Dark Horse has always produced some wonderful licensed series tie-ins from comics to art books to even models. Recently, one of my favorite of these releases was the Avatar: The Last Airbender and Avatar: The Legend of Korra art books. Done in a beautiful oversized hardcover, these books provided a great behind the scenes look at the series with never before seen art and commentary from the crew that created such a wonderful cartoon. But now Dark Horse has obtained the right to publish another, similar style art book based on another very popular cartoon: Venture Bros!

Celebrating Aspen MLT’s 10th year as a publisher and the 15th anniversary of Michael Turner’s Fathom, Aspen held a great panel at this year’s WonderCon in Anaheim, California. This may not have been Aspen’s first convention of the year, with appearances at Amazing Arizona, Emerald City Comicon, and MegaCon, but this was the first convention in which Aspen MLT held a panel. There they collected some of their greatest writers and artists, along with the men that do all the great behind the scenes work, to announce a few new projects and discuss their many great releases and plans for More >

At WonderCon Anaheim, this past Easter weekend, Dark Horse’s Mind MGMT was one of the more buzzed about books. With the recent announcement that acclaimed director, Ridley Scott, was producing the story for a theatrical release through Twentieth Century Fox the already popular title was practically in the spotlight. I had the pleasure of sitting down with the creator of the Dark Horse original series Mind MGMT, Matt Kindt, and ask him some questions about his highly discussed title.
Speak Geeky To Me: Thanks for taking the time to sit with us, Matt. Now where did the story for Mind MGMT More >
While at this year’s WonderCon we had the pleasure of hearing a rather incredible story about a man, taken in his prime, that was full of creativity and some incredible people trying to make his final wish come true. Jason Coffee was a young writer and creator who had been serving his time in Hollywood, working up the creative ladder. Having worked as an assistant on many Sci-Fi TV series, like Babylon 5 and Roswell, Jason evaluated scripts for the likes of James Cameron and even wrote an episode of the documentary series, The Universe. Unfortunately, despite Jason’s great creative talent More >
We at Speak Geeky To Me decided to skip the traditional trickery played out on this fun day here in 2013. Sure, we thought about informing you that Superman: Red Son was being made into DC’s next live action movie or that Angelina Jolie had signed on to play Grace in Aspen MLT’s upcoming Soulfire film. We considered posting about Orson Scott Card being hired at Marvel to write an on-going series involving a gay Hyperion or even mentioning George Lucas’ agreement with Bob Iger to make Star Wars Land in Des Moines, Iowa. But in the end, we just More >
