Family Guy Becomes A Comic Book…Next Month

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

family guy to become a comic book

By now, we've got Family Guy DVDs, t-shirts, boxers, posters, shot glasses, playing cards, soundtracks, and NOW there are comic books too.

The first-ever Family Guy comic hits stores on July 27, and according to editor Steve White, it promises to delve deeper than ever before into the Family Guy characters/world:

"'The Family Guy' universe is an amazing wellspring of ideas to plunder. It's given us a lot of latitude to develop stories ranging from one-page gag strips to more extended full-length scripts and pretty much everything in between."

"We're even looking at recurring one-pagers, but as I said, really, the world is our oyster here."

More on the characters to be featured in the comic:

"There's no way we would want to miss out on using the likes of Quagmire. There's also a wealth of other characters we'd want to include. We're not just paying lip service to the show. We're really immersing ourselves in it."

And more from White on how the comic book came to be:

"We felt that Family Guy TV show to Family Guy comic was a natural progression, but Fox needed a little convincing. In the end, we winged it and did a two-page comic strip off our own back and that actually seemed to do the trick."

And here's White on show creator Seth MacFarlane's potential involvement:

"If Seth ever fancied taking time out to write a comic strip or do a cover, we'd be pretty appreciative."

What do U think about a Family Guy comic book? Will U give it a read?

Garfield Creator Issues Apology Over Offensive Veterans Day Comic Strip!

Filed under: Oops!

garfield-creator-jim-davis-issues-apology-over-offensive-veterans-day-comic-strip

Somebody is totally getting fired over this.

Yesterday, a Garfield comic strip was published (above) that seemed to imply that the holiday Veterans Day was 'National Stupid Day,' offending members of the armed forces and pretty much anyone else, so creator Jim Davis has issued a statement that claims that this is just a really unfortunate case of bad timing!

It reads:

"Dear Friends, Fans and Veterans,

In what has to be the worst timing ever, the strip that runs in today's paper seems to be making a statement about veterans. It absolutely, positively has nothing to do with this important day of remembrance. It was written almost a year ago and I had no idea when writing it that it would appear today—of all days. I do not use a calendar that lists holidays and other notable days so when this strip was put in the queue, I had no idea it would run on Veterans Day. What are the odds? You can bet I'll have a calendar that lists everything by my side in the future. You'd have to go a long way to find someone who was more proud and grateful for what our Veterans have done for all of us. Please accept my apologies for any offense today's Garfield may have created. It was unintentional and regrettable."

He makes a pretty good case for himself! Poor guy must have been blindsided when he realized what had happened!

However, this is still a pretty big oversight! Hopefully people will pay more attention to the content that's being published on days like yesterday!

Thoughts??

R.I.P.

AAACK!

After almost three and a half decades, the Cathy comic-strip is coming to a close!

Creator Cathy Guisewite will end the strip, which has run in about 1,400 newspapers, on October 3rd to spend time with her family and pursue other creative endeavors.

She said:

"After almost 34 years of meeting newspaper deadlines. I'm facing some personal deadlines whose requirements simply exceed my ability to procrastinate any longer: an 18-year-old daughter who needs a full-time mom to help her through her last year of high school and beyond … beloved parents I want to be able to visit more often … and a creative biological clock, which is urging me to try something else while I can."

It had a good run. Will U miss it?!
