Fictional Frontiers with Sohaib
Live Talk about the Worlds of Comic Books, Film, and Popular Culture
Delanco, NJ (May 22, 2008) – Is Guillermo Del Toro really the best candidate to film Tolkien’s The Hobbit? Do you believe the ongoing Batman titles are well written, or the product of creative mismanagement? Why is the movie industry seemingly dying? Are the writers of Lost making up the story as they move along? Are we seeing a golden era of animation with respect to Pixar’s efforts?
If you bandy about these questions with your friends and family than Fictional Frontiers with Sohaib is the program for you. Launching June 8, 2008 on WNJC 1360AM Radio – Philadelphia, Fictional Frontiers is a live one-hour journey through the comic/novel, film, and television universes. Seeking caller opinions, host Sohaib Awan will engage listeners in one-on-one debates and discussions. In addition, Fictional Frontiers will tap into its reservoir of industry guests for insights into upcoming trends and projects. Fictional Frontiers will cover:
