SLG announces new series, Outlook: Grim - 7/02/2003
Ghosts and goblins and beasties, oh my! Uninvited guests are bad enough. When they turn out to be demons and ghouls from unknown dimensions, they’re real trouble. This is the predicament Wren, the sassy and fearless heroine of SLG Publishing’s new quarterly series, Outlook: Grim by new talent Black Olive, finds herself in as she must face off against supernatural forces that she accidentally invited into her home. The ghoulies definitely have wicked intentions, but they completely lack social graces, and Wren is more annoyed than terrified. Will she rid her house of these uncouth invaders? Or will she spend the rest of her life with ghosts rummaging through her unmentionables and beasties taking a soak her bathtub?

Issue one of Outlook: Grim, the debut comic book series from writer/artist Black Olive, will be published in May 2003. A fresh look at silly spookiness, Outlook: Grim is a series that Editor-in-Chief Jennifer de Guzman Belew feels will appeal to readers of SLG Publishing comic books like GloomCookie and Little Scrowlie, as well as attract new readers.

Dotcomic DOOM - 6/02/2003
Three words ... it only takes three words to send chills through the hearts of the Fantastic Four and send a buzz through comics' fandom ... Those three words are "DOCTOR DOOM's BACK!"

Anticipation is high over "UNTHINKABLE", the upcoming FANTASTIC FOUR story arc that begins in March's FANTASTIC FOUR #67, concludes in July's extra-sized FANTASTIC FOUR #71 (the 500th issue of series), and promises to leave Reed Richards a changed man, and DOOM - the FF's greatest adversary - completely redefined for the 21st century!

"To my surprise, the buzz and anticipation around 'Unthinkable' has been stronger than we'd ever imagined it would be - and that's great, because I guarantee you that I carry that energy and excitement into the finished scripts," says series writer Mark Waid. "Expectations are high, but we're committed to delivering a landmark FF story - and the whole creative team is pulling out all the stops to make it unforgettable."

Readers and retailers can preview that storyline right now at Marvel.com with a special 10-page dotComic preview of the FF #67, available right now at http://dotcomics.marvel.com/lib/launchissue.php?issue=150&wsid=

Allred and Bon make gum with Oni! - 31/01/2003
Oni Press is pleased to announce the April release of the last in its trio of one-shots focusing on characters from Mike Allred’s THE ATOMICS. Written by Allred and drawn by J. Bone, the full-color MR. GUM comic focuses on the super team’s stretchy hero with the silly smile and killer wit. As with the previous one-shots, MR. GUM will feature a cover collaboration by Allred and the guest artist, and the book’s coloring will be provided by the Allred family.

“There was no other artist to draw Mr. Gum,” Allred said. “If you figured Chynna Clugston-Major was a natural choice for IT GIRL and Lawrence Marvit for SPACEMAN, then you’ll really be shocked by what a perfect fit Bone was for Mr. Gum. The man is a cartooning dynamo! I wish he could draw everything!” (Read More)

Clowes & Zwigoff go back to the movies - 20/01/2003
Fantagraphics are pleased to be able to report that United Artists has signed a first-look deal with GHOST WORLD production company Mr. Mudd for future films the company develops, and the first flick on the slate will reunite EIGHTBALL creator DANIEL CLOWES and GHOST WORLD director TERRY ZWIGOFF.

Ghost World producer and actor JOHN MALKOVICH will star in ART SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL, inspired by the acclaimed Clowes short story from Eightball #7. United Artists will release the film domestically, with Miramax Films co-financing the picture and handling foreign distribution. The black comedy takes a satirical look at the modern art world with the story of a young man who goes to art school with the intention of becoming the Greatest Artist in the World.

Contrary to some inexplicable Hollywood reports, the protagonist is not a cop and Drew Barrymore is not attached to the film. Clowes is currently polishing the screenplay and with any luck, the movie will begin filming in 2003.

Oni Press' GEISHA returns complete - 18/01/2003
Andi Watson and Oni Press teamed up for the first time in 1998 for the original GEISHA miniseries—the story of Jomi, an android in a futuristic world. The trade paperback that followed garnered an Eisner nomination for Best Graphic Novel – Reprint. Over time, as Andi’s audience grew with BREAKFAST AFTER NOON and DUMPED, the GEISHA collection went out of print and disappeared from stores. At long last, Oni and Andi Watson are returning the book to the market. Combined now with the stand-alone GEISHA ONE-SHOT, this newly expanded book, THE COMPLETE GEISHA, will hit the shelves in May, 2003.

“Both Andi Watson and Oni Press have really taken off since we first collaborated,” said publisher Joe Nozemack, “but even if our working relationship was in its infancy, the quality of the work was not. GEISHA is still one of the jewel’s in Andi Watson’s creative crown. GEISHA is a tightly plotted story with a wonderfully constructed theme, subtle in its execution while still delivering big action.” (Read More)
