J. TORRES TALKS TEEN TITANS GO!

J. Torres, writer of DC Comics' Teen Titans Go! comic based on the Teen Titans television series, told The Continuum that Red-X will be appearing.

Red-X was originally an alias that Robin used to try to fool Slade, but eventually someone else got ahold of the technology and adopted the identity.

"I have my suspicions on who he is, but they wouldn't let me reveal the identity in the comics," Torres said. "That's for the show, if they decided to do it."

Torres said he also has plans for Titans East, including Mas y Menos. "They have a big crush on Starfire, just like they do on the show," he said.

Torres, who keeps in touch with Teen Titans story editor David Slack, said writing for a book based on a television show has been easy.

"It's too fun to be difficult," he said. "I love the characters and and I love the show."

Torres also noted that Atlas will appearing in Teen Titans Go! #20 in June and that David Galloway is the new cover artist.

ASPEN COMICS UPDATE

Aspen Comics' Michael Turner said that the Fathom live-action movie remains in the works.

"They call it development hell for a reason, but I hope we can get out of it," Turner said last weekend at Wizard World L.A.

The film has been through several permutations, starting as animation but then being develped by James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment for 20th Century Fox. Previous versions of scripts seemed to stray away from Fathom's comic-book roots.

"We're getting ready for a new script," Turner said. "It's in a good place. Keep your fingers crossed."

Meanwhile in the comics, Fathom #0 is now available, with the Fathom Beginnings and Fathom Prelude book to follow before the release of Fathom #1 in June. The Fathom Prelude features a cover by Ale Garza.

New Aspen pencilers Marcus To and Micah Gunnell debuted in the first Aspen Seasons book. Turner said that next Seasons book will be in the fall. "We look at the Seasons Book as launching points for new ideas," Turner said.

In other Aspen news:

* Turner has provided an Atomika cover for Speakeasy Comics and a Red Sonja cover for Dynamite Entertainment.

* The Soulfire Statue, due in May, will also be available in a Platinum edition, featuring gems.

* Turner said that his next project either will be for DC Comics or Ekos with Geoff Johns at Aspen. "Geoff and I are still talking about Ekos," Turner said. "We've been working on it for a long time."
