'Some Guy' recently uploaded a professional-looking trailer for the Fox pilot 'Locke and Key,' and the two-minute Vimeo trailer is more intriguing than many full-blown drama pilots for the new season (yes, 'Grimm,' I'm looking at you). Sadly, 'Locke and Key,' which is based on an acclaimed graphic novel series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, was not picked by Fox for the new season.
I was able to see the full pilot for the project at Comic-Con, and it was a bittersweet experience -- as a fan of the graphic novels, I thought the director, Mark Romanek, and writer, 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' scribe Josh Friedman, did an especially sensitive and intelligent job of adapting this eerie haunted house tale. It was a drag to contemplate that this compelling project didn't get picked up to series.
It's about time! Let's give the blood suckers a break and revisit some good ol' brain eaters, shall we?
A long time ago, on an Internet far, far, away, the creators of the NBC series Heroes decided that a weekly webcomic series would coincide perfectly with the show they were producing. I mean, Heroes is about superheroes. So, during the first season of the show, a different artist penned a short webcomic (about five pages long) that focused on the background of one of the characters, or introduced a new character not seen on the television show. Eventually, all 34 chapters of this webcomic were collected and sold as a graphic novel. All was good in the galaxy.
Spike has ordered five episodes of Afro Samurai. They begin airing January 4th.
The comic is available as a downloadable PDF, or an interactive Flash version. While the story is short, and the Nissan ad a little tedious, it is a beautiful high resolution comic. And an interesting bit of TV related trivia for you... One of the people behind the comic is Michael Turner, the co-creator of Witchblade, which you may remember from its short live-action run on TNT. It also features Crossing Jordan writer Aron Coleite.
Along with the comic, the Heroes site also has a nice collection of interviews with the cast and crew. Sections for games and downloads are reportedly coming soon.
