As promised, here is part two of two, of our Rejected Comic Book ideas. I've often thought that Preacher would make an excellent animated series in the vein of Spawn or some of the more adult-themed animes out there. Of course a high budget live action TV series would be even better, I just don't think anybody is really willing to put any money behind the idea. Supposedly, HBO has the live action show in development, but we haven't even heard of any casting rumors for over a year. Unless I'm seriously behind in nerd news, I'd basically consider the project dead.
For those who haven't read Preacher, it's completely gross, disturbing and probalby not really appropriate for anybody. That being said, the story is original, compelling and a hell of a lot of fun. It's a lot like The Boys, except instead of just being a vehicle for Garth Ennis' disturbed grudge against superheroes, it actually has characters you care about and a story that is simply one of the best there is.
I am 99.9% sure we'll do some rejected comic book ideas again (since we have a bunch of ideas we didn't use), but for now we'll take a break before the idea gets overused.
