Django fans listen up! Quentin Tarantino has some good news. Dynamite Entertainment put out a press release announcing that Django will return in comic book form in a joint comic with DC Entertainment.
“I’m very very excited about both this story and the opportunity to work with Matt. It was reading his Zorro stories that convinced me what a good idea it was to join these two icons together. And the story idea we came up with is thrilling, and I think will be an exciting new chapter for both characters.” – Quentin Tarantino
“This project is an absolute thrill,” adds writer Matt Wagner! “When Quentin and I first met, it felt like we’d known each other for years. The give-and-take energy of our initial story sessions was just incredible! It’s a particular buzz to be writing Zorro once again…and especially to team him up with the magnetic lead character from Quentin’s most straight-up heroic movie, Django Unchained! The Wild West is never gonna be the same once these two come to town!”
“This series is the first time Quentin Tarantino explored the continuing adventures of one of the characters from his films,” states Django Producer Reggie Hudlin. “That he would do it in a comic book demonstrates his love and appreciation of the medium. Quentin is not just a comic collector – he’s got a spinner rack in his house!”
“Django Unchained captures the same spirit as Zorro — namely, that the bad guys get what’s coming to them,” says Keith Davidsen, Marketing Manager of Dynamite Entertainment. “We’re a culture that has thrilled to, and thrived on, the swift and brutal justice of the vigilante. In the deft hands of mind-blowing filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and master storyteller Matt Wagner, the explosive comic book pairing of these two Western icons will surely satisfy that most guilty pleasure.”
