The hit thriller series Rogues’ Gallery by writer Hannah Rose May and artist Justin Mason was recently picked up in a competitive situation for adaptation. Don Cheadle‘s This Radicle Act won out optioning the series. The plan is to adapt it for television. May will serve as an EP and will be producing the series through her Weird Neighbour Productions banner alongside Cheadle, Karyn Smith-Forge and This Radicle Act.
For those who have missed out, the series will be collected into trade paperback this December. Rogues’ Gallery, Vol. 1 will collect issues #1-4 of the series and be available from Image Comics just in time for the holidays.
The series is perhaps best described as The Purge meets Scream. It is a pulse-pounding story that follows disenfranchised TV superhero actress Maisie Wade as she is terrorized by an unhinged group of intruders cosplaying her day job’s arch-villains. If Maisie is going to survive the night, she’ll need to be the hero she has come to despise.
Rogues’ Gallery, Vol. 1 (ISBN: 9781534324503, Diamond Code OCT220060) will be available at local comic book shops on Wednesday, December 7 and Independent Bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Indigo, and Waterstones on Tuesday, December 13.
