Random bits of comic book news

Joss Whedon's doing another year's worth of Astonishing X-Men stories, with a Giant-Sized Astonishing X-Men #1 at the end. He's also doing a three-issue Serenity mini-series at Dark Horse, which is going to cover ground between the end of the Firefly TV show and the beginning of the Serenity movie.

The long-promised Astro City storyline The Dark Ages is being promised once again; it'll be sixteen issues, dividing into four four-issue arcs.

At the same link as above, we learn that Alan Moore's Halo Jones will be reprinted by DC. Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere will be adapted for comics.

Hunter S. Thompson, the man who was the inspiration for Doonesbury's Uncle Duke, has died. It appears to be a suicide. Let the conspiracy theories begin.

Finally, Kyle's Republic is featuring a reprint of Salon's Alan Moore interview. If, like me, you have issues with Salon's day-pass weirdness, you can check it the piece out here.
