Image ComicsSneak Peek

Marcus Perry posted a sneak peek of the upcoming Descendant series over in the Major Spoilers Forum. Instead of keeping the goodness only for those select few who have taken the time to register and join, I figured why not share it with everyone.

Boom Studiosmark sablePress Release

This is why I don’t carry my copy of the Illuminatus! Trilogy on board planes anymore.  If this is the real deal, things have gotten really strange in this country.  Check out the press release Boom! Studios sent to us about Mark Sable getting held up by the TSA after they discovered his script for Unthinkable. From the press release: Comics writer Mark Sable was detained by TSA security guards at LAX this past weekend when they discovered inflammatory material in a script for Sable’s new BOOM Studios miniseries UNTHINKABLE.

Boom StudiosDisneyPress Release

Here’s an interesting bit of news from Boom! Studios; their kids line of comics will be appearing on the store shelves of the Disney Soda Fountain and Studio Store, right next door to the El Capitan Theatre.  Talk about perfect placement to sell you products! There’s a reason we like Boom! Studios, they are the small guy that is making it big, by doing the right thing.  Where will this deal lead?  I can see the Boom!/Disney relationship expand even further, and it will not come as any surprise when the company announces it will handle all the Disney comics.

I enjoyed Eben Brooks’ Hey There Cthulhu song last week, that I brought him back for an encore, this time with a more comic book appropriate song.

Press Release This July, indie superhero favorite writers Michael Dolce and Marcus Perry join illustrator Mariano Navarro and cover artist Tyler Kirkham for their three issue mini-series exploring the dangerous side of superpowers, DESCENDANT. “It’s very hard to find a new spin on superpowers, but I think Mike, Marcus and Mariano have done it,” Image Comics Vice-President Jim Valentino said. “DESCENDANT is completely different than any other book on the stands, but will be a big hit with fans of SLEEPER, CAPTAIN AMERICA and SECRET WARRIORS while surprising them like no other book can.” In DESCENDANT Rayne Santiago, a United

Boom StudiosThe Muppet Show

When checking the pre-release numbers for The Muppet Show Comic Book #2, Boom! Studios discovered the issue had sold out during the initial release (somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000 issues based on my estimates).  This means if you didn’t pre-order the issue, or don’t get to the store early next Wednesday, you’re going to have to wait until late-May when the second printing arrives in stores. via Boom!

Press Release John Layman and Rob Guillory’s highly anticipated June-shipping ongoing crime series with a sick yet tasteful twist, CHEW, will make its first full appearance in the comic book blockbuster, THE WALKING DEAD, this May. “Having CHEW debut in WALKING DEAD is extremely appropriate considering I hope CHEW does for cannibalism what WALKING DEAD did for zombies,” Layman said. “Seriously, Rob and I are very flattered to have CHEW debut in one of the biggest books out there today. While very different in its approach, I think fans of Kirkman and Adlard’s ongoing saga of human survival despite the

Image ComicsMoviesWanted

By Pooh writer, we’re not saying his work is something for the dung pile, but rather the co-writer of the Disney Pooh’s Heffalump Movie, Evan Spiliotopoulos.  Evan has been tapped by Universal Pictures to write the sequel to the Mark Millar and J.G. Jones Wanted comic series. I’m a little confused on how this will play out.  The ending of the comic book and the movie were both pretty concluding, so whipping out a sequel (especially when the movie ended with all the bad guys biting it) seems to be stretching things a bit.  I just hope this news doesn’t

Big Apple Conventioncomic conventionwizardWizard World

Here’s something that makes a whole lot of sense; your company is letting people go left and right, you cancel and/or postpone Wizard World Texas and Wizard World Los Angeles, so you go out and purchase the Big Apple Convention.  To make matters even more confusing, Gareb Shamus is moving the show to October 16 – 18, 2009, which just so happens to be the same month that the New York Comic Con had announced it is moving to.  If Shamus and Wizard wanted to stir up a hornet’s nest of publicity on a slow news day, it certainly succeeded
