‘Team Comicana’ Marries Reality Television With Comic Book Culture

Reality television has never been hotter, and comic books are getting plenty of recognition thanks to the Hollywood scene and the shocking growth of Comic-Con culture, so I suppose it was really just a matter of time before the two popular culture fixtures hooked up and had themselves a filthy love child.

According to Bleeding Cool, there’s a new reality series called “Team Comicana” in the works from Comcast/NBC/Universal that follows “the real life adventures of a bunch of geeks around the world.” Filming began on Saturday night as the show’s participants stood in line outside of London’s Forbidden Planet waiting for a Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. signing for “Kick-Ass.” From the signing, the series will follow the “bunch of geeks” as they work their way towards this summer’s Comic-Con in San Diego.

I’m shamelessly addicted to “Survivor,” so I have no intentions of getting on a high horse and saying that a comic book reality series is the worst idea of all time. That said, “Team Comicana” doesn’t sound particularly riveting. Not a knock against “Kick-Ass,” but the Matthew Vaughn directed feature isn’t exactly “Star Wars.” I’m not really interested in spending an hour watching comic book fans waiting on line for “Kick-Ass,” and I’m even less interested in watching them wait on lines at Comic-Con. I don’t need a reality series to live through that nightmare – I just need a plane ticket.[Source: Bleeding Cool]
