THUNDER! COMIC BOOK / POP CULTURE MAGAZINE DEBUTS IN OCTOBER
THUNDER! magazine debuts
this October from
Stormfront Entertainment announces the debut of THUNDER!, the new magazine devoted entirely to the world of comic book movies and TV shows with exclusive interviews, behind the scenes episode guides and much more.
Our debut issue includes a first look at the live action Avengers film, featuring exclusive interviews with writer/director Joss Whedon and producer Kevin Feige. From there we go behind the scenes on the made for DVD animated film Batman: Year One (including one-on-one interviews with voice actors Ben McKenzie, who stars as Batman, and Eliza Dushku, who voices Catwoman); and DC's first foray into the world of CG animation with Green Lantern: The Animated Series. Sticking to the world of DC a little longer, we provide a preview of the next film in the DVD series, Justice League: Doom. This in turn leads to a look at season one of AMC's The Walking Dead.
Each issue of THUNDER! will take a flipbook approach by featuring a different extensive episode guide to a television series. In the case of issue number one, things are brought full circle by heading back into Avengers territory with the most comprehensive guide to the animated The Avengers: EarthÂ¹s Mightiest Heroes, in which supervising producer Josh Fine and story editor Chris Yost discuss all 26 episodes of season one while providing some tantalizing clues to year two.
THUNDER! is edited by journalist Ed Gross, whose wide-ranging credits include Cinescape, Starlog, Femme Fatales, Fangoria, Total Movie, Film Fantasy, SFX, Life Story, Movie Magic, Cinefantastique, SciFi Now and Geek Monthly. Additionally, he has written a number of non-fiction books on film, television and comics.
"For me, THUNDER! is the culmination of a lifelong passion for comics and film," offers Gross. "This is a great opportunity to combine and cover both of them in a way that no one else is doing."
"With the loss of Wizard magazine, we are trying to pick up where they left off. I was a huge fan of their production value and we plan to hit that with this book" said Managing Editor Hayden Cowan.The quarterly magazine will retail for $7.99 and be available through Barnes & Noble and most online venues like Amazon.com as well as local comic book stores.
