Nonplayer Comic Getting the Movie Treatment!
Yes, there has only been One Issue printed for this comic from the publisher Image. Yes, it is that damn good that it deserves a movie treatment. NO, there is no second issue (of six) so far in sight, which I just had confirmed by Image themselves who tipped me to this movie news.
Variety is reporting that the Nate Simpson written and drawn comic has been picked up by Warner Brothers with producers Roy Lee (“The Ring”) and David Heyman (the “Harry Potter” series) taking the helm so far.
If you have no idea what comic I’m talking about, you are incredibly missing out on a truly original piece of art. Yes, it’s art, everything about it is beautifully done. As my Interview with Nate, and Review of the first issue should have prove to you that this comic is going to be something that is really amazing.

Nate Simpson was the recipient of the 2011 Russ Manning Promising Newcomer Award (commonly referred to as The Manning Award) as part of the 2011 Eisner Awards held Friday, July 22nd, as part of Comic-Con International: San Diego, North America’s largest comic book and popular arts convention.
He’s got everything going for him right now. Come on Nate finish the second issue!
