LIVE-ACTION BLUE BEETLE?
Geoff Johns over at DCU has posted some pics of a live-action special effects test for Blue Beetle. According to Johns:
I feel very fortunate to have been a part of Blue Beetle’s introduction way back in INFINITE CRISIS. I’ve said it before, but thanks to the BLUE BEETLE series launched by Keith Giffen and John Rogers with a great design by Cully Hamner, Jaime Reyes rocks. Great character, great story, great look. He’s already appeared in animation, had action figures and right now he’s on my computer in live-action glory. I have an early special effects test that has been floating around of what his armored scarab-suit could look like. This isn’t final. This isn’t greenlit. It’s only a test that was done. We still have a long way to go to see if we can get this off the ground and a lot of people to jump on board…

What with the World Cup it’s the perfect excuse to get a wee bit patriotic. Here at Pixelverse we’ve been doing our bit (!) by delving back into the origins of some of 2000AD’s most iconic characters - Nemesis the Warlock, Rogue Trooper, Halo Jones, Slaine, and mean ol’ Judge Dredd himself. With alumni including Alan Moore, Kevin O’Neill, Pat Mills, Simon Bisley, John Wagner and so on, 2000AD really is something special. Here is a great way to sample the best of 2000AD - ah, it makes you proud to be British!
