Dark Horse Comics announced today that it is adding a Prometheus comic book series, based on the recent Ridley Scott Alien prequel, to its lineup of horror/science fiction titles based on Twentieth Century Fox licenses and simultaneously rebooting its other Fox SF titles. Paul Tobin will write the new Prometheus comic, while Chris Roberson will take on the rebooted Aliens comic, Chris Sebela will preside over the makeover of Aliens vs. Predator, and Joshua Williamson will handle similar chores on Predators. All four books will inhabit a shared universe and DHC says the writers of all four books are coordinating their efforts. So it appears the connections between the titles, which are due to debut in 2014, will be significant, though no formal crossover has been announced.
Tobin told i09 that the new Prometheus comic book will feature new characters and will not just focus on continuing the adventures of Elizabeth (played by Noomi Rapace) and David (Michael Fassbender). But The Engineers and the theme of creation will be a core concern of the new series, which will be able to examine the subject in greater depth than in the movie. Tobin also expects to clear up a few mysteries like the difference between the "eggs" depicted in the original Alien movie and those in Prometheus.
While DC Comics has steadfastly refused to confirm that a series of prequel stories for the characters in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen are currently in the planning stages, Bleeding Cool now says that its stories about the prequels have been confirmed “quite conclusively by a reliable source at DC Comics."
According to Bleeding Cool, Andy Kubert will be drawing one of the four Watchmenprequel miniseries, and “he may not be the only Kubert getting involved with this.”
It appears that Alan Moore remains implacably opposed to the creation of any additional Watchmen comics—and given the narrative perfection of the original Watchmen miniseries, which is easily the bestselling graphic novel of all time, the author’s opposition is understandable. The aesthetic bar against which the “prequels” will be measured is extremely high, which probably explains DC’s reluctance to go public with the project before the publisher has all its ducks in a row.
A movie based on Danger Girl is in the works from Benderspink with three actresses attached to star, according to Latino Review. Danger Girl was the 90s creation of J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell, published by then Image Comics studio Wildstorm.
The three actresses reportedly attached to the project are Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale, and Sofia Vergara.
In George Gene Gustines’s "Makeover for Wonder Woman at 69," JMS revealed that Wonder Woman’s flag-inspired outfit (a hallmark of the character in comics and on TV since her creation) would be upgraded to a "less costumey" look for the 21st Century. According to the article, when Straczynski was asked by DC to write Wonder Woman, one of the first points he addressed was her costume. In an email to DC, JMS wrote “If you’re going to make a statement about bringing Wonder Woman into the 21st century, you need to be bold and you need to make it visual. I wanted to toughen her up, and give her a modern sensibility.”
Designed by superstar artist – and DC Comics Co-Publisher (with Dan DiDio) – Jim Lee, Wonder Woman’s new fighting togs are more contemporary and functional, darker in color, and, with an eye toward future cinematic adaptations, designed to give the heroine a more movie-friendly look.
“The original costume was the American flag brought to life,” said Lee. “This one is a little more universal.”
A former journalist and writer of novels (Demon Night), TV (Babylon 5), film (Changeling) and comics (The Brave and the Bold), Straczynski was tapped to chronicle the adventures of Wonder Woman by DC based on an essay on the Diana of Themiscyra’s impact on cultural mythology.

“Wonder Woman is a strong, dynamic, vibrant character who should be selling in the top 20, and I’m going to do all I can to get her there,” Straczynski told the Times. "
