The Middle Man

June 5, 2008

One of my favorite indie comics, The Middle Man, is getting turned into a TV show!

The comic is a hilarious sort of tongue in cheek, anything goes- kind of pulp story, where you have martial arts masters against armies of luchadores. My fear is that the tv series is going to cross over from funny to twitchy, which is a hard line to walk. The tendency of Hollywood to turn “everything is silly” to “these OTHER people are silly” has me sketched out. Plus, some of the occassional raunchy humor I expect to completely evaporate with ABC family.

Oh, well, we’ll see.
