BOOM! Studios made a sound equal to its name today when it announced it had acquired indie comic book publisher Archaia Entertainment, creating what is according to BOOM!'s press release, the largest library behind Marvel and DC.




It's almost that time again, gang! San Diego Comic-Con is just a few weeks away and July 18, MTV is hitting the floor in full force!

If the acid-bleeding xenomorph and the four-jawed Yautja can set aside their difference, perhaps there's hope for world peace after all.

The Aliens and Predators have been on opposite sides of the battlefield for years and years, slugging it out over countless "Versus" films, games, and comic books of varying degrees of quality. But this past weekend, the pop-culture alien icons cast aside their ancient blood-feud to accomplish a common goal: solving the case of "Who Stabbed the Beer Man?"



It seems like it's been in development forever (at least, its cancelled CG counterpart was), but the live-action adaptation of "G-Force"/"Battle of the Planets" is on the way to Japanese theaters in August--and it's looks pretty good. "Gatchaman" is from longtime TV director Toya Sato, but that doesn't mean he's skimped on the scope and scale of the action, which seems to lift a lot visually from the original animated Tatsunoko anime, complete with explosions and and flying super ninjas taking down costumed terrorists.



Late Wednesday afternoon, it was officially announced that Universal Pictures had optioned IDW's highly-regarded Locke & Key comic for development as a major motion picture.

For those who may just be hearing of the series for the first time, Locke & Key is a property created by New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill and Eisner nominated artist Gabriel Rodriguez.  The comic follows siblings who move to their family's ancestral estate after their father's death, and there they discover magical keys that unlock long-buried secrets and give their users supernatural powers.  The collected editions have made multiple appearances on the New York Times bestseller lists, garnered several nominations (and one win) at the comic industries annual Eisner Awards, and won two British Fantasy Awards for Best Graphic Novel.

Are you a geeky writer who specializes in tech, anime, or on the moment news reporting? Then you could be the next MTV Geek blogger!



The France Inter (via ICv2) reports that Nicolas Winding Refn, in Cannes promoting "Only God Forgives," revealed that he would be adapting the sprawling sci-fi story "The Incal."

If Refn--who's also adapting "Barbarella" while giving Ryan Gosling more things to kill on the screen--is able to get this off the ground, it would bring to life one of the most creatively fertile modern comics collaborations in any language.

When given a highlighted choice in Multiverse, a reader can take the story in a new directionWhen given a highlighted choice in Multiverse, a reader can take the story in a new direction

In an effort to expand upon their success with digital comics, DC Entertainment announced last night its two new reader-driven initiatives at the Time Warner Medialab located in New York City’s Columbus Circle.

The press event was hosted by DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson and Co-Publisher Jim Lee, who announced DC2, which stands for “DC Dynamic Canvas,” and DC2 Multiverse. Described by Lee as the “next evolutionary step” of comics, the initiatives launching this fall are intended to add another layer of interactivity to digital comics by allowing the reader to sets the pace of how content unfolds in front of him or her. Specifically in the case of Multiverse, the reader will also be able to affect story outcomes based on in-story decisions they will make. Read More...
