Well, I was all set to give you a pick of the week this week, but that was before I forgot that this week was Comicon. And while there were some good books released this week, all the great things “announced” (let’s not kid ourselves, a lot of this was rumored or known to those that know how to find it weeks ahead) this weekend led me to change up the format for this week. So this week, I’m going to leave you with a link dump of the announcements or happenings at Comicon that excited, shocked, amused, or generally made me happy.
Marvel resurrects Crossgen?-The first thing Disney utilizes Marvel for (or is it the other way around?), and while I wasn’t a huge fan of the company, I appreciated their line’s diversity, and I loved Ruse.
A list of this year’s Eisner winners-Some nice winners this year, and I was really glad with best new series, best limited series, best adaption, and penciller/inker.
Batman Inc.-Just when I figured I would be able to leave with Morrison’s departure from Batman and Robin, he announces this.
A Suicide Squad video game?! Yes, I know I need to be hesitant on this one, considering that it will probably be based on a movie (which may not be too good), but I love me some Suicide Squad, so here’s hoping.
Chew optioned for television-one of my favorite new series (and a lot of others it seems-see my Eisner post) would make a great tv show
Astro City optioned for the Big Screen-I think I could die happy seeing the Confessor storyline filmed correctly
Super shaping up to be a suprisingly awesome sounding film-James Gunn, Nathan Fillion, Rainn Wilson-I’m intrigued
Well, there you go folks, your special edition Ettatorial for the week. We should be back to some semblance of normalcy next week, same time, same channel.
