Bryan Fuller Talks About the Upcoming ‘Pushing Daisies’ Comic

“Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller — who recently left his gig at the superhero show “Heroes” — talked with ComicsAlliance about his upcoming comic book adaptation of “Pushing Daisies” at DC Comics, the unanswered questions the comic will address, and why moving the story to DC will make it bigger than ever before.

Unlike many comics adaptations that shift TV or movie franchises into the hands of unrelated creators, the “Pushing Daisies” comic will have the kind of staff every fan would hope for: Fuller himself, along with the “Pushing Daisies” writers.

Fuller says that the show always had a comic book influence in its production design and visual style, and moving the narrative to comics as opposed to live-action also means that the writers will have far more freedom in telling stories. “Since we were working on a television show for two years, it was always done on budget and we had certain parameters in which we could tell stories,” he said. “But with a comic book, all those restrictions and all those walls come tumbling down and the sky’s the limit… The world’s going to get bigger, in a strange way.”

The comic will continue where the canceled TV show left off, allowing Fuller to finish up many of the unresolved plot points, including the mythology of the gold watches, the relationship between Chuck and Ned’s fathers, and their history in the Blue Berets. Another plotline deals with the familiar comic book theme of zombies, which Fuller calls “Ned versus a thousand corpses. It’s our take on a zombie film, but the zombies are articulate and smart and can do things that no other zombie can do.”
