Chad Michael Ward Print Sale

July 27th, 2009 | people I know

Chad Michael Ward’s doing an emergency print sale to cover some sudden medical costs, selling his stuff cheaper than it’s ever been. Right now, he’s banging them out for $15 per print and $5 shipping. Domestic US-only, right now, but I’m betting that if you emailed him (his email’s at the link too, and you have to email him to order the prints anyway) you could probably work something out.

EXCALIBUR/Untitled Arthurian Project

July 27th, 2009 | Work

I was actually cleared to talk about this at San Diego, but all the press I did there was Japanese-oriented for the Marvel Anime deal… so I’m going to mention it here, to say I did, and to maybe make up for that by giving the comics news sites something to post post-SDCC.

I’m writing a film treatment for Hollywood Gang, who co-produced Frank Miller’s 300. Hollywood Gang have previously optioned my graphic novel (with Chris Sprouse) OCEAN.

On my desk, the treatment is called Untitled Arthurian Project.

On their desk, the project is called EXCALIBUR.

I’m working directly with Gianni Nunnari, Oliver Kramer and Craig Flores (whom I was delighted to bump into on the Warner’s lot the other day) and having a great time.

So… yeah. Movie stuff. Other things to talk about soon. I’ve been sitting on that one for months.

Marvel Anime: IRON MAN

July 27th, 2009 | Work

This is the second of the two teaser pieces shown at San Diego on Friday. This is the test animation for the IRON MAN anime series I’m writing, produced for the south east Asian market. Note test animation: it’s intended to show off the style of the piece only. Nothing in here reflects the actual content, just the design and the aesthetic and the animation. The only character in this piece that is in the actual series is Iron Man himself, okay?


Marvel Anime: WOLVERINE

July 27th, 2009 | Work

This is the first of the two teaser pieces shown at San Diego on Friday. This is the test animation for the WOLVERINE anime series I’m writing, produced for the south east Asian market. Note test animation: it’s intended to show off the style of the piece only. Nothing in here reflects the actual content, just the design and the aesthetic and the animation. The story itself will be loosely based on the WOLVERINE miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller from the early 1980s. This animation was directed by the legendary Rintaro, I believe.

It’s a little…different.
