Middle-aged fanboy goes wild
I didn’t get in to see the Watchmen panel at Comic-Con in
* At a panel commemorating the 75th anniversary of Doc Savage, comic book guru and movie producer Michael Uslan announced that a film about Clark Savage, Jr., is definitely in the works.
* Now 59, Lindsay Wagner (the real Bionic Woman) still elevates my pulse.
* I spent ten minutes or so talking with the great Jim Steranko, trying not to blubber like a schoolboy. He told me that Dark Horse plans to re-issue his 1970s graphic noir novel
* In chatting with Blake Bell, author of the terrific new Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko, I learned that Fantagraphics hopes to start issuing new compilations of Ditko’s otherwise uncollected works by next summer.
* Joss Whedon’s new Fox series, Dollhouse, debuts next January. Joss was at Comic-Con with series star Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tru Calling) and the show looks fantastic.
* Now 58, Erin Gray (Buck Rogers in the 25th Century) still elevates my pulse.
