– Via AIPT, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s “Scott Pilgrim” series, Oni Press have announced the ‘Scott Pilgrim Print Collection 2004-2024,’ a new print collection box set that will feature 21 high-quality, 9″ x 12″ prints, including all new never-before-seen art, classic images, and randomly inserted, limited-edition sketch prints. The series follows the 23-year old Canadian as he meets and falls for Ramona Flowers, an enigmatic American woman with whom Scott desperately wants to start a relationship. Before that, Scott must defeat Ramona’s seven evil exes. “Scott Pilgrim” has inspired a live-action movie starring Michael Cera, directed by Edgar Wright, as well as an animated Netflix series. The new print collection will debut on September 24, 2024. You can preorder here.

– In celebration of the 30th anniversary of “Hellboy,” Dark Horse have announced a Hellboy Lotería and a Handmade Hand of Glory Candle. Lotería is a traditional Mexican game of chance, and this set features 36 unique cards with artwork by Mike Mignola. Additionally, Dark Horse will release a Hand of Glory Candle which was made from 100% natural paraffin wax in the true-to-comics blue/gray color and including five separate wicks; this candle will bring light and magic to any setting for approximately 6 hours of burn time. Hellboy Lotería is available for $19.99 and comes polybagged with a header card, 36 cards, 10 tablas, 1 rules sheet, and 60 tokens, while the Hand of Glory Candle is approximately 4” wide by 9” tall, made with natural paraffin wax and cotton wicks, and costs $59.99. Both will be available at retailers beginning May 30, 2024.

– Via the School Library Journal, there were three graphic deals announced last week. First up, Putnam announced “Heartache” by Kelsi Jo Silva, which follows a young witch who must reverse a curse on her father, which also acts as a metaphor for abuse. “Heartache” will be released in Summer 2026. Next, Holiday House/Neal Porter Books have announced “My Chernobyl Year,” a Jewish girl’s graphic memoir, by Yevgenia Nayberg, due out Spring 2026. Finally, Top Shelf Comics have announced “The Night Fox” by Anna Staniszeswki and Del Hahn, in which a magical fox offers to make a deal to remove grief stricken memories. “The Night Fox” will be released in the fall of 2026.

– Bleeding Cool reports that at MCM London, Panini UK, the European magazine publisher distributor who has a licensing agreement with Marvel, announced its move from traditional Marvel comics and will launch Panini Manga. A soft launch was prepped for MCM London with Disney titles like the “Kingdom Of Hearts” and “Lilo & Stitch” manga, translated into English and being sold at the show. The UK joins France, Argentina, Brazil and other countries, who already use a Panini Manga line. While fans got a bit of a taste at MCM London, Panini says to expect a full launch soon.

– In more news from MCM London, Envision Entertainment unveiled Fable, a new digital comics app which aims to showcase UK talent and help it reach a global audience. The app’s interface has been tested, and “allows for vertical scrolling and enables you to create and share playlists of your favourite titles and creators or to add them to your personal reading shelf.” The team behind Fable have also created a Discord server which aims to connect creators and fans alike. For more information, check it out here.

– Via CBR, Cartoon Network have revealed that the 1990s Sailor Moon series will headline the new Toonami Rewind block of programming that’s dedicated to re-airing fan-favorite anime series from the programming block’s early history. Dragon Ball Z Kai and Naruto will join Sailor Moon on the block, which will be expanding to Friday evenings. This marks the first time ever that Viz Media’s dub of Sailor Moon will air on cable in North America. The new block will begin airing on Friday May 31, 2024 at 5:00PM.

Variety reports a disappointing Memorial Day Box Office weekend with sluggish gains for both Warner Bros. Discovery’s Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga and Sony’s The Garfield Movie, with the former just barely outperforming the latter. Furiosa ended up generating $26.2 million over the weekend and $32 million for the four days, while The Garfield Movie took in $24 million over the weekend and $31.1 million over the four days. This weekend marks the worst worst Memorial Day weekend in nearly three decades, excluding 2020 when theaters were closed due to the pandemic. Garfield, which had a $60 million budget, has grossed a total of $97 million so far thanks to having been released earlier in some overseas territories. Both Furiosa and Garfield, which respectively boast a 90% and 38% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, are currently playing in theaters.
