Quentin’s comic foray
Quentin Tarantino (pictured) is turning his all-star western movie Django Unchained into a comic book series. The Pulp Fiction director made the surprise announcement at the recent Comic-Con event in San Diego, when he crashed a discussion panel for DC Comics’ Before Watchmen to unveil his own plans for a five-issue series of graphic novels. And Tarantino admitted the project would tie in closely with his upcoming slave drama, telling fans: ‘‘The comic will literally be the first draft of the script.’’ Earlier, Tarantino joined his Django Unchained stars Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington and Christoph Waltz to discuss the concept of the movie with fans. The film is due for release in Australia in January. The comic books are also expected to go on sale next year.
