Charles Soule's Letter 44 In Talks To Be A Network TV Series

LETTER44 #1 2ND PRINT - 4x6 COMP FNL WEBYou know I like Letter 44, the new Oni Press book by Charles Soule and Alberto Alburquerque. I talked about it here quite a lot.

It's a comic about a secret conspiracy within the government and NASA that has launched a mission to make first contact with what is believed to be an alien race. The comic is named after the letter one President leaves for the next, and the newly elected President who is brought up to speed with the very secret programme, as they are about to get to their target.

I am anxiously awaiting the second issue.

Well, it seems its not just popular with the comic book readers like me. At least one US TV network is currently negotiating to make a Letter 44 series, with a major show runner and director attached.

Looks like Charles Soule is about to get even busier than he is already…
