In this issue, The Weinstein Company is developing a Sin City TV series. After Harvey Scissorhands is through with it, it’ll just be ‘City’. THEN Ghost Rider swaps his bike for a car. We assume helmet laws are to blame. PLUS our Kick Ass Pick of the Week, Green Arrow – Quiver by Kevin Smith, Phil Hester and Ande Parks. All this and more after this important message. This is Behind the Panels.
Next Week: Power Girl by Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Amanda Conner
