Over the last few years, all the Wizard news stories have been about who’s leaving, but here’s a story about a new hire for a change. Kevin Kelly, formerly of G4, io9, Cinematical and so on, has joined as managing editor for web endeavors. WIzard is currently published as a computer- and tablet-friendly PDF about once a week.
Bluewater and their comics bios get the most press of any comics, but not many sales that show up on Diamond’s charts. However, all the press has enabled a team-up with Simon and Schuster for Killing GERONIMO: THE HUNT FOR OSAMA BIN LADEN, a comics-styled take on how the Al Qaeda leader was hunted down by US troops.
A previous comics version was published by IDW, CODEWORD GERONIMO.
Bluewater’s version will be written by Jerome Maida and Darren G. Davis with art by James Boulton.
