Fandom Lounge's Journal - Day
Saturday, October 9, 2010
So is anyone else here a fan of the "Warriors" series of books? I'm aware that they're technically children's books (about the same age group that Harry Potter started in, I think) but they are so well written and well-planned out that it doesn't seem very "children's book" to me -- there's a lot of characters being born and other characters dying and some pretty hefty concepts (not that I don't think kids can handle those concepts; on the the contrary, it's refreshing to see a story aimed at children that is told with that realistic tilt of real-world dangers and demands).
I'm just curious to know if any of you out there have read these books? I'm on book six of the third series "Power of Three" (and just spoiled myself at the official website trying to see if I was right about my hunches, which I was right about one of them) and I am eagerly anticipating the fourth series to start being put into paperback.
10:59AM - Zombies to infect the comic book worlds of GI Joe, Transformers, Star Trek and Ghostbusters
At NYCC 2010, IDW announced INFESTATION! Starting in January 2011, INFESTATION will infect STAR TREK, GHOSTBUSTERS, TRANSFORMERS and G.I. JOE comics with zombies, zombies, and more zombies. To help create this multi-dimensional saga, IDW is teaming up with fan-favorite writers Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning (The Thanos Imperative, Legion of Super-Heroes) and artist David Messina (TRUE BLOOD).
“This is definitely one of those ‘there’s no way they’ll ever do this’ kind of events,” said IDW’s Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall. “But not only are we doing something fans never thought they’d see, we’re doing it in a way that should confound and exceed their expectations. And doing it with real pros like Abnett and Lanning just makes it that much sweeter, especially knowing what they’ve got planned as a follow-up to this event.”
Setting the stage for this massive event, Abnett and Lanning will pen INFESTATION #1, launching in January 2011. This initial 32-page story begins in IDW’s own ZOMBIES VS. ROBOTS universe, where something goes terribly wrong and ultimately infests the worlds of TRANSFORMERS, STAR TREK, G.I. JOE, and GHOSTBUSTERS with zombies and infected robots. From there, the story spins ferociously into each of the four properties throughout February and March, and culminates in April’s bombastic finale, INFESTATION #2.
...“We’ve found a way to involve all of these diverse titles in a massive storyline that has ties all the way back to the early days of IDW,” continued Ryall. “I think fans will be amazed by what we’ve pulled together here, as well as the stories that will come out of this once-in-my-lifetime event.”
