Antarctic Press has a new comic book coming out April 28th, that features the likeness of G4TV’s Olivia Munn.
Hollywoodâ€™s hottest geek girl, Olivia Munn, hosts G4â€™s Attack of the Show, but while at comic con, she is attacked by a swarm of fans. Unable to escape, her gamma-irradiated cells explode and unleash the fury of The 50-Foot Womunn. Itâ€™s the showdown of the century! Geeks vs Munn! Letâ€™s get ready to rumble!!
While companies like Bluewater Productions can get away with unauthorized biographies of celebrities – both living and dead – it looks like Munn is none to thrilled with the Celebrity Showdown issue, and posted the following on her Twitter feed:
Theres a comic book out with my name and likness that I AM NOT A PART OF. If I do a comic book, ill tell u first. DONT buy this FAKE one
And it didn’t take long for the lawyers to get involved, issuing C&D letters to online distributor Heavy Ink.Â If you happen to have any artwork from this book, better hold on to it, as it might be worth gold if this comic is canceled before it even arrives.Â Do read Heavy Ink’s response, as it does appear to be right on the money with their comments about public figures and parody.
