Sneak Peek: "Pushing Daisies" Comic

Pie and a comic book?

Only a few more days to go to Comic-Con and, while I've already seen the pilot for ABC's Pushing Daisies about a zillion times (check out a new promo here), I cannot wait to attend the Q&A panel after the pilot screening with the cast and crew of Warner Bros. Television's new drama.

Along with giving out pie to the first 300 attendees (the pie is an in-joke that those of you familiar with the series will already get), Warner Bros. has unveiled the cover (shown left, thanks to the good folks at Warner Bros. Television) for the comic book companion to Bryan Fuller's super-saturated supernatural drama Pushing Daisies.

It's a Comic-Con exclusive, which means you can only get the Pushing Daisies comic book next week in San Diego at the Warner Bros.' booth.

Supplies, as they say, will be extremely limited so be sure to drop by and get your Pushing Daisies comic before they're gone!

I SOOO want one of these. Can I get in line now?

Get in line behind me, Wes. Do we know if this is going to be based on the pilot eppie or whether it is a standalone story with the PD characters? Either way I want a copy.

Can you get this if your not going to Comic Con? I want one and its not fair that you have to go there to get it.
The CineManiac said…
So giving away at the booth only or also at the panel?

What about everyone not able to go to Comicon even if we want to, how do we get a copy of the comic?! Not fair.

Why is it not fair? It's a Comic-Con exclusive, so if you want it you have to go to Comic-Con. I don't understand what's so hard to understand about that.

Not everyone can go to Comicon and are still interested in the show and the comic book. Why shouldn't any fan of the show be able to get the comic book? What's so hard to understand about that? Maybe the premiere of the show only should be aired in NY and everyone who wants to see it has to go there. It's just stupid.

So... you're saying that if an event was giving out gift bags to people attending, you'd feel you were entitled to one even though you didn't attend? I fail to see your logic at all.

As for your specious "analogy" about the show only airing in New York, that's ridiculous. We're talking about a promotional tie-in for a series that's being handed out at a promotional event/convention. Did you think you should have gotten a CW t-shirt last year when the network promotional team was touring the country?

I'm sorry I have to agree with Owen. It would be hard to give this out for free to every fan who wanted one.
As for you, if you really want one I'll try to pick up an extra one and then you can buy it from me.
Or check eBay.

Like Cinemaniac said...if you want one badly enough I'm sure you can find it on eBay.

The comic is such a fun idea. I really hope this show makes it. It's one of the few original pilots out there.

I agree with Owen too. This is a promotional give-away. If you want one that desperately, I am sure you can find it online. Or go to Comic-Con yourself and get one. Those are your options, Anon.

okay see... here's what is not fair... what about the fans that live in Europe? I can't just fly over to attend the comic-con! you know what that would cost me? but I still want the copy of that comic... they have to create it soon... I'm in love with they way they drew Olive! She rocks :D

Damn - I am going to be on the wrong coast this weekend. I guess I will just have to steal yours, Jace.


(Sorry, spent all weekend reading Harry Potter...)

There's an EXTREMELY limited run with an alternate cover drawn by none other than Tim Sale... and it's beautiful. You didn't hear that from me.

To answer Maggie's question, the book covers some back story for the pilot, and sets up a new story that will be followed in books to come.

A t-shirt is not the same thing, at all. This is a comic that ties in with the show. It's part of promoting the show, but why not promote it even further and make the comic available for those who want it. I'm not asking for a free copy, I want to buy it and support the show (and not overly priced on eBay).

It's not a stupid comparison with the show airing in only one city, if you don't live there or can go there - you miss out on a part of the story. Same thing with the comic book. That's what's ridiculous. You don't miss out on the story with a t-shirt.

And there's more comics to come?
The CineManiac said…
I got two copies of each of the covers. Can't wait to read it!
And the Tim Sale cover kicks some serious tale!
Jace Lacob said…
Yep, I got my two copies...with both the original Pushing Daisies cover and the Tim Sale variant and have read it. Nicely sets up two separate stories. More to come on that front...

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t
