After hearing that Sex Criminals is going to be adapted for TV, we picked 10 more Image titles that should be adapted next. Books that (as of now) already have deals in the works are disqualified such as: Wytches, Chew, Five Ghosts, Pax Romana, Descender, Lazarus & Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth. Now on to our picks!
#10. Wicked+The Divine:
“There are enough mysterious and interesting gods in this series to not only sustain but thrive as a weekly television show. Each episode could spotlight a different god, with constant building of mystery and crossover between all the stories. I think with a Lost-ish formula, Wicked and Divine could be a compelling drama. The key to a big ensemble cast with multiple story lines is a strong leading character that holds it all together. Wicked and Divine passes the test and would make for a great show.”
Back in November I started a new segment called Image #1’s where I wrote a progress report on some of the new series Image had to offer that month. I plan on making this a monthly segment. When reviewing all the new Image series of December there was only one I wanted to write about. Instead of writing a December progress report on one book I put together a top ten list of the best #1 issues Image had to offer in 2013. This list is only based on issue #1 of the series. The unique aspect of #1 issues is that for the most part you do not know what to expect. You enter the book open minded and it either hooks you or it doesn’t. Image put out 54 #1 issues in 2013, more than one new series every week. This top ten list provides a wide range of books from comedies to horrors. I think Image’s slogan should be “Something for everyone” because that is exactly what they have to offer. Enjoy 2013’s top ten best beginnings from Image. If you are wondering what the December book was I deemed worthy to write about check out #9.
