Comic News:
Images' Isis Returns
By Brian Jacks


Left Field Ink's Angel Gate has announced the return of the Image Comics character, Isis, in Legend of Isis planned for a November 2003 release. This is in addition to the announcement that Original Films (Fast & the Furious, XXX, and the upcoming S.W.A.T.) has begun work with screenwriter Luke McMullin (Stan Lees Forever Man) and Energy Entertainment to adapt the comic book series for the big screen.

"This will be the first example of what our management model hopes to be doing over and over again in the near future" said Daniel Alter, spear heading Energy's comic book management efforts. "By attaching Luke, and generating interest at Original, Brooklyn took three moving parts, and married them ... this is really how we want to be working for both our comic book and literary clients ... fingers crossed."

Legend of Isis one-shot debuted as an Image Comics Introduces... title in early 2002. The film is being eyed as, "in the vein of Raiders of the Lost Arc with a memorable female role," commented Alter.

Legend of Isis, created by Darren G. Davis (10th Muse, Zak Raven, Esq.), will be an ongoing comic book series launching in November 2003 through Angel Gate, which also houses Black Tide and the 10th Muse.

"I am excited to bring Legend of Isis back," Angel Gate's Editor-in Chief, and Legend of Isis creator Darren G. Davis says, "Isis is one of the most complex and most fun characters I have worked with. I wanted to wait till the time was right to relaunch her into her own series. With Ryan's knowledge of Egyptian Mythology and Jeremy's amazing art talents, this book will blow off the shelves as the one-shot did. I am also still excited that RV Valdez will be doing covers for us. It would not be the same without him!"

The comic book series also involves writer, Ryan Scott Ottney, and pencils by newcomer Jeremy Roberts with LeBeau Underwood handling inking chores. RV Valdez (Legend of Isis) will be the regular cover artist.

"Im very excited to have this chance to work on Legend of Isis with everyone involved. I think weve established a great creative team and I know that we have a killer story," said series writer, Ryan Scott Ottney. "Darren and I have discussed this project at great length; what we have in store for the characters and where we hope to take it. Hes really a very dedicated person and Im extremely happy that hes given me this chance to work on a great book with such talented people. I just hope I can keep up! Any movie plans are simply icing on the cake!"

Legend of Isis hits comic store shelves in November 2003.
