“24”: Two Spinoffs Passed, Development Ongoing
Stop us if you've heard this one before. Kiefer Sutherland is set to star in a series where there's action, intrigue, adventure, and double-crosses- but it's not 24 or Designated Survivor (or his brief journey over to Quibi for The Fugitive– "brief"… get it?) Nope, this time the actor is set to play a private spy[...]
In Defense of Licensed Comics: Why Media Tie-Ins Matter
Fading, it seems, are the days when a company would be as bold as IDW Publishing was in 2004 when they published a 24 comic book Major companies seem to lack interest, with Supernatural just sitting there with a huge audience and DC not having published a media tie-in comic for the series since 2012. Veronica[...]

Fox Interested in '24' Prequel Series with Young Jack Bauer
Credit: Fox So would that make it Pre-24? 2B4? Young Bauer? If this one doesn't work, would they try a sequel series set in the future called 24 – but with Donald Sutherland as Jack Bauer? Presumably believing that the number of their attempts to restart the franchise should equal the title of said franchise, Fox is[...]

Whedon's beloved and influential series starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, David Boreanz, Alyson Hannigan, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, Seth Green and James Marsters.

38 Thoughts About 38 Comics – Outcast, Saga, Trees, Chew, Revival, C.O.W.L, Justice League, Futures End, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Batman Eternal, New Avengers Annual, Uncanny Avengers, Batman, Original Sins, Savage Hulk, Wolverine, X-Force, Invincible, X-Files, Turok, Flash Gordon, Dejah Of Mars, Solar, Super Secret Crisis War, Transformers x2, 24, Deceivers, Green Hornet, Bravest Warriors, Amazing World Of Gumballs, Clockwork Angels, Nightbreed, Peanuts, 7th Sword, Ghostbusters, My Little Pony And Turtles
 Will anyone make an objection? Okay, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #30 shows the danger of that. Though they'd probably have a better case against the hamster cheeked Jack Bauer in 24…  New Avengers Annual does look very very pretty and goes on the kind of ethereal painted journey through the pages, twisting and turning panels with[...]

It probably has gorilla glass anyway. A traditional 24 greeting… Even a Princess Of Mars can get slobbered on by doggie drool Hey, we're allowed to call her Princess Of Mars now, right? X-Files #12 derives its power from the foreshortened barrel of a gun But only because our eyes allow it. So… comics what have you picked up today?   [...]

And for Red Lamnterns, as ever, it helps to have the kind of lisp that I have when pronouncing the letter "R", and be British, for one character to have added amusement in the language stakes. Heh heh. 24 #1, just like the Crossed Annual, seems to have a thing for grandmothers being described in unfortunate terms… Eternal[...]
24 #1 Sells Out Of 12,000 Print Run
Not every comic book gets a massive media push for its launch. But 20th Century Fox were kind enough to lend a hand to IDW's licensed 24 comic, the prequel to the upcoming film 24: Live Another Day coming out on the 23rd April. Which has meant a rapid advance sellout for issue 1 from the distributor to[...]

This is the premise of 24: Live Another Day,[...]
