DC’s strangest comic series may be heading to the small screen. Warner Bros. have reportedly trademarked “Strange Adventures,” specifically for a live-action television series.
Bleeding Cool speculates that the timing of the trademark indicates that they are working on bring the Strange Adventures comic to television sooner rather than later, with an announcement imminent at this weekend’s New York Comic-Con.
We have been told by a reliable source that DC Comics has indeed been working to adapt Strange, but it is not clear which TV network or streaming service it will air on.
Strange Adventures has a long, complicated history as an ongoing comic book brand. It was the first DC Comics science fiction title, and it lasted 244 issues after first launching in 1950. It has featured many heroes and villains of the DC universe including, but not limited to, Adam Strange and the Atom Knights, Deadman, Enchantress, Captain Comet and Animal man.
To add to the speculation, Batman writer Tom King and Mister Miracle artist Mitch Gerads is working on a 12-issue revival miniseries starring Adam Strange. The timing could not be better, and knowing DC Comics, this is likely not a coincidence.
