2011.11.04 – Greg Pak at the Friends of the Dallas Public Library fundraiser

By Greg Pak
Hey, Dallas! I’m coming to town for a November 4 benefit dinner for the amazing Friends of the Dallas Public Library. I grew up in Dallas making weekly trips to the public libraries and I’m enormously proud and excited to be part of this event, which will be moderated by the great Robert Wilonsky.
I’ll be talking about that what, why, and how of comic books — and attendees will walk away with a free “Vision Machine” graphic novel.
Please check it out and reserve your seat today!

More raves for “Dead Man’s Run” #0

“Dead Man’s Run” #0, written by Greg Pak with art by Tony Parker, picks up some more rave reviews. Check ’em out, and ask your local retailer to hold a copy for you today! The book hits stores on October 26.

“Supernatural overtones, check. Fascinating, if slightly goofy, high concept? Check. Terrifically fitting, “Twilight Zone”-type ending for this prelude? Check. A killer creative team to propel us along this insane journey? You bet.”
Gary M. Miller, Delusional Honesty
“…it’s clear that Pak and Parker will be bringing us a story with immense depth of character, an incredibly stylized take on the traditional jailbreak narrative and absolutely gorgeous art. All of that combined makes this book one to watch in 2012!”
— Joshua Mocle, Multiversity Comics
“There is so much promise in this issue alone that I cannot contain my excitement for what is to come!”
— Cassandra Rose, Daily Blam
“Dead Man’s Run is setting up to be the ultimate in prison break serialized fiction. Issue 0 builds the Hellish prison as a character in the story like Captain Romero or Sam Tinker. Pak sets the stage of the ongoing series by introducing interesting characters and an intriguing mystery to keep you hooked. Parker’s art is beautiful and highly detailed which gives the story its gravitas and instantly makes the world recognizable. ”
== David Suiter, LA Examiner
“I haven’t been so excited to have a mystery to dissect since first season of Lost.”
Team Hellions
“I think this book is rife with possibilities, and will certainly be plunking down the dough for it.”
The Mean Geek
“Parker’s art, with amazing color from Peter Steigerwald, really jumps off the page. The smoke, the fire, the shadows; Hell has been crisply translated to the page.”
Comic Book Informer
“…one hell of a story.”
Comic Bastards

A bit more about Greg Pak’s upcoming “Astonishing X-Men” run

Newsarama attended the X-Men panel at the New York Comicon and published a live report — now replayable here. Here’s an excerpt about Greg Pak’s “Astonishing X-Men” run, which begins in November with issue #44:

Pak on Astonishing X-Men: “What is up with that? Storm kissing Cyclops!”
“I love the X-Men,” Pak continued, saying they’re characters that bring a “tear to his eye.”
“This is a book where you are going to see some major emotional repercussions coming off of Schism, Cyclops and Storm in particular,” Pak said, adding that some characters who might not meet up in any other books will be interacting in interesting ways in Astonishing.

Greg Pak and Gale Anne Hurd talk “Dead Man’s Run”

“Dead Man’s Run” #0 debuted this weekend at the New York Comicon. The book will be available in comic book stores everywhere at the end of the month. In the meantime, here are some excerpts from interviews with writer Greg Pak and legendary producer Gale Anne Hurd about the book:

What’s going on in this world that you’ve built with Valhalla? How is it different from our own and how did it get to be the way it is?
“Dead Man’s Run” takes place in our world, with one key difference: when they die, sinners end up in a maximum security prison buried beneath a giant pyramid in the middle of the California desert. No one can tell you if the cause of all of this is scientific or supernatural, but it’s real and it’s here and it’s not going away, so there’s an entire legal and political system set up around this prison, both above and below ground, accompanied by all the idealism and corruption you might expect from any human institution.

“Hell is populated by the worst criminals and mass murders throughout time. So we get to deal with a whole host of villains and this especially interesting female warden,” said Hurd.
