Lastly, Brian K. Vaughan is on a quest for world domination of all media. I sincerely hope that it does not disrupt the delivery of Saga in any way shape or form that he is now signed on to produce as well as write the CBS TV adaptation of Stephen King’s 2009 bestseller, Under the Dome (via Collider)

Have a nice weekend!

    I’m disappointed that Under the Dome is going to be on broadcast television. It would have done much better on one of the premium networks or even a cable network like FX.

    That said, congrats to BKV on the project finally making some headway!

  2. Jerry Smith says:

    Man, how dumbed down is BKV’s script going to have to be for CBS? Will a CBS intern go in and remove all words over three syllables? Good luck, Brian, but network TV? Yeesh!

  3. As nerd culture expands and sweeps into many other walks of life, I am finding myself taking a certain pride in not taking in part in quite all of it.

    “You’ve been THE WALKING DEAD, right?”
    Nope. Not one episode.

    I’m sure it’s great, but as our little chunk of the cultural landscape expands, I don’t feel a responsibility to take part in all of it any more. It will be fine without me. I’ve other things to do.

    It’s great to see some stability in our bailiwick.

    And that’s why I don’t feel bad about the fact that I’ll be skipping THE HOBBIT, too. But hey! A WONDER WOMAN show? I’m all about it. AMAZON is a great title. Smart move, crew!
