I understand a Fantastic Four Omnibus collecting all the Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch stories will ship in February 2010, 400 pages at a rather attracting $75.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje was interviewed outside Mann’s Chinese Theater with , regarding the Black Panther movie he’s been attached to. He said “you’ve heard the rumours and there’s some truth to it that we’re now setting up, sitting down, taking talks with Marvel… I want to be the one to wear that suit. If you’re going to be in this genre of superheroes that’s the man. We have Obama as the real life superhero and now you need one on the screen and I’m the boy to do it.”

“I think I’d make this guy real… I’m, Nigerian, I can infuse all the rituals and customs and character, even the language… I’d knock this baby out of the park.”

Antarctic Press’ President Evil gets the kind of international love which usually predates some kind of mental sellout and queues outside the stores. Whereas Fantagraphics gets the kind of high art coverage that, sadly, doesn’t.

Press coverage of the John Ostrander benefit touches on the one aspect that makes me uncomfortable about these things – what is Ostrander wasn’t a much loved talented comics creator? What if he’d been a mediocre dick? Wouldn’t he still have been as deserving of glaucoma treatment?

Kerri Kauffman, Upper Deck’s director of marketing talks about “a line of cards it expects to launch next year under an exclusive agreement with Marvel Comics”.

As one of the more popular Indian comic books moves to feature film, actor Kunal Kapoor talks about undergoing serious trauma to play DoguM. This includes training in Parkour, developing a much more muscular body in record time. Haven’t they heard of CGI and muscle suits in India? No, no they have to do things the hard way. Dogu is the story of an orphan found in a rubbish tip, brought up like a dog and using that to form his new identity.

Oh and The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus, directed by cartoonist Terry Gilliam, gets a UK trailer.

Palm Pre appears in an online comic created by Marvel Comics based on the upcoming ABC remake of The Prisoner. “I am not a number! But you can always call mine. It’s 555–”
