Who is The Nobody?
Jeff Lemire is making a graphic novel based on H.G. Wells’ The Invisible Man.
Black Panther cartoon sounds good
Yesterday I said, “If the cartoon is anything like the early issues, I’ll be all over it.” Looks like I will.
Wonder Woman movies update
Doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing Wonder Woman on the big screen any time soon. The Justice League movie has been tabled.
And while producer Joel Silver still wants to do a Wonder Woman solo film, he’s still trying to figure out the best direction to approach it from. Take your time, Joel. I’d rather see it done right than done soon.
I reviewed the first couple of issues of Christopher Mills and Joe Staton’s Femme Noir.
Sarah Conner Chronicles Season Two
There’ll be one. I’m just now getting around to watching Season One on TiVo, so I don’t know how to feel about this yet. I have reservations about the pilot (the only episode I’ve seen so far), but I hear from pretty much everyone that it gets better.
Josh Medors Benefit Auction
It’s not awesome that Josh Medors — who illustrated the short prose story I wrote in Tales from the Inner Sanctum #1 (in addition to many other, more high profile things like G.I. Joe and Fused!) — has cancer. It is awesome that there will be an auction at Emerald City Comic Con to help pay for Josh’s medical expenses.
Get well, buddy.
Why Gail Simone’s Wonder Woman will just keep getting better and better until the world cannot contain its Awesomeness and explodes
We’re all doomed, but at least we’ll go out with great Wonder Woman stories.
Del Toro does The Hobbit
The man likes his fantasy. I think this is good news, but I feel like I know exactly what to expect. Hopefully he’ll do some surprising things with it.
New Dark Knight poster
I don’t know why I’m not more excited about this one. I want to see it, naturally, but I’m not anxious about it. I probably will be once we get past Iron Man.
Still. Very cool poster.
I reviewed Indie Spinner Rack’s Awesome anthology. Among other things it includes: a robot with a fishbowl for a head, a Mexican necrophiliac robot, a couple of talking bears, ice-cream eating aliens (one of whom has a pet flying ball named Greg; the other of whom has a gun that shoot dragons out of it), some enchanted deer, Scuba Archeologist, Frankenstein vs. Popeye, an alien visitation, and one of the scariest comics I’ve ever read (the scariest I’ve ever read involving talking geese).
Still more Crystal Skull pictures
This crop is more exciting than the last batch. Even more at the link.
Possible SPOILERS BELOW in some of them, I guess. This is the last item in this post, so you can stop reading now if you don’t want to see.

Okay. More catching up with Awesome news from Blogarama.
Another Blue Beetle interview
I followed up my interview with the writer of Blue Beetle’s all-Spanish issue by breaking the news about the series’ new, regular writer: Jack of Fables‘ Matt Sturges. Hopefully you can’t tell it from the interviews, but I’ve never read an issue of Blue Beetle before now. These conversations have made me want to change that though, so I’ll be picking up the Spanish issue this week as well as checking out Matt’s run. And I just bought the collection of the first six issues in the series.
There’s a new poster for the Incredible Hulk movie
And again, it’s got a great Bill Bixby vibe that’s making me hungry to see it.
I don’t read Platinum Comics because the vibe I get is that they’re all movie pitches first and comics second. I’d rather read comics by people who just really want to make comics.
That’s not to say that there aren’t some nifty movie ideas in their concepts though, so I’m actually curious to see more about the Atlantis Rising movie. I loves me some Atlantis stories.
Black Panther: The Animated Series
I got tired of the Black Panther comic once it got caught up in Civil War and became a second Fantastic Four title, but if the cartoon is anything like the early issues, I’ll be all over it.
Three Days in Europe movie
Back when I was actively trying to expand my tastes with some genres I don’t typically read, I thought I’d give Three Days in Europe a try thinking it was a Romance comic. It was, but it was also a crime/spy/adventure comic and it was really good. So I’m happy that it’s getting made into a movie starring Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Garner.
New Crystal Skull pics
Can be found here. None of them really grabbed me, but there they are.
Another Spirit poster
I like this one. It looks more like a Will Eisner splash page and less like Sin City 2. I’d prefer it not be in black-and-white though.
New X-Files comics
I never used to read X-Files comics when the show was still on even though one of my favorite writers, John Rozum, was writing them. Comics based on currently-being-produced TV shows are always creatively tied by the need to not contradict the show they’re based on. That might not be as big a problem now that X-Files is an infrequent movie series though, so I’m likely to give this a shot.
Women of DC poster by Adam Hughes
This was a giveaway at the New York Comic Con. Man, I love Adam Hughes.
From left to right: Catwoman, Oracle, Zatanna, Black Canary, Power Girl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batwoman, Vixen, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn.
Supergirl for kids
Fans have been clamoring for a more kid-friendly (or, more specifically, young-girl-friendly) Supergirl comic for a while now. Looks like they’re finally getting it.
Coming soon to a superhero universe near you. I sort of wish they were all gorillas, but how can you not make the webslinger a spider monkey? Well done, Marvel.
