‘POWERS’ Comic Book In Development As FX Series – BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS Heavily Involved

January 25, 2010

Cover To 'POWERS' #1


Source: PremiumHollywood.com

FX’s President and General Manager, John Landgraf, has confirmed that a ‘POWERS’ pilot is in the works and that POWERS creator BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS is heavily involved. Also: Bendis’s collaborator is KEVIN FALLS who is best known for his work on JOURNEYMAN.

Read more HERE.

POWERS was a great ride during the dozen or so issues I picked up. Told from the perspective of two detectives who try to get to the bottom of the crime scenes they get called in to solve – which always involve super heroes. POWERS – if it stays true to the comic book and focuses on story and some mature themes – should annihilate HEROES.
