Director Morgan Spurlock (Viking porn name: ORGAN SPURCOCK!) will be adapting his 2004 documentary Supersize Me into… a graphic novel?
The book, “Supersized: Strange Tales From a Fast Food Culture,” will feature bizarre stories about the U.S.’s obsession with fast food that weren’t seen in the film while still hoping to make a point about health and nutrition. Spurlock will write the stories, with a mix of established and up-and-coming artists scripting and drawing the book. It is set for publication in the spring.
Spurlock said after his movie was released that he was inundated by calls from people who wanted to share their tales from the fast-food underbelly, including the story of a fat man whose cremation made a mortuary smell like French fries and the man that built in his garage a museum of McDonald’s food that never aged.

You think the fast-food underbelly is bad, you should see its muffin top, or fupa. But seriously, you really think you can get an “eating healthy” message to the people who really need to hear it by using a comic book?
…Crap, that actually makes complete sense. (more fun pics below)
