    Default Great news!

    How will this affect the books that were scheduled for release later this summer? I was really looking forward to more of this character and I'd hate to wind up waiting for a movie release.

    I will go see the movie, no doubt at all.

    Congrats to Brubaker; Incognito was an interesting take on a superhero origin story (which is what it was, you realize at the end).

    I'm glad. This could translate well to the screen without being watered down or mucked with. I hope Brubaker and Phillips make a millions dollars off it.

    What a coincidence! I just finished reading the mini. Thought it was great and some of Phillips best work.
    Does anyone know about a sequel series?

    If you read Criminal series you would know Brubaker said they will be making a sequal to Incognito along with the next Criminal story.

    I love Brubaker and Phillips stuff. Incogneto was a giant pulp love letter in the vein of Sleeper. It'd make an amazing film. Here's hoping all goes well.
