Pushing Daisies comic ‘will hopefully be out in early 2011′

Pushing Daisies

In one of his round-up posts where he answers questions about TV shows, Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello shares some news on the Pushing Daisies comic straight from series creator Brian Fuller:

“Issue number 1 will hopefully be out in early 2011, issue number 2 is being colored as we speak, and issue number 3 is being written,” Fuller said. “Our Emmy-award-winning composer Jim Dooley and I have been talking about giving the audience a multimedia experience with the comic—specifically a score. We have no idea whether we can actually afford to do an actual Pushing Daisies comic soundtrack (because the cast has agreed to sing songs and those licensing fees are expensive), but Jim has already started composing musical cues that we will either release officially or stream for freesies online when the comic book is published. I’ve already heard the track for Lee Pace’s cover ditty and it’s fantastic.”

Fuller began talking about the possibility of a Pushing Daisies comic not long after ABC canceled the quirky show about a pie maker who could bring the dead back to life. He said the comic will tie up loose ends left by Pushing Daisies‘ demise as the characters deal with a flash flood that empties bodies from a nearby cemetery. Previous reports also have said the book will run 12 issues and will be published by DC Comics.

I had almost lost hope that this would happen. While I’ll miss the wonderful performances of all the actors, it will be nice to have the plot threads tied up, and the soundtrack sounds like an awesome idea.

I completly forgot this was gonna happen. Such a great show…and such a hottie in Chuck. *sigh*

Love Pushing Daisies. Maybe if the comic sells well enough it’ll be put back on the air like it deserves! One can always dream, right?

Still disappointed it got cancelled. And that Tim Sale isn’t doing the comic…I wish Fuller never said his name.

this is brilliant news! I totally hope they get the soundtrack going!

AWESOOOOOME! I’ve been waiting for this. You have no idea how many times a week I wonder when the heck this comic is coming out. Pushing Daisies might be my most favorite show ever. Every episode was gold. I’m expecting every issue to be the same.

One word to say: YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!

HOORAY!

This is one of the best series ive ever seen, i was heartbroken when they were cancelled, i like the idea of the comics, but ill miss the series so much :( , why do people cancel breaking Tv shows, and still allow Crap shows to go on and on and on… Originality is doomed in this world :S

Hello, i`m also a huge fan of Pushing Daisies, I`ve got the 2nd season in 2010 and i was waiting for watching it, I`ve finally did it, and i miss the series so badly i can hardly breath, the notice about the comic it`s also heartbreaking and a little hopeful, I wish they`ve never canceled the serie! Good! -the same happened to DEad like me, at least they`ve made a movie. Oh, how i wish Pushing Daisies had a movie instead of a comic book : /
Cheers for all ya´ Pushing Daisies fans :D
Greetings from Mexico! :)
