ComicMix Quick Picks for September 26, 2009
Freshly picked from only the finest and most pedigreed blog bushes, here’s the stuff we didn’t get to yesterday:
- Entertainment Tonight visited the set of Iron Man 2, and has video.
- The Chicago Tribune’s pop culture blog, of all places, has a fun round-up of what Battlestar Galactica actors are up to these days. Highlight: Mark Sheppard (Romo Lampkin), by law, must appear in every scripted series shot in North America.
You no doubt enjoyed him in “Burn Notice,” “Leverage,” “Dollhouse” and
“Warehouse 13” (and those are just a few of his recent credits). Look
for him next in the series premiere of USA’s “White Collar” (Oct. 23).
- A quick update on the status of the Orphan Works bill. For those not familiar, the update itself has a good quick summary. It starts like this: In 2004, Google announced its intent to digitize all of the world’s 80-100 million books – and to make most of them commercially available as orphaned works. The plan has been controversial since its inception.
- TokyoPop has released their winter publishing schedule. February will see a slew of new releases, which is a good sign for the industry, right?
- There’s not much else to report because everyone is at Small Press Expo 2009 or New York Anime Festival this weekend. Expect fuller writeups from us on these later.
What’d we miss? Consider this an open thread.
