And here's a Hollywood Reporter bit on this featuring an interview with JMS: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hea...7-books-286302Each week, a new issue will be released, and will feature a two-page back-up story called CURSE OF THE CRIMSON CORSAIR, written by original series editor Len Wein and with art by original series colorist John Higgins.
And before anyone freaks the fuck out, be honest with yourselves: You would give your left nut or ovary to be a part of these projects as writers or artists.
Love comics? Love humor? Love hot redheads (of both sexes?)
I'm more interested in Grant Morrison's Anti-Watchmen idea with the Charlton heroes.
I so didn't want to buy this, but then I saw the talent involved and it could be good.
That's some serious talent on those books.
If you told me Adam Hughes would be drawing interiors again, I'd have never guessed "the book with the naked blue dude."
As creatively bankrupt as the movie is, wow those are some stellar creative teams. I'll at least be checking out Silk Spectre and Comedian.
