Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents an all-new Evil Ernie #1, written by Scott Lobdell and illustrated by Ariel Medel! Featuring two amazing covers: The King of the Undead — Arthur Suydam and amazing superhero artist Brett (Titans) Booth!

After EARNEST GLECKMAN is mortally wounded, he discovers he must “pay down his new lease on life” by serving as a part time fixer for a death cult. Each time he manifests his dark side as EVIL ERNIE it becomes harder to maintain his tenuous grip on his inherently good humanity

EARNEST GLECKMAN is a good kid with exceptional grades in his senior year at college…his only quirk is the rock band he sings in every Saturday night. He enjoys the rock esthetic and “dressing the role” if not acting like a nihilistic punk.

All that is changed when he assumes the role of…

EVIL ERNIE who is the polar opposite of EARNEST. ERNIE is vicious and cruel and sadistic as he employs all manner of torture or murder (or oft-times both!) against his targets.

EARNEST is stable, good, focused. ERNIE is a chaotic, evil, anarchist.

Evil Ernie first appeared in December 1991! Celebrate 30 years of CHAOS!

Scott Lobdell rose to the top of the 1990s on Marvel’s X-Men related titles, specifically Uncanny X-Men, the main title itself, and the spin-off series that he conceived with artist Chris Bachalo, Generation X.

Scott Lobdell Departs Red Hood as New Allegations are Raised

Scott Lobdell is a comic writer who has largely escaped allegations of harassment. Today, he announced that he would be exiting Red Hood and the Outlaws after the 50th issue wraps. He began writing the character of Jason Todd, aka Red Hood, since DC’s New 52 initiative in 2011 and has one of the longer current runs of a single writer on a character.

I’m stepping away from only remaining freelance work on Red Hood and The Outlaws, effective immediately” Lobdell wrote. “Issue #50 out in October will be my final issue. While I’m profoundly grateful for the last ten years on a book telling the story of a tragically flawed man in search of redemption, I depart certain that my vacancy will be filled by a dynamic new voice.

His statement makes it sound like Lobdell is stepping away from comics as a whole. He still is writing for Dynamite and is launching their latest volume of The Green Hornet.

The writer has found success with films like Happy Death Day which was released in 2017 and a sequel in 2019. He also was a writer on Critters Attack! which was released in 2019 and an attempt to reboot the classic horror franchise. His creator-owned comic series Ball and Chain is currently being adapted into a film starring The Rock and Emily Blunt.

Lobdell admitted to having engaged in harassment in 2013 and was accused of it last year again when he was announced as the writer of Flash Forward.

I myself witnessed Lobdell drunkenly making a woman uncomfortable, something she told me had happened multiple times before, at San Diego Comic-Con. A DC staffer stood next to Lobdell as if to make sure he didn’t get completely out of hand but was ok with general creepiness. A source also has spoken privately of unwanted inappropriate messages Lobdell would send over instant message.

With Lobdell’s announcement, numerous individuals have spoken out further about the creator leaving many to wonder if he’s getting out of comics before more is revealed threatening his movie career.

Artist Tess Fowler came forward about inappropriate comments Lobdell made to her.

Alex de Campi too took to Twitter to speak up as well:

And more individuals have come forward as witnesses to his behavior.

Numerous other individuals are coming forward with their own stories and screenshots of inappropriate messages the writer has sent.

Lobdell is a shining example of a known problem within the industry seeing no repercussions due to their actions and being protected by senior staff. And, suffering no accountability, is able to walk away on his terms.

Ball and Chain #1

Emily Blunt and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are reuniting for the upcoming superhero film Ball and Chain. The movie is an adaptation of the comic series by Scott Lobdell, Alé Garza, and Richard Bennett and being adapted by Emily V. Gordon.

Johnsons has multiple comic properties ahead of him. Along with this film there’s DC’s Black Adam and Doc Savage. This would be the second comic property for blunt who starred in Edge of Tomorrow based off of the manga and book and is rumored to reprise her role in Live Die Repeat and Repeat as well as being a consistent rumor as an actor joining the Marvel Universe.
