New Blog Series To Launch February 4th!

LOS ANGELES, Runic Films is proud to announce the release date for their much anticipated “secret” project: “Captain America! Redefining Modern Myth,” a new blog featuring filmmaker Ben Alpi and writer/artist Rick Arthur. The blog is scheduled to begin on Friday, February 4th, 2011 on


Three years ago, Alpi and Arthur began trading in-depth emails about how they would portray Captain America, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s classic 1941 creation, in a modern day feature film. On February 4th, the pair will open their private discussion to the world.


Alpi and Arthur reveal that “Captain America! Redefining Modern Myth” comprises a thoughtful, complex, substantive discussion of the impact of myth on modern storytelling. “We never thought we’d end up digging so deeply into ourselves as writers and readers to find what makes us really care about a character or what pulls us into a great story,” said Alpi.


The creators promise an easy, accessible style designed to invite discussion on topics ranging from hero myth, film storytelling, discovering character, World War II, comic books, the new film from Marvel Entertainment among many others. “We don’t pass up any opportunity to toss out a funny pop reference and we don’t pull punches,” Alpi remarked.


Arthur added, “I hope fans of comic books, films, television, myths and legends, history buffs, veterans, really anyone will find something interesting in our series. We certainly had a lot of fun writing it.”


The blog will launch Friday, February 4, 2011 on and is sponsored by Runic Films, a production and entertainment company developing original properties for film, television and the Web. Located in Los Angeles, Calif.
