Comic book projects that don't warrant a thread yet

Preacher was very different to the books, but as it went along they were trying to bring it closer and cram in as much book stuff as they could. American Gods season One was really good, other than that it covered much less of the overall story than people were expecting it to. But season two was much less impressive, and apparently season 3 is going to be a huge shitshow. They fired the guy who plays Mr Nancy! They fired THIS GUY:

First of all, are those Preacher and American Gods shows any good?  Is it just retelling the books?  I've just never heard anything about either of them positive or negative.  Second,  there's a fucking Bloodshot movie?  What the fuck.  I even liked both the old and new Bloodshot series.  Matter o' fact I love most of that old Valiant shit.  Now more than then.  Geomancer sucks tho'.

 

Preacher was good. American Gods was good though I have little faith in S3 right now.

I'm trying to watch Locke & Key but I swear, every time the kid who plays Bode opens his mouth, I hear Vincent Adultman.  It's...really distracting.

If that ruins his part for anyone else, I'm not sorry, because this oddity has to be spread around as much as possible.

Bloodshot was quite the generic superhero action movie. Sketchy CGI, mediocre performances, lots of "cool" slow-mo shots, Diesel once again demonstrating his best work is done in voice over, and Guy Pearce as another underwhelming quasi-supervillain. So yeah...not a great start to the Valiant Cinematic Universe, although it's still  better than the Mummy.

Supposedly Netflix wants to buy the rights to the Valiant line so they can have their own cinematic universe. 

Well they can't fuck it up worse than Sony did.

Meanwhile, I am starting to suspect that the Invincible cartoon is never coming out.

Tom Hiddleston and Ben Wheatley still say that they are working on an adaptation of Frank Miller / Geoff Darrow's Hard Boiled, but I am not sure if I believe them.

I've been waiting on Y: The Last Man adaptation for years. Even when Shia Labeouff was attached to it and it was a film adaptation.

As for this tv adaptation...I don't know.  FX has done some good work, but...I don't know. There are a ton of variables in the comic that could go wrong in this format.  

Even if it sucks or not my cup of tea, I do hope the show is popular. Maybe get an updated book release.  At least popular enough to earn its own thread on DVDVR.

A series based on Matt Wagner's Grendel comic is in development.  The first season will focus on the "original" Grendel, Hunter Rose, and run eight episodes.

Not sure how interested I am in a Grendel series in 2021, but I'm happy that Wagner is (hopefully) finally cashing in.  I was a big fan of Wagner in the 80's and 90's and still really like Mage and the Madame Xanadu book he wrote for DC.
