Another Russian spy uncovered in Red One

Xavier Dorison and Terry and Rachel Dodson launch a sexy and funky new superhero story, straight out of a Quentin Tarantino film, in Red One.

In Red One, it’s 1977—the height of the Cold War between the USSR and the US—and the Kremlin has a plan to win the war against Uncle Sam: propaganda!

Vera Yelnikov is an elite agent in the Soviet Army during the Cold War—she IS the atomic bomb. Vera is sent to Los Angeles by her bosses at the Kremlin. Her mission? Become a true “American superhero.” She must spearhead a propaganda operation of communist values from within the United States and fight against the “Carpenter”—a fascist serial killer who blames America’s ills on liberals.

In her cover identity “Alabama Jones,” Vera must find a day job that conceals her true mission—to do the Kremlin’s bidding when the USSR needs her… as RED ONE!

The exciting series poses a chilling question, one rife with political overtones: What happens when America’s Greatest Hero… is actually a Russian Spy? It hits stores on March 18 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code JAN150575.

Lemire and Nguyen’s Descender Lands at Sony Pictures

Descender1Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today that it acquired the feature film rights to Descender, the forthcoming comic book series from author Jeff Lemire and artist Dustin Nguyen. Josh Bratman will produce the film with Lemire and Nguyen attached to executive produce. The first issue of the eagerly awaited series will be published by Image Comics on March 4, 2015.

A sprawling, science-fiction space opera full of mystery and adventure, Descender is a rip-roaring, heart-felt cosmic odyssey about a little boy looking for home in a universe that hates and fears him. The incredibly lifelike artificial boy, TIM-21, may hold the secrets deep in his machine DNA to the origin of robots that have decimated entire planets. As a result, he is the most-wanted robot in the universe. Before long the entire galaxy is looking for TIM-21 and his rag-tag group of unlikely companions, as they make their way from one exotic planet to the next with new foes advancing on them at every turn.

Lemire is the creator of the acclaimed graphic novels Sweet Tooth, Essex County, The Underwater Welder and Trillum. His upcoming projects include the original graphic novel Roughneck from Simon and Schuster, as well as Black Hammer with Dean Ormston for Dark Horse Comics, Plutona with Emi Lenox and A.D. with Scott Snyder. In 2008 and in 2013, Lemire won the Schuster Award for Best Canadian Cartoonist. He received The Doug Wright Award for Best Emerging Talent and the American Library Association’s prestigious Alex Award, recognizing books for adults with specific teen appeal. Lemire has been nominated for 8 Eisner awards, 7 Harvey Awards and 8 Shuster Awards.  He has also written such titles as Green Arrow, Animal Man and Hawkeye for DC and Marvel Comics.

Nguyen is best known for his work on American Vampire along with numerous Batman titles including: Batman Eternal, Batman: Streets of Gotham, Detective Comics, and most recently, Batman: Li’l Gotham, which has spawned its own line of toys, of which Nguyen is the designer.
