Excellent news for fans of very good things: The Lumberjanes movie is going forward, with Emily Carmichael tapped to direct the film at Fox.
This news is as entirely unexpected as it is great: Boom! Studios has announced that its wildly successful teen comic series Lumberjanes is going to crossover with DC Comics’ very own Gotham Academy, creating what might just be the hippest teen mystery team-up in comic book history.
After missing out on a nomination last year for the first time since 2003, DC Comics has two series up for the GLAAD Media Awards. The excellent Midnighter and Harley Quinn join Lumberjanes, Angela: Queen of Hel, and The Wicked + The Divine in the Outsanding Comic Books category for their portrayal of LGBT characters.
There have been an awful lot of Adventure Time tie-in comics... but this one is different. Boom! Studios is releasing a comic-book miniseries about the Ice King, aka Simon Petrikov, whose magical crown drove him insane.
The other day, comic-book fans got an amazing piece of news: the beloved Y the Last Man is not going to be shoehorned into movie form, but will get to live and breathe as a TV show. Even though comics rule movies these days, some of them are just too big for a two-hour package.
Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Noelle Stevenson, and Brooke Allen’s Lumberjanes was one of our favourite comics of 2014 — and now, it might end up becoming one of our favourite films too. Fox is planning to turn the comic into a movie, and it’s bagged The Munchkin’s Will Widger to write the script.
Noelle Stevenson's Nimona is one of our favorite webcomics, a hilarious tale of a not-so-evil supervillain and his pushy, shapeshifting sidekick. Now Stevenson is headed into Buffy territory with a new print comic about girls at scout camp who fight monsters.
