Hosted by Kris Bather and Mladen Luketin from Western Australia, ES is a weekly podcast filled with news, reviews and pop culture shenanigans. Kris (loyal superhero fan) and Mladen (manga, anime and indie defender) chat about their varying, and occasional overlapping, interests in the wonderful world of sequential art.

Radical at New York Comic-Con

One of my favourite new publishers, Radical will have a booth at the extravaganza that is the New York Comic-Con for the first time. If you’re blessed enough to be there, stop by and say hi to a few great artists such as Jim Steranko and Steve Pugh. Full details of Radical’s events at next month’s Con are at the link below the image.

Fans who visit the Radical booth will find the company’s complete library of titles, including HOTWIRE: REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD #1, from Steve Pugh & Warren Ellis, and SHRAPNEL: ARISTEIA RISING #2, both released early exclusively for the show.

 Also available will be a deluxe free preview book of Radical Publishing’s new 2009 titles, showcasing the work of such talents as Luis RoyoJohn Bolton, Clayton Crain, Nick Percival and Joseph Kosinski (director of the heavily anticipated upcoming Disney TRON sequel TR2N), in addition to the creators signing throughout the weekend at the Radical booth.  

 

Radical will also host a special panel Saturday, Feb. 7 in Room 1A07 from 5:15 p.m.–6:15 p.m., with guests Jim Steranko, Arthur Suydam, Steve Niles, David Hine, Rick Remender, Steve Pugh and Sam Sarkar spotlighting their newest titles for Radical Publishing. After the panel, Radical will conduct a special drawing in which winners receive a framed poster from one of the featured creators: HERCULES: THE KNIVES OF KUSH, signed by Jim Steranko;CHOLLY AND FLYTRAP: CENTER CITY, signed by Arthur Suydam; FVZA: FEDERAL ZOMBIE AND VAMPIRE AGENCY, signed by David Hine; CITY OF DUST: A PHILIP KHROME STORY, signed by Steve Niles; THE LAST DAYS OF AMERICAN CRIME, signed by Rick Remender; HOTWIRE: REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD, signed by Steve Pugh; and CALIBER: FIRST CANON OF JUSTICE, signed by Sam Sarkar.

 

Each poster remains limited to one printing, making them highly valuable collector items. Additionally, panel guests will receive a limited and numbered special 3-D edition of the Radical preview book, with the numbers used to determine the winners of the drawing.

 

“This is a really exciting time for the company right now,” said Radical Publishing President and Publisher Barry Levine. “We have a great lineup of new titles involving our guests to introduce at the show, along with a very special surprise announcement to be made at our panel. This is a great opportunity for fans to meet us, to see our complete library of titles and what we have in store for 2009.”
