Revolution Returns in Comic Book from DC Comics

RevolutionFor fans that have been wondering if they’d ever see what happens next on Revolution, now that the series has come to an end after just two seasons, you’re about to get the answers you’re looking for. Even if it’s not the format that you would have liked, it definitely is something.

Here’s a message from Revolution creator and executive producer Eric Kripke to fans:

Dear Revolutionaries, Patriots, and Soldiers of the Monroe Militia,

So first of all—thank you. Seriously. Sincerely. The loyalty you’ve shown REVOLUTION these past months has been touching and overwhelming—it’s meant more to me than you’ll ever know. And in case you were wondering—yes, we’ve been listening. We’ve read the tweets. We’ve seen the incredible petition. We’ve followed #RelocateRevolution. Please know that you’ve been heard.

And solely because of your efforts, we wanted to pay you back—to give you something fantastic. And while, unfortunately, we simply can’t make more episodes of the show (alas, there are financial realities we can’t overcome), we can do the next best thing. Which is end the story. On our terms. Exactly the way we would have.

Revolution Comic Writer's RoomSo J.J. [Abrams], Jon [Favreau] and I are pleased and proud to announce the REVOLUTION endgame: a four-issue series coming soon from DC Comics. If you take a look at the attached photo, you’ll see that we brought back the entire writing staff to work on it. The band’s back together! (And if you study the photo closely, you’ll notice a certain young, plucky Matheson who also joined us). Everyone has generously agreed to work for little or no money. They’re doing it, because like you, they’re passionate about this story and want to see it end correctly.

So stay tuned. We’ve got lots of work to do. We’ll keep you posted—in the coming months, you can expect more details, sneak peeks, and early artwork. But Miles, Monroe, Rachel, Charlie, Aaron, Neville and the rest will return for the epic finale to the REVOLUTION storyline. We hope you’re as excited as we are.

And again—thank you. This is because of you. This is for you.

Much love,
Kripke

Abrams uses Movies and TV to spread Social Good

J.J. Abrams - Mashable Social GoodJ.J. Abrams spoke at Mashable’s Social Good Summit via Skype on Monday, revealing that there is more to his movies and television shows than just keeping you on the edge of your seat.  While this is something that we’ve always known, we didn’t really know about the social good that came along.

“If we have a story we want to tell and can also make a change — that’s great,” Abrams said. “Five U.N. specialists spent time with our writers, and they really helped deepen our story lines and make the challenges even bigger: How do you prevent disease? What is life really like in a refugee camp? The whole notion of warlords is gonna be an issue in the series this year.”

Abrams’ team also met with people that are currently, or have, lived without electricity. “People with real-life experiences helped enormously to give the series a grounding in reality.”

Abrams also created a spin-off of his production company Bad Robot, to help with the social good effort.  It’s called Good Robot.
