Coming at the end of the year in the creator-owned slot in the Megazine:
It’s been around for a while, but it’s finally seeing publication as a comic.
Pat Mills, creator of 2000AD and developer of Judge Dredd has teamed with artist Clint Langley for a new monthly series to run in Judge Dredd Megazine.
American Reaper starts from October 12th, and it’s a sci-fi police procedural with future cops taking down illegal identity transplanters, letting the elderly digitally possess the bodies of the young, amid calls for those on Death Row to donate their bodies to the cause.
The comic has already been optioned as a movie by Xingu Films, who made Moon.
Down The Tubes has more information on the film and funding for the story:
Xingu says the film version of American Reaper was brought to them as a short pitch from Pat with some sample art from Clint. “Immediately captivated by the exciting premise, and the exceptional track record of the creative team involved, Xingu came on board not only to commission a screenplay, but also to raise the financing for the graphic novel itself. A departure for our company, but another sign of our flexibility when it comes to how best to get the stories we believe in made.”
