Girl With No Name – Legion M

For a few weeks now, we have been getting teased about the comic book derived from the Slamdance award-winning screenplay of the same name currently in development with Legion M and Co-Op Entertainment. As of a few days ago, we finally got all of the information about the book, and the Kickstarter!! As of the writing of this article, the Kickstarter has DESTROYED expectations set at $6,000, and has reached just over $53K!! If this isn’t more proof, that Legion M is working, then you just aren’t paying attention! Here is the story, right from the Kickstarter page:

On the way to a new life on the frontier, a five-year-old GIRL’s parents are murdered by highwaymen. Orphaned, The Girl is taken in by her mysterious UNCLE, an ex-Confederate turned bounty hunter—not a man who ever wanted to raise a child. But The Girl demands he take her in because she knows that he is the man who will make her parents’ killers pay. And they will pay in blood.

Every day, The Girl pushes her Uncle to go after the people who killed “ma and pa.” At the age of ten, her Uncle finally teaches her to shoot. Like him, The Girl is a natural sharpshooter… a crack shot. She has more natural talent with a gun than anyone he has ever seen. It scares the Uncle to think what could become of her if she joined the “killin’ trade.”

As she grows, the bond between them grows, and he begins to see her as his own daughter.  But just when The Uncle is about to hang up his gun for good, a band of outlaws murders him and burns their ranch, leaving The Girl—now 18—for dead in their burning house. But The Girl survives the fire and now, orphaned once again, has only one drive: vengeance. With no one else willing to go after the outlaws, The Girl grabs her gun and takes justice into her own hands.

“By bringing the Legion M community to bear (and introducing Girl With No Name to an entire new community on Kickstarter), we hope to demonstrate that there is demand for an original story like this. The more traction we’ve got, the easier it will be to get the attention of the talent, agencies, studios, etc. that can bring this franchise to the big screen!

In addition, we believe that comics are an EXCELLENT way to develop a film—particularly one as heavily stylized (think 300Kingsmen, or even Sin City) as director Tanya Wexler’s vision for Girl With No Name. There’s no better medium to experiment with visual storytelling than comics, and there’s no better way to do that than by involving the community in the process!”

TOTLB 097 The Three Amigos

Three episodes away from the magical 100th episode and we are having a blast getting there!! Episode 97 is back to normal form, discussing all of the best in entertainment news. Though this episode does take a darker tone, as we do discuss a couple of controversial topics! PLUS we have two amazing interviews!

DJ Bryant joins the show to speak about his book, Unreal City! Unreal city contains five different stories about relationships; Echoes Into Eternity, Evelyn Dalton-Hoyt, The Yellow Knife Retrospective, and Objet D’art. This is a crazy story that plays on the fine line of hate, in correlation with other emotions! The characters seem to always find themselves in different life predicaments!

Jose Pimienta also joins the show to talk to us about his kickstarter, Suncatcher!  Suncatcher tells the story of a young musician from Mexicali, her figures out that the soul of her dead grandfather is trapped in his old guitar! She must find a way to free her grandfather, by playing the song on the guitar, that he never wrote, plus traverse her young life as a musician! Jose AKA Joe Pi, we might during a panel at Denver Comic Con 2018. He is a very eloquent speaker, and his ideas come from life experiences. Whether they’re in the story, or the setting, he always is able to put something forward that is good, and unique! If you can donate something to the kickstarter, definitely consider donating to Jose!

TOTLB 095 Colorado Springs Comic Con 2018

And one more Colorado Springs Comic Con has come and gone! After the last two comic cons earlier in the year, Colorado Springs was a refreshing change of pace!! Much more relaxed, AND we did mostly coverage of panels, which is new to us! BUT, first things first, we have an interview to start off the show!

We spoke with Russell Nohelty from the upcoming anthology, Cthulhu Is Hard To Spell! You KNOW that we (especially Gabe) are HUGE fans of books like this, and we think you all will get a kick out of it! If you love Lovecraft THIS is the anthology to support on Kickstarter! This book is not a typical Lovecraft style story, and revolves much more around these beautiful/horrendous creatures! With seven days left in the kickstarter, don’t miss out on your chance to support this team, we will be!

The main bulk of this show is our rundown of the panels that we did while we were in attendance! After the main show, listen to our floor interviews with some of our favorite stalwarts at Colorado Springs Comic Con; Frankie Serna, Jessica Barnes, AC Canales, with new to the show Babs Webb, and to end the episode, we have an awesome interview with Ron Marz!!
