The Harvester, Epochalypse and A Town Called Dragon slate by Legendary Entertainment producing developing projects. By the date lines, the latter two of these broader spectrum seeming titles queue a due within a median 2014; the former along a 2015 release. Only a look for upcoming releases will not update any sort of synopsis or multiplex times. These Legendary productions are coming to a comic book store near you. And unlike any of the studio's power titles from their animation showings such as --, the upcoming trio prompt the announcement of a partnership with Penguin Random House.

"We want to deliver great comics, and this new agreement with Penguin Random House enables us to be much more effective in bringing our stories to readers. We are very excited by this new venture," said David Sadove of Legendary's Publishing Operations.

While the matters of distribution, sales, production and publishing are part of the overall picture it's the ambitious premises that illuminates the potency these developments optimize such a binding, not to mention catalyzing, partner deal.

Jeff Abraham, President of Penguin Random House Publisher Services, added "Legendary is known for creating some of the most popular films of the past decade. We're excited to partner with Legendary Comics and to help grow their publishing unit into a thriving participant in the graphic novel market."

Come Fall 2014, it's beyond a nick of time fomenting a science fiction-thriller pacing disaster at an Epochalypse scale:

When a mysterious space-time phenomenon causes 600 years of human history to collapse into a single era, an elite team of Resynchronization officers must wage a war against the very laws of time.

A Town Called Dragon leverages urban fantasy out its torporous vampire/witch/ghost tales plateau bringing an action-adventure to the fore: Modern-day America and ancient mythology collide when the last dragon egg finally hatches, and an ordinary group of citizens must unite to defeat it.

Thriller and horror are the twin-turbo impetus behind a modern day plot line coming in 2015:

A supernatural suspense story unfolds when two rebellious investigators discover that the nightmarish urban legend of "The Harvester" is more real - and more dangerous - than they ever imagined.

"Penguin Random House Publisher Services' expertise will enable us to broaden our reach as we expand our ever-growing catalogue. Working with a mix of seasoned comic book pros and some bright newcomers, we are committed to delivering the best new stories, characters and worlds in the industry. The three new titles we are announcing today are just the tip of the iceberg of what's to come from Legendary Comics," said Bob Schreck, Legendary Comics' Editor-In-Chief.

The three titles brought by the two divisions Legendary Comics and Penguin Random House Publishing Services begin this Fall. Legendary's press release reaffirms a continuing distribution through the major company Diamond Distributors.
