Batman Returns
Warner Bros.

Between the epic run of Game of Thrones and the impressive first season of Westworld, odds are good that you’re currently rocking an annual subscription to HBO or HBOGo.

In fact, we can sometimes get so caught up in the flurry of long-form television that we forget that HBO has some pretty darn good movies, too.

Jessica Jones creator Brian Michael Bendis apparently jumped the gun to reveal that Cinemax had an eye toward adapting Marvel Icon imprint Scarlet (especially given he claimed HBO at the time). That said, with the cat out of the bag, the revered comic artist teases that Scarlet would very-likely follow some of her reality-bending roots into the live-action adaptation.

‘Iron Fist’ Won’t Keep Finn Jones Off ‘Game of Thrones’ (It Totally Will)

Iron Fist Finn Jones Game of Thrones
HBO / Marvel

As often tends to be the case with TV, Finn Jones winning the role of Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist brought troubling implications for his Game of Thrones role as Loras Tyrell, last seen being whisked off to a dungeon in Season 5. Jones will at least return for Season 6, but also claims that Iron Fist and The Defenders wouldn’t prevent him from doing both. Don’t bet on it, though.

The Expert’s Guide To HBO’s ‘True Detective’ And Weird Comic Book Fiction

HBO True Detective Weird Comic Book Fiction Morrison Moore Guide

True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto has claimed that Alan Moore Moore and Grant Morrison were the first writers to excite him about the possibilities of storytelling.

With everyone looking to solve the many remaining mysteries of True Detective, it’s tempting to ask: are comic books the key? Pizzolatto’s spectacular Moore crib aside, I’d go with with a big no. Ain’t nothing going to settle the debate around Carcosa let alone Marty Hart’s hot dating skills, but comics do represent a largely unexplored and appropriately strange route into the show. So without further ado here’s our by no means exhaustive guide to True Detective and weird comic books.
