Just in case there aren't enough book-to-screen adaptations for us to keep track of already, news of another came today: Damn Nation, which was published by Dark Horse Comics in 2005. It was written by Andrew Cosby with artwork by Jason Shawn Alexander.
This week I want to talk about an artist who blows my mind on a monthly basis — Jo Chen, the cover artist on the bestselling, award-winning Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight.
I’m writing my inaugural Dread Central blog right after seeing the remake of Friday the 13th, which has stirred my love of the horror genre in unpredicted ways. I’m not committed to the whole slasher genre, even though when the original F13 came to cable I was about thirteen myself, which I still think of as the perfect age for that stuff.
You may not be familiar with The Cleaners, a new horror comic from Dark Horse, but we’re aiming to fix that. Earlier today I posted my interview with the book’s writer, Mark Wheaton, and now we’ve got an exclusive look at early art from Issue #3, which hits stands in March, 2009!

I know, because you guys love us so much and appreciate all the hard work we do for you day in and day out, most of you have already started to think about what to get us for Christmas.

After the depression known as both AVP flicks, Dark Horse Comics is bringing hope back to us nerds everywhere by relaunching the comic book franchise that we've been gushing over for the past 10 years!
Now this just makes me smile; THR got word this morning that Dark Horse, David Fincher and Blur Entertainment are joining forces to bring Eric Powell’s The Goon to the big screen as a CG-anmiated film. And damnit, I love The Goon.
Though something tells me it's not going to be anywhere near our genre when it's finally done, THR reports this morning that Dark Horse's Mike Richardson is getting behind the production of a feature film for Emily the Strange, the gothic girl created by skateboarder Rob Reger back in the 90's who's apparently gone on to become an iconic

If there's one thing I wish stores like Target and such would carry more of, it'd be Hellboy stuff. I guess everyone's afraid that junior may see the word "Hell" and start saying it around the house, but parents are cool with those little prosti-tot dolls called Bratz...
The fellows over at Comic Book Resources got wind of the news regarding who would be playing the lead role in a big screen version of the Italian comic book Dylan Dog. News of the casting was leaked to the Lying in the Gutters column of the site.
The folks over at Entertainment Weekly have posted one seriously bitchin' article on all things Joss Whedon, providing, among many exclusives, a sneak peak at "Buffy: Season Eight", which the man is currently writing as a comic book series.
