Creator of ‘Supernatural’ Eric Kripke Develops His Own Comic, to Be Adapted for TV

‘Supernatural’ creator Eric Kripke has revealed his new ‘Amped’ comic series in the works at Vertigo – with a TV show coming to USA.

This is pretty cool, a new show, –and a new comic book, –from the guy who made Supernatural the awesomeness that it is today. You know, I recently got dumped by a guy who didn’t “get” or even like Supernatural… I should have known right away that it wasn’t going to work out. And Amped is pretty much destined to not only be a great comic, –what with it being released by Vertigo and all, –it also promises to be a terrific show. Vertigo is basically where DC Comics choose to stick the good stuff, while they continue pumping out the same shit every year.

While the show is premiering on USA, which is the natural habitat and ecosystem of badly written “man-TV” –that doesn’t mean the show will suck, so much as it will just be slightly out of place, since it’s going to be so awesome. It’s about a guy who buys a homeopathic “smart” pill, –then gets jacked, –a family man with super-strength, –who steps into the role of “real life superhero” –but one wonders just how real shit gets. I mean, are we talking like, Heroes –the suburbs, and politics?  Or more like Shameless if Frank Gallagher could pick up a car? I can’t wait to see how this plays out. If you’ve read the comic, drop us a line and let us know how you liked it!
