Runaways Movie on the Way

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on May 22, 2008 by Vincent Kremer

“Runaways” is the latest Marvel Comics book to get the big-screen treatment from Marvel Studios.

Brian K. Vaughan, who co-created the series with artist Adrian Alphona, is writing the adaptation, for which Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will act as producer. Vaughan is also a co-producer and writer on ABC’s “Lost.”

As opposed to other Marvel characters getting the silver screen treatment, such as the Hulk and Spider-Man — who have been around since the 1960s and are pop-culture fixtures — the heroes in “Runaways” are relatively new, with the comic series launching in 2002.

The title was critically praised for its honest portrayal of teens and their issues and in 2006 won a Harvey Award for best series.

“Runaways” follows a group of teenagers who find that some family secrets are bigger than others when they discover their parents are actually super-villains. Running away from their homes, the teens band together and begin a journey of discovery, both of their parents’ origins and of their own inherited powers, while trying to make up for the evil done by their folks.

While Marvel has already scheduled its next four films through 2011, “Runaways,” like the company’s “Ant-Man” project, remains in the incubation stages.

Vaughan is well known in comic circles for his creator-owned works including “Y: The Last Man,” which is in development at New Line, and “Pride of Baghdad.” Via THR

Jonathan Ames on The Alcoholic

Posted in Interviews on May 22, 2008 by Vincent Kremer

Jonathan Ames writes, performs, and boxes. He developed a Showtime pilot based on the autobiographical sketches in his book What’s Not to Love?, starred in the independent movie The Girl Under the Waves, and appeared on the David Letterman show. The novels I Pass Like Night, The Extra Man, and Wake Up, Sir! are his. With an off-Broadway one-man show also on his resume, Ames hasn’t met a storytelling form he hasn’t wanted to try his hand at.

He’s also friends with Dean Haspiel, so it comes as no surprise that Haspiel eventually convinced Ames to try his hand at the world of comics. The resulting graphic novel, The Alcoholic, is the often amusing, often harrowing story of writer Jonathan A.’s (it’s fiction, Ames swears) descent into substance abuse and self-loathing after the girl of his dreams hangs him out to dry.

Jonathan Ames answered our questions about The Alcoholic, the autobiographical truths in fiction writing, and working in comics for the first time.
