Tarantino Crashes Watchmen Panel To Announce Django Unchained Comics

Posted by July 14, 2012 Comment

I was in the Hall H panel for Django Unchained so I didn’t witness this Django Unchained news piece myself. There’s irony for you.

Quentin Tarantino went straight from here to DC’s Watchmen-focused panel to make a surprise announcement. There’s going to be a Django Unchained comic from DC coming along before the film.

Its five issue run is to adapt Tarantino’s original draft of the screenplay, so it’s going to provide some kind of parallel interpretation.

How can I not buy this thing?

 

Mark adds a few tidbits from DC’s twitter feed and panel livestream:

DC Entertainment taps Quentin Tarantino for Django Unchained for 5 issue miniseries to coincide with film release.

Django Unchained takes the movie’s story and tells it as a comic book says Tarantino, with story aspects that aren’t in the movie. #SDCC

“The comic will literally be the entire movie’s script.” – Tarantino at ‪#SDCC‬

Video on this announcement coming soon.
