Writer Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), has found his next project. He is set to launch a comic book series titled Nowhere Man, through Liquid Comics. The story takes place "500 years in the future, where an oppressive government monitors the population, down to its thoughts. Everyone on Earth has been infected with a nano-tech virus that makes computerized thought analysis possible. A group of rebels combat this by generating a genetically altered child born immune to the virus. He grows up to become the Nowhere Man, mankind's best chance to topple the invasive regime."
Liquid Comics' Sharad Devarajan and Gotham Chopra arranged the project, which is plannned as having a four-issue arc. The series starts in November in print and digital formats, with artwork done by Liquid's in-house artist Jeevan J. Kang. It is likely that this comic book launch could lead to a film development deal. The story sounds really cool, so I could see it being on the big screen.
Guggenheim has been planning this story for a while and had this to say about it:
"This has always been a project that's near and dear to my heart. I feel like I've grown a lot as a writer in the interim, so I'm really looking forward to tackling this concept and helping to create a new and vibrant science fiction universe."
Guggenheim has previously served as a writer-producer on for No Ordinary Family, Flash Forward and Eli Stone. I loved Flash Forward, but it was cancelled too soon. I think I am one of the few who is excited for Green Lantern this weekend. This sounds like a perfect project for Guggenheim, and I hope it does become a film. What are your thoughts?
