I’m so happy to report that the story that started out as a novel way back when, then morphed into a web-comic, then a digital comic, and a complete 9-issue storyline has now been optioned to be a movie!
Here are all the details: Film Rights Optioned for Graphic Novel IN MAPS & LEGENDS.
I’m excited to see what the next 30 months hold for this story (12 months for the initial option, 18 for the extension, if needed).
I’d love it if the movie was actually made, but I’m skeptical, of course, just because making a movie is a gigantic undertaking with hundreds of moving parts. And I thought scripting all 192 pages of this comic was a challenge…!
It’s awesome that something I started working on nearly a decade ago has found a new life, and I’m just glad all the heavy lifting — for me — is already done.
Although now I’m already plotting out the next book in the In Maps & Legends series…
