Chew Goes Showtime

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve told folks I thought John Layman and Rob Guillory‘s Chew was going to be the next comic that hits television in a massive, massive way. I’m sure you’re all tired of hearing about it (laugh)! Especially those of you who attended our big launch party with author and all-around nice guy when this book was just getting started out.

But seriously… one part cop show, one part Food Network show, and a little X-Files thrown in for good measure? How could it not be the next biggest thing?!

Well we’re going to get our chance to find out! Today we’ve gotten the news that the comic will be airing on Showtime network with writers Terri Hughes Burton and Ron Milbauer of Eureka fame, and Californication director/executive producer Stephen Hopkins. That sounds pretty darn perfect!

Congrats to the entire Chew team, you guys couldn’t deserve it more! Click here for some photos of our big bash with Mister Layman and here for a video interview with him from Isotope ground zero.

Man, that John sure is a great guy isn’t he?

If I Had A Time Machine

If I had a time machine I’d travel back to hang out and talk about awesome suits w/ Pete Milligan and Brett Ewins.

The book they’re getting you excited about on this great vintage British tv show is the incredible future war comic Bad Company, a true thing of beauty. And on sale here at the Isotope, of course!

New Walking Dead Story by Kirkman

Heads-up Walking Dead fans!

You know how incredible the comic and the trailer for the TV show are already, and we know Robert Kirkman can write one heck of a great comic book… but can he write prose as well? Oh, you bet he can!

You won’t want to miss an exclusive Walking Dead story by Kirkman, alongside other original stories by zombie fiction legends like Max Brooks and David Wellington, in the new brain-eating anthology The Living Dead 2.

This is the first time Kirkman’s prose writing has ever been published and I wanted to make sure no one was missing out on it. So we got ahold of our friends at Night Shade Books and are giving you an exclusive Isotope sneak peek to wet your appetite!

Pretty awesome, isn’t it?

In celebration, every copy of The Living Dead 2 here at the Isotope comes with an absolutely free copy of another great Night Shade zombie book, Amelia Beamer‘s San Francisco flavored slacker zombie/comedy/romance The Loving Dead. We’re spoiling you with a cornucopia of tasty undead treats!

Folks outside of the Bay Area don’t have to feel left out, you can join in on the celebration and get a free book too, just order from the Night Shade Books website, enter “Isotope” in the Coupon Code box and we’ll get you a free Amelia Beamer hook-up too. Here’s the link:

The Walking Dead Trailer is Alive @ AMC

Break out your shotgun, the Walking Dead trailer is alive @ AMC!

After years of waiting, months of anticipation, and more time than we care to admit of outright obsessing about AMC’s adaptation of one of my favorite comic series of all, Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn, and Tony Moore‘s jaw-dropping zombie series The Walking Dead (did you know that you can find me in a pile of dead bodies in volume one? It’s true!)… the trailer is finally on-line.

And oh, it’s so good!

This show is being made by the fine folks behind two of the best shows to ever grace a tv set, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. And adapted for the small screen by The Shawshank Redemption director. I gotta say, we fans have a lot to get excited about!

Run, don’t walk, to the AMC site right now to get the first peek at what will no doubt be one of our favorite things shambling into 2010. Check out the trailer for yourself:
