    New Vertigo Sci-Fi Series From Scott Snyder And Sean Murphy – And American Vampire: London | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Scott Snyder revealed that he is writing a new sci fi mini series for DC/Vertigo for Joe The Barbarian artist Sean Murphy planned for publication in early 2013.
    Oh HELLS yeah!

    Regarding his DC Universe books, he mentions that Dick and Bruce Wayne will have a major falling out in Batman next year, which may set the tone for the rest of the Batbooks. And that Swamp Thing and Animal Man will get their first proper crossover early next year.

    He also confesses that he and Greg Capullo had a few problems getting on as a creative team on Batman…

    Merry CROSSEDmas: Garth Ennis Talks Crossed | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    It’s not so much particular elements as a certain level of talent. William Christensen and I agreed from the start that CROSSED wouldn’t be farmed out to just anyone; the stories had to come up to a set standard or there was no point in continuing the book. That’s why you see guys like Jamie, David, and Si working on it, as well as couple of others coming up that we’ve been talking about. We’re going to carry on being pretty picky.

    I should say that I’m determined not to censor writers in terms of content; all I ask is that CROSSED remain CROSSED. Which is to say the stories have to be about survival, about running and hiding, escaping death by the skin of one’s teeth, only fighting when necessary – and then like a cornered rat. And CROSSED has to be about hanging onto one’s humanity, too, even in the face of unimaginable horror.

    If it ever becomes about miracle cures and acid-proof battle suits and “the fightback”, we may as well give up. That’ll be when the plug gets pulled.

    Not so much a relaunch, as a... I dunno what you'd call it, but they have a bunch of big new titles all starting at around the same time. So, it's more like a big push to get people interested in Vertigo again.

    And on the subject of Vertigo, Azzarello and Risso's Spaceman mini-series going on right now is pretty damn good.

    Real-Life Weirdness: Marvel Lawyers Insist Mutants Aren’t Human | /Film

    This is a strange one. While fictional characters in the Marvel Universe — the heroes at least — typically argue a position that says mutants and humans are not really different, and should be afforded the same rights, in the real world the company’s position is somewhat contrary.

    In the non-fictional world, our world, Marvel is taking the position that mutants are not humans at all. But this isn’t an ideological or a moral stance. Instead, it is a financial one. Toys manufactured in other countries and imported into the US are subject to taxes, but those taxes are lower if the toys represent non-human characters. That has led to Marvel lawyers arguing that an action figure representing, say, Wolverine, is actually “representing animals or other non-human creatures (for example, robots and monsters).” This argument leads to a good conversation on the questions of humanity and acceptance that have long been part of the X-Men storyline.

    The great Radiolab podcast has a show that begins with two international trade lawyers who noticed an interesting distinction in taxation for categories of products being imported into the US. ‘Dolls,’ which are toys that represent humans, are taxed at 12%. ‘Toys,’ meanwhile, are, well, toys, but ones that don’t represent humans. Those are taxed at 6.8%. You can probably see where this is headed.

    These two trade lawyers, as it turns out, had a big client when they noticed these tax rates: Marvel. So the pair went to customs and argued that Marvel’s licensed products are toys, not dolls. To do that, they argued that the figures do not represent human beings.
    If your child is on their way to becoming a lawyer, drown them. Do the planet a favor.

    New THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Toys Reveal Spoilers and Another Look at The Lizard

    I'm sorry, but why is it that a guy who is turning into a lizard has to have a human face? What??? No confidence in your viewers to have sympathy for a character unless you give him human features? Or you just don't trust in your director to coax a strong performance out of a guy who I know can act around makeup. Another of my beloved childhood memories trashed. It's the Lizard...why? Why did you have to use this character? I expect a resounding thud from this movie...yay another origin flick. How special.
