WOO HOO. I don’t think I’ve talked about my love for Matt Wagner’s Mage: The Hero Discovered and Mage: The Hero Defined on the blog before, but damn, it’s an amazing pair of stories that reinvisions legends like King Arthur and many more, puts them in modern society and lets them fight magic. It’s awesome. So, as you might expect, I was pretty excited this morning when CBR told me that the guy who produced Watchmen, The Rocketeer and other geeky flicks Lloyd Levin (sounds like either a Stan Lee creation or someone who should be in Superman’s life) picked up the rights to the first book. Wagner’s quoted basically saying that previous movie people wanted to change the material, but now they want to stick with the source. Sounds good to me. I actually just got the hardcover version of Discovered a few months back in a Swap that I haven’t read yet, but this might spur me on to read them both again. Good news!
