The Sculptor movie

Movie studios will always bend over backwards for a good idea and that’s what happened earlier this week. Sony Pictures won a bidding war to pick up the rights to a graphic novel called The Sculptor by Scott McCloud. McCloud is a comic book legend, having created the Eighties sci-fi comic Zot! before transitioning into more of a mentor role by publishing books such as Understanding Comics and Making Comics.

The Sculptor is McCloud’s first major work of fiction in many years. It follows a man who makes a deal with the Devil to be a genius sculptor for 200 days, after which he’ll die. Read more about The Sculptor movie adaptation below. Read More »

‘Dreadstar,’ From Thanos Creator, Headed to TV

Dreadstar TV series

He also wrote and drew Dreadstar, originally for Marvel’s offshoot imprint Epic, beginning in 1982. That character was in development as the basis for a film, but now things have changed, and the development effort is focused on a Dreadstar TV series.
