That would the symbol for the conjoined version of Mal Duncan and Firestorm after the Zeta Beam accident...
BPD is getting strange rumblings of activity in Neo Orleans. A pair of retired couriers is on the trail of one Grace Anderson--and the CIA is apparently trailing them. Reporters Marc Bernadin and Adam Freeman are covering the situation, with photographer Lee Garbett providing the pictures. Of course, BPD will be offering its own take on the situation in days to come.
In other news, old weapons never die... they just find new battlefields. A Soviet-era superbeing has been "reactivated," triggering new tensions between the United States and the former Soviet Republics. The reporting team of Peter Milligan and C.P. Smith are providing coverage for WildStorm International.
Look for these and other late-breaking stories on Bugle's Planet Daily!
If you've turned on the news any time in the last 72 hours, you've seen that southern California has been ravaged by wildfires. The area in and around San Diego has been among those hardest-hit.
BPD was very glad to receive email from WildStorm yesterday, indicating that they are in the office. We don't know if the staff of WildStorm (or any of the other comics businesses in the region) is in any immediate danger at home or at work, but we want to let them know that they and their families are in our thoughts. If there is anything we can do to help any comic book publisher's staff deprived of home or property by the fire, we hope they will not hesitate to contact us.
Let's hope that everyone comes through fine.
UPDATE- Comic Book Resources posted an excellent news report on comic book businesses in San Diego and Los Angeles, including phone conversations with Jim Lee, Scott Dunbier and Chris Ryall (IDW) and how they're coping with the fires. Give it a look.
The editors of Ye Olde BPD are getting together to discuss where we are and where we want to be with this page of ours.
There have been some hurdles and challenges bringing you... well, what we bring you. A few of you have given feedback—which we love and appreciate—but now we're at sort of a crossroads and need to know what you'd like to see or see more of.
Let us know what you like: favorite items, favorite columns, even favorite writers or subjects. We will consider all of the feedback we receive, because it's all about making you (the readers) smile.
