PREVIEW: 'Nuclear Family' #1 by Stephanie Phillips, Tony Shasteen, and JD Mettler

 America, 1957. Elvis dominates the airwaves and apple pie is served after every meal. But, with the dark cloud of nuclear holocaust looming, Korean War vet Tim McClean’s major concern is taking care of his family in the atomic age. When the first bomb does drop on an unexpecting Midwest city, Tim and his family find themselves plunged into a strange new world, where what’s left of the United States has gone underground while continuing to wage war on Russia with unthinkable tactics. Based on Philip K. Dick’s short story Breakfast at Twilight , NUCLEAR FAMILY is written by  Stephanie Phillips ( Butcher of Paris, Heavy Metal , ARTEMIS AND THE ASSASSIN, RED ATLANTIS) and illustrated by Tony Shasteen ( Star Trek ).

'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Continues to Diversify with the Casting of Harrier and Revolori


Described as a "significant role," Laura Harrier (One Life to Live) has joined the cast of Sony/Marvel's 'Spider-Man: Homecoming.' Also, Tony Revolori (Dope) has been added as Peter Parker's high school nemesis (but not a villain) named Manuel.

With Tom Holland debuting as Parker/Spider-Man in May's 'Captain America: Civil War' and has already been critically applauded as the "best cinematic Spidey to date," the Jon Watts-directed solo film continues to fill out its casting sheet. Marisa Tomei will play Aunt May, Zendaya will play a character named Michelle, and talks have reportedly started taking place with Michael Keaton (Batman) to be the film's major supervillain. The movie takes Parker back to his comic book high school roots starring an age appropriate Holland. 

Besides the daytime soap, Harrier has starred with Anna Kendrick in the musical 'The Last Five Years' and just filmed Steve McQueen‘s HBO drama pilot 'Codes of Conduct.'

Revolori starred as Ralph Fiennes’ sidekick in the Wes Anderson-directed Grand Budapest Hotel, co-starred in the indie hit Dope, and will next be seen in Lowriders, releasing June 1. 

Spider-Man: Homecoming arrives in theaters on July 7, 2017.
