thumb_headshot.jpgWell, it now looks official.

This morning Variety announced that Warner Bros has acquired the screen rights to Du Plomb Dans La Tete (aka Headshot in English), the three book BD series I produced with Matz for Casterman (France).

Variety reports that the film will be produced by Alexandra Milchan and 'Smallville' creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar. Alessandro Camon ('The Messenger') is set to write the screenplay.

This is great news, especially as this is the third series written by Matz to be optioned by Hollywood within the last twelve months.

So You Think This Is Funny?!...

If you haven't already been laid off, this is a great time to be an editorial cartoonist. We see some good stuff here in Australia, but with the weird shit going down in the States at the moment, it is the (few surviving ) US cartoonists that are hitting the home runs these days.

I'm a huge fan of Pat Oliphant and crank up my computer every morning eager to see his latest work. The stuff he is currently producing on the US election campaign has been some of his best work (he absolutely nails the whole Republican/Sarah Palin farago) and should see publication in every newspaper, worldwide. So why are so many of his contemporaries being laid-off or retired just when we need them the most?

Thank heavens for GoComics.

These are tough times for any supporter the current US regime, and Michael Ramirez often struggles not to look too desperate. But today's effort was near perfect...crmrm081009.gif

I was pretty happy with the art, but someone further up the food-chain wanted someone else. I think they're still looking...
