I've been seeing the trailer for Dylan Dog the last couple of weeks, and finally looked up the background on the movie and the comic. Originally it was published in Italy, but later was brought to the U.S. by Dark Horse Comics. The cover to the left is for the almost 700 page Dylan Dog Case Files, which was published in 2009. It includes the comic editions from Italy, finally printed in English. They give this description of Dylan Dog:
An ex-cop who now battles against evil as a "nightmare investigator," Dylan Dog is unlike any private eye you've ever met. If creatures from beyond the unknown are after you, and if you can hire him, he just might save your life.
The movie description from their Facebook page:
Brandon Routh stars as Dylan Dog, world famous private investigator specializing in affairs of the undead. His PI business card reads "No Pulse? No Problem." Armed with an edgy wit and carrying an arsenal of silver and wood-tipped bullets, Dylan must track down a dangerous artifact before a war ensues between his werewolf, vampire and zombie clients living undercover in the monster infested backstreets of New Orleans.
The actor who plays Dylan is the same one who played Superman in Superman Returns. He looks a little more edgy, and hopefully will be. This picture has a steampunk feel to it!
The movie opens April 29th, and I think it looks pretty cool. Here are a few links for more information:
