Make sure you pick up Disciples #1 from Black Mask Studios this Wednesday. First, it is being done by Steve Niles and Christopher Mitton. The book will be a mix of horror and sci-fi. But the main reason to keep this on your radar is it is being developed for TV by Wes Craven.
The Disciples is a new comic book series written by Niles and drawn by Christopher Mitten that merges sci-fi with horror. It is being published in May from Niles’ Black Mask Studios.
In addition to directing iconic horror films like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, The Hills Have Eyes and The Last House on The Left, Craven has also produced a TV series called Nightmare Café that ran for a single season in the ‘90s. Craven is also attached to the Scream TV series for MTV.
Outside of his 30 Days of Night comics, Niles is best known for Criminal Macabre, Simon Dark, Mystery Society and Remains, which was made into a TV movie back in 2011 on Chiller.
The Disciples doesn’t currently have a network attached to it, but given that USP is owned by NBC/Universal, Syfy and USA would probably have the inside track to pick up The Disciples .
TFAW has already sold out of issue 1 & 2 in advance of release. Mycomicshop hasnt posted theirs yet, so keep an eye out on their listing for Disciples #1
