Django Freeman, the hero of Quentin Tarantino, has already appeared in comics via an adaptation of the full screenplay. Now the bounty hunter is returning to the medium in an incredibly random pairing with another memorable character. Dynamite Entertainment is teaming with DC Entertainment to publish Django/Zorro. Yes, it’s that Zorro, the legendary swordsman who first appeared in pulp magazines in 1919. Tarantino will co-write the script with Reginald Hudlin (who co-produced Django Unchained) and Matt Wagner, creator of the acclaimed comic series Mage and Grendel. The comic pairing of Django and Zorro is scheduled to his shelves in late 2014. I usually wait to check out comics in trade paperback, but I might have to at least pick up the first issue to read this delightful-sounding madness.
