I don’t want these last-minute entries to become a habit, but it was worth waiting until the end of the day for this one. I just got home from the first production meeting for Soon I Will Be Invincible, the musical adaptation of the book by Austin Grossman for which I am writing the script. Two hours of me and some brilliant, talented nerds sittin’ around, talking about how to put a comic book on stage. We looked at artwork from every era, we looked at costume imagery from cosplay to high fashion to actual military gear. Did you know you can make replica scale armor out of plastic spoons?
Obviously I don’t want to give anything away – not that there’s anything to give yet. It was just the first meeting. There will be several more before any actual designs start appearing. But holy crap was it exciting.
