It's Monday, and here are a few things of interest I've noted over the weekend.
- Bryan Fuller discusses the end of Pushing Daisies as a TV series, and its rebirth as a comic book series.
- Paul Pope draws butt-kicking, panther-fighting young Spock. Honestly, what else do you need to know?
- Why is there such a thing as a not-for-kids animated G.I. Joe? Your guess is as good as mine.
- A preview of DC's July 2009 lists the full lineup for Wednesday Comics, and it's a sight to behold. Paul Pope on Adam Strange. Hawkman by Kyle Baker. Dave Gibbons and Ryan Sook on Kamandi. Adam Kubert and Joe Kubert (!) on Sgt. Rock. Kurt Busiek and Joe Quiñones on Green Lantern. The aforementioned Wonder Woman by Ben Caldwell and Metamorpho by Gaiman and Allred. And more! That's not a bad lineup, folks.
I suspect the not-for-kids animated G.I. Joe is another example of Geek Entitlement: wanting "their" properties aimed specifically at them. So the 10-year-olds who were into G.I. Joe are now in their 30s, and expect it to still be for them.Post a Comment
