    CHRONICLE’s Josh Trank in Talks to Direct SPIDER-MAN Spin-Off, VENOM

    Interesting. His name came up in FF relaunch chatter, but that seems to be done. Might be better for him to take on a smaller character. And, if you haven't seen it...Chronical was VERY good. Got away a bit at the end because Trank lost the focus in an EPIC ending, but overall it was a very good superhero flick.

    David Mazzucchelli Hopes People Don’t Buy Batman Year One | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    DC just sent me this book last week, and I really hope people don’t buy it. I didn’t even know they were making it, and I don’t understand why they thought it was necessary — several years ago, DC asked me if I’d help put together a deluxe edition ofBatman: Year One, and Dale Crain and I worked for months to try to make a definitive version. Now whoever’s in charge has thrown all that work in the garbage. First, they redesigned the cover, and recolored my artwork — probably to look more like their little DVD that came out last year; second, they printed the book on shiny paper, which was never a part of the original design, all the way back to the first hardcover in 1988; third — and worst — they printed the color from corrupted, out-of-focus digital files, completely obscuring all of Richmond’s hand-painted work. Anybody who’s already paid for this should send it back to DC and demand a refund.
    C'mon, DC... you need to be better than this.

    Chronicle 2 Is Coming | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    I was surprised how little advanced excitement and anticipation there was in the geekosphere for Chronicle. Here was that thing so many nerds say they want: an original story, well told, with character and surprises, and a tone that deserved to be taken seriously. Had it been brand-named, I think people would have lost their minds for it.

    But it wasn’t. And I guess people are shallow. Whenever I saw somebody namecheck Akira in describing Chronicle, and it happened a lot, I remembered how much fuss was being made over a going-nowhere American do-over of that story while this film was being relatively neglected. All because of the name on the front page. Just a name.

    That’s why the studios keep making condescending, substandard tentpole pap. All they need is a name to sell tickets – and toss in a few more famous names on the cast and crew credits to really get things cooking. But don’t you want to be treated like grown ups? Honestly, it looks like the majority of traffic to online film blogs is made up not of film lovers, but franchise fans, people less interested in whether or not a film is going to be any good than whether or not it has the same name as something else.

    How boring.

    But Chronicle is out there now, and these blinkered folk can stumble on it by mistake while trolling from brand name to brand name. And when they do, I think they’ll “be surprised” by how much they like it.

    So by the time Chronicle 2 comes along, there’s probably going to be something like a waiting audience.

    At the moment, the studios seem to be courting director Josh Trank for their pre-set comic book adaptations, from The Fantastic Four to Venom and it’s not entirely clear if he’d come back to make another Chronicle movie, despite it being built on his own original idea. I expect he will at least have first refusal.

    Though while we’re waiting to see if that will happen, the first film’s screenwriter, Max Landis, has started work on a script for the second. Deadline note that Landis has other projects in the pipeline, having recently sold Amnesty, a pitch with Ron Howard attached to direct, and that Disney have an original “adventure story” of his on their slate. Keeping busy.

    The first Chronicle ends quite nicely, and there aren’t really any loose threads outside of the kind of things that simply don’t need an explanation. Still, there are more stories to be told in the same world, and all Landis will have to do is find one.

    Review: The Boys #64 - Comic Book Resources

    I don't know what happened. I remember hearing that there were 2 years left in this title. Now...7 issues left. Simply an amazing book filled with great characters. Rarely does a comic book author hit a home run that not only changes the game, but is remembered forever. Moore did it with Watchmen and Swamp Thing and now Ennis has followed with this and Preacher...yes Adgy I recognize all of his other work, including Hitman(which I love) and Punisher(meh)...but these 2 titles will forever be properties that someone wants to make a movie out of...just to spin wheels. They are just too unwieldy...too perfect, to be pared down. I could go into spoilers, but please...if you are a comic fan, get the first few tpbs. Immerse yerself. And don't be surprised when you get SWEPT up.

    From CBR's review of #63

    The Boys” is a book scary in its ability to amaze you on such varied levels. The violence is school yard fun while the conniving and plotting behind it all are extremely adult. The gags can be juvenile while the emotional character arcs tend to be more mature and heartbreaking. It seems that the more serious matters get in this book, the better the stories become. Right here, as we face down the end of it all, things are deadly serious and that bodes well for the content and quality to come in the coming months. Everything “The Boys” does well is showcased right here in one issue.

    Amy Reeder Is Batwoman No More | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Amy Reeder was meant to be rotating art on Batwoman with co-writer JH Williams III. She was meant to be drawing the second arc, issues 6 to 11, before JH Williams III would take over for a few issues, and then back to Amy again.

    Now it seems that Amy Reeder’s second arc has been cut short. In an article on the DC Source which doesn’t mention Amy once, we learn that Trevor McCarthy will now be drawing issus 9, 10 and 11.

    Amy posted today on Facebook, “I know, I know. You found out about it pretty much as soon as it went final, too. It’s definitely regrettable…some real creative differences were going on, to the point that it became untenable.”
    Awww, weak.

    Preacher and The Boys are certainly more Epic in their scope than anything else Ennis has written for sure.

    Going to be a sad day when the last issue comes out. :(

    Oh no! :(

    I loved Moebius work. One of my schools had a print of one of his works in the student union which always brought me comfort when I used to go study there.
