In college, the comic that made me interested in comics was Y: The Last Man. I had never read anything like it. I didn’t know comics could be anything other than superhero stories, and certainly nothing as compelling and addictive as what writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Pia Guerra cooked up. Later that freshman year, my roommate handed me Preacher, and I was once again blown away (although not to the same extent as Y). Over ten years later it’s interesting to see how these two properties have moved through various attempts at being adapted with Preacher finally moving towards being a television series and Y: The Last Man still stuck in development hell after years of trying to turn it into a movie.
Steve recently interviewed producers Evan Goldberg and James Weaver at the press day for their new movie Neighbors, and during their conversation, they talked about adapting comic books into television series versus movies. Hit the jump for what they had to say, and click here for Goldberg and Weaver going in depth for what they have planned for Preacher.
