Hey, what a week, right? I’m kidding, I have no idea, because I’m losing all concept of time.
If you wanna read about some bros being bros and dudes rocking it up, there’s an interview in the Atlantic.
Gina Gagliano is moving on from Random House Graphics, the imprint she founded two years ago. Her current new plans are unknown.
Scott Snyder and Tony S. Daniel’s Nocterra is getting a Netflix series. Are people digging this book? I dunno. Netflix thinks it might work, though.
In other adaptation news, the CLAMP manga xxxHOLIC will be made into a live-action film.
Original Pink Power Ranger Amy Jo Johnson has written a Power Rangers comic with her boyfriend, which BOOM! Studios is apparently interested in. There’s no news on a title or release date just yet.
Marvel, and therefore Disney, continue to shoot themselves in the foot with the embrace of NFTs, determining that short-term profit apparently means more to them than lasting environmental impact. What’s even funnier is that with this latest offering (now all sold out), they’ve somehow convinced people to spend on digital offerings of 20-year-old comics. The exact same comics that are available on Comixology, or on Marvel’s own Unlimited app. These new, number-limited digital editions have different rarities and variant covers, which I cannot stress enough are artificial scarcity and some new jpgs with a bit of a spit polish, respectively. What’s more, the variant covers are not even original pieces of new art—they’re repurposed panel art from inside the comic itself. Come on, folks. You’re embarrassing yourselves at this point.
That’s all I got. Get your booster! Drink your water! Be nice to service workers!
