The Dark Knight Trilogy: The Complete Screenplays with Storyboards Book Review

About the Book: Over 60 pages of storyboards Symposium featuring the three screenwriters Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan and David S. Goyer discuss the evolution of Batman and the creation of the films Includes the imminent DARK KNIGHT RISES starring Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Morgan Freeman, among others

Our Take: The recent announcement of the Dark Knight Rises coming to blu-ray in December is getting fans of the Nolan trilogy pretty excited.  Well, we have a long time to wait until then, so in the meantime how do you get your bat-fix?  This book from OPUS provides fans with screenplays from ALL three Nolan films: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and the Dark Knight Rises.   This nice, thick softcover volume also gives us some sampling of storyboards from each film, as well.   This book is an absolute must-have for any Nolan bat-fan.

The Tower Chronicles Comic Book Review

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story....



The Tower Chronicles is a new comic book series produced by Legendary Comics, featuring the creative minds of Simon Bisley and the legendary Matt Wagner.  Wagner is, of course, most famous for his original creation Grendel.   Simon Bisley has partnered with Wagner in the past when he did the covers for the complete Dark Horse Comics Grendel: War Child run...which was my personal introduction to that series.  I've been a huge fan of both ever since.  This new comic is like a mega powers of the comic book industry.  Its like the team-up of Batman and Superman.  Its epic.  The Tower Chronicles is the tale of John Tower, a supernatural bounty hunter. His missions lead him into mankind's most dangerous places to banish poltergeists, demons, and other supernatural evils that plague his “sometimes respectable” patrons.  


I had the chance to check out a sneak preview of the comic and the art is fantastic..the writing is great and I cannot wait to pick up the first issue this week!  I'm actually headed to the comic shop tomorrow to pick it up.  The issue comes in two covers a Bisley cover and a Jim Lee cover.  I'm going to get the Biz cover myself, but both look great.  We definately recommend this one and you can watch for ongoing coverage of the series here and on ToyLegion.com.   In the meantime, check out and follow the official Tower Chronicles Facebook page!
