    – Ali Adler, an executive producer on Supergirl, claims that the show is treating Superman like Veep features the president – often referred to, rarely seen. If memory serves, until Selina Meyer became the president, the president was actually never seen. I feel like this is the Supergirl team, essentially, saying that Superman won’t be on the show at all. We’ll see – the show debuts in October.

    – Rio Rancho High School will officially have Gilbert Hernandez’s “Palomar” back on its shelves come the fall, after there was controversy raised about the material being ‘pornographic.’ The solution that the school is using is simple: if a student is under 18, they need a parent’s signature to check the book out.

    – After optioning the rights to TV, Jim Starlin is looking to return to writing and drawing his Dreadstar character at some point soon, at a yet undetermined publisher. Starlin says how he wants to have at least a few issues of a new miniseries done before shopping it. This will mark the first time in 28 years (if it comes out in 2015) that Starlin has drawn his creation.

    – The first two images for Cinemax’s Outcast have been released and…they’re certainly set photos, aren’t they?

    – Boing Boing has an exclusive preview of the new graphic adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” by Troy Little, which will be released by Top Shelf this fall.

    The Iron Giant is getting re-released in theaters, giving me and folks of my ilk another chance to embarrass our kids by crying in public.

    – And, finally, William Shatner’s 1996 novel “Man O’ War” is getting a graphic adaptation by writer Mariano Nicieza and artist Wilson Ramos Jr. Your dreams are coming true! Yes, yours!
