Genkaku Picasso by Usamaru Furuya
New series that started in the October 2010 issue of Shonen Jump about an amateur artist nicknamed "Picasso," haunted by a tiny dead Chiaki Yamamoto, a fellow student who was the only member of his "Riverside Club" which met for the purpose of drawing water. Suddenly his drawings have the ability to see into the depths of other people's actions and dilemmas.
Halle Berry Catwoman
Generally reviled feature film that re-invents Catwoman in a way distant from the comic book character and the various renditions of the character by Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether from the TV series. Meaning: the director came up with something new and no one liked it, including Halle Berry who ultimately called the film a 'piece of shit."
Frazer Irving Batman
The final issue of Grant Morrison's run on the DC Comics' Batman and Robin series (issue #16) has the work of three different artists telling the story. See this Frazer Irving Batman page enlarged here.

Frank Miller: "Holy Terror, Batman!" is now just "Holy Terror!"
Profile piece at the Los Angeles Times about Miller and his long-simmering 122-page Batman Vs. Al Qaeda graphic novel which is now sans Batman, sans DC Comics, and nearing completion without a publisher determined yet.
Besides that, Miller has a prequel of "300" coming out from Dark Horse. The tale will concentrate on Xerxes and his rise to power and eventual intent to conquer the defiant Greeks (and Spartans), and is already in the Hollywood run-around with Director Zack Snyder and writer Kurt Johnstad involved.
