“Pushing Daisies” Given New Life
Pushing Daisies, the sharp, quirky, under-appreciated canceled show created by Bryan Fuller, has been given a new life – as a comic. Fuller has reportedly begun to apply his magic touch to revive the comic for WildStorm.
According to Pushing Daisies star Chi McBride, who played private detective Emerson Cod in the show, “It’s a whole thing about a whole bunch of corpses coming to life. That’s all I know so far, but Bryan was kind enough to share the first few pages. It really looks good.”
“It seems a little darker [than the show],” said McBride, “which is a lot of things that Bryan couldn’t do. There’s one particular story that I hope he does called ‘The Head’. I wished he could’ve done it during the series. It was awesome.”
Pushing Daisies is following the trend of prematurely cancelled and ended series continuing on in comic form that started with Joss Whedon continuing Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel as comics that are considered to be canon.
