    • Check it out. It’s one of the best comics out there and much more interesting and intricate than that synopsis makes it sound. Also, they mispronounced Rucka

  1. Well that didn’t tell me shit….. a lot of talking with very little actual information.
    I guess WatchMojo is more concerned with quantity over quality…. got to get out those 3 videos a day for the revenue stream, no matter what. Fuck whether it’s good or not, that has nothing to do with it.


  2. I don’t know how I feel about “the boys” being adapted it was a great series but not sure how well it’ll translate. I mean I was jazzed when “wanted” got adapted then I watched it it was awful nothing like the comic. I hope “the boys” gets a better treatment

  3. I just started reading Luther Strode: The Complete Series and I can totally see that becoming a three part movie.
