A Wheel of Time TV adaptation is finally happening!
TV is definitely the format for it – it’s too sprawling for movies. And unlike another epic fantasy series I can think of, the story’s already done. (Early GoT convinced me that this sort of thing *could* be done on TV)

I probably should’ve posted that here, but I’m never quite sure where to post stuff that overlaps topics (like TV adaptations of books).
Anyway, I really hope this turns out to be good. My wife & I have talked on many occasions about which books might make full seasons or half-seasons or should be interleaved if someone did a GoT-style TV adaptation.
And casting… OMG we were fan-casting back when the Buffy cast were in the right age range.
I don’t plan on re-reading the series at this point, though. 14 looooong books that I’ve read already (and of which the middle four were…well, middling). I’d rather take that time to read something new, or re-read something shorter, or both.
Finished reading Night and Silence, the latest October Daye book by Seanan McGuire. Toby’s family keeps getting more and more complicated. And I’m concerned about the consequences of one character’s last-ditch rescue effort.

This sounds amazing: BOOM is going to be doing graphic novels based on The Magicians (the books, not the TV show), starting with an OGN next summer focusing on Alice: her life before Brakebills and the events of the first book from her POV.
I’m not familiar with artist Pius Bak, but writer Lilah Sturges is a perfect choice.

I found this old post I wrote on how Marvel or DC would have milked Lord of the Rings as an “event” comic book, with tie-ins, spin-offs, and character spotlights…
…and realized it’s not that far off from what the Hobbit movies actually *did*.
What If…Lord of the Rings had been an “Event” Comic?

#reintroductions #introductions Hello, my name is Kelson. I’m a computer programmer in the #LosAngeles area. I like #scifi, #fantasy & #comics (behind on a lot, keeping up w/ #TheFlash, Saga & #JessicaJones). I tend to talk about #webdevelopment and #tech, and I still have a #blog.
I also talk about #books at @KelsonReads (currently reading Sparrow Hill Road) & post scenic #photography at @kelsonv
#introductions time! I’m an LA-area programmer, #scifi / #comics / #fantasy fan & hobbyist photographer. I’ve been @kelsonv for a while, but I keep meaning to look for a more specific instance for fandom-related discussions. It looks like this might be it?
Watching #iZombie, #TheFlash & #TheMagicians, way behind on a bunch of other shows. Favorite comics ATM are #Saga & #AstroCity.
In the middle of re-reading all of #LesMiserables, currently on the chapters introducing Marius.
It’s weird how it hides the instance name…my other accounts are on mastodon.social (my main one) and photog.social (my photography). Maybe I should’ve picked different usernames as well just for clarity?

A great Melisandre. She’s got the stare down too. (Friday at Comic-Con 2013)

And no, the head doesn’t come off. Not unless you really work at it, I imagine.
