It's less than a week untolComic-ConInternational in San Diego continues and Comics2Film is here withanother tip for producers who will be heading down to the show lookingfor the next coolness.
Today we hear from veterancomics scribe Ben Raab about his new book, "Living in Infamy".
Q: Describe "Living in Infamy"in two sentences or less.
On the surface,"Living In Infamy" is about a Federal Witness ProtectionProgram for reformed super-villains. But really it's a series aboutthe secrets people hide from their friends and families and how thosesecrets can come back to haunt you when you least expect it?
Q: If you were to compare"Living in Infamy" to a movie or TV show what would it be?
As a TV series, it's"'Desperate' Supervillains". As a movie, it's "The Incredibles"meets "Goodfellas".
Q: Why do you think"Living in Infamy" would translate to film/TV/animation?
We've approached the book likean hour-long TV drama. The characters aren't moustache twirling baddies intights trying to dominate theworld. They're simply ordinary people with extraordinary -- ifsomewhat chequered -- pasts looking for a new lease on life.Unfortunately, as they're about to discover, you can't always get whatyou want...
