Locke & Key's Joe Hill is overseeing a new "pop-up" line of DC horror comics
Author Joe Hill is probably feeling a tad bit focused on the world of television at the moment—his horror bestseller NOS4A2, about a vampire who owns a car, having just been turned into a new series by AMC.

U.S. Navy SEAL charged with war crimes had confidence of his immediate superior
The immediate superior of a Navy SEAL standing trial charged with murdering a helpless Iraqi prisoner and shooting unarmed civilians testified on Wednesday he had complete confidence in the defendant's combat tactics and decision-making. Master Chief Petty Officer Brian Alazzawi, the first defense witness called to the stand in the trial of Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher, also described how one of the main accusers in the case had seemed to harbor a grudge against Gallagher. Gallagher, a decorated career combat veteran, has denied all charges and says he is wrongly accused.

Witness could face perjury charge in Navy SEAL court-martial
A Navy SEAL witness could face a perjury charge after testifying that he — and not Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher— had killed a young Islamic State prisoner in Iraq, according to an email sent to a lawyer for the witness. Officials are considering charging Special Operator First Class Corey Scott with lying under oath during Gallagher's court-martial, said the email sent Tuesday by Navy Capt. Donald King, a lawyer for the senior commander who convened the war crimes proceedings. Scott "testified directly contrary to previous official statements — thus exposing him to prosecution," the email said.

Latest sex accusation against Trump lands with a thud
Nearly a week after the latest sexual misconduct accusation against President Donald Trump, the story has largely landed with a thud. Some see the muted response to author E. Jean Carroll's allegation of Trump assaulting her in a department store dressing room more than two decades ago as yet another example of the divisive Politics of Trump: Those who support him dismiss it as fake news. "Essentially, you're either for him or against him, and if you're for him, it doesn't matter what he's done," said Larry Sabato, who directs the University of Virginia's Center for Politics.

NRA shuts down production at TV channel amid leadership coup attempt and legal troubles
The National Rifle Association has shut down production at NRA TV.The NRA on Tuesday also severed all business with its estranged advertising firm, Ackerman McQueen, which operates NRA TV, the NRA's live broadcasting media arm, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The New York Times.While NRA TV may continue to air past content, its live broadcasting will end and its on-air personalities - Ackerman employees who included Dana Loesch — will no longer be the public faces of the NRA.It remained unclear whether the NRA might try to hire some of those employees, but there was no indication it was negotiating to do so.The move comes amid a flurry of lawsuits between the NRA and Ackerman, and increasing acrimony that surfaced after two prominent NRA board members first criticised NRA TV in an article in The Times in March. The separation had become inevitable: The two sides said last month that they were ending their three-decade-plus partnership."Many members expressed concern about the messaging on NRA TV becoming too far removed from our core mission: defending the Second Amendment," Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's longtime chief executive, wrote in a message to members that was expected to be sent out by Wednesday."So, after careful consideration, I am announcing that starting today, we are undergoing a significant change in our communications strategy. We are no longer airing ‘live TV' programming."In a notice to Ackerman's chief executive, Revan McQueen, sent
