It’s the movie we’ve all been waiting for: The Dark Knight Rises. This is the final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, and I must say, it was worth it. Every freaking penny. Every minute of waiting. As great as The Dark Knight was with Heath Ledger’s outstanding performance, Nolan manages to maintain that level of brilliance for an excellent end to the series. The Dark Knight Rises is a tale of darkness and hope, of despair and triumph, and throughout the entire film, the viewer is kept guessing which way things will go. Is Bane going to kill Batman? Will Gotham be wiped out? Will anyone survive the chaos? Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’…

New Dark Horse Comic: Dragon Resurrection Debuts This Summer

  From Dark Horse Comics:

“At San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Dark Horse announced it would publish the first book in the exciting new multimedia franchise from DeZerlin Media: Dragon Resurrection!

Following the discovery of the remains of a dragon in the mountains of Tibet, adventurer Jesse Chang sends a DNA sample back to his twin brother, geneticist Jack. However, when a rogue American general learns of the discovery, he sets in motion a global pursuit to seize and control the technology for his own shocking ends. Now these twin siblings must synthesize the dragon’s DNA, creating a new generation of living, breathing dragons, in order to take on a tyrant bent on building his own personal kingdom.

A dynamic cross between Jurassic Park and Mission: Impossible, Dragon Resurrection represents the first-ever Chinese superheroes to be seen in the mainstream international markets. This dynamic new graphic novel from Dark Horse represents the first release of a franchise that will produce books, games, and other merchandise, leading up to a major motion picture.

“It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s cool—we purposely made a book that we ourselves wanted to read,” said writer/producer Mark Byers. “We’re so happy to be part of the Dark Horse team and to have them share our enthusiasm for the franchise.”

“Dragons are not just in fairy tales; they’re real, and they live among us,” says creator/producer Lin Zhang. “That’s the feeling we wanted to create, and since dragons are a part of both Eastern and Western cultures, we made an exciting action adventure that will thrill everyone.”

Vincenzo Acunzo is the inker for Knight Errant: Escape and he’s been posting some pretty cool images of the inked pages. I think it’s always neat seeing the different stages of comic book art, be it the penciled drafts, the inked art, or the fully colored imagery. There just something about the stark black and white images that catches the eye.

The following images were penciled by Marco Castiello and Andrea Chella, with the inks by Vincenzo Acunzo.
