Producer/2riters Marc Guggenheim and Alisa Tager have announced the formation of Collider Entertainment, a company focused on intellectual properties than can be developed across multiple platforms for production and global distribution simultaneously.

The company will have multiple creators writing and directing stories for film, television, comic books, video games and alternative/new media outlets.

The first two projects will originate as comic books and be published by Image Comics:

* Utopian is by Guggenheim and Tara Butters. The project between Guggenheim and Butters -- both of whom are professional writers and are married but have never written together until now -- tells the story what happens when the world's superheroes are rendered obsolete when war, famine and crime suddenly begin to disappear. One hero investigates the source of the newfound tranquility, but his former comrades oppose his efforts to return the world to normal.

* The second title, The Mission, by Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber, is a supernatural thriller about a man who receives instructions from the angel Gabriel to commit murder.

Guggenheim said, "Collider is founded on the notion that when story drives the idea, unfettered by licensing and outdated business models, the end product is better and, therefore, more commercially viable."

Tager said, "Our philosophy is that the story drives the idea, rather than the medium determining the story. The result is only limited by the imagination of the creator."

* IDW Publishing has announced Ultimate Alex Raymond Collection: The Definitive Flash Gordon And Jungle Jim, offering two timeless series together for the first time. The collection will include every Sunday by Raymond from both classic strips, remastered, restored, and presented in the oversized, 12" x 16" "champagne" edition format.

"Alex Raymond's lush art deserves this oversized, remastered series," said Greg Goldstein, IDW's COO.

Coming in late 2011 and announced at Comic-Con International, this is the latest offering from Raymond, the quintessential adventure comic strip creator, by IDW's imprint, Library of American Comics. The artist's post-war modernist detective series, Rip Kirby, is currently being collected.

Dean Mullaney is editing and designing the deluxe editions.
