'The Book of Forks'

– SelfMadeHero revealed six new graphic novels set for release this fall. The following titles are set for release in September:

  • “ABC of Typography,” by David Rault, a host of artists including Seyhan Argun, Aseyn, François Ayroles, and translated by Edward Gauvin. The graphic novel will chronicle the evolution of fonts starting in Roman calligraphy through to Gutenberg and beyond.
  • “Isadora Duncan” by writer Julie Birmant and artist Clément Oubrerie, with Edward Gauvin translating, which is a graphic biography of the titular individual, detailing her life as she broke down the conventions of traditional ballet.
  • “Mozart in Paris” will be written and drawn by Frantz Duchazeau, with Edward Gauvin translating. The graphic novel will tell the story of Mozart’s six-month stay in Paris, which was wrought with tragedy and creative discovery.
  • The following titles are scheduled for release in October:

  • “Mikel” by writer Mark Bellido and artist Judith Vanistendael, and translator Erica Mena. “Mikel” is based on the experiences of Bellido and his time working as a bodyguard to Basque politicians. It follows Mikel leaving behind his life as a confectionery seller to become a bodyguard in the Basque country.
  • “The Dance of Death” by Martin Rowson reshapes Holbein’s classic woodcuts of the same name for a modern audience.
  • “The Book of Forks,” written and drawn by Rob Davis, is the final part of Davis’s abstract trilogy that so far consists of “The Motherless Oven” and “The Can Opener’s Daughter.” The final graphic novel will step inside Castro Smith’s mind and reveal “truth about the history of the world, the meaning of existence and the purpose of kitchen scales.”
  • – Image Comics announced that Michel Fiffe’s “Copra” will be returning this October. The original series told the story of a group of misfit superheroes who set out on a revenge mission. It ran for 31 issues and ended on a cliffhanger which Fiffe promises to address, stating that this new start “picks up right where the previous volume left off.” “Copra” #1 is scheduled for release on October 2.

    – DC Comics have announced plans to release Jack Kirby’s ‘Fourth World’ saga in an Absolute Edition titled “Absolute Fourth World by Jack Kirby.” The ‘Fourth World’ saga told the story of Darkseid seeking out the Anti-Life Equation to gain control of the thoughts of all living beings, with his son, Orion, raised by Highfather, opposing him. The Absolute Edition will collect “Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen” #133-145, “Forever People” #1-6, “New Gods” #1-6, and “Mister Miracle” #1-6 as well as extra features, totalling at over 800 pages. “Absolute Fourth World by Jack Kirby” will be released on May 13, 2020.

    – DC also announced an omnibus edition of Garth Ennis’s run of “Hellblazer.” Ennis worked on the series from 1991 until 1994 alongside artists Steve Dillon, Will Simpson, and David Lloyd. Ennis’s run started with a story which saw John Constantine diagnosed with lung cancer and being forced to make a deal with the devil in order to stay alive. The new omnibus edition will collect “Hellblazer” #41-50, #52-83, and #129-133, “Hellblazer Special” #1 and “Heartland” #1, and feature a cover by Glenn Fabry. “Hellblazer by Garth Ennis Omnibus HC” will be released on April 15, 2020.

    – Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced the full details for the home release of Men In Black: International. The movie will be released digitally on August 20, with the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray and DVD release on September 3. The 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-Ray releases will feature exclusive deleted scenes and featurettes called “Alien-cestry.com” and “Neuralyzer: Like It Never Even Happened.” The other features that will be included on the Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital releases include a gag reel and featurettes detailing the cast, the expanding Men in Black universe and the gadgets, weapons and rides. The Men in Black movie franchise is sourced from the comic book series, “The Men in Black” by Lowell Cunningham and Sandy Carruthers. You can see the special features in their entirety here.

    – Actor Sam Witwer (Supergirl, Smallville) has joined the cast of Riverdale season 4. He will play Mr. Chipping, a creating writing lecturer at a prep school that Jughead Jones attends on a scholarship during the next season, who is described as “handsome, bookish and cool,” and “while he’s eminently inspiring to his students, there’s a darkness hidden far beneath the surface.” Riverdale season 4 premieres on the CW on October 9.

    – Finally, “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams has apologized for using the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting to promote his app. The tragedy, which took place on Sunday, claimed the lives of four people, including two children, and injured 12. He told the New York Times, “I dashed off a tweet and did not think about it,” although he also claimed the criticism he received was a result of his support for Donald Trump. The “Dilbert” comic is still syndicated by Andrews McMeel Publishing.
