Comic-Con is officially here and so are a lot more exciting projects on the horizon. Unfortunately with the actors and writer’s strike still in its heat, the participation wasn’t eventful and exciting as compared to the previous year. Star sightings were for obvious reasons on the low. But Jamie Lee Curtis was one of the few stars who made their yearly homage to comic con. And this time she came not as a star but as a writer- a comic writer.
The Horror Queen officially announced her new comic book at Comic-Con to a fully packed room. True to her popularity, her comic book “Mother Nature” is soaked in horror but this time she is also using a very relevant topic of our time, the environment as her story base.
Mother Nature which she has co-written with Russell Goldman and illustrated by Karl Stevens, tells the story of Nova Terrel, a young environmentalist who stumbles upon a big corporate Oil extraction company in her hometown in New Mexico and how it leads to awakening horrors in her hometown.
Jamie Lee Curtis is also bringing the Navajo elements and folklore to her comic book and she says that to justify Navajo culture she has taken guidance from experts including renowned author Brian Young.
While she teased that she would not only like to see it get a screen adaptation but might as well, produce, direct and even star in it, we would like to see the groundwork for the same being done.
So are you excited for Mother Nature? Or you would probably be interested if it gets its screen variant.
