I’ve been sitting on this for some time, but now it’s time to share some big news regarding my demon-meets-gangster graphic novel, The Damned!
Showtime has put a series into development based on the book. It will be written by feature writer David Hayter who has co-penned several big-screen comic book adaptations – X-Men, X2 and Watchmen. The show is being described as a modern adaptation of the comic. It will revolve around Eddie, a cursed man, who is stuck in the middle of a turf war in modern day Chicago where mobsters are demons. Eddie must play all the angles to keep the warring families at bay while trying to reclaim his soul.
I’ve been privy to some of what is planned for the series, and I gotta tell ya, it is gonna be awesome!

While you’re at it, now would be a great time to ask your local comic shop or bookstore to order the book for you… or you can order it here.
