DEADLINE: Disney Makes Pitch Deal For 'Stuff Of Legend' With Pete Candeland Directing-
Stuff Of Legend, a graphic novel written by Mike Raicht & Brian Smith and illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III, has a bit of Toy Story and The Chronicles Of Narnia in it. A young boy in 1944 is abducted by the Boogeyman, dragged by the ankles into the closet realm known as The Dark. The boy’s puppy rallies his toys to follow his master in a rescue mission. Once in the closet, each of those toys become menacingly large and agile creatures who engage in a war with the Boogeyman’s forces. Those armies are comprised of the other toys stored in the closet, a mix of medieval knights, cowboys and toy soldiers. The intention is to make a live-action film set in a CGI world, like Alice In Wonderland.
FORBIDDEN PLANET: Best of The Year 2012: Chris Ryall -
Zach knows, and I want the world to know, that I think he is one of the top two or three artists working in this business today, bar none. His craftsmanship, his attention to detail, his care and passion for his work, and his staggering talent has been on display for years but I really think it’ll be his creator-owned book, Wild Blue Yonder, in 2013, that leaves a lasting impression. He blows the doors off everything he touches and this book is going to reach new heights. Working with one of the best colourists I’ve seen in years and a damned fine artist in his own right, Nelson Daniel, WBY is one of the things I can’t wait to see next year, and to re-read for years to come.

WHAT'CHA READING: Checking in… with IDW’s Wild Blue Yonder -
Digging through the “to read” pile I came across issue #5 of Wild Blue Yonder, on the stands on July 23rd this is a mini series I love, one that people have sung the praises of since it launched. Obviously I had dropped the ball, missed the issue. Would it still hold up even though I hadn’t read issue #4 since March? Only one way to find out.
