Family Guy Becomes A Comic Book…Next Month

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

family guy to become a comic book

By now, we've got Family Guy DVDs, t-shirts, boxers, posters, shot glasses, playing cards, soundtracks, and NOW there are comic books too.

The first-ever Family Guy comic hits stores on July 27, and according to editor Steve White, it promises to delve deeper than ever before into the Family Guy characters/world:

"'The Family Guy' universe is an amazing wellspring of ideas to plunder. It's given us a lot of latitude to develop stories ranging from one-page gag strips to more extended full-length scripts and pretty much everything in between."

"We're even looking at recurring one-pagers, but as I said, really, the world is our oyster here."

More on the characters to be featured in the comic:

"There's no way we would want to miss out on using the likes of Quagmire. There's also a wealth of other characters we'd want to include. We're not just paying lip service to the show. We're really immersing ourselves in it."

And more from White on how the comic book came to be:

"We felt that Family Guy TV show to Family Guy comic was a natural progression, but Fox needed a little convincing. In the end, we winged it and did a two-page comic strip off our own back and that actually seemed to do the trick."

And here's White on show creator Seth MacFarlane's potential involvement:

"If Seth ever fancied taking time out to write a comic strip or do a cover, we'd be pretty appreciative."

What do U think about a Family Guy comic book? Will U give it a read?

Family Guy Exec Producers Sign Deal With Fox

Filed under: TV News

People associated with Family Guy are being successful? STFU!

Writer/Producers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild from the hit animated series are getting their day. They’ve both signed overall deals with 20th Century Fox.

The duo will still be associated with Family Guy as Executive Producers, but no longer as show-runners. They’ll also be getting involved in development with new shows.

No detailed information on the subject matter of their new show, but it looks like it might be a live-action comedy. Here’s what the guys had to say about this promotion:

"We have always felt like 20th was our home, so we’re thrilled to solidify our relationship with the studio.”

And more from the duo:

"We have had a tremendous opportunity working with Seth, and are excited to continue on Family Guy, and look forward to the new projects we will develop over the next three years.”

Congrats, guys! Let us know if you need any ideas. You could always do another spinoff, such as a live-action Quagmire show starring Kevin Dillon. He’ll be done with Entourage soon!

Thoughts?
