  • Fall 2017 marks the 15th anniversary of Quirk’s first publishing season. To celebrate, we're chatting with Brett Cohen, Quirk’s president.

    Brett started with Quirk in 2001 before we were even publishing our own books. Over the last 16 years, Brett has been a jack-of-all-trades. He was the first hire on the business side, brought in to develop our operational and financial procedures, as well as manage Quirk’s relationship with our sales distributor. He expanded that work into business development and strategy. He revised our marketing program by developing our consumer initiatives including comic con attendance, relaunching this site as an entertainment blog, and starting our social media accounts. Now, he continues to have his hand in all facets of the business ranging from finance and production to marketing and sales.

  • Fathom Events is bringing a beautifully remastered version of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial back to the big screen for a special 35 anniversary event on September 17 and 20 only! We're positively over the MOON.

  • Idris Elba turns 44 this week and between the birthday cake and the sporadic bursts of confetti at the Quirk Book offices, we’re dreaming up ways to get our silver screen favorite into more literary adaptations. (The Dark Tower didn’t do it for us. Our dreams are bigger.) While we scheme up ways to get Idris Elba’s agent to call us back, here are a few literary adaptations that we would love to see him in.

  • With Close Encounters of the Third Kind returning to theaters with a 4K restoration of Steven Spielberg’s director’s cut, the question on every one’s mind is what other sort of close encounters could there be? From the first to the last, here’s your guide to contact with an alien species.

    September 2 is International Bacon Day. As Quirk's resident bacon enthusiast, I thought I’d share some of my favorite pieces of bacon stuff from around the Web.

     

  • It’s August 31, which means that Life is Strange: Before the Storm is upon us! This prequel to one of 2015’s breakout video games, Life is Strange, tells more of Chloe Price’s story. If you played LiS, you probably remember this blue-haired rebel, whom protagonist Max Caulfield saves from a murderous prep schooler by rewinding time.

    LiS is all about Max and Chloe’s exploration of Max’s new powers, which come in handy for the pair. They’re searching for Chloe’s friend Rachel, but ultimately dig up way more dirt than they intended on the small town of Arcadia Bay...which puts them in danger. Often.

    As we waited for Before the Storm, we got to thinking: what other characters would’ve benefited from Max’s powers? Plenty, we realized. Here are six characters whose lives would have been much easier if they’d just been able to travel a few minutes into the past.
