AMC Renews "Preacher" for Season 2
TV, Comic Books
Remember what Bryan Fuller said last week about resurrecting Pushing Daisies at Marvel? Well, forget it.
He now says the canceled ABC TV series will see new life at DC Comics as a 12-issue miniseries.
“We got a 12-issue order for a comic book for DC Comics,” Fuller tells E! Online. “I think the comic book is great, because it has all the characters in it, and it starts a new story. It’s basically Chuck, Ned, Emerson and Olive versus 1,000 corpses, so it becomes a zombie movie, but the zombies are articulate and smart and can do things that no other zombies can do. The Pie-Maker versus 1,000 corpses.”
The comic is set to debut this fall. However, attendees at Comic-Con International may receive another giveaway a few months early. (A preview comic was distributed at Comic-Con in 2007, before the show debuted.)
The Emmy-nominated comedy-drama, about a pie-maker who can resurrect the dead (with some limitations), was canceled in November after barely two seasons. The final three episodes will air beginning May 30.
