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]
