Legendary Pictures Launches Legendary Comics

Legendary Pictures has launched a comic book branch with Legendary Comics.  Veteran comic book editor Bob Schreck will head the company, which will “look to bring the newly-created comic-based IP produced by the venture to other entertainment platforms such as film and television.”  The inaugural project will be released within the first half of 2011, but what makes all of this news very exciting to me is that Neil Gaiman (Sandman), Max Brooks (World War Z), and Frank Miller (300) have already attached themselves to the company.  Given the amount of talent involved, I’m going to be expecting some great things from the Legendary Comics brand.  Hit the jump to check out the full press release.

Legendary Pictures is, in my opinion, one of the best studios out there.  The studio has helped produce some of the coolest, geekiest, and riskiest high budget films for the past couple of years.  Some of their past films include Inception, The Dark Knight, Watchmen, Where the Wild Things Are, Trick r’ Treat, and 300.  They’re also currently developing some exciting upcoming geek friendly projects with Sam Raimi’s World of Warcraft, The Dark Knight Rises, a reboot of Godzilla, an adaptation of Mass Effect, and Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot Superman: The Man of Steel.
