Look, that right there is one hell of a headline to have to write. But in a world where DC Comics is giving us all sorts of weird Hanna-Barbera series—from profane cyberpunk Scooby Doo, to post-modern Flintstones, to sci-fi spy-fi in Future Quest—I guess the thought of Garth Ennis writing a Wacky Races spin-off isn’t …
You probably didn’t realize it, but if you sat down to watch a Seth Rogen movie in the past several years, you were making Preacher possible. He and writing/directing partner Evan Goldberg have been trying to bring Garth Ennis’ acclaimed comic to life for nearly a decade. This Sunday, all their persistence finally…
When AMC announced it was making a Preacher TV show, fans were equally elated and worried. The comic series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon is considered an all-time classic, but everyone thought it was nigh-impossible to adapt. And that’s what the show’s executive producer believed, too.
It’s a sad fact that, in fiction, characters occasionally have to speak. That speech can be stilted, boring, and utilitarian, or it can be something that the readers look forward to. There are ways of making it the latter, and we’ll look at authors who have mastered them.
In the article about crossovers of the Dark Age of DC Comics, I wrote a bit about Hitman, one of the only good things to come out of the Bloodlines crossover. And now I want to write a bit more, because Hitman is just so good, it deserves its own article.
The wondrously grim and epically bloody comic book series Preacher, is filming a pilot for AMC. Hell yes.
Those people jonesing for the original, non-Dr. Octopus-inhabited Spider-Man will have a good day tomorrow, as The Amazing Spider-Man #700.1 hits comic store shelves tomorrow. It's set before the switch, so it's not technically in modern continuity, but at least Peter Parker will be webslinging across New York City in…
It appears that Seth Rogen may be involved in the rumored Preacher adaptation. Following reports that AMC has ordered a Preacher pilot, Rogen tweeted, "I may get to bring one of my favourite stories to life...Arseface. John Wayne, The Saint of Killers."
What is going to fill the television-viewing hole left by Breaking Bad? It may very well be a TV adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's foul-mouthed, blasphemous, supernatural road comic Preacher.
Animator Luis Pelayo Junquera has taken one of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's most poignant Punisher tales — "Do Not Fall In New York City" — and transformed it into a dream-like short movie. This story sees Frank Castle not going up against his usual coterie of mafiosos, but a troubled soldier he knew from the…
What comics are in stores tomorrow? Among the new books on the stands are Michael Avon Oeming and Brian Michael Bendis' kids' series Takio ("Taki and Olivia are sisters with superpowers! In fact, they are the only ones in the world with superpowers! So obviously, they have to become superheroes!") and Garth Ennis and…
We've all seen the predictions — both fictional and pseudoarcheological — that the world will end in 2012. But while some of science fiction's predictions for the year 2012 are apocalyptic, some are merely disastrous — and a few are downright upbeat. Let's see what triumphs and tribulations science fiction says we can…
Last night at Comic-Con, we saw the premiere of comics writer Garth Ennis's first short film. Stitched follows a group of NATO soldiers in Afghanistan as they vie with strange, seemingly unkillable monsters that aren't quite like any zombies we've seen before.
Garth Ennis the sick-minded comic writer who brought us Preacher, is making a short film, and we're absolutely horrified by what it might contain. He's mashed up modern warfare and zombies, and this could get bloody. Check it out!
Anchorman director Adam McKay is already running down his shortlist of actor hopefuls for his live-adaptation of the ultra-violent comic The Boys. Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's comic follows a superpowered CIA group charged with keeping idiotic superheroes in line.
Preacher, Garth Ennis' ultra violent comic about a Texas preacher who travels the US searching for God and only finds horror, junkie vampires, and insanity, is getting made into a movie by Disturbia's DJ Caruso. How is this possible?
We are in awe. The Pro is easily top of the list of the world's most disturbing, vulgar, and radically awesome comic books. Which is why we love that Garth Ennis' work was turned into a NSFW cartoon. VERY NSFW.
The one and only Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, JLA: A Midsummer's Nightmare) sent us a ton of concept art and sketches from his superhuman shit-kicker series, The Boys. Check out early designs for the team and Darick's commentary about the art!
The Garth Ennis-Steve Dillion comic — about a man of the cloth, his ex-assassin girlfriend, and their Irish vampire bud — got a shot of class when Sam Mendes signed on to direct. That was nice while it lasted.
Columbia's live-action adaptation of the Garth Ennis' The Boys is getting quite the rep. First Nightmare's Sam Bayer wants the director gig, and now Rob Corddry wants in. In truth Corddry would make an awesome cokehead/dick superhero.
