Well here's one I missed in my offline time: Astro City is wrapping up as a monthly book and is being seriously attempted as a TV show
. Of all of the "modern"? "Retro"? -whatever - comics out there Astro City
is my favorite and has been for a while. A decent take on it would make a great show.
Between this and the word that Wild Cards is also in development as a show from a year or two back there are two super-universes that I really like making their way into new channels. Cool!
