My Name Is Earl: The comic book

my name is earlYes, My Name is Earl is getting its own comic book. Oni Press announced it yesterday ahead of Comic-Con. Earl staff writer and script coordinator Hunter Covington is taking on the project. Oni says he's a comics fanatic and he also wrote possibly the best episode last year, The Bountyhunter, starring Juliette Lewis.

So, comic book fans... would you buy a comic of Earl working to cross other things off his list?

Who knows? I'll certainly look at the previews. Turning a film or a TV show into a comic book can work, CSI and Serenity being notable examples...

As a huge fan of "Earl", I say "NO!".

As a comic book fan, I'm sure I'm in the minority when I say that I'm sick of comic books being turned into films, and vice versa, I'm non-plussed by the idea of any film or TV show being turned into a comic book.

Not only do these practices stink of crass commercialism, but it's artistically lazy.

And the end result is more often than not a disappointment.
