Comic Book Divas Publishing has been asked about the conclusion of the Alfred Hitchcock “The Birds” parody comic book “SQUIRREL”; We thought that CBDP fans and the fans of “SQUIRREL” should be updated on what is going on with the comic.
“SQUIRREL” #1 was created and written by Jeff Hughes with art by Richard and Elisabeth Zerga of Legends Of Heroes And Villains Publishing in 2011, Tthe comic was released in October of 2012,; “SQUIRREL” #1 debuted at the release party with Legends Of Heroes And Villains at Empire’s Comic Vault in California and at the Dallas Fan Days in Irving Texas.
“SQUIRREL” #2 was initially going to be released in the summer of 2013 and was being promoted as doing so by Comic Book Divas Publishing, after some time passed and discussions were made with the artist Richard Zerga it was decided by Jeff Hughes and Richard Zerga that due to scheduling issues with other projects at Legends Of Heroes And Villains that a new artist should be assigned to “SQUIRREL”
Comic Book Divas Publishing began an extensive search for the new artist for “SQUIRREL” but also had begun a campaign to search for other artists for a “Collaboration Project” by visiting several freelance websites such as PencilJack and also reaching out to our connections in the comic book creator world, one of which was colorist Jeff Balke; Jeff recommended artist David Faught for the comic book project.
Comic Book Divas Publishing reached out to David Faught concerning another project entitled “WANTED: Red Riding”; however after talking to David about “SQUIRREL” and the concept behind the comic he decided that he would enjoy taking over the “SQUIRREL” comic book project.
David is not only taking over “SQUIRREL”, he is going to be rebooting the entire comic book; so you will be getting David’s unique perspective of the comic book and we are sure he will be throwing in his own bag of nutty artistic flair to the pages.
Comic Book Divas Publishing is also changing the title from “SQUIRREL” to “SQUIRRELS: The Chattering”, in addition we CBDP has also changed the title logo.
What hasn’t changed much is the initial .cast of “SQUIRRELS!: The Chatter”, still part of the cast is actress PJ Soles from the original Halloween, Carrie, Rock and Roll High School, and Stripes, actress, host of USA UP ALL NIGHT and the founder of Rhonda Shear Shapewear and the creator of the Ahhh Bra Rhonda Shear,, actress and founder of BioGamer Girls Amanda Dyar, actress Lily Cardone, actress Anjanette Clewis, actress Kristen Reid, and Lisa Davis
Comic Book Divas Publishing has agreed with Legends Of Heroes And Villains that they can complete their version of “SQUIRREL” when time allows them to complete their version of the comic, so fans will have two versions of the comic to look forward too.
For now “SQUIRREL” #1 will remain available on the Comic Book Divas Publishing website, however when CBDP begins production on “QUIRRELS!:The Chattewring” we will discontnue the sale of the current version.
Comic Book Divas Publishing hopes to have an interview with new artist David Faught along with updates and sneak peek of artwork from “SQUIRRELS!: The Chattering”.
Comic Book Divas Publishing has been hard at work re-branding and giving Comic Book Divas a new and fresh look to reflect what the small press publisher offers comic book fans.
Comic Book Divas Publishing began our re-branding campaign by tweaking the original logo just a bit by defining the text “Comic Book Divas Publishing” , we of course left the awesome “Comic Book Divas” artwork by Jason Dube centered at the top of the circle.
We have begun the re-branding with the new logo beginning of course with our titles, as of August 15th 2013 all our titles now have the new logos on our front covers; if you had purchased any of our titles in the past you may want to hang onto them perhaps they day they will be collectors items.
Comic Book Divas Publishing will also be relaunching our digital download editions of the titles with the new logo also featured on the covers. .The download editions will be available very soon with a cost of only 99 cents.
In addition to all the changes you may find a few slight differences in some of the covers of some of our titles, you will also find a few ttles missing from our Comic Book Divas Publishing store such as some of the Miss Misery titles such as “Miss Misery’s A Haunting Desire” , “Miss Misery’s Forgotten Tales” but don’t worry you can still purchase these titles at Miss Misery’s website.. Comic Book Divas Publishing still offers the “Miss Misery’s A Haunting Desire” Comic Book Divas Publishing Exclusive Photo Variant Cover.
Also Comic Book Divas Publishing no longer offers the regular cover of the “Penny Dreadful’s Cauldron Of Terror” comic book, but don’t fret Penny Dreadful fans, you can still get your copy from horror hosts Penny Dreadful’s website at Shilling Shockers. You can obtain the Comic Book Divas Publishing “Spell-Bound” Variant Cover by artist Alfred Trujillo and colored by Jeff Balke at the Comic Book Divas Publishing Store.
Talia Bastille reports from day two of the Wizard World Chicago 2013; among all the fans and fun Wizard World Chicago has a slew of guest panels one f which was a one on one panel with Stan Lee. Talia Was there to cover this panel and gives fans her insight.
From Wizard World Chicago Day 2
“The One-on-One with Stan Lee Panel: A Tale of Hard Hearing, Chuckles and Fandom”
Reported and Written by Talia Bastille
He’s known as Stan “the Man” Lee. The 90-year-old comic book legend attended Wizard World Chicago on August 9, 2013. Lee is mostly seen in Marvel movies as a cameo. His “one-on- one” panel allowed Lee to open up about the Marvel brand and reveal his appreciation for Marvel lovers.
Before the panel started, the audience was told that Lee is hard of hearing due to his age. Many of the answers were short and witty, and the questions had to be repeated, but the audience loved his reactions. His demeanor and laughter made the panel feel like it was a group of friends catching up with one another.
The panel commenced with questions for Lee; fans anxiously lined up behind 2 microphones. “Last year you told me to wait for your cameo in Iron Man 3,” said a fan, “You said it was going to be awesome.” Lee chuckled. He couldn’t remember which cameo she was talking about and needed a friendly reminder. According to Lee, his Iron Man 3 cameo was cut short because the movie was too lengthy. “Robert Downey Jr. better watch out…,” Lee jokingly stated, “They should have cut his time not mine.”
Another memorable moment was Lee’s recognition of the artists of Marvel. He acknowledged many of the staff members of Marvel, whether they were directors, illustrators or writers. “Marvel hires the best [people]…they understand the [comic book] characters like I do or better…” said Lee. Of course, Lee didn’t leave out his fans.
One fan left the panel with an unforgettable story. He was the last in line with his son to ask a question. On top of his question, he told Lee that he lost his leg in a car accident. The man has a prosthetic leg that is adorned with Marvel Comics images. Although the panel moderator told him to show Lee the art at his booth, he was told by coordinators to allow the man on stage. Lee signed the man’s prosthetic leg, and they had a photo-op. Handshakes, hugs and smiles were exchanged making it a heart-felt moment.
I know that when I turn 90 I definitely want to be like Stan “the Man” Lee. In the meantime, I’ll keep writing for you behind this clunky laptop.
