Deadshot has been Recast – Did You Hear? Week of Marc 8th, 2019 – Major Spoilers – Comic Book Reviews, News, Previews, and Podcasts

Did You Hear? is a weekly examination of headlines in the entertainment industry and a take on what they could mean for the future of the industry and (often), the little geeky bubble that we occupy. Last week we reported that Will Smith had bowed out of reprising his role as Deadshot in the upcoming Warner Bros.

Comics Will Break Your Heart: A Novel
Writer: Faith Erin Hicks
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Cover Price: $18.99
Release Date: February 12, 2019
Miriam’s family should be rich. After all, her grandfather was the co-creator of smash-hit comics series The TomorrowMen. But he sold his rights to the series to his co-creator in the 1960s for practically nothing, and now that’s what Miriam has: practically nothing. And practically nothing to look forward to either-how can she afford college when her family can barely keep a roof above their heads? As if she didn’t have enough to worry about, Miriam’s life gets much more complicated when a cute boy shows up in town . . . and turns out to be the grandson of the man who defrauded Miriam’s grandfather, and heir to the TomorrowMen fortune.

In her endearing debut novel, cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks pens a sensitive and funny Romeo and Juliet tale about modern romance, geek royalty, and what it takes to heal the long-festering scars of the past (Spoiler Alert: love).
