The Perfect Prize that Waits Among the Shelves
Tom McLean's Bags and Boards reports on a project I haven't publicized yet: A short prequel comic to the upcoming SciFi miniseries TIN MAN, written by me and drawn by Siju Thomas. TIN MAN, which airs in December, is a hard-edged updating of The Wizard of Oz. It features a great cast including Zooey Deschanel, Alan Cummings, and Richard Dreyfuss, and some really gorgeous set designs.
The comic was a giveaway at Comic-Con San Diego, but Tom reports that it'll be rolled out on the SciFi website and for cellphones soon. Don't read it while you're driving!
Tom has the first five pages up, and SciFi has a very cool TIN MAN website.
And just to clarify: This project was packaged by Virgin Comics, but it's not directly related to the Virgin/SciFi imprint that I'll be editing. More on that soon.
