New Alan Moore zine, free Charles Vess, submit to Viz, and Gravel to film: ComicMix Quick Picks for 10/9/09
All the quick news while shooting at the moon and waiting for stories from Baltimore Comic-Con to come in…
- Alan Moore is launching Dodgem Logic, “the 21st century’s first underground magazine
from his home town of Northampton, a community that is right at the
geographical, political and economic heart of the country; one which
has half its high street boarded up and is at present dying on its
arse, just like everywhere else.” Josie Long, Graham Linehan, Kev O’Neill, Melinda Gebbie, Steve Aylett, Leah Moore and John Reppion will be contributing. (Hat tip: Cory Doctorow.)
- Dark Horse Comics just announced that, in honor of their imminent publication of Drawing Down the Moon: The Art of Charles Vess
in December, they are offering the entire book online for free viewing for an indefinite time. All two hundred-plus pages of Drawing Down the Moon can be found on the Dark Horse website.
- VIZ Media is now accepting submissions and pitches for original comics. Interesting. I think this is a change in policy and direction.
- I almost don’t believe this story from Superhero Hype and Variety about Legendary Pictures picking up the film rights to the Warren Ellis series Gravel, just because I would automatically assume Bleeding Cool would have that story first. Tsk, tsk… Rich is slowing down. (Warren: we have just the guy for the role for you. Honest.)
- And in case you didn’t hear, Archie’s an imaginary bigamist.
