Dark Horse Comics is teaming up with Universal Cable Productions to adapt some of their library comic titles for television. The first batch of comics set to get the small screen treatment will include the following titles:
The Umbrella Academy: Created by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, the comic follows the reunion of the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes with bizarre powers who must now save the world.
Harrow County: Based on Cullen Bunn’s just published work, the story follows a teenage girl who learns she is connected to the sinister woodland creatures that populate the dark woods surrounding her home because she is the reincarnation of a witch who died the day she was born.
Back Up: Based on a film script by Tom Vaughn, the story is set in a near future where technology allows people to be backed up, much like hard drives, in a way that helps them protect themselves against death.
Concrete: The Eisner Award-winning title by Paul Chadwick, the story follows a man who awakens to find his subconscious transplanted into a hulking stone body.
UCP will collaborate with Dark Horse to develop “character driven concepts for television intended to resonate with their current fan base”.

The main reason to attend the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” panel on Thursday at San Diego Comic Con seems to have vanished into the ether.
EW reports that those hoping for a new trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to premiere at the convention are out of luck as the next trailer isn’t due until this Fall. In fact, the presentation is said to not contain any new clips from the movie at all.
There were rumors of a behind the scenes featurette screening at the presentation, but now it looks like that’s no longer the case.
So what will we see? Director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy will be on stage to talk about the film, and there is reports that several actors who haven’t yet spoken publicly about their roles will make an appearance.
In this episode AJ and Anthony discuss Peter Parker and Miles Morales as well as review Terminator Genisys!

If you read my column consistently, you know we take our children everywhere and conventions are no exception. We enjoy sharing these experiences with our children and believe they are instrumental to their development in many ways, providing both fun and education and plan to continue to share these experiences with them for the duration of their childhood.
Some parents want to take their entire families to a convention, but have obligations like attending panels, networking, hosting events, interviewing attendees, or sitting through celebrity events on the exhibit floor and taking children along for these types of events can be arduous at best and down right miserable, leading to impossible at worst. Hours upon hours of standing in lines and fighting vicious crowds to get the shot you need, the interview you need, the exclusive action figure you need… it can be brutal.
ComicCon has your solution and before you immediately raise your hand against the notion of ever allowing your child to leave your side in this type of atmosphere, let me just tell you about this place.
