“We generate 20+ new original series a year and are thrilled to partner with a streamer that is as prolific as we are,” added company CEO and Founder Ross Richie. “BOOM!’s unique partnership model benefits creators by positioning them to be packaged with high-end directors, screenwriters, and producers. We’re thrilled to continue our track record of translating our best-selling award-winning library with the best TV talent in the business but now with the undisputed leader of the new streaming era.”

@MutantEquality - I was hoping for Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated show.

I'm not even a fan of the movies or the TV shows, I don't normally even read their comics but I heard good about both of their comics, so I tried their first team up together.

@marvel72 - You won't go wrong with either Something Is Killing The Children or Once and Future, both are absolutely phenomenal in my opinion.

@Kiwiavenger - seems ironic because disney already worked on power rangers.

@Kiwiavenger - Sorry, that’s a Hasbro property not a Boom property. Paramount will have a movie coming out soon enough though.

Forget what I said earlier, Memetic has to be first.

So why has one of the streaming service (or movies studios) tapped all the classic Image titles yet? And if we aren’t going to get more Valiant live action movies (but please more live action movies) then why doesn’t one of the streaming services make an animated Valiant superhero show? Too much good potential out there not being used.

Boom Studios did a decent adaptation of Elric of Melnibone`. I would like to see that done correctly.

Ok netflix, listen, hear me out now....you already bought millarworld comics to make adaptations for like three years ago and we’ve seen NOTHING from that. How about instead of buying more things you can adapt, you adapt things from what you have. Just a thought.
