Oni Press & 60Frames to Launch Original Web and Comics Series
Emmy-Winning writing and producing luminary Tom Fontana ("Oz," "Homicide") and “Freaks and Geeks” writers Gabe Sachs & Jeff Judah to kick off Initial slate for new Oni Press and 60Frames web venture.
"Freaks & Geeks"? Aw, now I'm missing that show again.
I wasn't clear from the press release - is the content of the digest-sized comics/graphic novels and the web-strips going to be the same (ie, the comics will reprint the web-strips)? Or will they tell different stories from the same world/franchise?
J'adore "Freaks and Geeks" it is my all time favorite show! LOL! I'm a little like Lindsay Weir in that I was really geeky when I was younger and I guess I kinda started dressin' a little more tomboyish later on in life with big baggy clothes like the coat she always wears. I hafta admit, I was never much of a "mathlete" though...although being awesome at math probably woulda made life so much easier.
Oh right, this is about comics! Yay for Indy comics! LOL!
Writer and Creator
Sounds like a smart idea to bring in big writing guns. Dr. Horrible show there is a niche market for webisodes as well. I just wish I could ditch the nagging feeling that the whole thing is designed as a pitch machine for feature films rather than an entity unto itself....
