XPW Cold Day In Hell DVD Release Update
Big Vision Entertainment has been working overtime to make the XPW Cold Day In Hell DVD release the “must have” DVD of the year. Originally, the DVD set was going to contain the entire Cold Day In Hell supershow, including the Miss Xtreme contest and the Dynamite D “Fallen Heroes” Battle Royal, but Big Vision officials have upped the ante wanting to give fans the most thorough XPW experience possible.
Now, the 2 Disc set will include the entire live event, plus a 45 minute “preview” show which will provide the background and set up for all of the Cold Day In Hell matches, additional vignettes/promos produced to set up the show, music videos, and a 2nd disc packed with classic matches of XPW’s “Fallen Heroes” including Chris Candido, Kronus, Big Dick Dudley, The Public Enemy, Pitbull #2, Snuff (Malice/The Wall), and XPW co-founder Dynamite D.
In total, over 6 hours of XPW action!
The decision to add the preview show and the Fallen Heroes matches has delayed the release. However, fans who pre-ordered the release will have their orders shipped by November 1. The DVD will be in stores nationwide in January.
XPW RETURNS!

Wildstorm’s Top Ten Season 2 #1s

Posted by invizweb on October 9, 2008

Two or three years back I had a chance to meet Zander Cannon of DC’s America’s Best Comics imprint. He was a really cool guy whose writing has made Top Ten one of my favorite comic series and its cast one of my favorite comic book teams. So I give my shout out to the talent and cordial Zander Cannon here~!  Below is an official DC press release:

Written by Zander Cannon; Art and Cover by Gene Ha AMERICA’S BEST COMICS. A new season dawns in the science-city of Neopolis! A new commissioner, along with some new rules, comes to Precinct 10, as Slipstream Phoenix, a rookie cop with an ugly secret, fights for respect among his new peers. Meanwhile, Shock-Headed Peter and the Dust Devil investigate a mysterious, ancient drug dealer, and a very public multiple homicide sets Captain Jetman and Lieutenant Peregrine scrambling for answers. The police procedural crime and intrigue continue in this new series based on concepts and characters created by legendary writer Alan Moore (WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA).
