Benderspink Gets Drafted
Mark Powers’ critically acclaimed sci-fi epic Drafted has been optioned by Benderspink Productions for development as a tentpole feature. Powers, along with co-creator and publisher of the original Drafted comic, Josh Blaylock arranged the agreement just as plans were slated for the series to return to comic books through Devil’s Due Entertainment in 2015.
Drafted tells the story Earth’s first contact with extraterrestrials – a benevolent species that, unfortunately, arrives only to warn us of an impending invasion from another race. Therefore, they declare that every man, woman and child on Earth must be conscripted into the battle to save our mutual existance, whether we like it or not.
Powers and Blaylock will be working closely with Benderspink in developing the project, while simultaneously overseeing the project’s return to comic book shelves.
