Moonstone Books Kickstarts a Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel

On Tuesday, January 11, 1972, Kolchak: The Night Stalker terrified and delighted audiences on ABC. The TV movie — written by horror legend Richard Matheson and based on an unpublished novel by Jeff Rice — was the highest-rated TV movie in U.S. history. It subsequently spawned both a second TV movie, The Night Stalker, and a cult TV series that ran for just one season, but inspired a generation of storytellers, notably including X-Files creator Chris Carter. 

Moonstone Books is celebrating this pop culture milestone with a Kickstarter campaign for Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel, edited by James Aquilone. This all-new, 100+ page, full-color graphic novel will feature 10 startling stories chronicling the life of monster-hunting reporter Carl Kolchak. The stories are written by such master storytellers as David Avallone, Rodney Barnes, James Chambers, Nancy Collins, Peter David, Kim Newman, Jonathan Maberry, Richard Christian Matheson, Tim Waggoner, and Aquilone, and illustrated by such amazing artists as Jonathan Marks Barravecchia, Marco Finnegan, Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, Paul McCaffrey, Clara Meath, Julius Ohta, Tom Rogers, J.K. Woodward, and Colton Worley. It features covers by Colton Worley, Jerry Ordway and J.K. Woodward as well as lettering by Thomas Napolitano, coloring by Zac Atkinson, and text design by Shawn T. King.

Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel also includes an introduction by Richard Christian Matheson, the bestselling horror author/screenwriter/producer and son of The Night Strangler writer Richard Matheson, an essay on the 50th anniversary by Mark Dawidziak, the author of The Nightstalker Companion, and a retrospective of Moonstone Book’s Kolchak publication history by publisher Joe Gentile.

The Kolchak: The Night Stalker 50th Anniversary Graphic Novel Anthology will be available in limited-edition softcover and hardcover editions, both with variant covers. In addition Moonstone Books is creating a special 40-page standalone comic for the Kickstarter, featuring the story “Satanic Panic ’88,” written by James Aquilone and illustrated by Colton Worley, and featuring a cover by Dan Brereton.

Review: Wastelanders: Doom #1

Wastelanders: Doom

Once you have everything you ever wanted in life, can you truly be happy? Reaching your goals, means that you have reached your zenith?  As people can get this feeling misdiagnosed. Throughout the world, they have different adjectives for this, but the most common being angst, ennui or weltschmerz.

We generally feel angst, when we worry but that would be reductionist, as it can be more directly described as a feeling that disrupts peace and contentment for no definable reason.  Then there is Ennui, which dates back to the French Revolution, and is described as feeling of weariness and dissatisfaction. Then there is Weltschmerz, which dates back to the Romantic Era in Germany and rightfully so, as it can be described as when the one who suffers wishes the world to be otherwise.  In the latest one shot story in the Wastelands, we get Wastelanders: Doom, where the wary ruler , seemingly has gotten everything but suffers a combination of angst, ennui or weltschmerz in varying degrees.

We are taken to Doom’s Lair, where Doctor Doom rules his territory of the Wastelands, and as such, since Red Skull’s death, chaos has spilled over, whereby rogue groups have since emerged. As Doom lays waste to one of these groups of raiders, he discovers a small town somehow in his territory but not of his knowledge,  but it is not what it seems, as it is trap made by magic. As it is realm protected by witches who only induce his nightmares, filled with memories from his childhood, and of the past, when he welcomed his goddaughter, Valeria Richards, Reed’s daughter. As he finds himself enchanted by the possibilities of staying there, but is told the cost would losing a precious memory, and right when he is about to make a choice, he finds the puppet master behind the rouse, Baron Mordo. By the issue’s end, Mordo finds the source of the magic was Darkhold ,trapping hundreds of people include Sofia Strange and Agatha Harkness who helps Doom give a decisive blow to Mordo once and for all.

Overall, Wastelanders: Doom is an excellent entry into the Wastelanders canon that shows villains can be a hero even when they don’t look to be. The story by Gronbekk is amazing. The art by the creative is breathtaking. Altogether, a story which shows why the MCU should bring Viktor Von Doom into the MCU sooner than later.

Return to the Wastelands of Old Man Logan in Wastelanders

This December, return to the post-apocalyptic Wastelands of Old Man Logan in five all-new stories set in the Marvel future where heroes have fallen, villains have won, and your favorite characters defy all odds to survive. Brought to you by all-star creators including writers Steven S. DeKnight, Ethan Sacks, Rich Douek, and Torunn Grønbekk, these five one-shots will focus on Wolverine, Hawkeye, Doctor Doom, Star-Lord, and making their first appearance in the Wastelands, Black Widow.

DeKnight, known for his work on Netflix’s Daredevil and Wolverine: Black, White & Blood, will lead the return alongside artist Ibrahim Moustafa in Wastelanders: Wolverine, an all-new story set in the days after the conclusion of the original Old Man Logan, as he fights once again to save the people of the Wastelands who have been crushed under the heel of the Red Skull and Bruce Banner! The super villains united and took out most of the world’s super heroes decades ago, and while the man known as Logn attempted to live a life of peace, he had to pop the claws once again to do what he does best! But saving the day looks different with the Baby Hulk under his care. Is Logan doing the right thing by protecting the progeny of the HULK or dooming what’s left of the war-torn world? Logan may not have long to ponder if he is crushed by the adamantium armor of his newfound enemy Downfall! Featuring a main cover by Josemaria Casanovas and connecting variant by Steve McNiven.

Wastelanders mastermind Ethan Sacks, writer of both Old Man Hawkeye and Old Man Quill, is also back with artist Ibraim Roberson to bring you a never-before-told story of Hawkeye’s training with Stick—the man formerly known as Daredevil—in Wastelanders: Hawkeye! Clint Barton’s sight may be gone, but his will to avenge is stronger than ever, and with the training and expert guidance of Matt Murdock, arrows will fly again! But what is Murdock’s actual target? And how will this change Hawkeye’s path in the Wastelands? This is one issue YOU can’t afford to miss! Featuring covers by Casanovas and McNiven.

The Mighty Valkyries writer Torunn Grønbekk and rising star Julius Ohta explore the complex nature of everyone’s favorite tyrant in Wastelanders: Doom! Doctor Doom helped wipe out the heroes on the Day the Villains Won, but even as he rules his domain in the Wastelands, a greater destiny calls to him. When a mysterious power blocks his oversight of a particular region, what he discovers will have ripple effects across the Wastelanders stories! With a cover by Casanovas.

Writer Rich Douek makes his Marvel Comics debut alongside artist Brent Peeples in Wastelanders: Star-Lord! The legendary Star-Lord has fallen on hard times. With the Guardians of the Galaxy disbanded, Peter Quill returned to Earth to find it a wasteland unlike anything he’s seen across the stars – heroes dead, villains in power. While he’s taken out one threat, others remain in the Wastelands, and Star-Lord’s own desire to assuage his guilt for being off-world during the calamity will land him right in the middle of another! Will Quill overcome the mysterious force waiting for him at the site of his lost love’s death? Or is she not really dead at all? With a cover by Casanovas.

Bookending the saga, DeKnight will team up with artist Well-Bee to introduce the Wastelander’s take on Natasha Romanoff in Wastelanders: Black Widow. The Lizard King has grown monstrous and deadlier than ever as the lord of his southern domain. But when rumor breaks that critical information is believed to be stored in his impenetrable fortress, only the greatest spy of all is up to the infiltration: the deadly Black Widow! But who is she, and how has she survived this many decades in the Wastelands undetected? With a cover by Casanovas.

Don’t miss the latest evolution of this fascinating saga when this all-new group of Wastelanders adventures hit stands in December!
