        • This is great. It's the path they should have taken in the first place! I wasn't too into the illustrated novel, but this seems like a wonderful tool to get across the world of Lantern City.

          And, if Cowboys and Aliens (who faked their sales figures) can get picked up as a Hollywood film, I see no reason this can't help Lantern City get its start on TV.

          • Trevor Crafts sums up the big question of why there isn't a TV Show yet.

            A question I am sure he heard more than once at WonderCon last weekend.

              Yeah, I mean it took JMS a looooong time to sell B5 to networks. He talks about 'other avenues', and I really think things like Netflix and Amazon are the way forward for original content. They will be major players going forward, and I think TV networks will matter less and less.

              • Looney - Aren't they supposed to be at C2E2 soon? If you have a chance, can you make sure that Bruce is still attached to this? There's a fan on FB who's concerned about the lack of mention of Bruce in this interview and afraid that Bruce isn't involved anymore.

                When in doubt...ask!

                • I had the same concern when they stopped calling it Bruce Boxleitner's Lantern City a few months ago, so I asked Trevor Crafts. He says Mr. Boxleitner is still very much involved. To add to that I know that very soon after the first preview image from the comic was released it was on Boxleitner's Facebook page. He is also still listed on the recently revamped website as a Co-Creator.

                  All that being said I don't think he is as involved with the day-to-day goings on of Lantern City as he was back in 2012-13. I think, like all of the people on Team Lantern City have been from time to time, he has become very occupied working and can't pay as much attention to the project as he could a couple of years ago. He is even listed as a speaker at the C2E2 panel this coming weekend, but I think it would be a surprise visit because he isn't listed as an official C2E2 guest and, as has been pointed out, his Cedar Cove show just went into production a few weeks ago (I think they are shooting Season 3). It would be great if he is there this weekend, but I am not holding my breathe. I hope he will be there this weekend because I have more than just Lantern City questions for him, including the fingers-crossed question of whether or not he knows if his Allan Bradley/Tron role will be expanded for the IMDB titled Untitled Tron: Legacy Sequel. If he isn't at C2E2 I will be sure to bring up his name and learn anything new about him and his connection to the project.

                  Now Raphael Sbarge is going to be at the panel. He is one of the names Boxleitner helped recruit to play one of the featured characters, if not the featured character, if the TV show ever finds the financing it needs. I am not overly familiar with his work, but I know his face from many guest shots he's had on shows I've enjoyed so it is a bonus to have him there. Of course, I'd boot him in a second for Bruce and even faster for Mira.

                    Of course as soon as I mention his name there is a change. Raphael Sbarge now says Friday only on the C2E2 guest list, but he still has Saturday Autographing times listed on the C2E2 schedule. I guess if he really is there Saturday he'll be at the Lantern City Panel Saturday night.

                      • Okay so I know I haven't even down a C2E2 update yet, but . . .

                        LANTERN CITY #1 is OUT TODAY ! ! ! !

                        The biggest update from C2E2 2015's Lantern City panel is that things are still moving forward. The comic is out today and they have had lots of meetings and interest in the TV Show lately. Actually the biggest update is that was great to be around Trevor Crafts and Matthew Daley again and that Raphael Sbarge is AWESOME. I mean that guy was definitely a top 5 convention meet for me. So nice, so gracious, and so passionate about getting Lantern City off the ground. I really only knew his face from the many times I've seen him in stuff. Now I am a fan.

                        • OKAY I just finished reading Lantern City #2. I love what this artist is doing and I hope he can keep it up. Thankfully the story is keeping up with the artwork quality. It is very intense. I wouldn't say it is perfect, but I am totally hooked and I can't really predict where it is headed - which is always good. I know there probably aren't any other folks on this forum reading it, but you should be.

                          I just wanted to give a report. I can't believe I have to wait another month for #3!

                          • So I haven't been keeping up the updates because it doesn't seem like too many folks in this community care about Lantern City, but I thought this might be one Issue people would like to pick up just in case Lantern City does finally get picked up as a show. They recently posted this on their Facebook page (which they have been pretty good about keeping up lately.)

                            Mira Furlan's character is making her debut in the next Issue.

                            http://gogeekgirl.com/mira-furlan-ma...antern-city-6/

                            So even if they get a deal and the network doesn't want Mira the comic book character's appearance will always be based on her. The same can be said for Raphael Sbarge's character, who has now appeared in 3 Issues.

                            And updating my personal feelings on Lantern City I have to say that for awhile I was disappointed with it, but then I realized I was making a mistake. Not really being a comic book person I was looking for the detail you find in a novel. Well this comic is definitely more about the ride than the details. And I am still very impressed with the artwork.

                              I hope they include the cover art for each book. I LOVE the artwork in these books.

                                Yeah, I really don't care for comics that much. I want real books, but I do have a few B5 comics. If I break my resolve to not save my money for publishing costs I would go ahead and order at least the ones Martha was in. It's a shame comics were all they've managed to create since it's a terrific universe and they've got wonderful story ideas.

                                And of course, I know some people love comics and think they're the bestest thing ever and think everything should be a comic. Wish I was one of those people. Guess I'm not geeky enough.

                                Also Hiiiiiiii Looney! I usually only visit the B5 forum, so I couldn't have even told you this was still here if I wouldn' have seen your post in the index.
