How did Image's first solo convention go? And what's the publisher got in store for the next year? How does a new series from Grant Morrison strike you?

The publisher teased a new series from Morrison exuberantly titled Happy!, featuring art by The Boys Darick Robertson. No details or even genre are available, but this would be Morrison's first creator-owned project since Joe the Barbarian at Vertigo, if I recall correctly. The series got its first official image with the promo at the top of this article. I'm guessing it has something to do with hyperdimensional birds. [iFanboy]

Daniel Corey's comic joins Superman, Spider-Man, and Annie in the list of comics getting the musical theater adaptation with a hard rock score from composer Raymond Schnurr. At this weekend's Image Comics Expo, the publisher announced that the series' first arc, "The Dark Chamber," written by Corey and illustrated by Anthony Diecidue, would be getting the stage musical treatment courtesy of Corey and composer Raymond Schnurr. The duo are teaming up to write the lyrics based on the plot, with Schnurr, of course, putting together the music for what they promise will be "a gritty and dark piece." Read More...

The long-promoted DC Nation hour of animated and live-action programming from Cartoon Network is on its way in a couple of weeks—Saturday, March 3rd, to be exact. Does "Saturday morning cartoons" still mean the same thing if they're on a network mostly dedicated to cartoons? My hangups with semantics aside, the hour-long block will be making its debut in a couple of weeks along with premieres of both Green Lantern: The Animated Series and the new season of Young Justice.

Warmachine fans, prepare to go big or go home. The biggest news out of Privateer Press lately has been the announcement of Warmachine: Colossals, the next planned expansion book and set of miniatures. As the name suggests, this range of minis will focus on super-heavy warjacks with nearly twice the height of today's tallest models, all mounted on large 120mm bases.

German Settlers of Catan publisher Kosmos has announced they will be releasing a Star Trek-licensed version of the popular game in March, retailing for €37. The game's entry appeared on BoardGameGeek.com this morning, breaking the news of its existence. From the official description:

Star Trek Catan takes two well-known media properties and merges them into, well, into something that is 95% The Settlers of Catan glossed with Trek tropes and spiced with new special powers related to Trek personalities.

In Star Trek Catan, players start the game with two small space stations at the intersection of three planets, with each planet supplying resources based on the result of a dice roll. Players collect and trade these resources – Dilithium, Tritanium, food, oxygen and water – in order to build spaceships that connect regions in the galaxy, establish small and large space stations at new intersection points in order to increase resource acquisition, and acquire development cards that provide victory points (VPs) or special abilities.

In the slow advancement of a plot to make me read more comic books, Atomic Robo will soon enter the world of tabletop roleplaying. Evil Hat Productions will do the honors, using the popular Fate system as a base for the game. Atomic Robo will be in good company, though, as Fate has already spawned such popular titles as Spirit of the Century and the Dresden Files RPG.

At the helm, Evil Hat will be placing Atomic Robo Brian Clevinger himself alongside Fate system veteran Mike Olson. As it turns out, Clevinger and artist Scott Wegener are huge RPG enthusiasts, particularly of Evil Hat's Spirit of the Century. This made for a natural fit between the two parties, who have decided to go public with this announcement immediately upon striking an agreement. Development on the Atomic Robo RPG will begin next month, but according to Evil Hat head Fred Hicks, it is still up in the air whether the game will see a late 2012 or early 2013 release.

Atomic Robo will join several other comic book properties that the hobby gaming industry has recently licensed, such as Lock and Key, Mouse Guard, and The Walking Dead, not to mention a major new Marvel Comics RPG that is on the way.

Needless to say, the game will be in some good company, and I for one look forward to giving it a try. In the official press release, Fred Hicks described Atomic Robo's themes as "action-science, robots, angry talking dinosaurs, high weirdness, and more." I'm sold. Now it's time to go order some trades.

Unfortunately, Timmy didn't put the spyglass down in time to realize Mr. Squawkers was armed

I'm only a few words into this announcement and I've already thrown Candyland under the bus, but it's hard not to. If you look at games as either a test of skill or a series of interesting decision, most titles on toy store shelves fail to meet either of those criteria. Mayfair Games is aiming to change that with Catan: Junior. Inspired by the mega-hit board game The Settlers of Catan, Catan: Junior will be released this April as part of Mayfair's new Fun Fair line of children's games.

Sure, there was 2003's The Kids of Catan, but since that game wasn't particularly very good, we'll just forget about it. What game? I'm not sure what you're talking about. In any case, Catan: Junior actually looks quite good, and should be a perfect introduction to Euro-style board games. Before you know it, your kids will be pushing around wooden cubes with the best of them.
