    October 10, 2012 7:04 pm I don't know what's up with that -- most of today's Image releases seem to be absent. They were up there early this morning (I checked!), but have since gone missing. They're available via the Image app, and I'm sure the Comixology absence is some kind of glitch. I bet it'll be fixed before too long.

    October 5, 2012 12:44 pm So Dan Slott is the "showrunner?" Who's the Key Grip? Who's the First A.D.? Who does the casting? I kid because I love... -- Jay
    March 9, 2012 1:11 pm The first NEW WARRIORS series stands out as one of my all-time favorites. Even after Bagley left, we got a young Darick Robertson, stayed for a gorgeous run. A few years ago I was hired to do an 18-page NW story for Marvel's digital line. It was set during the early days of the team. It turned out kinda cool and while I finished the script, I don't think the art was ever finished and I doubt it'll ever see the light of day at this point.
    December 3, 2011 10:43 am @Kmanifesto - I guess the latest issue of Near Death would benefit me the most, since that's the only book I'm currently working on.
    December 2, 2011 3:38 pm @Kmanifesto - I just hope my comic book cred is never in doubt. ;-) I've been writing comics for over 10 years, and I've been working in television for less than a year. And yes, it's not lost on me that Near Death would be pretty easy to translate to TV. My agents are certainly shopping it around. But that's just gravy -- the comic book is the meal, as far as I'm concerned.
    December 2, 2011 1:08 am @Kmanifesto says: Near Death is a television ‘spec script’ in the guise of a comic book. Just wanted to say that is 100% not true. Whether you enjoy the book or not is one thing, but it's meant to be a comic, first and foremost. Yes, I work in television so it's not inconceivable that Near Death could make the leap from comics to TV, but that's not the purpose for the book. It's a comic -- if it's never anything but a comic, it'll still be a success in my eyes. I'm only having a strong reaction to your innocent comment because, as a comic book fan, I can't stand books that are obviously thinly-veiled TV or movie pitches. You know, stuff like Cowboys & Aliens, where they do the bare minimum necessary to create a comic and then use it as a movie pitch.
    August 6, 2011 11:23 am @balsalm  We're actually aiming for mediocre crime drama. I hope you'll still check us out! ;-)
    August 5, 2011 7:31 pm @kennyg  Believe me, we're well aware of that particular moral gray area.
    December 17, 2010 1:57 pm @Cormac - Yeah, I get what you're saying. And I'm glad Millar is putting so much emphasis on his creator-owned work. I wish all creators would do that!
