The quest to find a source of bio-fuels at the bottom of the Arctic ocean is the main theme behind The Deep, a new five part science-fiction series due to start on the BBC on Tuesday 3 August 2010. The action is set aboard The Orpheus, a high-technology submarine sent to isolate and exploit the genetic qualities of the organisms found in the vent fields of the Lomonosov Ridge.
But the last crew sent on a similar mission disappeared, and as well as fighting extreme conditions they soon realise that they are not the only ones out there. What they do not know is if the others are there to search for the same bio-fuel and other natural resources, to salvage the previous submarine or just stop them finding out what happened to the previous crew.
When it was first announced that Scholastic would be reprinting Jeff Smith’s “Bone” series and doing so in color, there was a great deal of trepidation. The black and white series was immensely popular and an earlier color version, short strips that appeared in “Disney Adventures” magazine, were flat. The worry was that the Scholastic books would be an unnecessary and pointless as the colorized versions of classic films like “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “42nd Street.”
So Harry Knowles over at Ain’t It Cool News got a call from Bryan Singer with all kinds of juicy news about X-Men: First Class, the upcoming prequel/reboot (take your pick) that explores the early friendship of Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr before they became better known as Professor X and Magneto and found themselves on opposite sides of the mutant debate.
Two new books based on upcoming stories from Series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures are to be released 04 November, 2010. Each have approximately 128 pages, retain a recommended price of £5, and were written for children aged 7-9, though those of older age might also enjoy them.
