CONAN: EXILES #1

Funcom and Dark Horse Comics are publishing a new Conan Exiles digital comic in January.

It will be tieing in with the upcoming open-world survival game of the same name, set in the world of Conan the Barbarian. They previously worked together on the digital comic book for Funcom’s 2008 massive multiplayer game, Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. The comic book was distributed to gamers and Conan fans worldwide, and was part of Funcom’s marketing campaign.

The new Conan Exiles comic is created by Michael Moreci, José Luis, and Andy Owens with input from the game’s art director Gavin Whelan and senior concept artist Anders Finér, and will give fans a new glimpse into the new events that take place in the Exiled Lands.

In the world of Conan Exiles, survival is more than tracking down food and water. Journey through a vast, seamless world filled with the ruins of ancient civilizations, uncovering its dark history and buried secrets as you seek to conquer and dominate the exiled lands. Start with nothing, but your bare hands and forge the legacy of your clan, from simple tools and weapons to gigantic fortresses and entire cities. Enslave the bandits of the exiled lands to do your bidding by breaking them on the grueling Wheel of Pain. Sacrifice the beating hearts of your enemies on the blood-soiled altars of your deity to seize true power and glory. Summon the colossal avatar of your god and see them lay waste to your enemies and their homes.

Conan Exiles will be released into Early Access on the PC on 31 January 2017 and will hit the Xbox One Game Preview Program in Spring 2017.

HEADLIGHTS HONEYS: THE "PERFECT PAIR" IN VINTAGE PAPERBACKS, PULPS, AND COMICS HC
(Writers) Monte Beauchamp, Steven Heller

Once celebrated by skilled painters and sculptors throughout the history of art, with the advent of the Industrial Age and assembly line production, scores of "mams" merchandisers soon got in on the act. From "boob" aprons, t-shirts, sweat-shirts, and baseball caps to salt and pepper shakers, mugs, coffee cups, and shot glasses, from greeting cards, books, and periodicals to candied treats, from jewelry to novelty gag gifts, billions of dollars are generated annually by the objectification of breasts. There was a time, however, when their low-budget portrayal in comic books, paperbacks, and pulps came under fervid assault, and effectively squelched, by the media censors. Headlight Honeys assembles dozens of rare, salacious cover examples and delivers the scoop on this harrowing, pre-code era in American publishing.

Hardcover, 6x8, 176 pages, Full Color, $29.95, On sale March 22.

Monte Beauchamp is an award-winning art director and founder of the graphics-illustration-comics annuals BLAB! and Blab World. His books include: Masterful Marks: Cartoonists Who Changed the World (2013), Krampus: The Devil of Christmas (2010), and The Life & Times of R. Crumb (2008). He has received numerous awards and honors, including the Society of Illustrator’s prestigious Richard Gangel Art Director Award for 2012.

Steven Heller wears many hats (in addition to the New York Yankees): For 33 years he was an art director at the New York Times, originally on the OpEd Page and for almost 30 of those years with the New York Times Book Review. Currently, he is co-chair of the MFA Designer as Author Department, Special Consultant to the President of SVA for New Programs, and writes the Visuals column for the New York Times Book Review.

FULL WOLF MOON - Coming May 16!
by Lincoln Child


The New York Times bestselling author of The Forgotten Room and Deep Storm is back with a new thriller that follows the trail of a killer who cannot exist...featuring Jeremy Logan, the renowned investigator of the supernatural and fantastic.

Legends, no matter how outlandish, are often grounded in reality. This has been the guiding principle behind the exhilarating career of Jeremy Logan, the "enigmologist"--an investigator who specializes in analyzing phenomena that have no obvious explanation--previously seen in The Forgotten Room, The Third Gate, and Deep Storm. Logan has often found himself in situations where keeping an open mind could mean the difference between life and death, and that has never been more true than now.

Logan travels to an isolated writers' retreat deep in the Adirondacks to finally work on his book when the remote community is rocked by the grisly discovery of a dead hiker on Desolation Mountain. The body has been severely mauled, but the unusual savagery of the bite and claw marks call into question the initial suspicions of a wild bear attack. When Logan is asked to help investigate, he discovers no shortage of suspects capable of such an attack--and no shortage of locals willing to point the finger and spread incredible rumors. One rumor, too impossible to believe, has even the forest ranger believing in werewolves. As Logan gets to know the remote deep-woods landscape, including a respected woman scientist still struggling with the violent loss of her father in these very woods, Logan realizes he's up against something he has never seen before.

His most action-packed and white-knuckled novel to date, Full Wolf Moon is the perfect combination of exotic locales, provocative science, and raw action that make for a deeply entertaining Lincoln Child blockbuster.

DAWNWARD SPIRE, LONELY HILL: THE LETTERS OF H. P. LOVECRAFT AND CLARK ASHTON SMITH
Coming in May!

The friendship of Clark Ashton Smith and Howard Phillips Lovecraft began in letters in 1922 and progressed over the years as each became famous to the readers of Weird Tales and other pulps of the 1920s and '30s. It began with Lovecraft, having been shown a few of Smith's poems by another friend, writing to Smith, and it continued up to Lovecraft's death -- the manuscript of his poem, “To Clark Ashton Smith, Esq., upon His Fantastic Tales, Verses, Pictures, and Sculptures”, was found on HPL's desk, apparently the last non-letter item HPL ever wrote.

Lovecraft was attracted to Smith's poetic style, transmundane focus, and sardonic wit; Smith liked Lovecraft's sweeping vistas of time and space and his personal philosophy of what's been called “cosmic indifferentism”: the belief that humanity is no more significant in the universe than a grain of sand, a blade of grass, or a solar flare. HPL encouraged CAS to try his hand at fiction, and the two were soon passing drafts of stories back and forth for comment.

For the first time, both sides of the surviving correspondence between these two supremely significant figures in 20th century weird literature are presented, forming a literary “conversation” that ranges from topics of contemporary art and literature to the doings of the amateur press associations to which they both belonged; frank evaluations of each other’s literary (and in the case of Smith, graphic and sculptural) achievements, and surprising personal revelations unrivalled in other phases of their written output.

As in all previous volumes in the Collected Letters series, these letters have been meticulously edited by David E. Schultz and S. T. Joshi, two of the leading authorities on Lovecraft and Smith. Rounding out the volume are appendices of writings by the two correspondents, shedding light on their relationship; an exhaustive bibliography; and a comprehensive index.

Hard Case Crime
FOREVER AND A DEATH
An unused plot for Pierce Brosnan’s 007 has resurfaced - as a novel!

Coming in June 2017!

Back in the 1990s, Eon Productions worked with a number of writers to develop the story for the follow-up to Goldeneye. One of those writers was Donald Westlake, legendary author of over 100 crime novels, the perhaps most famous of which were the Parker books (under his pseudonym of Richard Stark).

In 1995, before Goldeneye was even released, Westlake turned into Eon two treatments for “Bond 18.” Both his treatments apparently used as their backdrop Hong Kong’s transfer of sovereignty to China. In one of the treatments, Westlake had 007 facing off against Gideon Goodbread, an American businessman who planned to level Hong Kong after robbing its banks – a revenge scheme for the death of his missionary parents at the hands of the Red Chinese. Westlake described his Bond villain as “John Goodman with a Southern accent”, and likened him to the lead character in Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me. Goodbread commanded an army of Amerasian orphans he called “the Children.”

Westlake floated the following titles for his Bond adventure: Dragonsteeth; Nobody Dies; Forever And A Death; Never Look Back; On Borrowed Time. That last title was prophetic; the time-sensitive nature of the Hong Kong chanegover backdrop was deemed unsuitable, we got Tomorrow Never Dies instead, and Westlake's script was shelved.

Now Hard Case Crime has resurrected this lost story, which at some point Westlake rewrote as a novel - Forever And A Death.

It’s no longer a James Bond story and the details described above may not be included, but the vestigial elements of the story seem to be in place.
As a bonus, the novel will contain an afterword by one of the Bond producers, describing the history of the project.

The cover is by artist Paul Mann.

Vanguard Productions: STERANKO
A handsome, new, full-color volume celebrating the life and work of Jim Steranko, who has been called a “paragon of modern heroic mythology,” is scheduled for release this summer by Vanguard Productions. Explosive with art, graphics, and photos, the package incorporates illustrated chapters of compelling autobiographical stories, historic documentation, and revealing analytical insights about comics’ most controversial artist-writer-performer, the man who has inspired generations of creators, from Jack Kirby to Pulitzer-Prize winning novelist Michael Chabon. Steranko is annotated by the artist and J. David Spurlock, and includes a classic collaboration with legendary author Harlan Ellison.

STERANKO is the largest and most comprehensive collection of the famed graphic innovator's work since the 2002 instant-sell-out Steranko: Art Noir, and is packed with new and rare art, spanning the full range of  his career—from comics to book covers, film production illustrations to movie posters—many never before published or compiled in book form.

The hefty 8.5” x 11" volume features 128 pages of Steranko visual magic in a high-quality, hardcover, printed on heavy enamal stock. The tome  is also available in a Deluxe Limited Edition housed in a leatherette, crimson-foil embossed slipcased with 16-page Bonus Folio and signed by Steranko.

CBG’s Millennium Poll ranked the Eisner Award Hall of Fame winner The 5th Most Important Cover Artist of All Time, while Wizard honored him as The 5th Most Influential Comics Creator. As a musician, art  director, magician, photographer, fire-eater, designer, escape artist, filmmaker, pop-culture lecturer, and publisher, Steranko has cut a  ferocious path through the entertainment arts. The innovations he  created as artist-writer on Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America, and X-Men titles revolutionized the comics form and, as an illustrator, he produced a multitude of paintings, including 30 Shadow book covers.


He has shown his work at more than 200 exhibitions worldwide, including the Louvre, and his original art has sold at major auction houses in the $10-30,000 range. His two volumes of THE HISTORY OF COMICS have sold more than 100,000 copies and as the editor-publisher of the international newsstand entertainment magazine PREVUE, he conducted hundreds of superstar interviews and penned more than three million words. As a filmmaker, he has collaborated with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Francis Ford Coppola on some of their most popular movies.


STERANKO features a myriad of insights into his kaleidoscopic careers,and is heavily illustrated with hundreds of images, including visualizations of Indiana Jones, Nick Fury, The Shadow, Mike Hammer, Silver Surfer, Sinbad, Fantastic Four, Mister Miracle, and many others..
