Does this latest teaser image for the upcoming Marvel Comics event "Fear Itself" portend any doom for some of our favorite superheroes?


Tomm Coker ("5 Ronin") and Daniel Freedman, from Corvx Studios, have collaborated on several projects over the years including Daredevil, Punisher, and Wolverine. The two decided to take a step back from the superheroics and try their hand at a supernatural war story with a touch of romance -- "Undying Love." The book is being published by Image Comics and will hit stands on March 30th, but you can get your exclusive preview here! We chatted with Tomm and Daniel about the book, working on creator-owned material, and lots more!

MTV Geek: What is Undying Love about, and how did the book come together?

Daniel Freedman: UNDYING LOVE is the story of, John Sargent, American ex-soldier who has fallen for a beautiful Chinese woman named Mei only to discover she is a vampire. To free Mei from her curse, the couple sets out to destroy the vampire that made her. The only problem: Mei was bitten by one of the most powerful vampires in history...

Tomm Coker: Horror, action, fantasy, romance, etc. Equal parts vampire mythology and Chinese folklore, set in modern day Hong Kong.

As far as how the book came together – Daniel and I met a few years back, I had directed a film for Lions Gate and Daniel was hired as editor. We ended up spending the better part of a year together, sitting in a dark editing bay, talking ideas and stories. Pretty soon we’d worked out Undying Love and decided to write it as a team.

DF: This was right before Twilight hit and vampires were absolutely dead. We felt like, with the right story and re-imagining, the bloodsucker could be resurrected – turns out we were right – just didn’t predict the whole glimmer and rock-hard abs thing.

TLC: Hopefully people are ready for fangs and blood again.

Geek: For Tomm – what is it like writing a comic as opposed to just illustrating one?

TLC: Hands down Undying Love is the most fun I’ve ever had drawing a book. The freedom and control are obviously great and things I don’t enjoy to this degree while working on a company title, BUT the best part is the complete understanding of the story. Knowing why something is happening and how it will effect events to come. It allows you to think multiple steps ahead of the scene you’re working on at the moment. You can plan things. Set up moments that are entire issues away. Stay ahead of the reader. That’s awesome.

Geek: What is the collaborative process like between the co-creators of the comic?

TLC: It really depends what part of the process we’re talking about. Writing was all about tossing ideas back and forth, seeing which ones worked and then boiling them down to the simplest version you possible – drafting an idea over and over again in order to REALLY understand what it is you’re trying to get at.

DF: Tomm and I write at different speeds: I write too fast and Tomm writes too slow so we tend to balance each other out. I’m great at getting an idea on paper almost as quickly as we can say it while Tomm tends to sit with a scene and dissect it until he can explain the “how” and the “why”.

TLC: Now that we’re dealing with art it’s up to me to take the script and make it work as a comic. I layout scenes and discuss, with Daniel, whatever changes I think need to be made. Then he comes in with color and makes what I do look better. Read More...

The Recap: Flashpoint is DC’s big Summer event comic, where the Universe changes so that heroes and villains are as topsy turvy as an upside down thing. The only person who can save the world? Barry Allen, also known as The Flash! That’s all you need to know! On to new things, because this is Flashpoint Facts, your weekly recap of all things Flashpoint, with a healthy dose of speculation.

As promised last week, there’s going to be a little bit of a lull in Flashpoint news between the release of DC’s May solicitations, and, well… The release of DC’s June solicitations. That doesn’t mean there’s no info out there though, and as always, Flashpoint Facts will catch you up to speed.

The biggest news is that Mr. Geoffrey Johns himself – as well as Editor Eddie Berganza, and artist Andy Kubert will be answering questions from fans weekly on DC’s The Source Blog. That’s good news if you want someone to answer, “Will Flashpoint be awesome, or REALLY awesome?” Bad news if you want spoilers or Dan Didio’s phone number, but then, why would you want either of those things? One will ruin the experience of reading comic books, and the other is spoilers OHHHHH MAXIMUM ZING!!!

Anywho, Johns has kicked off the question answer period of our lecture with three general queries from DC press guy extraordinaire David Hyde. There’s nothing insanely revelatory there, but there are these pertinent points:

- You don’t need to read any comic books to get right into Flashpoint, but if you do want to, there’s a significant chunk of DC history you might want to review, including: Batman: Year One; Shade the Changing Man; and Booster Gold.

- Element Woman, Blackout, Outsider, and The Resistance are all new characters; we’re guessing the most popular or coolest one will find him or herself left in the changed back DCU after Flashpoint, unsure of his/her place in the world. Because, you know, that always happens. Read More...
