Comic Book Creator & Director Daniel Crosierâ€™s The Exquisite Vanishteer Comic Book Available On Graphicly.com
The comic book The Exquisite Vanishteer, written & illustrated by Daniel Crosier is available on the digital comic book site Graphicly.com. The comic book is the inspiration for the feature film Isolation Man in production at Crazy Horse Studios, based in Denver, CO and co-directed between Crosier and Dane Bernhardt.
The Exquisite Vanushteer comic book depicts the bad day where the Vanishteer, a short-minded, self-idolized superhero has a bad day and accidentally makes the human population vanish. This sets up the film premise where the Vanishteer is forced to resolve his unfortunate deed.
Crosierâ€™s interior artwork was the result of a weekend experiment with ink, charcoal, and the loose cartoon stylized approach.

DENVER BASED FEATURE FILM, COLFAX & 15TH , PREMIERES
AT THE DENVER FILM CENTER, MONDAY MARCH 5TH AT 7PM.
Denver, CO â€“ Director Stephen Santa Cruz & cinematographer Joel Stangleâ€™s feature film Colfax &15th will screen one night only at the Denver Film Center on March 5th. The film is a fictional account exploring a faction of Denverâ€™s criminal underworld as it intertwines with the bounty retrieval business. The film features all local actors including Joseph Trujillo and Ariana Sanchez. Q&A with Santa Cruz will follow the screening and Denver.
Colfax & 15th is about Issac, a young hood turned bounty hunter, who finds himself caught within a hidden web of corruption. He begins to unravel the shady organization of his employer, Rome, a bail-bondsman whoâ€™s fallen deep into a world of criminality. As Issac tries to reform his life, he is led down a path of deceit into an unseen subculture that teeters on the edge of law and lawlessness. Now, with a child on the way, Isaac must use his knowledge of the streets to survive and collect on one last bounty.
The two aspiring filmmakers, Stangle and Santa Cruz, both from Denver, Colorado, set out to make a film that authentically reflected the thriving but loosely monitored bail bonds and bounty retrieval industry in the modern western United States.
Santa Cruz describes the nature of this film and its exploration of a hidden facet of Denver:
â€œâ€¦we wanted to portray a side of the modern west that is seldom seen: corrupt, disenfranchised, impoverished, addicted and violent. Itâ€™s ugly at its surface, but underneath we find the human condition at work.â€
The screening begins at 7pm. The Denver Film Center Colfax is located at 2510 East Colfax, Denver, CO 80206, in the Lowenstein CulturePlex.

Wood burning comic book artist and writer, Daniel Crosier, here. Wanting to encourage comic book stores and vendors to carry Distortions Unlimited #2, set to release in February 2011!
To further promote the book, I will do a custom wood burned store logo for every comic book store that orders 20 copies, or more, of Distortions Unlimited #2. I am also open to booking signing/demo/speaking engagements/events for stores in Colorado, as well as nationwide if I can get hotel & travel expenses compensated.
Here’s the order codes for Diamond, so fans can order through their favorite comic book stores: DEC100789 F DISTORTIONS UNLIMITED #2 (MR)
Canâ€™t find a comic book store, go here: http://www.comicshoplocator.com/
Thanks for your time and support! Below is the Distortions Unlimited press release, media links, and contact info.
Bluewater Productions presents a unique horror comic that revolves around existing full-scale monster and alien animatronics in the new series titled â€œDistortions Unlimited.â€
The three issue series is based off of licensed characters crafted by Distortions Unlimited based in Greeley, CO. Distortions is world-renowned for creating shocking props, masks and animatronics that have been the mainstay of the dark amusement industry for the last 30 years. The company is best known for reproducing the 16ft queen alien from the film â€œAlienâ€ cast from the original molds, as well as designing the stage props for music industry icon Alice Cooperâ€™s Brutal Planet tour.
Daniel Crosier, writer and illustrator on the series, has a unique connection with the project. â€œI grew up near the Distortions studio in Greeley. I used to tour the studio when I was a kid and was fascinated by their creations. I suggested to Darren Davis the president of Bluewater to partner with Distortions to develop another horror comic. Darren liked the idea, so we approached them with the concept. Distortions was enthusiastic about the partnership and green-lighted the project.â€
The entire series focuses on Distortionsâ€™ Rage animatronic. Described as half Neanderthal, half beast, and all fury, the Rage is one of Distortionsâ€™ most popular characters. Ed Edmunds, president of Distortions elaborates of the protagonist of the books. â€œRage has been a fan favorite for years. The sheer size of the piece commands attention and really gives people a good scare. Heâ€™s a great character to base the series on.â€
The second issue of the series continues into the horror unleashed on the earth with the collapse of a mine. The plot was crafted with multiple, intertwining layers that combine fantasy and true-life events ripped from todayâ€™s headlines. Local Denver celebrities, Uncle Nasty and Matt Need from Clear Channel’s KBPI and Allana Rizzo from Rocky Mountain Fox Sports Net have lent their likeness to the project.
Crosier will bring a unique look to the books by illustrating with his watershed technique. All covers and interior pages of the series will be created with graphite on wood poplar panels. The books will have a high contrast, distressed, organic look.
The creative team will also include veteran inker Peter Palmiotti. Palmiotti has worked for a variety of comic publishers including Marvel Comics, DC Comics, and Image.
The release date is for the first issue of Distortions Unlimited #2 will be February 2011.
