    Used to work for Radical. The book was promoted as far back as 2007. Ian Edginton did a lot of work on shaping the story before Arvid Nelson came on board. Just a correction, it was supposed to be an "illustrated Novel", meaning a prose book with full page spread artwork inserted thoughout.

    Despite what Heidi has recently written, I seriously doubt that this, or any Radical comic/book will ever see the light of day. Company is pretty much broke and begging for money. Also the publishing staff was let go or ran for the hills. Really a toxic environment to be in at the time.

    So it was Cowboys & Aliens all over again? No wonder I had an ingrained aversion to this movie!

    Well, if you're looking for an industry where you can get around that pesky issue of creator's rights, I guess comics are the place to go.
    ShadowMax: Has anyone actually verified this is the real Steve Wacker?

    Me: Quick Steve, tell us something only Steve Wacker would know.

    Steve Wacker: [The Marvel relaunch] secretly is a reboot.

    Me: If you mean the continuity won't match up with any of the preceding issues, anyone could have predicted that.

    Much appreciated. I got to work some great talent and some. Fellow co-workers. Radical really could have been something special without a certain two people screwing things up and screwing people over.

    Sometimes I wish Hollyweird would go back to adapting actual novels. There are plenty of SF novels yet to be adapted.
