It’s not as good as more TV episodes (or even a feature film, which is probably a pipe dream), but there’s exciting news on The Middleman front! Show creator Javier Grillo-Marxuach has posted that he’s working on
a brand spankin’ new graphic novel bringing together the comic book and tv continuities.
It will be crowdfunded late this year, and “the original series cast has agreed to reunite for a live reading of the script to serve as a crowdfunding premium.” The book will be out next summer, “in time for sdcc 2014.” The artist for the book will be Les McClaine, who drew the original comic. There was previously a “series finale” in comic form called The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse, but McClaine didn’t draw that one.
My goodness, I loved that show. So much fun and excitement and great writing. I didn’t realize how much I’d miss it until it was gone, and it’s still fun turning new viewers onto it. If you miss it, too, then visit the author’s annotation site and rewatch the episodes with more trivia knowledge.
It’s about a lot more than big guns.
