Django is set to take comic book outlets by storm while he crosses paths with the iconic masked swordsman Zorro in a brand new comic book. “Mage” and “Grendel” series mastermind Matt Wagner will be teaming up with Quentin Tarantino to bring to life Zoro and Django’s new adventures. The 2012 movie “Django Unchained” was first adapted into a graphic novel in 2013 based on the original script by Tarantino. “Django Unchained” scribe and producer Reginald Hudlin is hired to assist the duo as the editor for the upcoming graphic novel.
Tarantino said in a statement:
“I’m very very excited about both this story and the opportunity to work with Matt,”
“It was reading his Zorro stories that convinced me what a good idea it was to join these two icons together. And the story idea we came up with is thrilling, and I think will be an exciting new chapter for both characters.”
The novel is due later this year via Dynamite and DC Entertainment.
