After just one issue, the Jeff Lemire and Scott Snyder book released late last month AD: After Death, has been picked up by Sony for development into a feature film.
AD: After Death first appeared that Image Plus #5 as a preview. Another early appearance came out in the form of copies of a ashcan style magazine preview handed out at Baltimore Comic Con’s Diamond Retailer Summit and later made available for sale at the convention. AD: After Death is a magazine sized comic that switches between panels and single page art with text pieces.
The first issue of AD: After Death can still be found for sale online for less than cover price.

Sony has picked up the film rights to A.D.: After Death, a buzzy comic book miniseries from two of the industry’s leading creators, Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire.
Josh Bratman is attached to produce the adaptation. Snyder and Lemire will serve as executive producers.
The comic, whose first issue just hit stores in November, is set in a future where a genetic cure for death has changed society and centers on a man frustrated by his never-ending life.
The A.D. deal reunites Lemire with Sony, which in 2015 picked up his sci-fi comic Descender. Bratman, whose credits include Priest and 2011’s Fright Night remake, is also producing that adaptation as well.
