    Stephen Amell Lands Lead in The CW’s ARROW



    As far as that tweet Adgy, first off, it's good to see that bitterness is hereditary, but mostly can't they realize that the comic BUSINESS is a BUSINESS, and in order to survive sometimes creativity has to be sacrificed to save an industry that has serious issues maintaining relevance. While I could do without these, I understand A)DC has very few opportunities like this to get a large bump in the market share and B)Moore's daughter fails to express that maybe, just maybe, the ****ton of cash/exposure DC garners from this will allow them to fund some more risky books and encourage growth. DC has always been second to Marvel because they have not sacrificed a desire to provide creative content to simply overexposing and/or killing characters, changing costumes, having 'events' purely in the interest of the bottom line.

    I don't know Kindt, but if he's already been working with Lemire a lot, I will give him a shot. And I think Milligan will be great for Stormwatch. I had dropped that book, but now I think I might want to go back to it...

    I don't disagree at all, and I think Darwyn Cooke made a great point when he was talking about "should no one have ever written another Swamp Thing after Len Wein?" Also, I know she's probably trying to establish herself as much as possible, but Leah Moore has probably gained plenty from just being the daughter of Alan Moore, so...

    I DO wish there was more attention/focus on original works, but like I said earlier, we all know those don't sell very well.

    Ooooh, people. I just saw CHRONICLE. Holy ****.
    CHRONICLE is The Ramones to the big studio, "Led Zeppelin-circa PRESENCE" bloat.
    CHRONICLE is a great-1st-act, better-2nd-act, awesome-3rd-act flick -- w/ a sinister use of "Ziggy Stardust." You'll see.

    EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: Brian Wood's "The Massive" - Comic Book Resources

    Dark Horse has provided CBR with an exclusive preview of Brian Wood's "The Massive," which debuts in today's "Dark Horse Presents" #8, takes place in the midst of a unique environmental collapse.

    "The Massive" is one of several story ideas I came up with that I refer to as 'post-crash,'" Wood told CBR News in 2011. "In each case, that means something a little different -- an economic crash, and environmental crash, a breakdown of society, a man-made disaster of some kind. Basically, a disaster story that starts after the disaster has already come and gone. That probably sounds a lot like 'post-apocalyptic,' but in no way am I writing this as genre. But yeah, in the case of 'The Massive,' this is an environmental collapse, a rather unique one, and the story starts in the aftermath."
    Brian Wood can be a damn good writer when he wants to be (DMZ, Northlanders), but it's too bad Dark Horse Presents is $8.

    Bendis is Back on the Murder Beat with "Powers" - Comic Book Resources

    While Bendis is working on new "Powers" comics, work continues on the "Powers" television pilot. "The good news was that the pilot was put together. I've seen it and it's not embarrassing on any level. It's very interesting, dense, and complicated like every FX show is. We were tested and the things that you need to continue forward we tested very well with. People liked our lead Jason Patric and the idea of the show. They said they would watch the show. So all of these things did very well," Bendis said. "If those things didn't do well we would have been dead. There were a couple areas that we needed to clarify for a mass audience, but they were very easy fixes. We also came up with an idea for an opening that we liked better than what we had.


    The goal is to produce "Powers" at a monthly clip once again

    "So here's the thing, FX is different from other networks. Other networks make a bunch of pilots and watch them once. They then test them and decide whether they want to put them on the air or not. If FX greenlights a pilot they're 80 percent sure that they're putting the show on the air. They reshoot pilots before they abandon them. From what I understand the 'Sons of Anarchy' pilot that aired was almost completely reshot from the original. It was done by our director," Bendis continued. "So they look at it as a first draft of a five-year investment in a series, which I think makes their shows better. I think that's why their success rate is so high. If a series doesn't connect with an audience it isn't from a lack of quality.

    "So that's where we are now. The important stuff worked. There are rewrites happening as we speak and I talk with the other producers all the time. Just last night me and Chic Eglee, our show runner, had a wonderful conversation about 'Powers' involving things we can do right now and in the future. Also I have to say our network president [John Landgraf] is very intelligent and very invested. He's spending a lot of time with us," Bendis said. "I've been told by almost everybody working on this pilot that we're being very spoiled. The president of FX will call us to talk about 'Powers' in a philosophical manner and it's such a wonderful conversation. Everyone says to me, 'That's not how it is. And I go, 'I know. I've been around.'"
    And that's why Fx is simply better than everyone else.
