Darby Pop

Darby Pop

Darby Pop Publishing was founded in 2013 by multiple Emmy Award winning writer/producer Jeff Kline (TRANSFORMERS: PRIME, G.I. JOE RENEGADES, JACKIE CHAN ADVENTURES) as an outlet for high-concept, high-quality visual storytelling.  Kline recruited talent from a small circle of friends — writers and artists with whom he’d worked in both live-action and animation — by asking: “Have you ever had an idea you were convinced would make a killer comic book?”

Darby Pop began as IDW’s first creator-owned imprint. Eleven original series and 60+ issues/TPs have been published to date.  Creators have included Eric Garcia (CITY: THE MIND IN THE MACHINE), John Raffo (THE 7TH SWORD), Scott Marder/Rob Rosell/Jack Lambert (DOBERMAN), Matthew Federman & Stephen Scaia (DEAD SQUAD), and Kline himself (INDESTRUCTIBLE). In July 2015, Darby Pop partnered with Magnetic Press and released its sixth series SIDE-KICKED by Russell Brettholtz in October 2015, its seventh series DEAD MAN’S PARTY by Jeff Marsick in January 2016, and its eighth series FAKE EMPIRE by Eric Palicki in May 2016. Its ninth series THE LIVING FINGER by Garth Matthams released in July 2016. In October 2015, Darby Pop announced a collaboration with Bruce Lee Entertainment to produce BRUCE LEE: THE DRAGON RISES, which chronicles the return of the beloved actor, philosopher, teacher, and — of course — martial artist in a present-day, all-ages comedy/action/adventure.

Comics legend Howard Chaykin, Eisner Award winner Andrew Robinson, Emmy Award winners Jose Lopez, David Hartman, and Walter Gatus, Bernard Chang, Tony Fleecs and many others have delivered cover art.  And interiors have been laid out and/or drawn by a number of TRANSFORMERS series veterans (among many other talented artists) including Brandon McKinney, Kirk Van Wormer, Kevin Altieri, and Matthew Humphreys.

Former Marvel and Top Cow editor David Wohl helped with the company’s start-up; industry veteran Renae Geerlings is Darby Pop Publishing’s current Managing Editor.

As Kline has been quoted as saying:  “It seems like a lot of people currently working in the comic book industry are hoping to use the experience as a stepping stone to movies or television.   At Darby Pop Publishing, most of our talent is already well-established in those fields; they desperately WANT to be making comics!”

Jeremy Shada

Jeremy Shada

Jeremy Shada is an American actor, musician and singer who is best known for his work as the voice of Finn the Human from the American animated television series Adventure Time. He is also known for starring as various characters in the sketch-comedy series Incredible Crew.

He began acting at the age of seven soon after moving to Los Angeles with his family. He was inspired to act by his older brother Zack Shada, who had begun acting himself. Jeremy initially appeared in commercials. Later on, he began auditioning for voice acting and theatrical performances, taking the advice from a voice over agent. His first live action theatrical role was as Young Kurt Diamond in No Rules. He has since appeared in additional live action and voice acting roles, such as playing Charlie Pace in childhood flashbacks on Lost.

In 2009, Jeremy’s agent approached him with the idea of auditioning for the role of Finn. Both recognized that Zack Shada had been the original voice of Finn in the pilot episode of Adventure Time three years before. After viewing the pilot on YouTube, Shada matched his voice with the voice of Zack Shada in auditions with Adventure Time's creator Pendleton Ward and the show's producers, earning him the Finn role. In 2012, Shada joined the cast of Nick Cannon's sketch-comedy series, Incredible Crew. In June 2012, to promote Incredible Crew's 2013 premiere, Cartoon Network released a music rap video titled "Running Errands with My Mom" which features Shada performing and rapping the lyric. The video has since generated over one million views.

Because of his acting schedule, Shada was homeschooled. Answering fan questions on his Facebook page, Shada indicated that he graduated from high school early in May 2013.

On July 21, 2014, Jeremy Shada announced that he is a member of Los Angeles-based pop punk band Make Out Monday. The band also consists of Jeremy's brother Zack Shada and friends Logan Charles, John Spicer and Seth Renken. Make Out Monday has performed at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con.

Primarily a classical stage actor, Glover trained at the National Youth Theatre, performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company and became a familiar face to British television viewers by appearing in many popular series during the 1960s and 1970s. His talent for accents and cold expression made him an ideal choice for playing refined villains. During the 1980s, Glover achieved some fame in Hollywood by playing roles including General Maximilian Veers in Star Wars: Episode V : The Empire Strikes Back (1980), the James Bond villain Aristotle Kristatos in For Your Eyes Only (1981), Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), and Brian Harcourt-Smith in The Fourth Protocol (1987).

Sylvester McCoy

Sylvester McCoy

Sylvester McCoy (born Percy James Patrick Kent-Smith: 20 August 1943) is a Scottish actor, best known for playing
the seventh incarnation of the Doctor in the long-running science fiction television series Doctor Who from 1987 to 1989—the final Doctor of the original run—and briefly returning in a television film in 1996, as well as for his role as the wizard Radagastthe Brown in Peter Jackson's film adaptations of The Hobbit.

He was born Percy James Patrick Kent-Smith in Dunoon, on the Cowal peninsula, to an Irish mother and English father, killed in action in World War II a couple of months before his son was born. His maternal grandmother was from Portadown, Northern Ireland. He was raised religious, but is now an atheist.

He was raised primarily in Dunoon where he attended St. Mun';s School. He then studied for the priesthood at Blair's College, a seminary in Aberdeen between the ages of 12 and 16, but he gave this up and continued his education at Dunoon GrammarSchool. After he left school he moved to London where he worked in the insurance industry for 5 years. He worked in The Roundhouse box office for a time, where he was discovered by Ken Campbell.

He came to prominence as a member of the experimental theatre troupe "The Ken Campbell Roadshow". His best known act was as a stuntman character called "Sylveste McCoy" in a play entitled An Evening with Sylveste McCoy (the name was coined by actor Brian Murphy, part of the Roadshow at the time), where his stunts included putting a fork and nails up his nose and stuffing ferrets down his trousers, and setting his head on fire. As a joke, the programme notes listed Sylveste McCoy as played by "Sylveste McCoy";and, after a reviewer missed the joke and assumed that Sylveste McCoy was a real person, Kent-Smith adopted this as his stage name. Some years later, McCoy added an "r" to the end of "Sylveste", in part because of the actors' superstition that a stage name with thirteen letters was unlucky.

Notable television appearances before he gained the role of the Doctor included roles in Vision On (where he played Pepe/Epep, a character who lived in the mirror), an O-Man in Jigsaw and Tiswas. He also appeared in Eureka, often suffering from the inventions of Wilf Lunn and as Wart, assistant to StarStrider in the CITV series of the same name. McCoy also portrayed, in one-man shows on the stage, two famous movie comedians: Stan Laurel and Buster Keaton. He also appeared as Henry "Birdie" Bowers in the 1985 television serial about Scott';s last Antarctic expedition, The Last Place on Earth. McCoy also had a small role in the 1979 film Dracula opposite Laurence Olivier and Donald Pleasence and has sung with the Welsh National Opera.

McCoy became the Seventh Doctor after taking over the lead role in Doctor Who in 1987 from Colin Baker. He remained on the series until it ended in 1989, ending with Survival. As Baker declined the invitation to film the regeneration scene, McCoy briefly wore a wig and appeared, face-down, as the 6th Doctor. He played the Doctor in the 1993 charity special Dimensions in Time, and again in 1996, appearing in the beginning of the Doctor Who television movie starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor. In his first series, McCoy, a comedy actor, portrayed the character with a degree of clown-like humour, but script editor Andrew Cartmel soon changed that when fans argued that the character (and plots) were becoming increasingly lightweight. The Seventh Doctor developed into a much darker figure than any of his earlier incarnations, manipulating people like chess pieces and always seeming to be playing a deeper game. A distinguishing feature of McCoy's performances was his manner of speech. He used his natural slight Scottish accent and rolled his rs. At the start of his tenure he used proverbs and sayings adapted to his own ends (e.g. "There's many a slap twixt cup and lap" – Delta and the Bannermen), although this characteristic was phased out during the later, darker series of his tenure. In 1990, readers of Doctor Who Magazine voted McCoy's Doctor "Best Doctor", over perennial favourite Tom Baker

In November 2013 McCoy co-starred in the one-off 50th anniversary comedy homage The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot. McCoy began filming for The Hobbit, A three-part adaptation of the book, in 2011. He portrayed the wizard Radagast, alongside fellow King Lear actor Ian McKellen who reprised his role as Gandalf.

Although the character of Radagast is only alluded to in The Hobbit, and only a minor character in The Lord of the Rings, the part has been expanded for the films.

McCoy has recently filmed apart for the Netflix science fiction series Sense8.
