The Continuum continues nine days on the road with more coverage from Mid-Ohio-Con.


Michael Avon Oeming said he is confident that Them, the in-development television series based on his graphic novel Six, is in the right hands.

"I'm convinced if it goes to pilot, it will make it as a series," Oeming said at his panel at Mid-Ohio-Con in Columbus, Ohio, late Saturday afternoon.

Devil's Due Publishing will continue its series of Family Guy books with a fourth volume in March, the publisher's Josh Blaylock told The Continuum Saturday at Mid-Ohio-Con.

"It's done really well for us," Blaylock said of the license. "It's a very, very challenging project to work on because the approvals are very strict."

Blaylock said the Family Guy books made inroads to Blockbuster and Hot Topic and that the trade paperback (shown to the right) released early this month had a good promotion with Barnes & Noble.

Blaylock said that, unlike the first three volumes, the fourth won't center on one character. He said that Devil's Due's deal would allow for even more Family Guy volumes.


Adam Hughes told The Continuum that he has started writing the first issue of his All Star Wonder Woman series for DC Comics.

Appearing at Mid-Ohio-Con on Saturday, Hughes said he's already feeling pressure about the project. DC announced Hughes involvement in All Star Wonder Woman several months ago at Comic-Con International, but has not scheduled the six-issue series yet.

"Everybody wants it right away, but I'm only one guy and I'm doing everything," Hughes said. "I'm trying to get it done as fast as I can, but I want to make it as good as possible."

Hughes, who is exclusive to DC, said he is happy with the story, which he has described as an "iconic interpretation" of the character.

"It's really good," he said. "On projects you always have those moments where after they come out you go, 'D'oh, I wish I would have done that.' On this one, I'm trying to do all that now so when it comes out, there won't be any missed opportunities."

Hughes said he has worked hard the last two months to clean up all previous commitments so he could focus on All Star Wonder Woman. "Only about a month ago, I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel," he said.

While focusing this winter on All Star Wonder Woman with no more convention appearances until February, Hughes said he will continue to provide covers for Catwoman.

"I love Catwoman," he said. "And you also have to let people know you're still in the industry."
