EW Drops the Ball

Yesterday Entertainment Weekly posted an interview with Dark Horse founder Mike Richardson and Dark Horse V.P. of Publishing Randy Stradley. Readers may have noticed in the interview that the author presented a pointed agenda portraying Dark Horse Comics as losing the Star Wars license.

“For the Oregon-based comics company, the project may be the great farewell to the Jedi mythology. Star Wars comics have been a core part of the Dark Horse‚Äôs indie publishing empire since the early 1990s. Now, after the Disney purchase of Lucasfilm, Dark Horse is likely to lose the license in the months ahead.” -Geoff Boucher, Entertainment Weekly

Here is a link to the interview.

According to Randy Stradley, the interview fell well below his expectations.

“…just a cursory skim of the interview shows me places where I was completely misquoted, places where my quote was attributed to Mike, or his to me, where portions of different statements we made were combined into one, or where statements just stop before the thought is completed.”

Randy went on to say that he would never do another live interview.

It’s sad to see an outlet like Entertainment Weekly mess up as bad as this. Skewing the facts in order to create an agenda is a disservice to their readers and the public in general. Adding insult to injury is their inability to even get the answers correct. One thing is for certain, Entertainment Weekly’s validity as a Star Wars news source has been severely damaged. Furthermore, if you see the name Geoff Boucher attached to an article, be sure to keep in mind his inability to get the facts straight.

Author Tim Lebbon has a new book out today, Reaper’s Legacy. This is the second book in his Toxic City trilogy. Tim has links to where you can buy it here.

Heroes and monsters clash with government forces in an apocalyptic London. Two years after London is struck by a devastating terrorist attack, it is cut off from the world, protected by a large force of soldiers (known as Choppers), while those in the rest of Britain believe that their ex-capital is now a toxic, uninhabited wasteland. Jack and his friends know that the truth is very different. The handful of survivors in London are developing strange, fantastic powers. Evolving. Meanwhile, the Choppers treat the ruined city as their own experimental playground. Jack’s own developing powers are startling and frightening, though he is determined to save his father, the brutal man with a horrific power who calls himself Reaper. Jack must also find their friend Lucy-Anne, who went north to find her brother. What Lucy-Anne discovers is terrifying-people evolving into monstrous things and the knowledge that a nuclear bomb has been set to destroy what’s left of London. And the clock is ticking.

‘Fire Carrier #3’ Interior Art

Artist Gabriel Guzman posted some of his interior art from Dark Times: Fire Carrier #3 showing off the uncolored and finished pages. You can check them out here. I always think it’s neat seeing how the artwork differs before and after the colorist gets a hold of it. In this case, that would be Garry Henderson.
