  1. MR. STUFFINS ill pick up just for the cover UNKNOWN sounds good to IRREDEEMABLE is also good nice to see waid on most of the comics i kinda want to get toy stoy as well

    • Jerard: Yeah, I’m hoping Hexed did well enough that it prompts Boom! to get an ongoing from this. As far as Eureka goes, the show isn’t canceled as far as I know – i believe there is a new season coming this summer – the Boom! comic series, actually takes place between seasons 1 and 2, which means they can tell stories that they can’t tell now based on how the continuity (and death of certain characters) went with the show. We’ll have to get Ross Ritchie on the MSP soon to talk about that.

  2. I’m excited that “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” is coming out as a series. There has certainly been a lot of Mr. Dick’s work being made into films, which has been wonderful. And it looks like Ellis is going to help flesh it out a little more. Something to look forward to.
