Local celebrities team up to sign Distortions Unlimited #1at ComicFest

Denver, CO- Distortions Unlimited #1 comic book creator Daniel Crosier teams up with KBPI’s Uncle Nasty, Matt Need, and Distortions Unlimited founder Ed Edmunds to sign at ComicFest. The signing takes place on Sunday April 18th, at 11am at the Hilton Garden Inn Denver Tech Center.

The Distortions Unlimited comic book series is based off of licensed characters crafted by world -renowned Distortions Unlimited in Greeley, CO.

Distortions is internationally known 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 “Aliens” cast from the original molds, as well as designing the stage props for music industry icon Alice Cooper’s Brutal Planet tour.

Crosier explains his motivation to translate Distortions characters into a comic book series. “I grew up near Ed Edmund’s Distortions Unlimited studio in Greeley. I used to tour the studio when I was a kid and was fascinated by their creations. I was inspired by the characters and believed they would translate really well into a comic book series due to their diversity and mythos. My challenge was to create an effective horror genre storyline that seamless incorporated the diverse catalog of characters.”

DISTORTIONS UNLIMITED #1 is a good old-fashioned horror tale. Crosier is both behind the words and art. The story is evolves around chaos that follows a group of miners in Brazil. Under suspicious circumstances, mummified bodies of some miners are discovered. Something in the dark mine mummified these men, something not known.

Crosier based many of the characters likenesses in the series off of local Denver celebrities. Top ranking radio personalities from KBPI’s Uncle Nasty and Matt Need likeness are used. Crosier met the on air duo when they took an interest in Crosier’s wood-burned comic work. Crosier was featured on their show on multiple occasions.

Distortions Unlimited #1 is receiving rave reviews from industry critics. Web giant Ain’t it Cool News describes the book, “What works with DISTORTIONS UNLIMITED is the foreboding sense of dread that permeates every panel. Crosier isn’t afraid to make his panels dark. He’s got a great sense of pacing too. There are a few scenes where a character is staring into darkness that are paced perfectly and make the hairs on your neck stand on end.”

Distortions Unlimited #1 will be available for purchase at the show. However, the entire panel will be available one day only to sign copies and answer questions at ComicFest.

ComicFest is located at the Hilton Garden Inn at 7675 East Union Avenue, Denver, CO 80237. For more information visit www.denvercomicfest.com or www.thothengine.net.

Captain Swift and the Invasion from Dimension X @ The Bug Theatre w/ OFM!

March 5th, 2010 · Comments Off on Captain Swift and the Invasion from Dimension X @ The Bug Theatre w/ OFM!

Science Fiction Melodrama at its Finest

Captain Swift and the Invasion From Dimension X is a science fiction melodrama serialized in 12 cliffhanger chapters, created & directed by Seth Iniguez, and brought to the stage by the Planet X Players. Between these serials will be additional short performances. Captain Swift is running throughout April, 2010, at the Bug Theater at 3654 Navajo Street, in Denver, Colorado, USA, Planet Earth, Solar System, Milky Way Galaxy. Show times are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturdays, April 2nd through April 24th. Tickets are $10, $8 with student or military ID, and $5 for kids 12 and under. For reservations call the Bug Theatre at (303) 477-5977. Load up your entire species in a handy warp-capable starship and come be entertained!

Xerxes Klatar, evil ambassador from Dimension X, plots to assassinate the President of the Galaxy with a robot duplicate of the First Lady. Meanwhile, Captain Swift and the officers of the Galactic Defense Corps rush to rescue the galaxy from an extra-dimensional invasion. To save the day, the heroes must survive a crash landing on a dangerous planet, escape from Klatar’s dungeon, fight a hostile alien, overcome a malicious computer system, and survive countless more dangers that the evil agents of Dimension X put in their path.

Captain Swift creator/director Seth Iniguez’s background in game design and science fiction writing segued to writing sketch comedy and performing for Planet X Players beginning in 2003. Since then, Iniguez has involved himself other significant projects including performing with the stage-blood-soaked neo-kabuki group OFM (Odam Fei Mud), playing supporting roles in independent films, and of course galactic domination.

Planet X Players formed in 2003 from a group of regulars from the Bug Theatre’s Freak Train, an open stage show that has been a fixture of the Denver performing arts scene for nearly 10 years. Seth Iniguez, the group’s founder & creative director, decided to apply his irreverent writing style to the stage, assembling talented individuals crazy enough to help Iniguez pull it off. The five-minute, once-a-month format seemed like the perfect opportunity to tell a continuing story, which was a first for the Freak Train. After the conclusion of the 12-episodic cycle, Planet X Players stayed active, both on the Freak Train stage and beyond, with a variety of comedy, musical, and dramatic skits, often featuring science fiction and fantasy themes. The villains of the play, Xerxes Klatar, played by Seth Iniguez, and his incompetent sidekick Tresdek, played by Linn, have also performed around town as a comedy duo, bringing an extra-dimensional perspective to the quirks of humankind.

Many of the performers from the first run of Captain Swift have returned for the full stage show, including Ryan Pierce as Captain Swift, and Denver’s avant-pop maniac, Little Fyodor, as President of the Galaxy Archibald Proctor. A variety of supporting acts appear between episodes, including the neo-kabuki performance group OFM, the comic magic of Max Mago, the musical puppetry of Pat Angello, saxophone virtuoso Scott Osbourne, and of course, the satirical music of Little Fyodor.

One of the more recent additions to the cast, Meg Spohn Bertoni, went on her first date with Seth Iniguez to watch him perform at the Freak Train. Two years later, the Freak Train stage had yet another first, when Seth proposed to Meg in song. Now the couple is ready to take on the galaxy together, or at least the Denver theater scene.
