The Shadow of a Hero Reborn with Dragon Tattoos

When I was naming scenes, some are cute cultural references to different things, but not this one. It was simply "Escape from M.." but I didn't want to reveal this guy's name just yet. You'd never hear the name in the story, so I couldn't rightly put it in the name of one of the scenes.

Is it more intriguing or mysterious without his name? Maybe not, but I'm OK with the choice. I'm not especially good at drawing motorized vehicles, but I tried my best with the car chase.

Dr. Casey Miller, Dr. Howard Bolam and Evelyn escape from an unknown assailant in Escape from M____.

It's kind of backwards, what with most graphic novels and comic characters being turned into movies these days, including the awesome Kick Ass, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is going from foreign film, to novel, to Hollywood film and finally to graphic novel. An interesting path.

Also, read about the upcoming "The Shadow"and an engineering student's new graphic novel. An engineer surely can create some fascinating super powers, right?

The Shadow

Just a few days after we learned that Dynamite Entertainment had done the impossible and secured the rights to reprint Howard Chaykin's legendary The Shadow: Blood and Judgement in a new graphic novel edition, the publisher dropped another pulp bomb on us Monday morning: Garth Ennis will write an all-new The Shadow series for Dynamite. Debuting in April, the book will be drawn by Aaron Campbell (Dynamite's The Complete Dracula, Green Hornet: Year One) and feature cover artwork by the usual suspects: Alex Ross, John Cassaday, Jae Lee and, of course, Howard Chaykin. But unlike Chaykin's radical interpretation of The Shadow, the new Ennis series will be set in the 1930s.

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ seems to find success everywhere, it appears. First with the three novels, and recently with the U.S. film adaptation starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. Now, the books are expanding into another genre: graphic novels.

DC Entertainment’s Vertigo division will write multiple graphic novels based on the best selling Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson. Crime author Denise Mina will write the book, with art by Leonardo Manco and Andrea Mutti. Lee Bermejo will handle the cover image. “We’re thrilled to be adapting this incredible story into a series of graphic novels,” stated Karen Berger, executive editor, Vertigo. “Denise, Lee, Leonardo and Andrea have such great passion for the material and stylistically they’re a perfect match to bring it to comics life. Their beautifully dark and visceral work will certainly blow us all away.”
