Comic Countdown #72: Image Entertainment

Posted on June 2, 2013 AT 06:55pm

It’s time again for the Comic Countdown! With news of an Image Comics film documenting the creation of the company, as well as several series bring talked about for either television adaptations or a full-length film (not counting the already super popular adaptation of The Walking Dead), it seems like a good time to take a look at a few titles from Image Comics that could also be making the leap.

#10: The Darkness

A Top Cow Productions series, The Darkness has already been adapted into two decently popular video games. This long running series is reaching its end soon, and a television series would make this expansive universe even bigger, allowing for more stories to be told in the life of Jackie Estacado and crew. Might also be a way to get a Witchblade series off the ground, using crossovers and guest appearances.

#9: Revival

Another zombie-like title, Revival focuses on some of the dead from a rural Wisconsin town that have come back to life. Not as the brain eating zombies, but as regular people who just so happened to come back to life. This could work as another Walking Dead type of series, and Image Comics would benefit from having another high profile title.

#8: Bedlam

A major horror story about a  serial killer trying to live his life after becoming a reformed member of society would really make for an interesting film or limited television run. This likely wouldn’t work long term, but some kind of mini-series might give this series some major exposure.

#7: Hoax Hunters

A comic book about a fake myth-busting television show could make for a multilayer fake reality show full of ghosts and other odd supernatural myths. A show about a comic about a show could really work if presented in the right way, making it not look fake while being a complete fiction the entire time.

#6: Green Wake

This is a very, very messed up title that would likely never get any type of extra push given its cancellation, but this would be a very interesting animated series/limited television run. Like American Horror Story, this series would be a strange and terrifying ride that would likely leave those who watched it with a major mental shake-up.

#5: Morning Glories

The story about six children who have some major secrets and a whole lot of issues would be a pretty interested young adult series if it were adapted properly. While it deals with some pretty taboo topics, if handled with care this could be a way to introduce younger non-comics readers to a popular title that has some mature themes but could still be viable for a pretty interesting adaptation.

#4: Invincible

In what is likely the second most popular Image title, an off the wall animated superhero movie would be a lot of fun using the crew from Invincible. While it would be an adult themed animated film, there could be a lot of interesting events that could be handled from the comic book series that could be put into a new media. While it’s unlikely this will happen, bringing the world ofInvincible to another art form would be very interesting.

#3: Fatale

This series features some incredible stories, a lot of time jumps and an incredible female lead. Josephine  and some of the other “fatales” that have been introduced have been the focus on this noir-like title, and with a television push this could be a really interesting tale of espionage and mystery.

#2: Mind The Gap

This would work best as a limited/ongoing television series, but the story of Elle Peterssen and her attack is something that could easily be explored through a soap-opera style mini-series. With a lot of mystery, some theatrics and some major supernatural elements, this could be a terrific story to further explore in another medium.

#1: Saga

No idea where this would be aired, but the story of Saga is so unique, so interesting and so utterly insane that it couldn’t help but be placed into some other medium. This space-operaRomeo & Juliet like story is something that has to be seen to be believed. Whether it be a film, television show, or some other form, this is a series that is something else entirely and would be amazing in another form.

That’s it for this week! Be sure to check back in next Sunday for another edition of the Comic Countdown!
