Matt Hawkins Informally Announces Postal In Development For TV #InStoreKickOff #ConKickOff2016

2016-03-05 (26)We've mentioned this before. But at the Instore Convention Kick-Off, streaming to comic stores across the land, Matt Hawkins said he wasn't formally announcing this. But his comic book Postal from Top Cow about a place where, despite its inhabitants, no crime is allowed and local postman and Asperer's sufferer Mark Shiffron sees a town struggling to keep its fragile peace, is being developed as a television series right now… "which means really nothing… it might happen someday. I'm nt as good as the bullsh*t spin as some people."

Talking of which, hee also talked about getting the Darkness and Witchblade movie rights back "after the latest debacle" with The Darkness having been optioned continuously for seventeen years and have made lots of money for Top Cow not making movies.

And on a previous guest's underlining of continuity at the publisher, "The problem with continuity is that you shackle the best writers with what the worst writers did"…

Handbag!
