I read a fair amount of comics. I wouldn't call it a full-blown hobby, but I can hold my own in most shops, so when I find something I haven't yet read being made into a movie, it's a good day. This is one such day, Gordon and the Whalers. It looks as though RUNAWAYS, the popular Marvel series, is being drafted for a live action adaptation. Who is being honored with the first whack at it? It's in the next paragraph! READ QUICKER!

Deadline is telling us that Drew Pearce, creator of the hilarious British satiric superhero TV show, No Heroics, has been asked to take the project on and he has accepted. Do yourself a favor and YouTube a trailer for the show. I've been a fan for a while and can vouch for how good of a choice this is for the comic.

RUNAWAYS, or so my other comic book friends tell me, follows a broken team of super teens who attempt to use their evil powers for good. Each member comes from a family built on crime, dark magic, or other dark doings. The team includes the usuals: a telepathic, a witch, a great thinker, a few aliens, a raptor. Did I not mention that? Yeah, they have a pet raptor.

Is it the most original concept in the world? Probably not. Does it sound like fun? You bet. Director of NICK AND NORA'S INFINITE PLAYLIST Pete Sollett is set to direct. More details as soon as they arrive.
