FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

                              REVOLUTION DIGITAL COMIC BOOK TO DEBUT IN MAY
                               FROM WARNER BROS. TELEVISION AND DC COMICS

Four Separate Chapters Will Resolve Series Storylines
For Fans Beginning May 4th

BURBANK, CA (April 15, 2015) — Fans of the Warner Bros. Television series Revolution, which ended a two-year run on NBC in May 2014, are going to get a resolution to the show’s storylines that were left open-ended in the final broadcast episode.  
In response to passionate fan efforts to revive the show, the entire creative team behind the series — including executive producers Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Rockne S. O’Bannon and Jon Favreau — regrouped to create a special four-chapter digital comic book with DC Comics that will serve to continue and ultimately resolve the adventures last seen in Revolution’s second season finale.

Revolution writers David Reed and Ryan Parrott handled the writing duties of the digital comic’s four chapters, after breaking the story in the writers’ room along with the rest of the Revolution creative team, which included Kripke, O’Bannon, Paul Grellong, David Rambo, Trey Callaway, Anne Cofell Saunders, Ben Edlund, Matt Pitts and Jim Barnes. A photo of the team at work on the digital comic, along with a special guest who fans will recognize, can be seen here.

Illustrated by DC Comics’ artist Angel Hernandez, each of the four separate digital chapters will also have a specially designed cover, and will roll out every two weeks beginning Monday, May 4. A sneak peek at three of the illustrated Revolution characters — Charlie Matheson, Miles Matheson and Sebastian Monroe — can be seen here.

The four chapters will each be debuting exclusively on www.ComicBook.com for one week before being made available for viewing on Revolution’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Revolution.  Fans can also use the #RevolutionComic hashtag on Twitter to find out more information about the digital comic.  
Here is the roll out schedule for each chapter on www.ComicBook.com:

• Chapter 1 - Monday, May 4
• Chapter 2 - Monday, May 18
• Chapter 3 - Monday, June 1
• Chapter 4 - Monday, June 15

Revolution creator/executive producer Eric Kripke had this message for fans regarding the digital comic:
April 15, 2015

Dear Revolutionaries, Patriots, and Soldiers of the Monroe Militia,

So first of all—thank you.  Seriously.  Sincerely.  The loyalty you’ve shown REVOLUTION these past months has been touching and overwhelming—it’s meant more to me than you’ll ever know.  And in case you were wondering—yes, we’ve been listening.  We’ve read the tweets.  We’ve seen the incredible petition.  We’ve followed #RelocateRevolution.  Please know that you’ve been heard.  

And solely because of your efforts, we wanted to pay you back—to give you something fantastic.  And while, unfortunately, we simply can’t make more episodes of the show (alas, there are financial realities we can’t overcome), we can do the next best thing.  Which is end the story.  On our terms.  Exactly the way we would have.    

So J.J., Jon and I are pleased and proud to announce the REVOLUTION endgame:  a four-issue series coming soon from DC Comics.  If you take a look at the attached photo, you’ll see that we brought back the entire writing staff to work on it.  The band’s back together!  (And if you study the photo closely, you’ll notice a certain young, plucky Matheson who also joined us).  Everyone has generously agreed to work for little or no money.  They’re doing it, because like you, they’re passionate about this story and want to see it end correctly.  

So stay tuned.  We’ve got lots of work to do.  We’ll keep you posted—in the coming months, you can expect more details, sneak peeks, and early artwork.  But Miles, Monroe, Rachel, Charlie, Aaron, Neville and the rest will return for the epic finale to the REVOLUTION storyline.  We hope you’re as excited as we are.  

And again—thank you.  This is because of you.  This is for you.

Much love,
Kripke

I FOUND THE BAD-ROBOT IN LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE.

It’s sitting on the corner of the dumpster right before Simon sprays Gaeta in the face. You can see it for a split second as the camera moves across Simon.

I am terrible with screencaps, so if anyone wants to grab the scene and circle the robot, please do!

It only took me 1 and a ¼ rewatches, lmao. The things I do for….why do I do it?

Bad robot! Got my first ever crew coat from work today and I am geeking out! Wish I could post the full coat, but it has a lot of show artwork/embroidery on it that hasn’t been released yet. Fingers crossed it gets picked up, I would love to work on it again. #pilot #ilovemyjob #705 #badrobot #unionandproud #westworld #hbo #costumerlife #tv #industry #crew

Great pieces and pre-opening sales for @bennett_slater @audrey_pongracz @drilone @joeyspiotto and @roozilla (clockwise from top left) at @galleries1988’s #badrobot show.

Bad Robot Art Show

There are two things that I openly love: supporting charitable organizations and Bad Robot. So on occasion when the two merge, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to attend or contribute. 

Last week the official Bad Robot art show opened at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. Not only does it feature stunning original pieces highlighting the various film and television projects produced by Bad Robot, the proceeds from the art sale will benefit The Mission Continues. I continue to be extremely impressed by the very generous spirit of Bad Robot, as they host and support many charity events year-round. 

To be honest, the primary reason that I buy unique pop culture items is to try and get them signed and then save them for my future Cancer Gets LOST charity events. That being said, I do hold on to certain pieces for my own collection!

Here are the items I was fortunate to able to purchase from the Bad Robot show (with help from my CGL co-founder Jared)! Most will be featured in our next CGL event, but some will adorn my very geeky office wall.
