BLAZE BROTHERS

If Pulp Fiction were a comic it would be Blaze Brothers...A SMASHING Freshman Success!
— ComicBooked
 

OPPORTUNITY:  Kill Bill meets The Fast and the Furious meets Deadpool.  The Blaze Brothers franchise was conceived and written as a multicultural 8 book graphic novel series and feature film script - with prominent Chinese Characters created as influential primary characters. Publishing powerhouse IDW released Volume 1 of the Graphic Novel series in October, 2014 and the complete 200 page Graphic Novel premiered at San Diego Comic Con 2016, hitting stores nationwide that same summer.

Although Blaze Brothers will be 100% Live Action,
we assembled a teaser trailer combining graphics from the Comic and like films.

Blaze Brothers is an unapologetic, blood-soaked gangsta tale…The Writing Is Loaded With Gems!
— BleedingCool
A straight to the point, bullet-flying, katana-slicing piece of action that delivers.
— Comic Attack
Blaze Brothers is a high-octane tale of honor, betrayal and good old fashioned badassery!
— ComicBulletin
Straight out of a John Woo flick.
— Impulse Gamer
The artwork continues to be nothing short of awesome, better than a lot of artwork you would see from Marvel.

AWARDS: The award-winning writing and producing team behind Blaze Entertainment, LLC, and Blaze Comics, are Matthew Scott Krentz and Vernon Whitlock III. As early development began on the graphic novel, Whitlock and Krentz entered the film script into two of Hollywood’s most prestigious screenwriting competitions. It placed highly in both. The Blaze Brothers won 1st Prize for Best Action Script in the Annual Fade-In Magazine screenwriting competition, finishing 1st out of 3,200 entries. Soon after, The Blaze Brothers made it to the semi-final round of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science’s Nicholl Fellowships Screenwriting competition, finishing in the top 54 out of 7,200 entries.

 
 
Infused within this action-packed, martial-arts-influenced story are very unique multicultural characters who possess the kind of great witty dialogue one would find from the likes of Mark Millar, Quentin Tarantino and Elmore Leonard.
— CBR
You’ve got the titular heroes’ rocking threads making them colder than ice, with the attitude to match, the first scene (in a church) is delightfully irreverent, and there are times you can almost feel blood dripping off the page.
— Fanboy Comics
All fans of great storytelling will appreciate Blaze Brothers... Multicultural and with a global setting, the novel’s sharp dialogue, layered characters and compelling images combine to tell a story that’s both arresting and keenly relevant.
