"(Hollywood Gang Productions)has optioned rights to graphic novel The Last Christmas from Image Comics.
Written by Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan, the novel revolves around Santa Claus, who turns his back on Christmas and goes into seclusion after nuclear war has destroyed the world. When the North Pole gets attacked, Santa must battle zombies and renegades to save the remaining survivors, and ultimately, the holiday."
Variety reports on the sale of The Last Christmas, illustrated by Rick Remender.
"Meconis' illustrations give us a square-jawed man with a speech impediment who drinks, chain-smokes and works in his shirt sleeves. The image of him on the night he conceives of his famous experiment is marvelous. Working late on Christmas Eve, Harlow accidentally locks himself in the monkeys' cage. The animals crawl all over him, nestling against his shoulders, and the annoyed look on his face is priceless."
The L.A. Times reviews Jim Ottaviani and Dylan Meconis' Wire Mothers: Harry Harlow and the Science of Love. (They also say she's an OEL manga artist, but it's a great review otherwise, so what the hell.)
