Default Potential Hot Comic Tip - Harbinger #1

Comes out today 6.6.12 - Pick one or two up!

Paramount adapting comicbook series into film
Paramount Pictures has acquired rights to turn the Valiant Comics series "Harbinger" into a live-action feature that will be developed as a potential directing vehicle for Brett Ratner.
Alexandra Milchan will produce with Ratner and Jay Stern. The project may be branded under the MTV Films banner.

Created by Jim Shooter, the "Harbinger" comicbook series became a hit when published in the 1990s. Harbingers are humans with powers that can be unlocked by "omega" harbingers. Teenager Pete Stanchek finds himself on a collision course with an older "omega" who used his gifts to become an evil industrialist.

"The movie is in the vein of a young 'Blade Runner,' as this 17-year- old gifted kid helps other kids tap into these parts of their brains," Milchan said.

Ratner, who directed "X-Men: The Last Stand," was looking for an opportunity to start a superhero franchise from scratch. Project will be scripted while Ratner continues work on other directing projects, including "Playboy," the Brian Grazer-produced film about Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner for Universal.

That is old news, from 2008, but if the comic takes off, don't be surprised if we see a movie. Might be a good one to pick up a copy or two.

This was my favorite Valiant title back in the day when Valiant 1st started in the 90's. Man I sold those Harbinger #1's for big bucks back in the day! I know I'm picking up some copies just to reminisce!

I read Harbinger #1 today and really liked it. It actually made me laugh a couple times.
