Ender's Game: The Comic

Heads up for Ender's Game fans: Marvel has released the first comic adaptation of the classic series. Apparently the first novel is getting a five issue run to be followed by adaptations of the Ender's Shadow books.

Looks to be pretty good so far: http://marvel.com/comics/Enders_Game

I picked up Book 1 last night. I'm not sure if I'm going to dive into it yet, or if I'm going to wait until I have all 5.

I'm pretty excited about this.

That's always my dilemma... whether to commit to ten or twenty pages a month, or just hold out for a nice trade paperback. I'm pretty impatient though, and tend to visit my comicbook store once a week anyway.

Anyway, there's a cool little podcast somewhere at Marvel.com that has an interview with OSC discussing the whole Ender's project. He also talks a little bit about the new Ender's title coming out next month, which is supposedly the first true sequel to the original book. And one of the more interesting tidbits was that this new comic series was sort of being used as previsualization for an upcoming movie adaptation!

Awesome.  I'm currently reading Xenocide right now, so I got to pick this up.
