IDW and Steve Niles’ October Faction Gets a Trailer

Locke & Key is getting the news but another IDW Publishing published comic also saw a trailer drop. October Faction is based on the comic series written by Steve Niles that featured art by Damien Worm.

October Faction follows Fred (J.C. MacKenzie) and Deloris Allen (Tamara Taylor) who, after the death of Fred’s father, return to their hometown in New York with their 17-year-old twins Geoff (Gabriel Darku) and Viv (Aurora Burghart). Subsequently, Geoff and Viv’s lives are turned upside down when they discover their seemingly unremarkable insurance sales rep parents are, in fact, (spoiler alert!) trained assassins who hunt monsters.

October Faction debuts on Netflix on January 23.

Welcome to Keyhouse with the First Trailer for Locke & Key

Based on the popular comic series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, the first trailer for Locke & Key is here.

The project has been in the works for years with a pilot shot for Hulu that never aired (though shown at conventions) and the series wasn’t greenlit. Netflix picked up the series in 2018.

The series follows the Locke family whose patriarch is murdered. They move across the country to his ancestral home in New England. Keyhouse is huge and full of mystery, especially the magical keys hidden that open all kinds of doors.

Locke & Key comes to Netflix on February 7.

Netlfix is Working on a Bone Animated Series

Bone

It looks like Jeff Smith‘s critically hailed and best-selling Bone comic series is coming to television. Netflix has acquired the rights the award-winning series. It’ll be developed into an animated series and is part of the streaming platform’s focus on kids programming.

In 2016 it was announced that Mark Osborne with a script co-written with Adam Kline was adapting the series as an animated film for Warner Bros. The movie studio acquired the rights around 2008. That failed attempt opened the door for Netflix.

Bone was first published in 1991 by Smith who began creating the series when he was 10 in 1970. He also has said early versions of the characters were drawn by him when he was 5 years old. The series ran for 55 issues and ended its run in 2004. It was originally published by Smith’s Cartoon Books, then Image Comics, and finished its run with Cartoon Books. It’s earned 10 Eisner Awards and 11 Harvey Awards. It’s one of the trailblazing kids series and a lynchpin for Scholastic’s graphic novel imprint Graphix Books.

The series has sold over 8 million copies in North America and has been released in 30 countries. It has earned 40 national and international publishing awards.

The series follows the Bone cousins on adventures through their fantasy world filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures.

Masters of the Universe Returns Courtesy of Netflix and Kevin Smith

Netflix has revealed that the 1980s Masters of the Universe will return in a new animated show. Masters of the Universe: Revelation picks up where the first series left off. Netflix is working with Kevin Smith for the show. Smith will serve as the project showrunner and executive producer for the limited anime series.

Revelation will focus on unresolved storylines from the 80s show and is not a reboot like the recent She-Ra and the Princesses of Power which also is on Netflix.

Mattel Television is producing the series while Powerhouse Animation is handling the animation. Powerhouse is behind Netflix’s Castlevania.

It’s unknown when the series will debut.

Netflix Wants You to Binge Mark Millar’s Chrononauts: Futureshock

Chrononauts: Futureshock

Netflix is going to attempt to bring its binge model to comics with Mark Millar‘s Chrononauts: Futureshock. All four issues of the miniseries will be released on the same day in October.

The series is a follow up to the 2015 series by Millar and Sean Gordon Murphy. It has characters Corbin Quinn and Danny Reilly attempting to time travel to the future but something is preventing them from doing so. It opens up the question as to if this is a problem that there isn’t a future to go to?

Being released through Image Comics, the art is by Eric Canete and features main covers by Pasqual Ferry and first issue variants by Travis Charest, Kev Nowlan, Rey Macutay, and Canete.

This isn’t the first time this has been done. Robert Kirkman’s Tech Jacket Digital tried it in 2014. Publisher TKO Studio allows you to choose to purchase an entire series at once as single issues or as a collected edition on release.

The model is an interesting one as stores have a bit more risk put on them. Usually, stores order future issues based on past issues performances. With a same-day release for all issues that data is removed from the equation. For instance, the first issue of Chrononauts sold 57,465 copies according to estimates while the second sold 33,551. The third issue saw sales of 26,605 and fourth issue was 25,261. Huck #1, also by Millar, sold 37,775 copies in 2015. His more recent series The Magic Order, Millar’s first major release through Netflix, saw estimated sales of the first issue at 158,425 copies, #2 at 33,784, #3 at 29,870, #4 at 27,959, and #5 at 27,372. It’s unknown if this series will have incentives for stores like his previous.

Chrononauts: Futureshock is out October 30.
