Boom! Studios gets ‘innovative’ first look deal with Fox

201310030330.jpg

Somewhere in the Long Slog Of 2013′s Comic Book Movie summer, I probably suggested that 2 Guns might end up being the most important film in terms of how Hollywood deals with comics properties (relatively low budget non superhero fare); how true that will be remains to be seen but it DEFINITELY was the most important film for Boom! Studios. They’ve just signed a first look deal with 20th Century Fox, that, at least in the hype rollout, sounds promising in terms of how it involves comics creators:

TweetBy Nick Eskey My first impression when I entered the designated room was that it was much larger than previous years. Last time I was at this panel was in 2008. Then it was located in one of the smaller rooms off to the side. I remember it being quite cramped and stuffy. This year […]

Boom! Studios acquires Archaia

201306241504.jpg

Tweet Well, well. While the general state of comics is pretty healthy these days, there had been one company whose well-being we continually heard whispers about, and that was Archaia: an ill-timed move to a bookstore distributor two years ago left them with massive returns and a lot of cash flow problems. None of these […]
