Big News Day

First, Red 5 is working on its first movie deal! It will be very cool to watch this unfold from a semi-insider perspective.

Second, Atomic Robo and The Fightin’ Scientists of Tesladyne, the first trade paperback collecting Issues #1 – 6 (including all pin-ups and bonus stories) is now available to order! It should hit shelves June 11th, but you might want to claim yours sooner rather than later. The Robo buzz keeps building. I mean, Issue #6 pretty much went to a second printing the day it came out.

By the way, so you don’t have to go searching through Previews for the order number, it’s APR084084.

    Doesn’t take long for Hollywood to come knocking does it? Any chance of a Robo movie?

    So far as I’m aware, there are no serious talks about a Robo movie. But it’s important to note that an Afterburn movie makes it easier for a Robo movie to happen.

    Speaking of Nuklear Power, I read what you said about us comic buyers, yah big jerk.

    Do you reckon Atomic Robo would work better as a movie or as a cartoon, ala the Tick?

    I will only enjoy a Robo movie if it has Jar Jar in it

    You know,

    For our children.

    Yeah, you need Jar Jar. You know, because the kids, they need role models… slightly racist role models.

    My only demand for the impending Robo film is that the voice talent actually be able to do a spot-on Jack Benny. Then I could die with honor.

    @Josh: In an ideal best case scenario? I’d prefer movie (animated or not). The way the comic works, there’s no reason why Robo movies or video games couldn’t co-exist within the comic continuity.

    Kind of like what they tried The Matrix, I guess. They failed in that there was no way to appreciate or care about what information or events impacted each other from the animation, to the movie, to the games because it only made sense if you experienced it all and no one gave that much of a damn.

    It should work with Robo because we’d keep everything self-contained. If we made a video game and you never played it, you wouldn’t be lost in the comic. But the more stuff you’re exposed to, then the more you’d get out of it.

    In theory. ;)
