    Ass-kicking priests comic The Order coming to the big screen | Blastr

    Vatican priests with a penchant for the paranormal may be coming to a theater near you soon, as the graphic novel The Order has officially been optioned for a movie deal.


    Developed by Arcana/Benderspink, the comic is based around an elite team brought together by the Vatican to "travel the world and combat supernatural forces." If there were ever a premise destined to become an awesome film, that'd be it.

    Producer Scott Stuber (Ted) is locked in once his schedule clears, and the team behind the comic will also be involved with the development of the storyline and script.

    It's definitely a cool premise, and could work almost like a mix between Constantine and ABC's short-lived TV series Miracles, with a little more crazy action thrown in for good measure.
    or like Vampires...anyone remember that? Pretty entertaining little flick.

    Comixology is offering 20 #1's from Image as free downloads. Fatale, Saga, and Mind the Gap are some of the ones I was interested in checking out.

I've had to intentionally avoid them.

    Just ordered the first TRANSMETROPOLITAN tpb.
    Awesome! The first one is just three issues, unless the changed that with the new print run, and it's not the book at it's best, but hopefully it'll be enough to pique your interest.

    The friend who got me interested in comics is almost strictly a Marvel guy, but I find that much too limiting. Unfortunately, it also means he can't help me all that much when it comes to recommendations, which is why I summoned up the courage to venture into this thread. All of you seem quite knowledgeable and have a diverse taste akin to my own when I noticed Preacher and 100 Bullets mentioned in this thread, just to name a few.

    So my apologies in advance for my ignorance at times, but give a girl a break, I'm new at this! Hopefully, given some more time, I can contribute more to this thread rather than just lurking about.
    Welcome! Seriously, anything we can do to help!

    Ok, seriously, Image today is putting out a metric **** ton of great comics. Original, creative and impressive stuff. The exact opposite of what's happening at the Big 2 these days. On that page alone I'm reading and recommend:

    Fatale
    Prophet (best sci-fi comic ever????)
    Glory
    Saga
    The Manhattan Projects
    Secret
    Mind The Gap
    Planetoid

    The others I'm waiting to read in trade. Seriously, give them a try if you do the e-comic thing at all.

    Dredd Movie And Sequels Chat – Alex Garland Answers The Fans | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    If I was involved in a second movie, it would be about origins and subversion, and Chopper would feature. In fact, I think Chopper would start and end the story. Apart from him, my rough plan involves Fargo, Giant, Angel Gang, and a version of Satanus. For a trilogy, add Cal and the Dark Judges. And Anderson would be in all three. But… just to be clear, this is hugely speculative and also unlikely, for any number of reasons… There are some variables which would rule me out [of any sequel] immediately.

    I think I’d try to make [the Dark Judges] really scary. Not play them for laughs. Just make them totally malevolent and lethal. And use practical effects where possible, except for Fire, which would be an on-set nightmare.

    The existential side to the Dark Judges is that they don’t see a point to life. If my film-trilogy daydream was to play out, I would completely rewrite my original script for the Dark Judges – because it was junk – and start again.

    If there is a sequel, I’m imagining spending about half the movie in the Cursed Earth, and I would try to come up with some new faces as well as some old ones… I quite like the idea of Satanus. But much more mutated.

    But by the way, just so it has been said, I actually think that maybe the best way forward for Dredd is television. American TV has completely rewritten the rule book where filmed drama is concerned. Game Of Thrones/The Wire/Breaking Bad… An equivalent version of Dredd would be ****ing great. Imagine the epics…

    This one is for Adgy...you seem to be the only forward thinking chap who has been reading THE BOYS...ok, so I am re-reading...and SO many things make more sense. The biggest revelation may be when Black Noir gave Wee Hughie the 'thumbs up' @ Herogasm. And Butcher and Hughies constant(and tiresome) philisophical debates...wow, Ennis lays some goddamned pipe don't he????? If you have the TPBS I recommend re-reading because a lot of stuff is making horrible sense now.I am soooooo gonna miss this book.
