The action-adventure story is set in motion when an ancient idol is unearthed and transported to a zoo in the U.S. There, the idol’s spirit awakens and starts to mutate the caged animals. A group of teenagers must band together to try to stop the idol and the evil from destroying the world. The graphic novel will be published in May from Image Comics.
The move will be produced by Sam Raimi and Josh Donen.
What really amazes me is the huge amount of money being exchanged for a single comic property these days. Sources claim this deal is in the seven figure range. Seven figures – that’s at least a million dollars right there for a comic that won’t hit stands until May. To put things into more perspective, creator Doug TenNapel did score $1,000,000 for Tommysaurus Rex a few years ago.
