YET ANOTHER COMIC BOOK TV SHOW

08.17.09 8 years ago

NBC will adapt Midnight, Mass. — a series from DC Comics’ generally well-written Vertigo imprint — as a live-action one-hour series.

“Midnight,” which has received a script commitment with penalty from the network, revolves around Adam and Julia Kadmons, a sophisticated, sexy, globe-trotting husband-and-wife team who solve mysteries and crimes of the supernatural. [THR]

Eh, sounds all right.  I’ve never read Midnight but I like most of what I pick up from Vertigo.  Not that that matters.  Whether or not this is good will come down to execution, not source material.  You can take the coolest comic book in the world and it’s gonna suck if you don’t have producers and writers committed to making a decent product.

But I will concede this: if the artwork here accurately depicts the story line, I’m sold.  I’ll watch any TV show where the heroes kill horned monkey monsters.
