Dead of Night at Comic Con "09"

Hey everyone,

Back with a quick update. A good friend of mine - Brian Altounian is the CFO of Platinum Studios and co-producer on a little film called "Dead of Night" starring Brandon Routh.

The film is based upon the adventures of supernatural private eye, Dylan Dog, who seeks out the monsters of the Louisiana bayou in his signature red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans.

Awesome comic and without a doubt this is going to be an awesome movie!

If you are planning a trip to the con this year, make sure to stop by their booth and say hello. I believe there will be a panel Q&A with the stars of the film as well as a preview.


Just making sure we take care of my people...

Below is the latest press statement regarding the project:
