Marvel’s RUNAWAYS headed to the big screen!

from Aint It Cool News:

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I’m a big Marvel fan, but I only really looked into Bryan K. Vaughan’s RUNAWAYS series during the Civil War crossovers. I’m not a big fan of the super stylized cartoony art (something that almost got me to stop reading Amazing Spider-Man a year or so back), so I didn’t stick with it. I am a big fan of Vaughan’s Y: THE LAST MAN books, so I’m sure if I buckled down and started from issue one I’d get into it, but I have yet to do that.It’s about the super powered teenage children of super villains who run away from home and band together as a group of goodies.

Marvel has announced that they’re going forward with RUNAWAYS, putting it on the slate with flicks like CAPTAIN AMERICA, IRON MAN 2 and ANT MAN to hit sometime between now and 2011. Thoughts?

Daily Comics News.

Two columns are up about the high price of comics. Tom Spurgeon at The Comics Reporter fires the first shot.  Greg Burgas at Comics Should Be Good lays down some cover fire.  Excellent points made by both men, but I wonder if we can’t take it a bit farther.  What if Marvel, DC, all of the companies really, took a page from Shonen Jump.  Publish a massive tome of comics every month in black and white on cheap paper.  Even $10 a month for this would be more than a deal compared to the current price of $3 each.  Then, add colors and good paper for the inevitable graphic novel collections.

Supermax script:

We got an email pointing out Latino Review’s spoiler filled coverage which outlines the entire story and talks turkey about characters, including The Icicle, The Floronic Man, Count Vertigo, Pied Piper, Blockbuster, Merlyn and even some big names like Joker, Riddler and Lex Luthor.

Batman: Gotham After Midnight #1 has an excellent preview over at Newsarama.

Also at Newsarama, a look at Young Avengers Presents: Hawkeye, The Last Defenders, The Man with No Name, and a preview of the Mortal Kombat vs DC universe game.

Comic Reviews: Captain Britain and the MI-13 #1

This has the potential to be a great comic.  Already we have Captain Britain trying to be the symbol of all that is good in his country.  Trying to be an example the way that Steve Rogers was.  How has Captain America become a stronger character in death than he was in life?  Black Knight, in an effort to overcome the curse of the Ebony Blade decides to now play the flippant character.  Like a British Spider-Man, or like a writer’s attempt to make him a more interesting character (including tongue in cheek remark that nearly breaks the forth wall).  Winks and nods to other British heroes, Skrulls with the powers of a myriad of Marvel heroes (has any Skrull portrayed a villain yet?).  Skrull John Lennon!  It is a fast paced set up issue for the series, but a fantastic one.  The characters are on the board and already neck deep in action.  Fantastic first issue.
