A month before the first issue is published and Sony Pictures has already acquired the film rights to Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen’s upcoming Image comic Descender. Lemire is the creator of the acclaimed graphic novels Sweet Tooth and Essex County as well as having written for Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and Valiant. Nguyen has worked on American Vampire, Batman Eternal, Batman: Streets of Gotham, Detective Comics, and Batman: Li’l Gotham, which now has its own line of toys designed by the artist..

“It was a competitive situation for Descender, and we are thrilled that it ended with Sony Pictures acquiring the series,” said Lemire and Nguyen. “We know that their film translation will do justice to the original comics, and we are thrilled with their belief in the franchise potential.”

A sprawling, science-fiction space opera full of mystery and adventure, Descender is a rip-roaring, heart-felt cosmic odyssey about a little boy looking for home in a universe that hates and fears him. The incredibly lifelike artificial boy, TIM-21, may hold the secrets deep in his machine DNA to the origin of robots that have decimated entire planets. As a result, he is the most-wanted robot in the universe. Before long the entire galaxy is looking for TIM-21 and his rag-tag group of unlikely companions, as they make their way from one exotic planet to the next with new foes advancing on them at every turn.

The first issue of Descender will be released on March 4, 2015.

Now, as part 3 in the “Toxic Television” series, I’m covering the shows we love.  You’ll see there are many more great shows than there are toxic shows, so that’s reassuring in the grand scheme of things, for sure! Continue reading
