As usual, Comic-Con totally delivered on the geek news front:
*Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game is going to be made into a comic book. My brother loved this book, but I never got over Card’s introductory essay, where he explained that anyone who didn’t absolutely love the story probably just wasn’t smart enough to appreciate its genius. (Yeah, I’m summarizing... but, seriously, that’s what he meant.)
*There’s going to be a game called DC Universe Online for PlayStation 3 and PC. Players will be allowed to invent their own characters and interact with an online landscape peopled by other players and about 150 autonomous heroes, villains, and sidekicks from the DC Comics universe.
*The third book in Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series is coming out. I’ve always found this series 75% revolting and 25% brilliant, but I’ll probably end up checking it out.
*And—last but not least—Korean singer/actor Rain will be appearing in the (no doubt Oscar-worthy) movie Ninja Assassin:
