Depp and King Take a Journey to “THE VAULT”!

Posted in Comics, Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror with tags , , , , , , , on August 6, 2011 by ghostradioworld

Back in June, we previewed an exciting comic book series called “The Vault”.  And it seems we weren’t the only one excited about this undersea adventure.  Super producer Graham King has snatched up the film rights.  And the film will be produced by his company (GK Films) in conjunction with Infinitum Nihil (Johnny Depp’s production company).  Sam Sarkar, the author of “The Vault”, is an executive at Infinitum Nihil.  The first issue of the comic hit shelves last week, and has already sold out!  If you haven’t yet picked up this comic, we urge you to tell your comic store.  The company needs this pressure to get a second print going.

Comic Book Preview: The Vault!

Posted in Comics, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2011 by ghostradioworld

Another exciting new series from Image comics!  We really dig the cover.  Has a strong Peter Benchley vibe.  Here’s what the publisher has to say about the story:

“The Vault” is kind of a contemporary Pandora’s Box story. It’s about a team of treasure hunters lead by two serious archaeologists that are searching for a rumored lost treasure. (And there are still lots of them left out there by the way.) They’re equipped with all the latest in high tech equipment, from imaging gear to robotics to deep sea, mechanical dive suits, they have it all. Not to mention, the means to fend off pirates or rival treasure hunters if the need arises. The search however, leads them to uncover something that they didn’t expect at all and leaves them with a dilemna. Do they put it back and leave it alone? Or do they keep it and open it up?

The series  is written by Sam Sarkar and drawn by Garie Gastonny.  It  hits store shelves this August!  More preview images after the jump.

Posted in Art, Comics, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror with tags , , , , , , , on May 5, 2011 by ghostradioworld

A classic image (above) from Frank Miller’s seminal comic The Dark Knight Returns sold today at Heritage Auctions for $448,125.  This is the largest price ever paid for a page of comic book art at a public auction.  However, since much comic art is sold in confidential private sales, it may not be the largest price ever paid.

The previous record was for the sale of Frank Frazetta’s cover for Weird Fantasy #29 which sold for $380,000.
