Hey all! Changes are a coming for this site. Namely that it will be defunct quite shortly as we've relaunched Say goodbye to the users and portfolios — as much I loved having them as part of the original site it's not really what Comic Foundry is about any more. So say hello to a streamlined site with our integrated blog, story archive and issue excerpts. You can also now buy issues of the magazine and subscriptions through the site!

So head on over to the new site, update your links and update your RSS feeds. See you there!

Mark Millar on Superman Movie Sequel

Mark Millar just posted that he got turned down for writing the Superman movie sequel because he was too associated with Marvel:

Well, sadly, I'm a Marvel guy and we were surprised to find out that WB couldn't hire me for a DC property. They were incredibly nice and superbly apologetic about it, but when they discussed the matter seriously DC explained just how associated I am with Marvel Comics at the moment and it's against company policy to hire the competition. It's absolutely nothing personal. I spoke to some friends at DC and they explained this has happened with a couple of big Marvel writers in the last couple of years and I absolutely respect that.

My question is: How is that different when super-DC guy Geoff Johns wrote and produced for the Blade TV series (a Marvel property)?

Vertigo's I Am Legend Trailer Online

The trailer to Vertigo's series of online comics that serve as a prequel to the December film I Am Legend is up and in HD.

The first online issue, by Steve Niles and Bill Sienkiewicz, is available here.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of flat art that's later animated, but I'm not going to poo poo any attempt of comics moving ahead with more progressive media ideas.
