Who cleans up after the Hulk Rampages the city? Who fixes potholes where Thor’s hammer falls? That would be Marvel Comic’s Damage Control. Now they are getting their own tv show.
Deadline.com mentioned earlier that Damage Control would be coming to tv as a half hour super-hero comedy show.
Sometimes the most important super heroes are the ones behind the scene. Marvel Television is heading to the half-hour live-action comedy arena with Damage Control, a single-camera comedy project based on the Marvel Comics books, which has received a put pilot commitment from ABC.
Developed for TV by former Daily Show and Colbert Report executive producer Ben Karlin, Damage Control follows the overworked, underpaid, clean up crew of the Marvel Universe. Specializing in dealing with the aftermath of the unique fallout from superhero conflicts, they’re the ones who are in charge of returning lost ray guns to their rightful owners, help to reschedule a wedding venue after it has been vaporized in a superhero battle, or even track down a missing prize African parrot that’s been turned to stone or goo.
There are a few Marvel Comics Presents #19 on eBay, Mycomicshop.com has some for under $4. Copies of the Damage Control #1 1st series (half Spiderman face pointing with his thumb backwards) is as cheap as $1.25 on eBay and $3 on Mycomicshop.
Also, raid your local back issue bins for this sure to be $1 bin issue.
Thanks to K. Watson for the heads up.
