DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint is continuing its translation of the original screenplay for Quentin Tarantino’s Oscar-winning western onto the paneled page this week with the release of the third issue of its six-part “Django Unchained” series.
Hero Complex readers can exclusively check out the early pages from the issue, in addition to getting a look at the cover by Massimo Carnevale and a variant cover by Guillem March.
Reginald Hudlin, the Oscar-nominated “Django Unchained” producer who penned the miniseries, told Hero Complex earlier this year that fealty to the original iteration of Tarantino’s acclaimed screenplay — about freed slave Django teaming with the grandiloquent bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz to search for a trio of ruthless overseers known as the Brittle brothers — was paramount.
“Quentin and I, we love to talk and one of the things we love to talk about is comic books, specifically western comic books,” Hudlin said. “I had a feel for what he wanted, the main thing was to be as faithful as possible to the original script. We knew there would be the movie and the movie would reflect all the changes that had occurred through our conversations and production, but the idea was let’s give the audience something different with the comic book. Let’s really show them all the ideas and scenes that didn’t make it into the movie but still would be interesting to the fans.”
