EXCLUSIVE: Marc Guggenheim, one of the writers who brought the DC Comics hero Green Lantern to the screen, will next launch Nowhere Man, a new comic book series through Liquid Comics. The story takes place 500 years in the future, where an oppressive government monitors the population, down to its thoughts. Everyone on Earth has been infected with a nano-tech virus that makes computerized thought analysis possible. A group of rebels combat this by generating a genetically altered child born immune to the virus. He grows up to become the Nowhere Man, mankind’s best chance to topple the invasive regime.
The deal was put together by Liquid Comics’ Sharad Devarajan and Gotham Chopra, and the series will launch with a four-issue arc, starting in November in print and digital formats. Artwork was done by Liquid’s in-house artist Jeevan J. Kang. These Liquid launches usually lead to film development deals, and this sounds like it has cinematic potential. It is something that Guggenheim has been thinking about for a long time.
“This has always been a project that’s near and dear to my heart,” Guggenheim said. “I feel like I’ve grown a lot as a writer in the interim, so I’m really looking forward to tackling this concept and helping to create a new and vibrant science fiction universe.” Guggenheim has also been a writer-producer on TV series No Ordinary Family, Flash Forward and Eli Stone.
