    I'm in no way interested in the movie since I don't care for the series, but this is really great to see happening. I love how indie books like this can find such a huge following without tons of marketing or relying on big companies to back them.

    Also it looks a lot like Kung Fu Hustle.

    I'm in every way looking forward to this -- the book was a very unique indie book and it appears from the previews that the movie has it's own unique feel. I just worry that it may be too unique and may not draw in a wide audience, but hey, they made a COMIC BOOK MOVIE and amongst comic movies that's a rarity. This looks like it's a comic come to life in every way. Good on Edgar and crew!

    i think this is going to find a good chunk of the mainstream audience. i've talked to plenty of friends who are really excited to see it who've never read the comic, and a few who didn't even KNOW it was a comic. and everyone i know who's seen it (i, sadly, do not rank among them) has thought it was unequivocally awesome. so i'm not too worried.

    Just went to a screening the movie is very fun/awesome, Kieran Culkin completely stole the show and Jason Schwartzman is always good fun.

    I saw a screening yesterday as well and I really liked it! Maintains the balance of the comics and the extended cast is great with a great sense of invention by the director. Is there a general movie thread here yet?
