Seth Green, the creator of the Top Cow series, The Freshmen, is planning on directing the big screen adaptation of the series. â€œYou know, itâ€™ll probably need a studio for release. My estimation is to make this movie the way we want to make it, weâ€™ll need independent financing. But the nice thing about independent financing is, you know, a small-budget film is $35 million these days. And thatâ€™s about what weâ€™d need to make it.â€ The flick is currently in the script writing stage.Â If this movie makes it out of PrePro Hell, this will be Green’s second job

Or – “Apparently, I’ll Only Be Reviewing The Odd Issues Of This Title…” But, really, aren’t they all a little odd? If you’re wondering what happened to my rundown of issue #2, well… thereupon hangs a tale: I decided after my lukewarm response to the first issue (compounded by the length of time between issues) not to recap the rest of Freshman II, a decision borne out by my overall feeling of “meh” when reading issue #2. So, why am I doing it now? Remember yesterday when I (jokingly) said I should recap something I didn’t like? I went through the stack of
