Comics: The Final Frontier

Something that has piqued my interest of late is the number of high-profile film / television properties are utilizing the comics medium in order to further their canonical storylines. Two examples that come to mind are Buffy: The Vampire Slayer (which is doing ‘season eight’ of the TV show as a comic book) and Star Trek: The Original Series (which originally ran for three seasons on TV, but will be doing the fourth season as a comic book). I think this is such a great idea, because you can give the fans of those properties more of what they love, but without the mega-bucks that are required to produce a weekly TV show.

Granted we’re doing something similar with our 28 Days Later and The Hills Have Eyes graphic novels, so if you’re a fan of either of those properties you’ll definitely want to check ‘em out!
