Fearless Dawn:Jurassic Jungle Boogie Nights #1 received a STAFF PICK and CERTIFIED COOL in THE OCT. 2013 EDITION OF DIAMOND COMICS PREVIEWS
FROM THE DIAMOND COMICS WEBSITE
Steve Mannion’s Fearless Dawn has been working her way back into the spotlight this year. If you have ever seen the TV show Venture Bros. on Adult Swim then you’ll feel right at home with Fearless Dawn. The book’s villains are just as quirky and over the top as the Monarch or Phantom Limb from Venture Bros. but the real focus is on our alluring fighter heroine. Mannion’s art has also been showcased in Detective Comics, Batman Black & White, and Captain America Sentinel of Liberty. In Fearless Dawn his stylish artwork lends Dawn her sex appeal and brings a lot of humor to the title.
In May's PREVIEWS we were treated to Fearless Dawn in Outer Space, pitting our heroine against an army of Space Nazis and now we’re getting a second helping with Fearless Dawn: Jurassic Jungle Boogie Nights #1. After the events of Fearless Dawn in Outer Space, the Nazis are settled in back on Earth, and it is going to be up to Fearless Dawn to take the fight to them. Will Dawn be able to put a stop her archenemy Helga Von Krause and her army of genetically engineered dinosaurs from rampaging across the Earth?

Rough House combines the brutal ruckus of Fight Club, the twisted horror of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and drapes it under a cloak of a government black ops conspiracy.
The story begins with an athletic young woman known only as “The Girl” who is kidnapped and thrown into a bizarre world of masked serial killers who torment their victims in brutal underground fights, backyard wrestling matches and deadly mixed martial arts bouts. She soon proves herself able to hold her own in death matches against colorful masked killers with names like “Bone Job”, “Baby Fat, and “Skeeter the Devil Boy”. Once inside the Rough House ,“The Girl” uncovers dark secrets that possibly link her to a secret government program and to the fighters themselves. As “The Girl’s” psyche is worn down by brainwashing and psychotropic drugs, she becomes more and more of a stone cold killer herself. She must decide whether she will escape the Rough House or stay focused on her true target, the ringleader called “Big Daddy.”
Rough House is based on a story idea and trailer created by Mike L. Taylor of Pretend For Real Studios and a feature length screenplay written by Elizabeth J. Musgrave (Farmhouse, Darwin’s Pâté).
The project will be released as a digital first 4-issue comic book mini-series through Asylum Press and later in print as a graphic novel. “I have a long history as a comic book artist and I am thrilled to see my movie concept brought to life on the comic book page,” says creator Mike L. Taylor. “We put together a great teaser trailer, we have a killer script and we’re in the process of doing storyboards and concept art for the film.” “Mike gave me an outline and together we were able to create an interestingly warped world,” reveals writer Elizabeth J. Musgrave. “Each member of “Big Daddy’s” crew is a trained killer, but I tried to inject a tormented soul to each one.”
“We are excited to release this first glimpse into Rough House,” explains publisher Frank Forte. “It’s a dark, twisted tale that delves into what would happen if the victims in a slasher film were bad ass fighters themselves that could give the killers a run for their money…and show the viewer some brutal fight scenes in the process.” The Rough House trailer was directed by Mike L. Taylor based on a script by Elizabeth Fine and a story by Mike L. Taylor. It features Ramona Cast (Rad Girls) as “The Girl”, David Yow (Scratch Acid, The Jesus Lizard) as “Big Daddy”, Devyn Ashley as “Baby Fat”, Noshir Dalal as “Bone Job”, Maria Kanellis (WWE DIVA, Playboy) as “Trixxi”, Mike Bray as “Skeeter” and Carlos Cespedes as “Trixxi’s victim”, Rob Czar and Ganesh Hennings as “Dead Heads”, Nick Seone as “ear donor” and Brandon Riley, Matt Fry, Joel Peterson, Brian Testa, Mike L. Taylor, Ganesh Hennings as “Baby Fat’s fans”, Brandon Riley was co-producer, Mike Spatola was make-up FX Supervisor, Anton David was stylist, music by Fantasizer, sound design by Micah Johnson, Matte Paintings by Brandon Riley.
Rough House the comic book will be available digitally on iPad, iPhone, Android, Kindle, Mac and PC via the following apps: Comixology, ComicsPlus, Graphicly, My Digital Comics, iBooks, DriveThruComics, and AVE Comics.
