    From the pages of the old Vertigo branch of DC Comics. Hoooleee shit.....

    I hope this can come on the screen anywhere near as good as it was written on the page by Garth Ennis. This entire series was unfuckinbelievable. And I really can't believe its gonna be on TV. I hope they don't blow it.

    I read initially it was gonna be on HBO - where no lie they definitely could get away with more of the language and violence and titties. But hey, we will see.

    Stern related cause there was always some cock talk involved in the stories.

    Fuck yeah man. Can't wait. Might be the only thing Seth Rogen is involved in that I give a shit about since he's behind the screen, not in front of it.

    Loved the comic, keeping my fingers crossed but I don't know how they will successfully bring it to TV.

    Pity the poor bastard who plays Herr Starr.

    Based on the IMDB page, I'd guess that the first seasons's big bad is Odin Quincannon.

    That's already a pretty big clue they're playing fast and lose with the storyline from the books. In the books, Quincannon doesn't appear until approximately halfway through the series' run.

    Yeah I've heard they're doing their own thing with the series, which being on AMC, I guess they have to. Probably gonna be shit.

    Interesting. I suppose that sidetrack from the main story is the part most grounded in some kind of reality, though it's not a particularly gripping point for a new audience in my mind.

    Based on the fact that Howard was pushing it this week, it will either suck or be cancelled.

    Have you guys heard Howard's cringe-worthy live commercials for this? "Yeah, I used to read this book, Robin," he claimed. It was quite obvious he had no idea what it was or what it was about.

    Anyway, I have high hopes for this. Early buzz is good too!

    they start advertising these things so far in advance, by the time it's almost on, i don't even look at when.

    I was always amused by Sheriff Root's bottomless pit of frustration.

    Hoping it's at least 1/10 as good as the comic!

    She was on AGENTS of S.H.I.E.L.D last season. She's sexy as hell. Long as she plays Tulip like the way Garth Ennis wrote her, she'll be fine.

    No reason it can't work, I just always read Tulip as quintessential white trash.

    Now that I've seen the cast, everyone is a bit older than I expected as well. I saw Jesse and Tulip as late 20s rather than mid 30s.
