"After discussing his steampunk alt-history series Leviathan at Comic-Con over the weekend, Westerfeld turned to his previous series, Uglies, set in a future where all teenagers have extreme plastic surgery at age 16 to become "pretty." Westerfeld announced that Del Rey will be publishing four manga-inspired Uglies graphic novels, outlined by Westerfeld, written by Devin Grayson (who created the Vertigo series USER and had a long stretch writing Nightwing, among other Batfamily titles), with art by artist Steven Cumming. Westerfeld says that he was inspired to tell this new story from the perspective of Shay ó Tally's sometimes friend and sometimes nemesis ó because so many readers accused Shay of simply being a "bitch," and he wanted to explore the other other side of the Tally-Shay story. The first volume is due out in May 2012."

Updating with pretty (but not Pretty) art!

Scott says: "Note that this is untoned, and has no speech bubbles yet (they were spoilery!) but it does show you the fiery enthusiasm that is CROY. Heís the dude in panels 1, 2, and 4. And you can tell that he is CROY.

The girl with pig-tails is obviously Shay, the girl with shorter hair is Astrid, and the white-haired dude is Zane.

Wait, isnít Zaneís hair pitch black?

Ah, but donít forget, they are all still uglies at this point! (Heh.)
"

I enjoy that Shay has not two, but THREE PONYTAILS.

Post by: shadley on August 25, 2011, 08:05:40 AM
SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!! I must buy the graphic novel when it comes out. Now I'm guessing this Uglies manga is actually from the B.T. period(before Tally). Mostly cause it is from shay's POV and it has Croy, Shay, Astrid, and Zane all together. You guys probably already figured this, for some reason though ,at first, I thought it would just be a retelling of the original story.

Post by: charis-rableau on October 02, 2011, 05:35:24 PM
It's not really the author's job to promote auditions. :/ Depending, they often hold the first rounds with or without the author knowing. When they get more serious, then they might ask the author for opinions. 
Title: Re: UGLIES MOVIE (Producers, Screen Writers, And Special Effects!) + MANGA NEWS
Post by: shadley on October 03, 2011, 04:31:18 AM
I'm not saying he would promote it, but the author's usually at least know about the auditions. I mean Suzanne Collins ATTENDED the auditions for the big roles. Either way most productions at least notify the author of auditions and Scott would tell us if he had new info.

They NEED to have open auditions and tell us about them! This would be the only movie I could really be in because I'm not celebrity-pretty, so I could be an ugly

Do you remember what they had you read?

Could be that maybe they just wanted to cast the extras? r just scout for hidden talent? They usually do that.
Title: Re: UGLIES MOVIE (Producers, Screen Writers, And Special Effects!) + MANGA NEWS
Post by: shadley on October 04, 2011, 02:18:58 PM
^^ that could be possible. But I would think they would find the main characters before the extras.

It isn't possible for there to be auditions yet, they have no director. If I was you I would never be in contact with them again they sound super creepy Broken, random's claiming they are casting a movie that does not have a director, seems pretty dodgy. Be careful!! :[

IMDb needs to be updated, there is no way the movie will be released in 2012 now :P I wish, but unfortunately, no way. Unless they have super powers, xD

I can't. I'm emotionally crippled. The only things my mind can handle doing are showering, cooking/eating, and passing the days 'til I die. I look at it this way, everything has a price. I don't want to live; but apparently other people want me breathing. So in exchange for my company I never have to work or go to school because if people really had a problem with all that euthanasia would be legal for depressed people. I can't handle the stresses and pressures of 'real' life. And I don't want to. I'd still rather be dead, but as I can't make that happen I'm going to live on my own terms.

Sorry if that's depressing or whatnot, that's just the reason I'm not getting it.

Not cool, a few years ago you would have been classifiable as a high schooler. It's an AGE and it doesn't define who you are.

On some websites, it says the Uglies manga will only have 3 books, but the Westerfeld says on http://io9.com/5824311/plastic-surgery-dystopia-novel-uglies-becomes-a-manga-and-a-movie that Del Rey will create 4 books of 200 pages. Which is it--3 or 4 manga books?

So u don't think Westerfeld's forum website about the Uglies movie is that reliable anymore because it's like 2 years old?

A month or two ago Scott tweeted me that we should hear news on it "soon".

Where on Westerfeld's blog did he say that? When he talked about the movie on July 25, 2011?

If it happens, it'll be after Mockingjay comes out. Then everyone will be lookin' for the next "big teen book movie".

YES! On my local library site, they recommend Uglies for Hunger Games fans, and Amazon connects the two as well. So if this happens, it might be! And then this forum will get twice as big and make all the people on here who like Uglies and think Leviathan is stealing it's thunder very happy... (I don't, BTW. They're both awesome)

I never thought of Leviathan as stealing Uglies' thunder, most people I know know more about Uglies than Leviathan or read Uglies before Leviathan.

Some people on the forum definitely do. I read Leviathan first, and Uglies soon after that and I'm completely obsessed with both of them... but some people definitely read Uglies first, like it better, and are kind of frustrated by the number of people who've read Levi and not Uglies.

It's can't really steal Uglies thunder, they're 2 completely different types of books.

Yeah, I think so too. But I see their point with people saying they're fans of Scott when they've only read Leviathan... that makes them a Leviathan fan. I don't think it really has, either, and it's introduced Uglies to several people as well.

See? There you go. To quote a shirt I saw someone wearing once, "I disagree, but I respect your opinion." I think they're both awesome, but I can see your point.

True, I just meant that Leviathan is more of a niche title, to a niche fanbase. Yes, it's a big fanbase, but the general category of Dystopia that Uglies falls under gives it more exposure than Levi receives. Levi does have the steampunk category to help it, but that hasn't quite picked up as much popularity as Dystopian yet.

Yeah. And Hunger Games definitely gave a huge boost to dystopian novels.

^^EXACTLY, what I was thinking of. Now there is going to be Divergent, Maze Runner, etc. movies to continue the Dystopian dominance of the book world.

Like how vampire romance novels were this huge thing cuz of Twilight, except dystopias are broader and, generally, more interesting.

Yep, and Harry Potter kind of started the whole new book-to-movie craze way back when for this generation.
