Legendary Pictures Comes To Comics

Box-office hit production company Legendary Pictures (which produced such titles as The Dark Knight, 300 and Watchmen) is about to try their hand at comic book production! They will begin marketing graphic novels in 2011 and become Legendary Comics. But will the comics be stuff made of legends, or is this just another company looking to make another quick buck?

To show they mean business, the company will also be adding a “legendary” (too cheesy?) veteran editor as their new editor-in-chief, Bob Shreck, who has previously been the editor for DC, IDW, Dark Horse and Oni Press.

The company is planning on releasing four to six graphic novels per year that could be the material used for the makings of movies and TV series. As of late they have not been announced, but it is suggested that the many people Schreck (Frank Miller, Neil Gaimen) are a good sign that Legendary Pictures will be producing some high-profile works in the near future.
