‘Jem And The Holograms’ Creator Christy Marx Shut Out Of Live Action Movie

Actual photo of the set of Jem's movie

When the news broke about the announcement of a Jem and the Holograms movie, ComicsAlliance promised to stay on top of the story, and today, just in case the very idea of a Hollywood adaptation of Jem having its roles crowdsourced via Tumblr wasn't weird enough, we have now reached the second wrinkle of the story: Christy Marx, the original creator of Jem and the Holograms, won't be involved in the movie.

In a statement on her Facebook page that followed the announcement of Jon M. Chu's upcoming film, Marx revealed that she was informed of the movie a few days before the announcement and spoke to Chu about it, but that "no one in the entertainment arm of Hasbro wanted to talk to me, have me write for it, or at the very least consult on it."

Can Appropriate Artist Credit Co-exist With Tumblr And Buzzfeed?

Rachel Dukes Cats for constant companionship comic
Rachel Dukes

Last week, cartoonist Rachel Dukes posted some eye-opening statistics to her Tumblr about a comic she made about what life as a cat owner is like. She originally published the comic with a copyright notice and a URL to her website. That version of the comic has been seen about 81,600 times.

Another version, from which someone removed the URL and copyright info, has been seen nearly 600,000 times, mostly on Tumblr and Facebook. This problem of lack of credit is one that lots of artists have dealt with and quite a few have talked about over the past several years, but it continues to persist. It makes me wonder if there could be some kind of fix.

The Phil Coulson Memorial Awards: ComicsAlliance’s Best Comics of 2012, Part 5

05philcoulson

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a

Parting Shot: Ehud Lavski Shows The Other Side Of The ‘Space Invaders’ Story

Since 1978 fans around the globe have been blasting away at the pixelated aliens of Taito's Space Invaders and its numerous sequels and re-makes.

Artist Ehud Lavski break
