Superman and Batman "motion comics" planned

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Batman: Black & White" and "Superman: Red Son" will be adapted as "motion comics," with animation and voiceovers used to "enhance" the original comic book stories. Sounds like a high-tech update of those horrible 1960s Marvel Comics cartoons.

Anyway:

Warner Premiere and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution will adapt the graphic album and graphic novel into digitally downloadable episodes that bring the comic to life by combining the artwork with subtle movement, voice-overs and musical scores.

The companies introduced their first motion comic at this year's Comic-Con with the initial chapter of "Watchmen," which adapted the first issue of the 1980s comic book miniseries into that format. Dave Gibbons, the original artist, was even tapped to redraw certain parts of the story.

I've always admired the work of comic book artist Graham Nolan and am pleased to hear he's returning to comics after stints working on the Phantom and Rex Morgan M.D. newspaper strips. Nolan will be working on Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four, one of the publisher's "youth"-aimed comics, which I think is a great idea. I'd like to see DC and Marvel put veteran super-hero writers and artists on all such books, providing an "old school" take on these characters for both new and aging (like me) readers to enjoy.

DC Comics has again generated some cheap press coverage by killing off another character--this time it's poor old Pa Kent (who actually died in the first Superman tale 50 years ago and was later revived for Superboy stories and again in the 1980s, I think, for the post-Crisis reboot and the 1990s "Lois and Clark" TV show).

Mystery and comics scribe Max Allan Collins is completing an unfinished Mickey Spillane "Mike Hammer" novel.

The Goliath Bone (Harcourt, $23), based on Spillane's rough draft, goes on sale Monday, 61 years after Hammer, the iconic hard-boiled private eye, solved his first case in I, the Jury. It will be the 14th Hammer novel.

"It's hard to imagine what popular culture would be like right now without Mike Hammer," says Collins, 60, who began writing fan letters to Spillane when he was 13.

Yet another Led Zeppelin box set on the way

If you've yet to update your Led Zep LPs to CD, here's another chance. Out Nov. 4, the Led Zeppelin Definitive Collection (at least until the next one) collects all the band's albums in sleeves that replicates the original LP packaging (like that cool twirly wheel thing on the cover of Led Zep III).

Here's the skinny:

To celebrate the band's 4oth anniversary Atlantic Records/Rhino Entertainment will release a limited edition CD boxed set. This Japanese import contains all 10 of the quartet's albums in mini-LP replicas with artwork from the original U.K. LP sleeves.

The mini-LP replicas boxed set includes Led Zeppelin (1969), Led Zeppelin II (1969), Led Zeppelin III (1970), Led Zeppelin IV (1971), Houses of the Holy (1973), Physical Graffiti (1975), Presence (1976), The Song Remains the Same (1976), In Through the Out Door (1979), and Coda (1982).

The sleeves included in the boxed set feature the original LP album artwork released in the U.K., including the original printing of the group's debut, which used turquoise ink on the cover for the band's name and the Atlantic Records logo. Later printings used orange ink, making the first a rare collector's item. The orange sleeve is included with the boxed set as a bonus.

Led Zeppelin III features the gatefold sleeve with the rotatable laminated card disc, while Physical Graffiti, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for best album package, features the interchanging window illustrations from the original LP jacket that included four covers made up of two inners, a middle insert cover and an outer cover.

Additionally, the set includes all six covers released for In Through the Out Door, Led Zeppelin's final studio album. Nominated for a Grammy Award for best album package, the In Through the Out Door covers feature different photos of the same bar scene taken from different perspectives.

Live Sex Pistols DVD out next week

According to Rhino:

The DVD also includes the new 80-minute Temple-directed feature The Knowledge, which documents the Pistols poking around London town and revisiting their favorite haunts from back in the day. Temple first filmed the band in 1976, and previously directed the Sex Pistols documentaries The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle ('80) and The Filth And The Fury ('00).

Avengers join slate of animated Marvel TV series

Marvel Comics has an Avengers 'toon in the works. Details:

Marvel Entertainment, announced today the production of an all new animated
series, THE AVENGERS: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Production on 26
half-hour episodes is already underway using the production services of
Film Roman, producer of the Simpsons and King of the Hill.

The new series, expected to be available for broadcast in 2011,
continues on Marvel's already impressive television line-up which
includes the all-new Wolverine and the X-Men and Iron Man: Armored
Adventures series that will both debut on Nicktoons in 2009. Marvel
Animation will also debut the all-new series Marvel Super Hero Squad and
The Black Panther next year.

THE AVENGERS: Earth's Mightiest Heroes is an all-new property featuring
some of Marvel's all-time favorite characters including Iron Man, Hulk,
Captain America, Thor, Giant Man and Wasp. When the planet is
threatened by Super Villains, time traveling conquerors, alien invaders,
mythical monsters and mad robots bent on the total destruction of
humanity, when forces of evil are so overwhelming that no single hero
has the power to save the world, when there is no hope left...the
Avengers assemble!

"The addition of THE AVENGERS: Earth's Mightiest Heroes to our quickly
expanding animation slate continues our plan to complement each of our
tentpole live action features with an animated series," said Eric
Rollman, President of Animation. "This new ensemble series tracks
perfectly with our highly anticipated 'road to the Avengers' strategy
which includes some of Marvel's biggest and most beloved characters, and
which kicks off with two Avengers' themed feature films in summer 2011."

Sunshine Superman DVD documents Donovan

Info:

It would be fairly easy to contend that Donovan is one of the greatest figures in rock history. You could cite his thirteen British hit singles. You could cite his innovative, ingenious and meticulously textured blending of disparate genres such as jazz and folk and rock, not to mention medieval, Indian and Caribbean music. You could cite the songs of his, which have been covered by heavy hitters such as Joan Baez, Kate Bush, Hole, the Allman Brothers Band, Nigel Kennedy, Eric Burdon, Jefferson Airplane, Al Kooper and Stephen Stills. Likewise, you could cite the influence he has had on the likes of the Beatles and Marc Bolan. But it would be equally easy to contend that, notwithstanding such mighty achievements, Donovan remains one of rock music s most underrated and misunderstood figures.

Sunshine Superman The Journey Of Donovan is the ultimate life story of the 60´s folk-pop phenomenon. The deluxe double-DVD set contains classic 60´s film and TV appearances, rare archive footage and never-before-seen material as well as 5 previously unreleased songs and all of the hits. With appearances by Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Mickie Most, Rick Rubin, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Franco Zeffirelli, David Lynch (and many more) and a 40 page booklet chock full of informative liner notation and exclusive photo material, Sunshine Superman is the ultimate story of Donovan s remarkable and unique four decade career.
