This weekend at the Avatar Press junket the publisher added more news to the already smoldering pot that they have brewing for “CROSSED” fans as they announced plans to bring series creator Garth Ennis (“PREACHER”) back to the series next year for an all new monthly series. The series titled “BADLANDS” will premier next year from the publisher and be written by Ennis with illustrations from Jacen Burrows. “BADLANDS” will be the first arc of the ongoing series, and will be picked up once the arc ends by scribe Jamie Delano.

This weekend has been full of insanity, and if a pen fight over seating at the Resident Evil Afterlife panel isn’t evidence enough then I don’t know what else to tell you. (Sources say that the two parties still do not realize how stupid the cause of the argument was. More details at 10)For most, today is a bittersweet one, as it marks the official end of the comic book utopia, and now the fair residents of San Diego can finally begin to drop the 14 megatons of Febreeze on the city via helicopter that it will take to cleanse it of the cloud of body odor that has covered it for the past 4 days. However, that said there are still some big news bits making their way out of the building, and one of those happens to be the announcement of an all new animated series that is in development from Marvel Studios based on none other than “BLADE”. The series will air of G4 TV when it makes its debut next year, and presumably it will take place in Southeast Asia. Details were few and far between at the Marvel panel, but we will be sure to update you as news becomes available. For now the untitled “BLADE” animated series is slated for a 2011 air date.
