INTRADA Announces John Barry's KING RAT

KING RAT

Music Composed and Conducted by JOHN BARRY
INTRADA ISC 434


This is not a story of escape. It is a story of survival.

Intrada's latest release is John Barry's 1965 score to the Columbia Pictures'film King Rat. A project that started out as a straight reissue of the Sony Legacy release from years ago took a remarkable turn when Intrada made a startling discovery during review of the master elements. What initially appeared to be a master of the mono LP program revealed itself to be the complete film sessions. The original Mainstream LP was a re-recording Barry conducted specifically for LP, including many different and new cues just for home listening. The more stark, somber film score had yet to see any form of release. This new album presents both a remastered edition of that original stereo LP program as well as the world premiere of the original film recording. The package includes notes by Barry expert Jon Burlingame.

John Barry's career took off to soarin…

Joe Hill Absolutely Kills with Dying is Easy

The #1 New York Times Best-selling Author Exposes the Sinister Side of Stand-Up Comedy in Hardboiled Comic Book Mystery “Comedy is hard. Dying is easy.” New York Times Best-selling author Joe Hill introduces the world to Syd “Sh*t-Talk” Homes – disgraced ex-cop, bitter stand-up comic, and wanted felon – this December with the launch of Dying is Easy, a new comic book miniseries from IDW Publishing.

Illustrated by Martin Simmonds, critically acclaimed artist of Punks Not Dead, this five-issue mystery draws readers into the dimly-lit venues and grimy back alleys of the comedy world, where every stand-up is looking out for themself, making enemies left and right.

When an upstart comedian with a particularly ugly past achieves stardom by stealing jokes, he quickly earns a target on his back. It’s not long before the laughter stops… and the gunplay begins.

"Both as a writer and as a reader, nothing turns me on like that jolt of discovery, of revelation, when the scattered parts of a …

HARDCORE: RELOADED—AN ACTION/THRILLER MINISERIES THAT HITS THE MARK THIS DECEMBER

Image/Skybound Entertainment is pleased to announce an new action-packed, five-issue miniseries Hardcore: Reloaded—by writer Brandon Thomas (Excellence), artist Francis Portela (Faith), and Leonardo Paciarotti—launching this December. It will showcase cover artwork by Nic Klein (Deadpool).

“To quote a great man, Hardcore: Reloaded is all about that action, boss. It is a celebration and showcase for the most beautiful, glorious, punishing action that comics is capable of, and figuring out a new sequence that would somehow top the one we did the issue before is a challenge every one of us embraces,” said Thomas. “Francis' crisp lines and amazing details makes for some of the most astounding artwork I've ever been connected to, and excited for everyone else's jaws to slam into the floor when they see these pages.”

Once, the Hardcore tech was used to protect our nation, but now that tech is out in the wild. And the only one who can help Agent Drake put the genie back in the b…

Batman’s Tumbler Begins. Dave Taylor Creating Life Size Version #BatmanDay #LongLiveTheBat

Life Size Bat Tumbler In The Works Just as the Batman of the comics and the big screen has constantly evolved over eight decades, so has his gadgets and vehicles.  One of the most visually impressive from the recent Christopher Nolan series of films was the Bat Tumbler. Now, the creative genius of Dave Taylor - who previously brought us his excellent X-wing and stunning Speederbike - is now creating a life size version.

Here’s some exclusive images of Dave’s progress from his own Bat Cave, his workshop in Essex. Which is fitting, as part of Batman Begins was shot in Essex, at Coalhouse Fort in East Tilbury to be precise. It doubled as the 'Bhutanese' prison where Christian Bale and Liam Neeson first meet.

Dave, Essex’s answer to Lucius Fox, explained why he decided to embark on this ambitious design project. He said: “I was asked to make a Batmobile for the 80th birthday year, but the client never specified which version. Those long vehicles always struck me as a bit absurd i…
