Weekend Comic Chat - Post San Diego Comic-Con News and Such!
This year's San Diego Comic-Con was a week ago and amongst all the reports of new comics to come from Marvel and DC and of course tons of movie and television news, I caught a glimpse of this image and was thrilled to read that Alan Moore's next installment of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century will indeed see comic shop racks early next year! Top Shelf Productions backed it up with a slide of the art of this page.
It's not a lot to go on so far with just this one page, but I'm excited nonetheless! I'm thrilled just to check a glimpse of new material featuring the League. If you want to read more about this next installment, check out the Top Shelf Productions listing.
I think the other announcement I am most pleased with was word of a Rocketeer Anthology series that will see today's biggest talents giving us their take on Dave Stevens' classic character in all new original stories. According to IDW editor Scott Dunbier, those big talents "will include Mike Allred, Kurt Busiek, John Cassaday, Darwyn Cooke, Michael Golden, Gene Ha, Michael Kaluta, Garry Leach, Bruce Timm, Bill Willingham, and more. Mike Allred is writing and drawing his, Kurt Busiek is writing a story for Michael Kaluta, John Cassaday and Darwyn Cooke are both writing and drawing their stories," Dunbier said. "There will be some pin-ups by Geoff Darrow, Art Adams, Jeff Campbell, Mike Mignola, a bunch of different guys."
