This week saw digital comic publisher Graphicly announce that they have been acquired by Blurb, a book publisher who will be subsequently folding the comics section of Graphicly. The question, however, is if the move means that the many creators – self-publishers and small-press – who used Graphicly will be paid the money that the […]
I think we can finally throw some dirt on the coffin of the Neil Gaiman – Todd McFarlane lawsuit. The New York Times has announced that Gaiman’s Angela character (created for Spawn with Todd McFarlane, back in 1992), one of the objects of dispute, has moved over to Marvel. Nothing says “the legal battle is over” like […]
Gail Simone isn’t exclusive at DC any more. She’s picked up her first non-DC/Marvel title in a loooooong time in the form of a new Red Sonja series from Dynamite, set to launch in July.

Celebrate and/or worry, as it looks like there is finally some more forward movement on New Line Cinema’s long-awaited adaptation of Brian K Vaughan and Pia Guerra’s Y: The Last Man. Deadline are today reporting that Dan Trachtenberg has been hired as the director for the film.
As expected, following the departure of Vertigo founder Karen Berger, remaining editors Shelly Bond, Will Dennis and Mark Doyle have been promoted, with Bond ascending to Executive Editor.
