According to Bleeding Cool, Neal Adams has inked a deal to draw a Wolverine comic.  Adams has drawn for Marvel in the past, and even worked on the X-Men.  But it was before Wolverine was even created.  So this is big news:  A comic legend meets a legendary character … for the first time.

No notion of when this project is happening, as Adams is still busy with his return via the maxi-series Batman: Odyssey.

And if you’ve never heard about the novel before, here’s some of the rave reviews it’s already received:

“Ghost Radio reminded me of early Stephen King — Carrie and Pet Sematary and The Dead Zone. The story sticks with you long after you’ve finished the final page.”

– James Patterson

“A first novel that moves with deserved confidence into Stephen King territory … Palpable, almost visible cross-cultural creepiness that never lets up: very smart thrills.”

– Kirkus Reviews

“A deliciously creepy yarn … Gout’s fusion of radio-show culture and paranormal occurrences produces a winning compound.”

–  Booklist

“A thrilling literary and visual experience, this contemporary ghost story set in Mexico is a fast-moving and enjoyable read. The story and writing style recall early Stephen King and Joe Hill’s Heart-Shaped Box.”

– Library Journal

Doc Savage Movie On Again!

Posted in Books, Comics, Movies, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror with tags , , , , , on February 23, 2010 by ghostradioworld

According to Variety:

Columbia Pictures is set to return to the Bronze Age.

Studio is bringing Doc Savage — known as the Man of Bronze and hero of pulp novels, films and comicbooks — back to the bigscreen.

Now here’s the real good news:

Shane Black is attached to direct the film from a screenplay he is penning with Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry. Neal Moritz (“Fast and Furious”) will produce through his Sony-based Original Film banner.

Shane Black

Black, for those who don’t know, is an icon in the Screenwriting community for his impressive scripts all sold on spec.  Notably Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, and The Long Kiss Goodnight.  He also directed one of the best films of the decade Kiss Kiss Bang Bang from his own script.  Bargorozzi and Mondry are friends of Black’s.  Neither have previous screenwriting credits.  It’s nice to have friends.

And from interviews we know that Black is a fan of the pulp fiction era which gave birth to “Doc Savage”.  For fans of the pulp icon, this is very good news.

Let’s hope this version of the project actually gets made!
