Sexy CINDERELLA: Returns in New FABLES Spin-Off

It's no secret I love Fables and Jack of Fables.  They're two my favorite books.  I've read the series numerous times and anxiously wait each month's new release.

Last year when Chris Roberson released the special mini-series entitled, Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love I immediately fell in love with the book.  I really fell in love with Chrissie Zullo's covers of Cinderella.  She made Cindy look so damn sexy!  The story was excellent and I craved more once it was ended. 

Hallelujah!! My prayers have been answered!  The sexy, smart, tough, fashion-conscious spy is back in February with another story of espionage and action.

Cinderella: Fables are Forever, a spin-off from the hit Vertigo series Fables, reunites the same creative team as last time, with i, Zombie's Chris Roberson writing and Shawn McManus drawing. Chrissie Zullo is also back doing covers.

And this time, the story will be tied to what's going on in the main Fables title.

Newsarama has a interview with Chris Roberson abvout this project and other items he is currently working on for DC.

Live Action Hulk Series Coming to ABC

According to Deadline, The Incredible Hulk is muscling his way to prime-time TV. ABC is in very early stages of development of a live-action series adaptation of the popular Marvel comic book character. There is no writer on board yet with search underway. Marvel, which was acquired by ABC parent Disney last year for $4 billion, started a major push in TV in June with the launch of Marvel Television whose goal was to adapt Marvel characters and stories to the small screen. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb (Smallville) and his team quickly zeroed in on The Hulk, with rumors of a potential Hulk live-action series first surfacing in mid-summer.

The Hulk is the second major comic book character to get a prime-time treatment for next season. Warner Bros. TV and DC Comics are developing a Wonder Woman series with The Practice creator David E. Kelley.

What other Marvel, DC, Image, Boom, etc. properties should get their own television series?

Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson to Team Up in Boom! Comics 2 Guns?

It’s been awhile since we've heard anything about the 2 Guns project over at Universal. Based on the Boom! comics of the same name, the last it was rumored that Blake Masters was writing the project.

Now, Vince Vaughn has signed on to star in Universal’s buddy-cop action film and may re-team with his Wedding Crashers’ co-star Owen Wilson, who is eying the project as well, according to Pajiba.

The comic was written by Steven Grant with art by Mat Santolouco. This follows a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who are unwittingly investigating each other and who steal mob money for the good guys. They realize later that the mob actually got them to steal $50 million from the CIA.
The project is pegged to be a throwback to the ’80s buddy cop movies in the realm of Lethal Weapon and 48 Hours but with a modern spin.

No director has signed on yet. No production date has been set.

Love Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson together. Match made in heaven.

Super Sexy Villainess Halloween Costumes for 2010 (Possibly NSFW)

A very intelligent person once said, "“Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”  It's sad to think that so many women throughout our country feel they can only dress this way one-day-a-year without being labeled. 

Well ladies if you're going to go the sexy/slutty route this Halloween, why not get in touch with your inner "bad girl" geek? What's sexier than a bad-girl?  Not a damn thing!

The last two weeks we began our weekly Halloween feature which highlights one sexy superhero costume each week until October 31.  This week decided to go the "bad-girl" route and show-off our favorite female villain costumes. 

Hopefully these costumes will provide a bit of inspiration for our lovely, beautiful and secretly "bad" female readers to wear to this years party or your favorite heroes bedroom.
