The all CGI Beowulf movie is set to land in theaters November 16, 2007, and IDW Publishing is prepping its adaptation of the ancient story for a weekly release.

The comic book series will be released weekly throughout October, delivering a month-long celebration of the November 16 big-screen release.
Writer Chris Ryall, who is also IDW Publishing’s publisher and editor-in-chief; artist Gabriel Rodriguez; and colorist Jay Fotos-the creative team who also adapted author Clive Barker’s The Great and Secret Show for IDW Publishing and George Romero’s Land of the Dead-adapted the story directly from the screenplay written by Roger Avary, who co-wrote Pulp Fiction and Neil Gaiman, author of the award-winning comic series The Sandman and the novel Stardust, which was adapted for the big screen this year. The weekly issues will also feature back-up material such as a reprinting of the original poem and text pieces that explore Beowulf’s influence on other comics and movies.
