The Friday Back Issue Bin: Sept. 1 – 5, 2008

Alrighty, true believers — it’s been yet another spectacular, fantastic and uncanny week in comic movie news. Here’s a recap of some of the big stories we delivered:

– We kicked-off “Magdalena Week” here at Splash Page with actress and upcoming “Magdalena” film star, Jenna Dewan! Among the topics of conversation were super-heroine fashion, the possibilities of a Witchblade cameo, and the future of a “Magdalena” film franchise.

– Guy Pierce is interested in playing The Riddler…but under one condition.

– Brad Meltzer kicked off his campaign to save the “Superman House,” and we showed off some beautiful exclusive art from the charity auction.

– Stan The Man wants to see a Dr. Strange movie, and who are we to deny him?

– Nic Cage had plenty to say in terms of his upcoming comic book flicks, first about the over-the-top violence in “Kick-Ass”…

– …and then the return of “Ghost Rider” to the big screen.

– We showed off an exclusive preview of DC/WildStorm’s “Fringe” tie-in comic, and spoke with the cast and crew about the highly-anticipated TV series.

We spoke with “Buckaroo Banzai” creator Earl Mac Rauch about his slate of “Buckaroo Banzai” comics.

– Dark Horse Comics gave us an exclusive preview of their “My Name is Bruce” comic book tie-in.

– And we welcomed Splash Page co-editor Rick Marshall to the fold…hope he survives the experience!

Thanks for stopping by, everyone! We’ll see you next week!
