Peter Bagge's Apocalypse Nerd may become a live-action film, with a little financial backing. Also, a group of Disney artists are publishing a book of their personal artwork and a crew of Canadian comics creators are collecting superheroes who wear their maple leaves proudly.
This week's comic haul is a grab bag of weirdness. We have a spaceships-and-girl-groups book from two of indie comics' titans, the return of Canada's premier superheroes, and a veritable smorgasbord of graphic novels.
Just in time for 4/20, Ziggy Marley's THC-themed superhero drops by comic stores to trick crooks into thinking they're dying (so they'll call 911 on themselves). Plus, new Peter Bagge and a metric bongload of new graphic novels!
This October, Marvel will debut DeadpoolMAX, an R-rated take on the Merc with a Mouth from the creative team of writer David Lapham (Young Liars, Crossed: Family Values) and illustrator Kyle Baker (Plastic Man).
Peter Bagge, the creator of seminal 90s satire comic Hate, may see his Dark Horse Comics miniseries Apocalypse Nerd go to the BBC. The story follows two friends who go camping one weekend and return to Armageddon. Here's the trailer.
