EPIX Pennyworth The TV series, which will move to HBO Max for its third season in 2022, follows the adventures of a young Alfred Pennyworth long before he became known and loved by Alfred comic book fans, serving as a butler. beloved of Batman. These adventures also continue on the pages of the derivative comic, also titled Pennyworth, but it turns out that you don’t necessarily have to be a TV series expert to enjoy the comics. Writer Scott Bryan Wilson recently told ComicBook.com that he hasn’t really seen the series himself.
Wilson explained that while he wasn’t averse to the comic aligning more with the TV series if that’s what he was asked to do, he wanted to make sure he wasn’t. too influenced by the series either. He wanted Pennyworth comics are their own thing.
“It’s like with anything. There are a lot of things to watch and I just hadn’t taken the time to watch them,” Wilson said. “And then, thinking about the book, I wrote a Altered carbon graphic novel for Dynamite. I had read the book Altered carbon, but I didn’t watch the show. I watched about 10 minutes of the first episode just to see what they did. ”
He continued, “And then with this book, I didn’t want to be visually influenced and I didn’t want it to sound like they sound on TV. I didn’t want it to look like TV show. I just didn’t want it to sound like they sound on TV. not stand still. I was like, this is my book. I just want it to be mine as much as possible. What if the TV people or the editors or the editorial and whoever wants to push it more towards the tv show, then I can do it. But I don’t want to start from that position. I just want it to get as wild as it can on my own, then find out, see if it works, figure it out the from there. ”
Wilson also teased that readers can expect “utter madness” as Pennyworth enters its final issues. Issue four left Alfred near death in the Siberian snow, but there’s apparently a lot more to come in the three remaining issues in the series.
“Well, I’ll say funny enough number five looks really good. It’ll be out in a few weeks,” Wilson said. “Number six sees a character from the Batman universe. It’s not Batman, but it’s a character from the Batman universe, which some readers might be happy to see. And then number seven is utter madness, so I hope readers dig it. ”
