Joss Whedon’s latest project just hit Hulu
The popular graphic novel Astonishing X-Men by Joss Whedon and John Cassaday just launched on Hulu as a motion comic created by legendary comics artist Neal Adams. And what the heck’s a motion comic? It’s a video based on the artwork from the comic books, using all the original words and drawings, and Marvel is hoping the new form will change the way we read comics.
“At this point in the history of motion comics, Gifted is the very best motion comic book out there,” Adams said in an interview on the Hulu blog. “There will be some in the future that will be as good if not better, but right now it’s the best one.”
Adams also had this to say about about Whedon:
“I guess there may be a better script writer out there, but is there someone more used to the form of both comic books and film? I don’t think there is.”

Where no fans have gone before
www.mailtribune.com: Terry Erdmann and Paula Block became Trekkies almost by accident.
The Jacksonville couple recently left long careers in the entertainment business in Los Angeles, during which time they both found themselves transported into the vast, complex Star Trek universe.
Erdmann worked as a publicist for Paramount Pictures and was assigned to the set of “Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier.”
“I spent every minute on that set,” Erdmann said. “After that, I became Paramount’s Star Trek person. In the entertainment business, when you do one thing, you suddenly become an expert on it.”
Block, who worked at Paramount’s licensing department, joined Erdmann on the Star Trek set.
Soon, the pair were assigned to write a companion book for the “Star Trek: Deep Space 9” series.
More Star Trek-themed books followed and suddenly they morphed into Trek experts.
You want proof? Their work is cited on several Star Trek Wikipedia pages including the entry dedicated to one Capt. James T. Kirk.
“Appearing at the bottom of Wikipedia articles about Star Trek was an experience,” Block said. “You know you’ve made it when that happens.”
It’s so great that you had the opportunity to work in something you really like. Have you become an expert in something?
