Stabbity Bunny Goes on Hiatus Due to Health Issues

Richard Rivera

Scout Comics & Entertainment has announced that their hit series, Stabbity Bunny, has been put on hiatus due to the serious health problems of writer/creator Richard Rivera.  As a result, Scout plans to cancel and re-solicit Stabbity Bunny issues #9 through #12 once they are fully completed by Richard and his team. Due to the uncertainty of Richard’s health, a realistic timetable for this is not available at this time.    

Richard’s upcoming titles, Stabbity Ever After and Shadow Play, will NOT be affected by this since the majority of both books have already been completed.

We wish Richard and his family nothing but the best and a speedy recovery.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Aquaman/Justice League: Drowned Earth #1 (DC Comics) – The mini-event crossover between Justice League and Aquaman has been fun in that disaster film sort of way and we’re excited to see how it wraps up because it feels like there’s a lot of ground to cover with just one issue.

Dead Man Logan #1 (Marvel) – Logan is dying… again. But, you know what? When the issue is this good we’re good with it. A solid start to this epic event.

Hellboy and the BPRD 1956 #1 (Dark Horse) – A new Hellboy adventure? Yeah, we’re in. Especially as we wait for the new film.

Heroes in Crisis #3 (DC Comics) – Who did it!? We want to know and this series has us sucked in to see how the mystery plays out.

Hex Wives #2 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – An exploration of the patriarchy with witches… yeah, we’re sold. The first issue was great, we’re expecting the same with the second.

Ironheart #1 (Marvel) – The first issue is a lot of fun as RiRi takes the spotlight and begins to stand out from under various shadows. A fantastic first issue that’s perfect for new readers and long time fans.

Marvel Action: Spider-Man #1 (IDW Publishing/Marvel) – Marvel goes all-ages through IDW?! Marvel has been farming out various aspects of their comics and the latest has us intrigued.

Monarchs #1 (Scout Comics) – Four young geniuses are tasked with discovering and instituting an ideal method of leadership to make a utopian society that the inhabitants wish to create. Um, sold.

Old Lady Harley #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue caught us off guard as to how much fun it was. So, we’re expecting more of that with the second.

Quincredible #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – Quinton, a high school sophomore, is looking to live his best life by moonlighting as a superhero. The catch? His power is invulnerability . . . and that’s the only power he has. Sounds interesting to us!

The Warning #1 (Image Comics) – An extraterrestrial threat emerges and must be stopped. We’re always game for good sci-fi action.

Don Handfield, James Haick III, and Scout Comics’ The Mall in Development for TV by Ivan Reitman’s Montecito Pictures

Ivan Reitman’s Montecito Pictures has picked up Don Handfield and James Haick III’s critically acclaimed comic series The Mall, published by Scout Comics. Handfield, the co-creator of History Channel’s Knightfall will adapt for the small screen through his Motor Television banner.

Set in the golden age of kiosks, arcades and food courts,The Mall tells the story of three teenagers — the QUARTERBACK, the PRINCESS and the GEEK, who all find out they’re related when their real father, a mid-level crime boss, dies and leaves them each a store inside the local mall. The catch is, the stores are fronts for the mob, and the teens must decide whether to break bad or go legit, all while trying to navigate the high stakes John Hughes type drama that is high school in the 1980s. Finding a date for the prom is one thing, doing it with the Columbian drug cartel out to kill you is another.

Handfield’s first comic series The Rift was also optioned for television and his upcoming new comic series The Source, also from Scout Comics, co-created with Joshua Malkin launches at New York Comic-Con 2018 with a limited edition glow-in-the-dark variant cover.

Haick is the creator of another successful ongoing Scout series Solar Flare, about mankind’s quest to survive after a x-class solar flare wipes out the world’s electrical infrastructure, along with the upcoming Long Live Pro Wrestling series.
