Here’s Your First Look At The “Women of Marvel” Variant Covers Coming This March

Yay talented ladies!

Despite the fact that DC Comics and Marvel are slowly, sloooowly geting better when it comes featuring different types of gender, racial, and body diversity in their books, the behind-the-scenes ratio of male to female comic creators leaves something to be desired. So it's cool to see that in March, Marvel will be doing a special variant cover event to highlight their pool of female artists. But is it enough?

We were excited to hear Evan Dorkin and Jill Thompson's Beasts of Burden comic was picked up for a film adaptation but since we hadn't heard any news since 2011 we weren't sure it was still happening. Well, good news! They've attached an Academy Award-nominated director.

15 Pieces of Jill Thompson’s Pitch Art For A Never Made Sandman Movie Trilogy

eye candy

It seems like I've been waiting for ages for more news on the putative American Gods series that Neil Gaiman is penning the pilot for and HBO is considering. And in the meantime, I'm hoping, really hoping, that it actually gets off the ground, unlike this Sandman movie adaptation. Jill Thompson, who also did art for the comic series prepared a number of watercolor paintings for its pitch presentation, to help communicate to movie executives what the visual tone of the story (planned as a trilogy of films) might be like. The movies never got made, but Thompson's original art for each picture is available for around $800-$900 each on Cadence Comic Art. That's certainly out of my budget, but looking at them on the internet doesn't cost much at all. I've picked out a few of the less spoilery or foreshadowy ones to feature here, but if you're a fan who's already finished the series, you'll undoubtedly love seeing the rest.

That's gotta mean something, right?  (via LiterateKnits) What other wonders did we find on the internet today?

Things We Saw Today

In before somebody says this isn't a comprehensive look, that it doesn't acknowledge of the sexualization of female characters on either side of the picture, and that their favorite character isn't represented/isn't representative of that archetype. Think of it as a discussion starter. (Reddit via Blastr)

Beasts of Burden to Become a Feature Film

Inside of a dog it's too dark to read

Something tells us that if you liked Oliver & Company as a kid and grew up to become a slightly more twisted adult, then you might be into the Dark Horse comic Beasts of Burden. And if you are indeed a fan of the paranormal investigating pets, then you will be very excited to know that the comic is being adapted into a full-length film. Originally an Eisner Award-winning short story, Beasts of Burden was turned into a successful comic series by writer Evan Dorkin and artist Jill Thompson. And now, it's getting the CG-animation treatment from the people who brought us Shrek. There is reason to believe that this could be, at the very least, super interesting.
