'The Flash' Movie Loses Director Rick Famuyiwa Over Creative Differences

'The Flash' movie starring Ezra Miller has lost another director. 'Dope's Rick Famuyiwa and Warner Bros. have parted ways over creative differences regarding the vision for the DC Comics adaptation. 

Novice director Seth Grahame-Smith was originally set to direct earlier this year until the studio realized Grahame-Smith had never directed a feature film before and thought a multi-million dollar effects-laden tentpole movie should probably have someone with experience. Thankfully, Famuyiwa signed on to take over and seemed thrilled even reading up on 'Flash' graphic novels.


While the studio had no comment, Famuyiwa issued this statement:

 "When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash, I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor,” Famuyiwa said in a statement…

From the pages of Halloween ComicFest comes Zombie Tramp creator Dan Mendoza and Bryan Seaton's breakout character, Dollface, in her own monthly ongoing, beginning with a special double-sized first issue!

In the town of Boston, a witch-hunter lurks among the shadows, but this witch-hunter is like none you've ever seen. She is Lila, a 17th century soul that has been transported into present time and into the body of a life size, ball jointed doll, created by a couple of MIT students trying to use technology and a 3D printer to create the perfect women. Join in this super-sized debut issue and learn how she came to be known as Dollface, the ball jointed witch hunter.

Creator Dan Mendoza comments, "I'm really excited to be working on Dollface. The book brings its own set of challenges. While firmly set in the Zombie Tramp universe, Dollface will have a much broader audience. There is going to be some crazy over the top elements…

INDIE SPOTLIGHT: 'Geek Girl' #1 by Sam Johnson and Carlos Granda

Created and written by Sam Johnson (The Almighties, Cabra Cini: Voodoo Junkie Hitwoman) and illustrated by Carlos Granda (Grimm Fairy Tales, Charmed), in the 4-issue Geek-Girl Mini-Series we meet attractive, popular Maine college coed Ruby Kaye – a girl who is used to getting anything she wants. But when she overhears the resident college brainiac talking about super-tech glasses he's invented and decides she wants them – her whole world gets turned upside down.

When we're introduced to Ruby, she's a girl flying around in a super-hero costume, looking for crime, chatting to her BFF Summer on her cellphone, questioning if she's 'doing it right;' because she's been at this a couple nights now and nothing's happening. And then something does happen. Right in front of Ruby, Neon Girl – Maine's resident big-shot Super-Heroine – is blasted through a billboard by a mysterious new villain.


“Ass-kicker Neon Girl is taken off the map – and requiring a life-savi…

REVIEW:'Postal' #16 by Bryan Hill, Isaac Goodhart, and K. Michael Russell

★★★★☆ (4/5)
There is a saying that goes "adversity doesn't build character it reveals it." It wouldn't be a safe haven for criminals called Eden if it didn't have its share of adversity. What it reveals in this explosive issue is that Mayor Shiffron has a heart, Maggie is ruthless, and Mark wields more power than he thought. 'Postal' #16 has the ultimate showdown between Eden and the Aryan Brotherhood. Spoiler alert: there will be blood. 
The beauty of this bloody confrontation that's been building in the series between neo-nazis and the guardians of Eden is that it comes to a head in one easy to follow issue. Meaning you didn't have to have read the previous issues (but you should totally do that) to understand what's at stake. As an avid reader of 'Postal,' some things should surprise you but not the precision with which Bryan Hill unfolds the story. 
He takes a familiar set-up to a shootout and is able to develop his characters in deep…
