Franco goes bad in Spidey 2? - 21/08/2002
James Franco, who played Harry Osborn in this year's hit film Spider-Man, has told SCI FI Wire that he expects his character to become a full-fledged villain in the upcoming sequel.
"All I can say is the first film was pretty loyal to the storyline in the comic book, and I assume that the second will be, and that Harry does take a turn for the dark side..."
Head over to SCI FI Wire for the full-story including Franco's speculations regarding his character's drug-usage during the 60s and 70s.

Anime Parody Excels - 19/08/2002
Anime/Manga journalist Takashi Oshiguchi has taken a light-hearted look at Japanese action TV and anime parodies in his latest column on Animerica.
Here's a typical scene from the tokusatsu (special effects) TV shows that have been around for so long: Shocker, an evil organization with plans to conquer the world, hijacks a school bus full of kindergarteners! Or maybe this one's better: The first step in their evil plans to conquer the world is to rid the world of children's favorite snacks!
With cheezy stories like this being around for over 30 years, its not surprising that comic creators occasionally take the opportunity to make a bit of fun of them. In this article, Oshiguchi pays special attention to Rikudo Koshi's Excel Saga - a parody which focuses on the diabolic efforts of a leader and his female agent to take over a single town. But agent Excel can't even hold down a part-time job much less take over an entire town! It's a great read for all lovers of good anime and humour.

Jamie S. Rich Interviewed On Ninth Art - 15/08/2002
Ninth Art have posted the second-half of their interview with Jamie S. Rich (the current reigning editor-in-chief of Oni Press). Rich talks about why he likes Leandro Fernandez's controversial artwork on Oni's flagship title QUEEN AND COUNTRY, why he wouldn't like to see Oni titles like BLUE MONDAY caught up in the Hollywood movie-machine and his ideas for the company's immediate future.
"I think the Spider-Man film is actually probably going to contribute to [the shakiness of the industry] a lot," says Rich, "and I think it's going to trigger another Hollywood feeding frenzy that is going to be just like previous ones, where lots of people get caught up in this great big machine just to get ground up and dropped behind, so I'm hoping that people will be a little cautious and I'm hoping that as an industry we'll be able to build around what's going on, in an attempt to strengthen the industry and not just get caught up in the bright colours and the quick cash."

Perlman on Hellboy - 13/08/2002
Sci Fi Wire is reporting that Ron Perlman, who will play Hellboy in Revolution Studios' adaption of Mike Mignola's comic, has told fans of the series at San Diego Comic-con International that the demonic hero is probably "the world's biggest underachiever".
"He has this incredible physical presence and ability. He has a huge heart, which can be molded either for the use of good or evil. And he also has this mischievous, devilish kind of circuitry that underlines all of this. Those are always in conflict with one another. The fun is going to be in finding the balance. Everything that he does is epic."
Incarnated on Earth since World War II, Hellboy is a demon and paranormal investigator employed by the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD). With a stone-cast right-hand that is better in a fight that a sledge-hammer, Perlman better be careful who he's really calling a slacker!

JLA: Secret Origins Leads To Liberty and Justice For All - 3/08/2002
The DC Online Newsletter has broken the news that this spring the secret will be out...and we'll owe it all to writer Paul Dini and artist Alex Ross.

Arriving in Novermeber from that best-selling and multiple-award winning creative team is the special 48-page JLA: SECRET ORIGINS one-shot. And, while this book is in the oversized 10" x 13 1/2" format made famous by the four previous Dini/Ross collaborations (SUPERMAN: PEACE ON EARTH, BATMAN: WAR ON CRIME, SHAZAM!: POWER OF HOPE and WONDER WOMAN: SPIRIT OF TRUTH), JLA: SECRET ORIGINS is not a continuation of that series of stories.

Shonen Jump Comes To Viz - 30/07/2002
Viz Communications has announced that the hugely popular manga magazine Shonen Jump will be launched to audiences in November, 2002. The magazine, known as the birthplace of the greatest Japanese artists and stories, sells over three million copies every week, to ages ranging from junior high students to adults--in a country with half the population of the U.S.

Each issue of Shonen Jump will be 256 or more pages and will feature the most popular comics from the original Japanese edition. As an added bonus the comics in Shonen Jump will be printed in the right-to-left Japanese-reading format to preserve the original artwork--but with English sound effects to make them as easy to read in Australia as they were in Japan.
