Each and every week, I, “Giant Robot!” Henchman 21 and “Space Robot!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 1, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
I thought I was going to have an easy list to write this week, but as I started seeing what was coming out, I had to keep adding things and adding things and adding things. It turned a shorter list into a longer list, but that just means you, the fine reader, have plenty to look forward to when you go to the store today. I hope you’re ready for some new series, some reprints, and plenty more on a jam-packed The GoD List!
It’s being reported that Dan Trachtenberg will make his directorial debut on a movie titled Valencia being produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot for Paramount Insurge. The movie tells the story of a girl who wakes up in an underground cellar after a car accident who’s told by a strange companion that a nuclear attack has devastated society.
New Line has chosen their director for the movie adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s brilliant graphic novel series, Y: The Last Man.
It’s being reported that Dan Trachtenberg, the co-host of the popular Totally Rad Show who showed off his filmmaker skills with that excellent Portallive-action short, will be directing Y: The Last Man. He steps in for D.J. Caruso who was attached to direct the movie for a long time, with Shia LaBeouf attached to star, before departing the project.
The Y: The Last Man project was removed from the back burner and made a priority in 2012, with the writers of Jericho, Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, grabbed to handle script writing duties.
Back in March it was reported that Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, a writing duo that had worked on the cult classic TV series Jericho, had been brought in to pen a new movie adaptation of the brilliant graphic novel, Y: The Last Man.
Now comes word that New Line Cinema is very much fond of the draft that Federman and Scaia turned in, and they’re putting Y: The Last Man at the top of their list of priority projects. New Line is also now set to start meeting possible directors for the movie.
Another day, another pretty fantastic fan film to be enjoyed.
This time around it’s the ultra-popular Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra graphic novel Y: The Last Man, which has been inside the Hollywood machine for multiple years now as attempted adaptations have failed over and over, getting the fan film treatment with Y: The Last Man Rising. But this isn’t your basic backyard fan film; no, no—this is a 21-minute small-scale blockbuster with a full cast and crew and some impressive special effects work.
The short covers two critical moments from Vaughan and Guerra’s work: the event that killed off almost every man, and the Amazons discovering that one man, Yorick Brown, is still alive.
