I usually review the weekly Valiant releases separately but I think it’s understandable that after the first issues or arcs that a lot of needless repetition can and often will occur in terms of opinion on theme or backdrop. It’s why I personally have always found issue by issue reviews at even places like Newsarama and Cbr to be largely useless, usually not offering anything that a publisher’s synopsis doesn’t already cover. It becomes a grind. After the first issues we kind of get it unless we are talking about event comics, and I don’t mean just company wide crossovers but also works that are introducing something new, either in character or big picture direction, like an Identity Crisis or even Valiant’s current Divinity miniseries, which feels like both an event and cosmic vignette at the same time.

Continuing a day of pre-upfronts excitement that threatens to Never End, NBC has ordered two more dramas and picked up one of its bubble dramas. Ordered to series are "Game of Silence" and "The Player," while "The Night Shift" has been renewed for a third season. This is also the Sony Pictures Television part of our day, as NBC has a history of package deals with the studio. "The Player" is, intriguingly, NBC's second drama fronted by a "Strike Back" star, joining "Blindspot" with Sullivan Stapleton. Wesley Snipes and Philip Winchester star in this drama about "a former military operative turned security expert who is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop some of the biggest crimes imaginable from playing out."

And that’s a wrap – the lone question mark remaining on The CW’s lineup has been resolved, with word that freshman apocalyptic drama The Messengers will not be returning for a second season.
Lukewarm reviews and paltry ratings made cancellation very likely for the show, which followed a group of individuals tasked with tracking down the Devil himself and preventing the long-foretold end of days. Shantel VanSanten (One Tree Hill), Sofia Black-d’Elia (Gossip Girl), Joel Courtney (The Haunting Hour), Jd Pardo (Revolution) and Diogo Morgado (The Bible) all starred in the series.
The CW relies on its teen audience to tell it what they like, and the writing was on the wall for The Messengers when it failed to spark anywhere near as much interest as freshman series Jane the Virgin, The Flash or iZombie. That it premiered to a downright awful 1.2 million viewers and a 0.3 rating practically »

Here’s what went down in a nutshell: a meteor — or something meteor-esque — crashed into Earth, causing five seemingly unrelated strangers to lose consciousness and develop supernatural abilities: visions of the future, super-human strength, etc.

Fans of the Warner Bros. Television series Revolution, which ended a two-year run on NBC in May 2014, are going to get a resolution to the show's storylines that were left open-ended in the final broadcast episode. In response to passionate fan efforts to revive the show, the entire creative team behind the series - including executive producers Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Rockne S. O'Bannon and Jon Favreau - regrouped to create a special four-chapter digital comic book with DC Comics that will serve to continue and ultimately resolve the adventures last seen in Revolution's second season finale.
Revolution writers David Reed and Ryan Parrott handled the writing duties of the digital comic's four chapters, after breaking the story in the writers' room along with the rest of the Revolution creative team, which included Kripke, O'Bannon, Paul Grellong, David Rambo, Trey Callaway, Anne Cofell Saunders, Ben Edlund, Matt Pitts and Jim Barness. »

Working alongside DC is Revolution‘s entire creative team, which includes series creator Eric Kripe, along with executive producers J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Rockne S. O’Bannon, and Jon Favreau.

All four of the chapters will have their own specifically designed cover, and a new chapter will be released every two weeks beginning on Monday, »

Yell “Stop!” at any time if this sounds familiar: A strange object strikes Earth with a blinding flash, triggering near-death episodes — and unleashing extraordinary powers — in five otherwise-unrelated strangers. Suddenly, they are part of something much bigger (what exactly being anybody’s guess), along with a woman who unexpectedly stirs out of her coma after seven years. Filled with religious overtones — including a mysterious figure known only as the Man — CW’s new drama “The Messengers” hints at the Rapture and Apocalypse, but based strictly on the busy, confusing pilot, it had better start getting somewhere soon, if not now.
The fantastic five altered (or perhaps awakened) by the object include a scientist (Shantel VanSanten), a young mother (Sofia Black-d’Elia) with an abusive ex-husband, an undercover federal agent (Jd Pardo) braving field work with the drug cartels, a young televangelist (Jon Fletcher), and a bullied high-school student (Joel Courtney).

Supernatural and Revolution creator Eric Kripke is developing a new comic book series entitled Amped for Vertigo Comics, while simultaneously developing the same property as a TV series for the USA Network. The six-issue monthly comic book series will debut sometime this fall, following a neurotic family man named Josh Jaffe, who tries to get out of a rut by purchasing an online "smart pill" to increase his focus. Much to his surprise, the pill gives him super-human strength, as the show examines the highs and lows of transforming into a superhero. Here's what Vertigo executive editor Shelly Bond said in a statement
"Eric has such a clever, irreverent cadence which makes him a natural writer for the Vertigo line. Amped promises to be as addictive as its title substance."
Eric Kripke also offered the following statement.
"Pretty much everything I've ever written has been insanely influenced by Vertigo, so »
Television writer and show developer Eric Kripke is headed back to television, this time on USA Network. The channel formally announced that they had picked up the upcoming comic series Amped for a show development. The show will be based on the upcoming DC/Vertigo series, which Kripke will also be penning, Variety has announced.
Amped will mark Kripke’s first return to television following the cancellation of the NBC post-apocalyptic series Revolution in 2014. Kripke is perhaps best known for being the creator of The CW’s Supernatural, shepherding the show through its first five seasons and through the merging of Upn and The WB channels.
USA Network released this synopsis about the television version of Amped.

USA Network is doubling down on WWE, bringing “SmackDown” over from Syfy next year as part of an effort to hike the volume of live programming on NBCUniversal’s flagship entertainment cabler.
The move of “SmackDown,” a slew of development projects, new programs featuring the Chrisley clan and summer scheduling announcements were unveiled Tuesday morning at USA Network’s press upfront gathering held at 30 Rock’s Rainbow Room.
USA Network president Chris McCumber made it clear in his presentation that the cabler is shifting the focus of its original programming to court a millennial audience. He noted that the generational shift of millennials now making up the largest component of the 18-49 audience is well under way. USA’s new shows are built around stories and characters that exhibit “bravery, optimism, self-reliance and hope” — all themes that resonate with millennials, per McCumber.
