At the con, Dark Horse announced a bunch of new projects that the company promises is the next evolution of the comics medium.  Oddly, only one announcement (made yesterday) features anything to do with electronics. Running down the list, I see one that Rodrigo will like in the form of Age of Reptiles.  Even though IDW Announced its Archie hardcover collections, it looks like Dark Horse is also going to be offering one up.  I’ll have to follow up on this one.  There’s also a new One-Shot program coming out of DHC, with the mighty Conan getting featured in the

During the upfronts and unveils, Fox unleashed the trailer to the upcoming Human Target series, based on the DC Comics series.  Looks like a lot of action and a fairly well known cast of characters.  Let’s just hope Fox keeps it around instead of giving it the heave-ho after three episodes.

The Source posted this Kamandi page from the upcoming Wednesday Comics series.  I really like how Ryan Sook’s art and style, along with Dave Gibbons writing gives this page the look and feel of the Prince Valiant strips from the Sunday comics section in the newspaper. As much as I was going to try and avoid this series, I think this page finally sold it for me. via The Source

I’ve been a fan of Trudy Cooper and Danny Murphy’s Platinum Grit web comic for a couple of year now, and when I saw Image Comics is collecting the series in a print volume, it’s something I had to put on my pull list. “PLATINUM GRIT being published by Shadowline is a dream come true for me,” Shadowline Editor Kristen Simon said. “I’ve been a fan of the web comic for many years now and was thrilled when we were able to bring it over to Shadowline’s website as well.  Publisher Jim Valentino enjoyed it so much he agreed we

AnimationBatmanDCPress ReleaseWarner Bros.

The big trend in promoting comics has been taking a series or issue and turning it into a “Motion Comic”.  This is where the art is scanned or imported into a motion graphics application like Adobe After Effects, and then manipulated to give the illusion you are watching an animated feature.  I’ve seen some really good stuff, and I’ve seen some absolute drek. The latest comic to get the treatment is the old Batman: Black and White series from DC Comics.  I’ve watched the trailer and it does look pretty good, and will more than likely check out the ten

We’ve already told you about Alex Johnson playing Saturn Girl in the upcoming Smallville episode featuring the Legion of Super-Heroes.  IMDB has updated the show’s cast naming Ryan Kennedy as Cosmic Boy and Calum Worthy as Lightning Lad. The scheduled date for the show is in January, which just so happens to be the same month the Legion of Super-Heroes comic ends with issue #50.  Nice timing.  Of course the first appearance of the Legion occurred in Adventure Comics #247, and DC is wisely launching a new Adventure Comics series in February, so maybe someone is on the ball after
