OK, I was way off. Series only started the April before last and is ongoing. Apparently the film was optioned before the first issue even hit. Which is a good sign I guess. I don't know. Still, there doesn't seem to have been any where near the sort of collaboration that occurred with Pilgrim.

Also, did I put Kick-Ass on my 2010 list? Because I should have. I forget. Also, now we're talking about it so much, I'm pretty sure Pilgrim should have been much higher on that list too... like #2 high, just behind Malick. That and Kick-Ass are pretty far and away the two really mainstream film releases this year I'm anticipating above all others.

I'm hoping Kick-Ass turns into a kickass cult franchise. Matthew Vaughn.

See I'm the exact opposite. I get your logic, but I just can't read novels after having seen the movie, it ruins it for me, you picture the actors as the characters and the filmmaker's visual instead of your imagination and then you nitpick the novel. As much of a film-lover as I am, I'd rather pick the film apart for its differences than the book.

What's so bad about that? You have some great film programming there with the Smithsonian and the AFI Silver.

I probably prefer the volumes in this order:

5
1
3
2
4

But it's really splitting hairs. Volume 1 is a favorite because I just love the courtship between Scott and Ramona. And Knives Chau only continues to become more hilarious as the books go on. But she's an essential part of the first volume.

I love Edgar Wright, but the more I read, the more I'm enjoying the quirky art and think it'd make a fun animated series.

I can't imagine an animated version being any more artfully successful than the drawn books, so I'm kind of glad it's getting the live action treatment, honestly

True, I'm excited to see what becomes of it, I just meant as a motion-picture depiction of it, it'd be fun in animated form, not that it'd greatly add to the experience.

It certainly would be fun, but perhaps gratuitous.

It will be a shame if Volume 6 doesn't release sooner rather than later. Volume 5 ends on such a down note, and a not-quite-cliff-hanger, but ends with the most heightened sense of non-resolution/climax-tease of any point in the series. It's been tearing me apart for a long time now. You might want to pace the reading out a while until we find out the release date for the last issue, just as a bit of advice. At least hold out on reading Volume 5 until then. You'll be glad you did.
