ComicMix Quick Picks – September 23, 2009
Presented for your approval are these, the stories we didn’t get to yesterday.
- This year’s Animation Supercon in Miami has announced it will host reunions of the voice cast for two of our favorite shows: Futurama and Pinky and the Brain.
- In today’s inevitable Archie Comics news, Dark Horse has announced it will be publishing archive edition hardcovers of every appearance of the Eternal Teenager in chronological order, starting with 1941’s Pep Comics #22, his first appearance.
- We got confirmation that Jack Kirby’s heirs are also looking for a piece of the Spider-Man pie in their recent lawsuit against Marvel, despite the strong possibility that the King’s involvement in Ol’ Webhead’s creation was tangential at best.
- An interview with Lauren Shuler Donner, producer of the X-Men movies, revealed that a) X-Men First Class will NOT be filming soon, as rumored, and b) she’s cooking up several other movies starring Marvel’s band of Merry Mutants, including X4 and a New Mutants adaptation, among others. This doesn’t mean they’ll all get made, obviously, but it’s nice to know that they’re working on it.
- And sadly, legendary illustrator Bernie Fuchs, known for his nontraditional and inventive compositions and striking color palette, passed away last week.
What else did we miss? Consider this an open thread.
