LADY DEATH UPDATE
Artist Jim Cheung is joining writer/creator Brian Pulido on the next Lady Death arc, The Wild Hunt, beginning on Feb. 25 from CrossGen Entertainment.
The serires will leap forward one year from Lady Death: A Medieval Tale.
"Perfect for lovers of dark-edged fantasy, The Wild Hunt is crafted to shock existing fans while making complete sense to new readers," Pulido said. "The story starts with medieval Europe now ruled by the Eldritch, an ancient magical race out to extinguish humanity, who they view as cockroaches. Even though they're outnumbered underdogs, it's up to Lady Death and her underground fighters to drive the supernatural race back through the rift they stormed through. But Hope's father was Eldritch and her mother was human. So while she looks Eldritch, Lady Death is hated by the very people she wants to save.
"I really like how the TV show 24 jumps forward in time each season. It's cool to see how the characters progress, change or transform. I wanted to do the same with Lady Death so I could accelerate the story, amp up the conflicts, and surprise readers."
"When Jim Cheung joined the Lady Death team, we all smiled," said CrossGen senior V.P. of publishing Bill Rosemann. "Whenever a top-tier talent takes on a cool character, the results are often magic. And after seeing Jim's first pages, that's truly the case here. So in addition to launching fresh new titles like El Cazador, Abadazad, and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, we're also looking at how we can make every existing title stronger. And Cheung's definitely delivering the power!"

DPG VISIONS FORMED
Dabel Brothers Production (DBPro) announced that it will be joining with Independent Producer Leo Partible and Underworld creator / producer / star Kevin Grevioux to form DPG Visions, a studio geared at developing properties for the entertainment industry.
"We¹re extremely excited to be a part of this studio, and we're looking forward to seeing our original projects developed for TV, film, and video games," said Les Dabel, New Business Director and Vice President of DBPro. "Things are moving very quickly already, thanks to the experience and enthusiasm of Leo and Kevin."
"Our comic books will be more cinematic in style, reflecting the nature of the medium as a natural transition between literature and film," said Los Angeles-based Partible, who is developing a comics-to-film project with producers Adrian Askarieh and Chuck Gordon. "Our initial projects will focus on the action-adventure genre, horror, and family-friendly fare."
Titles under development include the Dabel Brothers creations Gemini and the sci-fi Marshal; Grevioux¹s Anti-Heroes and Spiral, an angels-versus-demons saga; Scott Kinney¹s Killer Stunts, Inc., and Partible¹s The Trouble With Grrrls!, the comic book version of his planned rock 'n roll film. Partible is also writing and drawing a sci-fi/superhero saga.
"Once again, we're so lucky to have the support of the fans and retailers on this book," said writer Jeph Loeb. "We're thrilled that the response has been out of this world. Following this arc we've got Pat Lee doing Issue #7 and then another massive storyline with Michael Turner starting in #8 -- both doing their first DC super-hero stories! On behalf of myself, Ed McGuinness, Dexter Vines, Richard Starkings and Dave Stewart -- we're doing our best to bring the heat!"
