Comic-Con International is staying in San Diego, at least through 2015.
“In the end, we feel this decision is the best for all those who attend Comic-Con and for the organization itself,” said David Glazner, director of marketing and public relations for Comic-Con, in a statement. “We are happy that the community has worked with us to ensure that we remain here.”
A new Doctor Who exhibit in Cardiff coming soon, wow this ties right into our possible trip to England in 2012, how cool would this be to visit this exhibit for a bunch of Doctor Who geeks in a new country. Thoughts?
Aaron Renier has just made a big splash with his new pirate-themed graphic novel for all ages, The Unsinkable Walker Bean from First Second Publishing. In it, young Walker Bean must honor his beloved grandfather by facing his fears and returning a pearl skull to its proper place…but finds himself caught up with a band of pirates and pursued by the terrifying Merwich sisters.
This is very cool news, and think it’s going to be the first of millions of similar planets. It’s a great find, I’m just worried about what will happen when we find planets with materials that we could ravage, like oh so many Sci-Fi stories over the years, and yes seeing humanity’s batting record, you know it’s bound to happen. Thoughts?
A documentary crew follows “working class heroes who exterminate alien threats in deep space.” Smokers sounds like a dream TV series, even before you hear it’s the brainchild of Brian K. Vaughan, co-produced by Sam Raimi. Too bad it’s Fox.
Smokers is based on an original idea from Vaughan, who created some of our favorite comics, including Y: The Last Man, Runaways and Ex Machina, and also wrote for Lost. It’s one of three TV projects that Sam Raimi and Joshua Donen’s Stars Road Entertainment just sold to major networks — in this case, Raimi and Donen sold Smokers to Fox, which presumably means a pilot will be filmed, for possible series pickup. Thoughts?
What’s the next best thing to getting a brand-new episode of Doctor Who right now? Getting loads of teasers from upcoming episodes! And thanks to two scanned pages from The Brilliant Book of Doctor Who, we have a TON of them. Thoughts?
We probably all knew this was going to happen sooner or later, but Lucasfilm says it’s going to remaster the entire Star Wars saga in 3-D and release the movies in theaters (again). You can expect Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace to kick things off in 2012, which also happens to be the year of the Mayan apocalypse. Hm… Thoughts?
