    He's my favorite non-Marvel/DC comic character and I want a goddamn movie. And Robert Rodriguez should direct.

    on the SIN CITY RECUT DVD extra's one of the prop designers or something mentions that Rodriguez informs him well in advance possible projects and listed Mad Man as one he was considering when he was starting to get the ball rolling on Sin City... Hope I returns to it... i doubt it though... it'd be sweet though

    Who's your pick for Frank?

    Probably an unknown for Frank. As far as physical characteristics go, I want someone who's about 6' and has a very natural athletic build. Gymnast physique to be exact. Actually, if Mike Allred can act, get him to do it. They're practically clones. As for the supporting cast...

    Dr. Flem-Liam Neeson

    Joe-Thora Birch

    Monstadt-Marlon Brando (If he was alive)

    Mott-Robin Williams

    Astro Man-Jude Law

    The only...repeat: the ONLY comic role I want for Johnny Depp is that of Frank Einstein/Madman. He'd be awesome.

    A movie would be awesome, but how about a cartoon? They could air it on Adult Swim. It worked for The Boondocks.

    This May? That's so soon. How come we haven't heard any other new prior to now?

    anyone wanna fill me in on Madman? Ive seen the character before. He looks cool. Some back history would be nice. What is the story about? and are there any trades worth picking up?

    I've never read Madman myself, but it seems to be a popular recommendation.

    It was a darn good comic, the only real downside being the six-month-plus gap between issues coming out.

    NUTSHELL
    Basically he's a guy who's been brought back from the dead and doesn't remember his previous life. He wears the outfit not to conceal his ID, but to cover up his frankenstein-esque body. he hangs out with robots and scientists, has a pretty girlfriend and has some sort of weird not-quite defined superpowers.

    From the article...

    "He will also be creating new "Madman" and "Atomics" comics real soon."

    I think I'm gonna cry.
