Guy Ritchie's GAMEKEEPER at Warner Bros


Looks like I now have not one but two comics-to-movies in development at Warner Bros. If only they were creator-owned...

From Variety:

Guy Ritchie plans to direct a film version of his Virgin Comics series "The Gamekeeper" at Warner Bros., with Joel Silver set to produce.

Deal marks the first original Virgin Comics property to move into development as a feature.

Project revolves around the reclusive caretaker of a Scottish estate with infinite knowledge of the behaviors of all animal species. When the alleged killer of his son surfaces, the caretaker finds that Europe's urban jungle is not so unlike that of the natural landscape to which he's accustomed.

Concept was created by Ritchie, but Andy Diggle handles the writing duties.

"After reading Guy's comics, we knew instantly that the action-packed story and complex characters would resonate with film audiences," said Warner Bros. production prexy Jeff Robinov.

Meanwhile our first GAMEKEEPER graphic novel collection is due out in October.

HELLBLAZER # 234 Printing Error

I've just found out that page 21 of HELLBLAZER # 234 was printed with the speech balloons missing. Which'll probably make it, like, incredibly rare and collectible, or something.

It'll be corrected for the trade, but in the meantime, you can click the link below to see the corrected page...

But first, BE THOU WARNED! This page features a MASSIVE SPOILER - so don't click unless you've already read the issue!

If you're cool with that, click here to see the corrected page.

HELLBLAZER # 234 Sneak Peek


Click here for a six-page sneak preview of HELLBLAZER # 234, on sale Wednesday.

It's the first chapter of a chav-tastic four-issue story entitled JOYRIDE, written by myself, with interiors by Leonardo Manco and covers by Lee Bermejo.

In other news, HELLBLAZER sales seem to be rising for the first time in a while. Baby steps, to be sure, but at least we're heading in the right direction...
