New creator for animated comic, maybe

Updated 12/27, 8pm Per the comments below, Chynna might be a writer or artist for the series, not only a writer.



Rich Johnston's Lying in the Gutters this week has alleged "green-light" news on a writer creator for the upcoming comic series based on the animated series:
CHYANNA OF SUPERHEROES

One of my fave comic creators, Chynna Clugston writes in her blog that she's working on a new upcoming Legion Of Superheroes series based on the cartoon, which she refers to as "Legion Animated."

As Scott at the Legion Clubhouse notes,
But there is no mention of this on her blog. Perhaps she was asked to remove it or maybe Rich imbibed a few too many eggnogs over the holiday.

We already knew that J. Torres and Scott Beatty will also be writing the comic.

It's possible, since Clugston uses livejournal, that the post was for friends only or something like that.

Michael, I too thought immediately that she might be a writer but Johnston says only creator. And Clugston is an artist so she might be working that side of the book. I tried to be careful in my post not to say either writer or artist as she could be either.

D'oh! You're right, nowhere in there does it say "writer", that was an assumption on my part. I saw the "Queen Bee" book with her name on it and thought it was a novel.

Further down, it shows the solicitation for a Teen Titans Go! comic with her as the artist. It refers to her as "indie comics superstar Chynna Clugston".

If Rich Johnston is in your friends list, there's no such thing as a friends-only post. :) And Chynna probably knows that by now....

Actually found out she did mention the Legion job. Here and here in her comments on the Titans job she mentions working on the Legion. Just doesn't say whether it is the art or the writing.

She also mentions it on her ComicSpace page.
