Our pals Jon Schnepp and Holly Payne have THE MUST WATCH DOCUMENTARY OF 2015: The Death of “Superman Lives”; What Happened? available for you to watch on Showtime or support independent filmmakers by buying a copy here.

The documentary looks at the story behind Superman Lives, a film that was cancelled only three weeks before filming was set to begin. In the film Schnepp interviews several people involved with the development of the project and shows artwork and designs that would have been featured in Superman Lives if it had been made.

Legendary Meltdown Comics to Host Signing with Original Creator

LOS ANGELES, CA July 19th, 2015 – Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today a signing for their Invader Zim comic series at Meltdown Comics with original show and comic series creator Jhonen Vasquez and original show and comic series artist Aaron Alexovich on July 22nd. With issue #1 released on July 8th to a massively positive reception, this will be the first time Jhonen Vasquez and Aaron  Alexovich sign the comic book adaptation of the hit Nickelodeon show outside of convention appearances. The signing will be hosted by Los Angeles’ mecca for all things comic book, comedy, podcasting and pop-culture related, Meltdown Comics.

In 2001 animation fans were introduced to Zim, the diminutive, naïve Irken soldier, assigned to invade Earth to keep him from disrupting his leaders’ plans to expand their empire. Arriving on the unsuspecting planet, he tries to blend in by disguising himself and his malfunctioning robot sidekick GIR as a human boy and his dog. Zim is constantly hounded by his nemesis Dib, who recognizes his alien nature, and Dib’syounger sister Gaz. The show and Vasquez’s iconic characters went on to become cult classics with a following to this day. Fans have been waiting for the return of Zim and GIR; now they have it in the first all-Zim comic book series, part of Nickelodeon’s commitment to bring its beloved classic characters to new audiences.
