Chauncey DeVega's World of Ghetto Nerds: It is a Geek Renaissance--the Comic Book Series Fables to be Made Into a TV Series

What is going on in the world? It seems that the stars have aligned. In short order we have:

1. Batman: the Dark Knight may well receive an Oscar nomination;

2. World War Z is being made into a film--and the script is penned by J. Michael Straczynski;

3. the Wrestler to be released next week;

4. A bonified, unapologetic nerd who loves Conan and Spiderman as president-elect;

5. the New Caprica series has been green lighted by Sci-fi;

6. And now we have Fables, one of the greatest comics in recent memory being made into a tv series on ABC!

Who should play Bigsby wolf? Let the casting rumors begin...

What strange days we live in? What is next? Hmmmm.....maybe we can get a Walking Dead movie or tv series as well...then again maybe that is wishing for too much.

This is such a great announcement that it almost, notice I said almost, wipes the foul taste of what will be JJ Abrams's craptacular reimaging of Star Trek out of my mouth.

Ghetto nerds unite! Wonder Twin powers activate:

Not to rain on your parade, but methinks the antinerd backlash is growing. Punisher War Journal didn't exactly burn up the box office this weekend. Although to back up your hypothesis they've just released a 20th Anniversary DVD set for Mystery Science Theater 3000.
