Grant Morrison And Vanesa Del Rey's Sinatro – Finally – This Autumn

In 2010, I was at San Diego Comic Con, writing for Bleeding Cool. It was just me and Brendon back then, reporting the entire show single handedly. A different time.

So around 7pm, I was upstairs in the conference centre outside the panel rooms crouched down against the wall using a power socket for my laptop, writing up news of a new Grant Morrison movie, Sinatoro, just announced.

The director Adam Egypt suddenly e-mailed me out of the blue to meet with him downstairs. I posted the news, found him below and also met Grant Morrison as well – for the first time I think, at least to talk to. It felt like the walls of fiction and reality were breaking down. Morrison is good at doing that. And so I wrote this and recorded the following audio.

That was then. The film seemed to stall. Then on October 2014, it was announced as a comic book to be published by Black Mask Studios in2015.

That was then as well. And there was no mention in the recent "Class Of 16 blast" from the publisher.

But in the Black Mask Free Comic Book Day title out this coming weekend, as well as a preview of the new We Can Never Go Home series, the ongoing Young Terrorists books and teasers for new titles is a new ad for Sinatro.

And a new date.

That's autumn to you and me….
