ComicMix QuickPicks – January 26, 2009
Here is today’s list of comic-related news items that might not generate a post of their own, but may be of interest…
* Shooting on Spielberg’s Tintin has finally started. Although I have to ask– $100 million budgeted for a motion capture film? Good grief. I would have pegged it at about $80 million.
* Because 6.5 million people haven’t gotten their act together, the Senate OKs 4-month delay to digital TV changeover.
* Cripes, now they’re laying off folks at Publisher’s Weekly, including editor-in-chief Sara Nelson and about 7% of the staff. So far, Calvin Reid and Heidi Macdonald are unaffected directly.
* And finally, Gene Roddenberry and Majel Barrett Roddenbery’s ashes will be shot into space next year, together in infinite eternity… unless they were picked up by V’G’r.
Anything else? Consider this an open thread.
