  5. Hi All Long shot post here but looking to buy Bill Sienkiewicz art from Marvels adaption of the movie Dune. Any and All pages considered...especially any featuring the Baron. They must be out there somewhere Thanks in advance Frank
  6. The Black Hole newspaper adaption’s by Jack Kirby are worth the hunt and are not impossible to find, pages come of ebay semi regular, though prices have been steadily rising and I’ve never seen a full set of the 26 for sale. However there are other avenues, Disney reprinted 6 of the series in Comic Zone Fall 2007 (but sadly cancelled the magazine before printing anymore!), at the time it was the French who got a full reprinted collected together in book form, so if you are just interested in the art, or can read French, ebay france would be your best bet, only downside is that France seemingly had more black hole books published than anywhere else and for the life of me i cannot remember which cover is the one for the Kirby comics, (it’s in my Black Hole collection somewhere i will try and look it out!) Hope that helps, now for those ribbing the movie itself all I can say is SACRILGE!
  7. The film does or was planned to included more religious references, as Booth refers to the Black Hole as something out of Dantes Inferno (one of many quotes in the film most kids would never get) and the shot but sadly cut opening (one of 2 deleted scenes) would have given more info and character background. The Christmas Eve Opening – the start of the film was originally longer, with more dialogue and character points before the discovery of the Black Hole. It establishes when the events are happening (possibly making the religious symbolism at the end stronger and explains the nature of the meal Reinhardt serves them) and more motivation, the failure of their mission hanging heavy on Durant (explaining his eagerness to follow Reinhardt to discovery) and also the romance between Holland and Kate. There was also a planned ending that was even weirder, instead of emerging from the black hole and flying off into the sunset the camera pans back revealing the ceiling of the Sistine chapel with an image of Kates face amongst the paintings and Kate herself back on earth looking up at it. The cut scenes can been seen in various Black Hole merchandise, inc the Power Centre escape, (topps cards etc) while the Sistine Chapel ending is referred to in the book that comes with deluxe VHS tin set. Disney also did at least 10 (there may be more) Black Hole cartoon film strip stories as part of their educational media company for schools Space Mission: Reading kit had 5 stories, three ‘prequel’ adventures of the Palomino before they reached the Black Hole (investigating an deserted alien craft on a acid planet, food tampering on a space station and that sci-fi classic sentient computer guarding an ice world!) that expanding on their movie mission of finding ‘habitable life’ and 2 unseen stories from when they were aboard the Cygnus (one where VINcents memory is wiped and Pizer is sent to the Cygnus ‘hospital’ another from when they are exploring the ship with Kate finding her father’s diary and a flashback to the original crew mutiny!!). Space Mission: Maths schools kit 5 are (4 prequel stories, the Palomino transporting children to a colony, Pizer being trapped in a mine, the crew searching for a cure for colonists stuck in suspended hibernation and helping a primitive race protecting their crops from a volcano. Plus one story, probably the best of them all, set during the film, when the crew first board the ship they are spied upon by sentry's and Dr Durant disappears, it also includes later scenes from the film including the Old Bob and VINcent laser fights and their confrontation with Maximilian). The kits contain the film strips, audio kits, teacher notes booklet and a selection of worksheet masters sadly these school sets are VERY rare and anymore info on them is tough to find, cels and drawings from them do crop on ebay from time to time (there’s one on CAF sadly not mine-( ) Again ANY info on Black Hole merchandise is always appreciated it’s a real weird gem of a film
  8. Ahhh the ending, that been much discussed, a 2001 space odyssey style mind trip where the crew of the Probe Ship see visions of heaven and hell as they journey through the black hole, its truly a freaky way to end what should be a family film. He doesn’t escape at the end instead they 'see' the wild haired body of Reinhardt 'float' into Maximilian, his eyes come alive inside him and he takes up position atop a mountain overseeing hordes of the dammed marching up its slopes, the dead crew of the cygnus perhaps. Really give the film another go, there’s lots to enjoy like some bizarre mix between alien, star wars and 2001, the opening third is the best like a gothic haunted house movie in space and the score and production design are superb.
  9. Man i love the Poseidon Adventure, both as a kid and an adult hmmm got to be careful i dont drag this way off topic, but at least they both star Ernest Borgnine and Roddy McDowall so theres kind of a link...just! But nothing beats Anthony Perkins getting shredded by Maximilian, childhood bliss
  10. Always glad to know there are fellow Black Hole fans out there, the movie had a real range of merchandise produced for it, some of it common as dirt and over produced (topps cards, mego figures, whitman books etc) but most pretty obscure and not widely reported but then if everyone stopped looking for star wars stuff and started looking you never know what would turn up!! Really nice to see those two pages and yes they were published in German and yes the story is not that great, though its a bit hard to write a comic called the black hole when the later stories dont feature a black hole, the beauty of the movie was its location, atmosphere and design, once you move away from the Cygnus it just looses it somehow. But at least they came up with ways to keep the characters, even those dead, in the story. The german issues are quite an easy find, often appearing on Ebay germany should you have an urge to translate and read the story!
  11. I’m a big fan of the underrated Disney sci-fi movie The Black Hole and while i collect a range of merchandise from it I’m particularly interested in the comic book series, even lucky enough to own art from it, http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryRoom.asp?GSub=74628 Now here’s my question has anyone ever seen or own an English language copy of issue 5 and 6 of the comic???? The comic was published around the world with many variations and over the years i found out a range of things, Publicity material for the film states that 6 issues were planned, however they were published in many versions internationally and the 6 issues have varying rarity. The first three issues very common as they were pre-packed together. The first two issues adapted the movie (also published together as Disney Showcase issue 54). The art for the movie adaption has several variations; in the published US comic many of the characters faces are notably different and cartoony from the movie characters, especially Anthony Perkins Dr Durant and Ernest Borgnines Harry Booth. The original art pages for the series had much more detailed and movie accurate faces however they were altered e.g. Durant given glasses and a moustache etc, probably for licensing reasons. The UK movie magazine is different again with redrawn art and rearranged panels, with most pages set out differently and Durant US comic losing his moustache. The series then continued as Beyond the Black Hole, with the crew’s adventures through the Black Hole, while the pre-packed issue 3 is very common issues 4, 5 and 6 are not. Issue 4 is the infamous US issue whose rarity was highlighted in an Overstreet guide article, which estimated around 200 copies existed, unlikely given the frequency of copies appearing for sale (1 or 2 appear each year on ebay, though a decent copy still fetches around $100). Its rarity is likely due to the commercial failure of the film and also that issue being late published due to delays with the cover artwork, (notation on the back of the original cover art). The issue was published in other languages around the world, (as were most issues) with South America having a version with the same cover that’s even harder to find. Issue 5 and 6 – merchandising brochures for the film stated that Whitman planned to publish 6 issues in the US. Instead the stories were published as part of the German comic series. It lasted for 3 issues, each double length (issue 1 has the movie adaption; issue 2 has the US issues3&4 while issue 3 has unreleased issues 5&6). These were not drawn solely for the German market, as the art style and story matches and continues the US one (it concludes their adventures in the alternate universe, meeting Kate's father who Max kills and the 2nd death of Hans who turns out to be a robot!). Now does anyone know of ANY English language versions of issue 5 & 6???, have ANY foreign language issues? own ANY original art from the series? Basically any Black Hole information is appreciated...now just don’t get me started on the animation series!!!
