Planet Of The Nerds Lands At Paramount Players
by Olly MacNamee
As early cheerleaders of AHOY Comics, and continuing to champion them and the daring comics they put out we’d like to congratulate Paul Constant, Alan Robinson, Randy Elliott and colorist Felipe Sobreiro who’s Planet of the Nerds has just been picked up by Paramount Players, a division of Paramount Pictures, for adaption onto the silver screen. We’ll be keeping an eye out for further mews, but why not check out our interview with writer and co-creator Paul Constant here, to learn more about this time-travelling comedy.
Here’s the original solicit for Planet of the Nerds #1 with the whole series available in trade paperback now.
Three high school jocks in the 1980s are accidentally frozen by an experimental cryogenics device, only to be revived in the computer-driven, superhero movie-loving world of 2019–an era ruled by nerds! PLUS! A backup series explores the characters’ origins.
