They made a Scott Pilgrim videogame, so maybe a Prison Pit one’s not out of the question: Fantagraphics’ Flog blog shares a link to a piece of fan art presenting the 8-bit videogame opening screen to a videogame that doesn’t exist…but should.
I don’t know how to pronounce it, but I like it: Down The Tubes has details on a new edition of work featuring Sláine, Pat Mills and Simon Bisley’s Celtic Conan-type, coming to the U.S. Also on Down The Tubes, there are some details about a biography of a Terry Nation, a screenwriter for the old Dr. Who series, entitled The Man Who Invented Daleks. I barely even know what a Dalek is—Dr. Who is one of several large blind-spots in my nerd-culture knowledge—but that looks like a pretty neat book.
Personally, I would have picked a series with far fewer issues: At Chasing Amazing, Mark Ginocchio chronicles his quest to collect every single issue of Amazing Spider-Man.
Wonder Woman’s costumes on real women: As Jill already mentioned, NBC has apparently passed on the much-discussed Wonder Woman series. I’m kind of disappointed; whether it would have been great, awful or somewhere in between, I was at least very curious about it, and I can’t imagine it being any worse than all those other terrible live-action TV superhero shows of the last few years. Anyway, Noah Berlatsky has an interesting piece over at Comixology regarding Wonder Woman’s costuming, and how what works fine for a drawing doesn’t always work well for a real woman. The TV Wondy was the launching point of the article, but H.G. Peter’s original costume design and art is the focus.
And finally, speaking of comics and television…: The LA Times asks, “Will comic book hero Stan Lee turn into a zombie for ‘Walking Dead’?” and The Courier and Mail is among the venues reporting that Dynamite, Kevin Smith and Jonathan Lau are making a Bionic Man comic book (as you no doubt already saw on the main site).
