Upcoming Book From Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and Titan Books Gives Exclusive Look at New Sci-Fi Epic


Showcasing the most eagerly awaited film of 2012, the latest book from Titan Books and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, PROMETHEUS: THE ART OF THE FILM, has created such a demand from fans that the book is already being re-printed for a third run prior to its publication date on June 12th  [UK: June 8 2012]. As the only book to directly tie in to the film, this lavish title serves as an exclusive guide to never-before-seen content, including newly revealed production art, exclusive interviews, extraordinary behind-the-scenes material and an introduction by legendary director Ridley Scott.

Written by Mark Salisbury, PROMETHEUS: THE ART OF THE FILM, offers fans the opportunity to delve deeper into this epic science-fiction production. Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define.  With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. The film releases from Twentieth Century Fox in 3D in theaters June 8th and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron.

"While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place," Scott explains. "The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn't be more pleased to have found the singular tale I'd been searching for, and finally return to this genre that's so close to my heart." 

The book is currently available for pre-order at


Mark Salisbury is the former editor of Britain's top-selling movie magazine, Empire, and author of a number of movie books, including Alice in Wonderland: A Visual Companion and Burton on Burton.

Mutant bounty hunter Durham Red returns to 2000 AD

She’s the bounty hunter with bite, the one and only Strontium Bitch - and she’s back in the pages of 2000 AD this week!
Durham Red, the bounty hunter whose mutation gives her a vampiric lust for blood, is back and this time she’s bloodier than ever.

Beginning in Prog 1784, The ‘Nobody Wants This Job’ Job story has been drawn by Durham Red co-creator, Carlos Ezquerra, and sees Red take on her very first commission as a Search/Destroy agent - which if she’s not careful could end up being her last!

Originally created in 1987 by John Wagner, Alan Grant, and Carlos Ezquerra for the popular long-running series Strontium Dog, Red remains one of the strip’s most popular characters alongside Johnny Alpha and Wulf Sternhammer.
Strontium 90 fall out. In this divided society, the only job open to mutants is as bounty hunters, the so-called Strontium Dogs, who hunt criminals across the galaxy.

Last seen in a series of far future epics written by Dan Abnett, in which she awoke from cryogenic suspension to find that she was being worshipped by a sect of mutants. Grant has now returned Durham
In a world devastated by the aftermath of an atomic war, a genetic apartheid is created where unaffected ‘norms’ discriminate against ‘muties’, whose bodies have been warped by radioactive Red to her blood-soaked roots in a story set in her first days as a mutant bounty hunter.

2000 AD Prog 1785, priced £2.35, hits UK newsstands this Wednesday and will be available digitally worldwide from this Friday. Physical copies will be available in North America from 13th June.

How many changes from our baseline reality do you have to make before a story qualifies as Science Fiction??

I'm not being judgement as to what, that can always be done based on feedback, just the number of changes involved.

Is there a dividing line??

In just a few short days, Flesk Publications will be exhibiting at the inaugural "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!" event in Kansas City, Missouri, running from May 18-20. Please bear with us: this event is somewhat staggering in scope, and there is a great deal to cover…

Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!

This event is conceived and organized by Cathy and Arnie Fenner as a live extension of their industry shaping annual, Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art. Like its published inspiration, "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!" is a melting pot of artistic talent. Featuring 200 art exhibitors, panel discussions, lectures, live painting demonstrations, and portfolio reviews by renowned art directors from the world's leading creative companies, this is the art event for everyone: artists, students, collectors, and fans-who love fantastic art in all its incarnations.

"Spectrum is about embracing diversity," explain the Fenner's, "'Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!' will open the doors to everyone, with the distinctly positive goal of increasing the awareness, appreciation and opportunities of and for artists of all sensibilities."

Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! Commemorative Art Book

In addition to our role as an exhibitor, Flesk Publications was asked to produce a book that would commemorate this event. Flesk’s Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! hardcover art book explores the work of the show’s five special guests, each a master in contemporary fantastic art. This lavish edition illuminates the art of:

Android Jones, cutting-edge creator, live-stage digital painter at music and art festivals around the world and co-founder of Massive Black. He has created concept art for industry powerhouses such as Nintendo and Industrial Light & Magic.
Brom, an artist whose distinctive vision has been applied to novels, games, comics and film. He's created a series of award-winning horror novels that he both writes and illustrates, titled The Child Thief, The Plucker and The Devil's Rose.
Iain McCaig, world-renowned illustrator, director, storyboard artist, concept artist and character designer. His best-known designs are of the iconic Star Wars characters Darth Maul and Padme Amidala.
Phil Hale, prolific in both the commercial and fine-arts fields, he boasts clients ranging from Microsoft to Playboy. His fine art has been exhibited in galleries across Europe as well as on the walls of Westminster Abbey.
Mike Mignola--writer, artist, designer and concept artist--is the creator of Hellboy, B.P.R.D. and the Amazing Screw-On Head. He is perhaps one of the most respected figures in contemporary comics.

Individually, these artists are peerless in vision and style. Collectively, they represent a rich cross-section of the best in contemporary art. This fine-art companion to "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!" is a lush, unique study of an incomparable collection of artists. It is limited to 2000 copies.

There will be a book signing at the Flesk booth #500 on Saturday from 2:30-4:00. All five contributing artists will be in attendance.

The Artists of Flesk Prime

Also in attendance will be the five incomparable artists of Flesk Prime, an introduction to five of the top artists that make up the current artistic core of Flesk Publications.

Craig Elliott, visual development artist, character designer and concept artist having worked primarily for Disney and DreamWorks;
Gary Gianni, Eisner Award winning for his illustrator of a wide variety of books, including The Complete Conan of Cimmeria, Michael Chabon’s Gentlemen of the Road, and the Prince Valiant Sunday comic strip;
Petar Meseldzija, illustrator and fine artist of works including covers for books of children's fantasy literature for Scholastic, and Flesk’s The Legend of Steel Bashaw;
 Harvey and Eisner Award-winning Mark Schultz, American cartoonist, illustrator and writer, perhaps best known as the creator of Xenozoic Tales and his writing for the newspaper strip Prince Valiant; and
William Stout, one of America’s foremost fantasy and film artists, dinosaur muralists and illustrators, having contributed to over thirty films including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, Walt Disney’s Dinosaur and Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth.

Each of the book’s over seventy-five illustrations are handpicked by the artists themselves, specifically for this collection; a unique and personal exploration of this varied and unparalleled group of artists.

All five artists will be signing copies of Flesk Prime at the show.
