Hellbreak #5

Hellbreak #5
Written by Cullen Bunn
Illustrated by Brian Churilla
Colored by Dave Stewart
Lettered by Crank!
Cover by Brian Churilla
Oni Press
Release Date: July 22, 2015
Cover Price: $3.99

What a wild ride this has been! Hellbreak #5 continues a tale that seems to have more twists and turns than a theme park roller coaster. We’ve known for a while that there are a seemingly endless amount of hells out there, most being tailored to the individual soul being tormented. But this issue presents the reader with far more than a straight forward search and recovery style mission.

Hellbreak

I recently had the chance to ask Cullen Bunn and Brian Churilla a few questions about Hellbreak and some of their other projects. I’ve long been a fan of Cullen, but I’m only recently discovering Brian, thanks in no small part to The Sixth Gun mini-series Sons Of The Gun they did together and the Big Trouble In Little China series. Getting the skinny on their newest collaboration was awesome, to say the least.

If you haven’t checked this amazing new comic out, I urge you to do so. The premise is awesome and it looks like it’s going to be a great run! If you missed my review of the first one, you can find it here.

So, without any more delays, here’s what went down with Cullen!

Hellbreak #1

Oni Press
Release Date: March 11, 2015
Cover Price: $1.00

“My boss went to Hell and all I got was a skinny half-naked dude.” That line pretty much sums up this comic. Combining a good deal of action and quite a few horrible creatures, Hellbreak #1 is a fast-paced read filled with twisted humor and dangerous travels. In short, it was a barrel of fun!

You probably recognize the names involved here. Cullen Bunn is famous for his kickass comic book The Sixth Gun, also available on Oni Press. He is also known for a little series he wrote that you may have heard of entitled Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe. He also writes books. You know, books. Those things that are sort of like comics, but don’t have any pictures. He’s a busy man with big plans, so keep your eyes open for him.

Welcome, my friends, to Big Trouble In Little China #3! Twenty-eight years ago, one of the finest action comedies to ever grace the silver screen was released. And apparently it was so awesome that it took this long to create a suitable followup to the film. This third issue, in what has to be one of the funniest comics around, is a worthy sequel to John Carpenter‘s masterpiece. Of course, the first issue got a wonderful review from GoD’s PS Hayes, so make sure you check it out, too.

I’ve been waiting YEARS for Big Trouble in Little China #1, and the wait is finally over!!! Can this comic possibly live up to years and years of anticipation? Let’s take a look..

I’ve never read an Eric Powell comic, but if the rest of them are half as entertaining as this book is, I’m going to start. From a story by him and John Carpenter (director of the 1986 film), Powell brings back every man’s favorite every man, Jack Burton (played by Kurt Russell in the film). The book takes place about 5 minutes after the movie ends, and Powell shows us that the movie wasn’t really a special event for Jack Burton, it was just another day in his life.

Big Trouble in Little China #1 cover banner

Back in February, BOOM! Studios released a teaser image drawn by Eric Powell (The Goon), but provided no other information for what looked to be a new comic book based on the 1986 John Carpenter film Big Trouble in Little China. The image showed the character Jack Burton, played by Kurt Russell in the film, from the neck down, wearing his signature white Fu Manchu tank top and jeans, holding a knife and a semi-automatic handgun. The tagline on the teaser was “Everybody relax! I’m here,” a popular quote from the movie.

Now, BOOM! has finally revealed some details about the project, as well as released five cover images for Big Trouble in Little China #1, the start of the publisher’s new on-going comic book series from Powell and Brian Churilla (The Sixth Gun: Sons of the Gun) being overseen by the film’s director John Carpenter.

Check out all the covers here below.

Comic Review: The Secret History of D. B. Cooper #1 and #2The Secret History of D. B. Cooper #1 and #2
Story and Art by Brian Churilla
Oni Press
Issue #1 Release Date: March 14, 2012
Issue #2 Release Date: April 18, 2012
Issue #1 Cover Price: $3.99
Issue #2 Cover Price: $3.99

Unexplained mysteries, no matter how radical or bizarre, have always been, to some extent, an obsessive interest of mine. Things like Roswell 1947 or The Zodiac Killer have fascinated me – both with the factual evidence available, and the speculative theories offered from both believers and questioners alike. Both examples cited have had their share of fictional representation in media, but the mystery of D. B. Cooper has yet to have a central role in stories… until now.

While some fans may protest that the television series Prison Break had the Cooper mystery involved, it was not the central focus of the story. Finally, the enigma has entered the universe of comic books in a starring role, with Oni Press’ The Secret History of D. B. Cooper, affording a wildly speculative adventure mixing science fiction with espionage and psychedelic overtones.

C2E2 2010: ‘Atomic Robo’ Writer Brings Back The Infinity Gauntlet

Geeks of Doom Invades C2E2 2010

2009-04-16-infinityAt yesterday’s MONDO MARVEL panel at the 2010 Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) saw a bunch of new titles announced, and one that has me excited is an out of continuity project by Atomic Robo writer Brian Clevinger.

The new series is called The Avengers and the Infinity Gauntlet and was described as a complete reimagining of the original story, published in 1991. Apparently Clevinger was told to read the original series, then forget everything he just read and come up with his own Infinity Gauntlet story.

In the new story, Thanos has the Infinity Guantlet and a group of Avengers has to get it back before everything dies. We’ll have to read the series to find out exactly how it differs from the original story, but if it’s anything like Clevinger’s other works, it will have a lot of action and humor.

The Anchor Vol 1 TPBThe Anchor
Vol. 1: The Five Furies
Written by Phil Hester
Art by Brian Churilla
BOOM! Studios
Release date: February 10, 2010

By Seaberry

The Anchor is an interesting tale about a being who is the wall between Hell and Earth. While his soul battles demons in Hell, he also battles evil beings on Earth. Very little can hurt him, but whatever damage is done to him in Hell will manifest itself on his earthly body. He has very few memories of the past, dresses and speaks in an outdated manner, and has the anchor-shaped cross of Saint Clement on his belt. The first trade, The Five Furies, introduces the Anchor, his supporting cast, and his unusual mission.

Anchor first appears in Reykjavik, Iceland, after a giant monster has attacked the town. His purple skin, large frame, and constantly appearing wounds make him a bit of an enigma. He quickly befriends a nurse named Hofi Eriksdotter and she winds up accompanying him on his mission to defeat the Five Furies, a group of monsters spread around the globe that cause massive amounts of destruction and death. Along the way, the Anchor slowly gains his memories back, learning the truth about himself and his origins.
