DC Entertainment’s Constantine, iZombie and The Flash TV Shows All Get Series Pickups

Untitled-2

To paraphrase the immortal Xzibit, "Yo dawg, we heard you like DC Comics, so we put DC Comics in your TV so you can watch comics while you read comics."

Two different networks announced today that they're picking up three different shows based on DC and Vertigo properties: Constantine on NBC, iZombie and The Flash on The CW. With Arrow headed into its third season at The CW and Gotham already in production at Fox, this fall will be filled with hour-long dramas based on DC Comics.  Industry scuttlebutt is that DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is the primary force behind getting these shows this far, making today a pretty good day for the longtime superhero writer.

Seth Rogen Says ‘Incredibly Crazy Ideas’ In Store For ‘Preacher’ TV Series

Preacher Movie

Seth Rogen and co-writer Evan Goldberg's foray into the world of comics adaptations, The Green Hornet, wasn't a box office hit and led to some highly divergent opinions.

Even so, the writing duo is working with Sam Catlin, who wrote a good many episodes of Breaking Bad, on AMC's new Preacher series, and according to Rogen, there's some seriously nutty stuff in store -- ideas that will expand on the comic -- for the show.

Finally, they talk about CMYK #1, and some of the controversy around it.

There Is No One Way to Live Or Die: ‘Daytripper: The Deluxe Edition’ Sketchbook [Exclusive Art]

Untitled-1

Originally serialized in ten issues by Vertigo throughout 2010, Daytripper has since become known as the master work of Brazilian cartoonists and brothers Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon. The gorgeously illustrated Daytripper employs (and in some cases innovates) the special language of comics to ends that are at once uplifting and devastating, creating a truly emotional journey into the soul of a man whose life, loves and home seem as intimate as your own.

Daytripper's original issues won Eisner, Harvey and Eagle Awards, and its paperback collection became a New York Times bestseller. Soon to be available as a hardcover for the first time in the US, Vertigo's Daytripper: The Deluxe Edition recompiles the story in an oversized edition with improved paper stock, a wraparound cover and a behind-the-scenes section containing sketches, layouts and other artwork by Bá and Moon from throughout the Daytripper creative process. Courtesy of Vertigo, ComicsAlliance is pleased to present an advanced look at that very special material in the gallery below.

Jason Aaron And R.M. Guera’s ‘Scalped’ Coming To TV From WGN America

Untitled-1

You may remember WGN America as the national cable channel where you could watch The Bozo Show, find out about Chicago's often-terrible weather, and watch a huge number of Cubs games, but it's soon to become a channel with original, hour-long dramas, just like every other cable channel on TV. Among its upcoming shows is a TV adaptation of Scalped, the hugely acclaimed Vertigo series by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera with covers by Jock that follows FBI agent Dashiell Bad Horse as he goes undercover to bring down a crime ring at the Native American Reservation where he grew up.

Doug Jung, writer of the movie Confidence and quite a few episodes of the undercover-cop series Dark Blue, will write the show's script.

‘The Wolf Among Us’ Episode 3, ‘A Crooked Mile,’ Honors A Different Genre [Review]

The Wolf Among Us A Crooked Mile Review
Telltale Games

The first two episodes of Telltale Games' Fables prequel, The Wolf Among Us, had clearly served as homage to a very particular genre, neon noir. The third episode, "A Crooked Mile," which hit Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC and iOS this week, keeps the neon but seems to drop the noir.

What the developers and writers offer up instead is a bloodier, more aggressive story this time around. It feels pretty strongly like the a hat-tip to the gun-driven revenge and exploitation films of the 1970s, particularly by the end, and it gives the game a sense of welcome unpredictability.

Less than a year into its run at Vertigo, Hollywood is already calling for writer Simon Oliver, artist Robbi Rodriguez and colorist Rico Renzi's tripped-out sci-fi comic FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics.

Deadline reports that Justin Marks, writer of the upcoming live-action Jungle Book movie and of the screenplay for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, is adapting a treatment written by Oliver. David S. Goyer, who has been a driving force behind a good many DC Comics movie properties over the past several years, will produce.

The Expert’s Guide To HBO’s ‘True Detective’ And Weird Comic Book Fiction

HBO True Detective Weird Comic Book Fiction Morrison Moore Guide

True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto has claimed that Alan Moore Moore and Grant Morrison were the first writers to excite him about the possibilities of storytelling.

With everyone looking to solve the many remaining mysteries of True Detective, it’s tempting to ask: are comic books the key? Pizzolatto’s spectacular Moore crib aside, I’d go with with a big no. Ain’t nothing going to settle the debate around Carcosa let alone Marty Hart’s hot dating skills, but comics do represent a largely unexplored and appropriately strange route into the show. So without further ado here’s our by no means exhaustive guide to True Detective and weird comic books.

SPOILER WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for True Detective, Top 10, From Hell and some of The Invisibles.
