Titan Comics to Collect Claremont's Marada the She-Wolf

Titan will release a deluxe hardcover edition of Chris Claremont and Jon Bolton's fantasy classic.



Source: Press Release

Here at The Outhouse, we live to make fun of comics, but when this reporter hears the name Chris Claremont, I turn into a gushing fanboy, swooning like Jason Aaron in a room full of hairy Canadian midgets. That's why I was quite excited to see this press release from Titan Comics advertising a new hardcover collection with restored artwork of Marada the She-Wolf by the legendary Claremont and artist John Bolton, who I'm going to assume without any research at all is heartthrob singer Michael Bolton's brother, because that's just how I roll, homies. Check out the trailer and press release below:

FROM X-MEN WRITER CHRIS CLAREMONT AND AWARD-WINNING ARTIST JOHN BOLTON COMES MARADA THE-SHE WOLF!

The fantasy classic collected together for the first time ever! Featuring beautiful, fully-restored art, in depth features, history and never-before-seen sketches and artwork!

Titan Comics is pleased to announce the launch of Marada The-She Wolf by Chris Claremont (The Uncanny X-Men; Excalibur; Captain Britain; Fantastic Four; Gen 13,Sovereign 7) and John Bolton (Man-Bat; Shame: Pursuit; Books of Magic).

Hitting stores on November 12, 2013, comes the shield-shattering saga of Marada the She-Wolf – white-haired, blood-soaked swordswoman and mercenary, object of unearthly desire and descendant of Julius Caesar!

Chris Claremont is one of the best-known writers currently working in comics. His work includes The Uncanny X-MenCaptain BritainFantastic Four and Gen13. During his 17 years as X-Men writer, Claremont co-created characters such as Rogue, Psylocke, Mystique, Emma Frost, Sabretooth, Gambit and many more! 

Claremont has written many classic X-Men stories, including those which are providing source material for this summer’s The Wolverine movie, starring Hugh Jackman, and summer 2014’s hotly-anticipated X-Men: Days of Future Past, directed by Bryan Singer and starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.

“I look through these pages and I’m reminded, most eloquently, just how gifted John Bolton is as an artist, how breathtakingly skilled he is at evoking character and event, how powerfully and also subtly he can present a scene,” says writer, Chris Claremont.

Artwork good.
The rest.... crap.
But the artwork is good.

:-D

True story, back in the 80s, I had a friend who was also into comics. We argued all the time about comics. He was always wrong. He went on and on on how great the Marada GN was going to be all because it was Chris "X-Men" Claremont was writing it. I said it was suck and pointed out that the best X-Men stories strangely always had John Byrne working on them. Friday came, then the day that new comics came out... the weekend passed and I asked him how it was. He was not happy. :twisted:
"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

That's what struck me about the character. It was basically a whiny silver haired Red Sonja. With nudity.

Bolton's artwork was terrific... but honestly looks better in black and white. His Kull stuff was cool.

Speaking of which, are they ever going to release that Red Sonja movie or is that going to stay in development hell for eternity?

Development hell for eternity.

Sadly, they had a hottie for Red Sonja. One that really would have rocked the scanty bikini.

But if it lead to another Solomon Kane crapfest... be thankful.

Was thinking about this movie when I saw the trailer for Solomon Kane: Were these two characters separated at birth?

I thought the opposite when I saw Van Hellsing.

So is Solomon Kane worst than Van Helsing box office wise so far?

Van Helsing did not go direct to DVD as Solomon Kane did.

Sadly any Robert E Howard stuff does not translate well to the big screen. But then he tended to invoke the reader's imagination rather well.
