took From Her Eyes in 2017.

The features will utilize different animation styles for the various dimensions the characters travel through. They will be produced by Black Mask Studios, co-founded last year by Pizzolo, Brett Gurewitz, and Steve Niles.

Godkiller, about a teenage orphan and an escaped slavegirl journeying through a post-apocalyptic wasteland, debuted as a self-published underground comic and was launched in stores as a new ongoing comic book series from Black Mask on October 29. It was recently announced that Godkiller’s debut issue on Black Mask sold through its print run and would be the label’s first comic to receive a second printing based on outsized demand.

Black Mask is co-producing the Syfy series Fiver Ghosts with UCP and BenderSpink, based on the comic by Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham. Evan Daugherty is writing the pilot. Black Mask is also developing a transmedia adaptation of the same comic in-house.

New Spawn Animation

I have very fond memories of the Spawn animated show that used to air on HBO.  The series ran for three years, and even won a few Emmy Awards. Well, it looks like we might be getting some more animated Spawn!

On his Facebook page, creator Todd McFarlane has given us a first look at some of the animation design. First up Sam and Twitch!

At every convention and in every interview I do I am asked a couple of repetitive questions: “When is the new Spawn movie coming and when are we going to see more Animation like we did on HBO years ago?” (I also get a lot of ‘when are you going to draw The Amazing Spider-Man for Marvel again?’…)For those of you that don’t know, the original Spawn Animation was aired on HBO for three years and won a couple of Emmy Awards. Ever since it went off the air, fans have been bugging me to bring it back. Well, for your eyes only, here are some early images of a few key characters and a rough of a city street in black and white and in color.

If you all seem interested there is LOTS and LOTS more I can show you!!!!!! I may even put up some of the voice tracks for you.

Oh…and just wait until you see SPAWN himself!

Are you looking forward to Spawn’s animated return?
