THE CROW RETURNS TO ITS ROOTS: A new series of comic books due out in 2012


While talks of the planned re-make are not moving forward, its great to hear that the cult figure of  The Crew is returning to the genre that made the character so famous.  Lets not forget, while the Brandon Lee film from the 90’s gave the hero worldwide fame, it actually did have a massive fan base before that, because of a huge cult comic strip from James O’Barr’s.

A press release which thrilled those at Comic-Con had this to say:

At San Diego Comic-Con today, IDW Publishing announced an all-new series of The Crow comics, beginning in 2012. IDW Publishing will produce several comics series in the universe of James O’Barr’s classic The Crow comics and based on the upcoming feature film. Additionally, IDW will offer collector’s editions of all existing The Crow comics.

“I’m glad to see The Crow land at IDW,” said Ted Adams, the company’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “I edited the last Crow series when I ran Todd McFarlane’s comics in the late ‘90’s, and we’re looking forward to bringing this classic character back to the medium in 2012 at IDW.”

Awesome news for die-hard fans of the franchise……

Since my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!
