Wanted - Teaser Movie Poster

Wanted Comic Book Issue #1 CoverWanted, a new movie based on the comic book mini-series of the same name created by writer Mark Millar and artist J.G. Jones, “tells the tale of one apathetic nobody’s transformation into an unparalleled enforce of justice. In 2008, the world will be introduced to a hero for a new generation: Wesley Gibson.” (link) Wanted is a highly regarded, creator owned comic book that many have compared to the classic Watchmen comic book series with its adult themes and unique take on super heroes. Even though the book had a short run, Wanted has had a lasting impact in comics since its debut in 2003. Jones’ artwork in particular is amazing and his comic book covers are some of the best in the business.

Look for Wanted in theaters this summer on June 27th, 2008. If you’re interested in reading the trade paperback of Wanted, which includes all six issues of the comic, you can do so here.
