We’ve been hearing about a movie adaptation of the comic Cowboy Ninja Viking for quite a while now, but nothing has come of it yet. The movie is still in the works, currently set up at Universal, and now comes word that a director has been chosen for the project.
According to reports, Universal has hired Game of Thrones director Michelle MacLaren to helm the film, which has Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt attached.
Reading a graphic novel that’s geared for the 8-12 crowd can be a bit of a chore. My point is that I have an entirely different outlook on life than your average ten year old. Though my wife might argue that statement given the chance. And while I try to read most everything that my youngest child picks up, I’m usually forcing myself to get through it. Not so with The Silver Six. This comic from Scholastic is everything you want your children to read.
Centered around a young orphan named Phoebe, we watch as her world is turned upside down after being placed into the child welfare system with innumerable others. Banding together with five other children who are also tired of it all, they attempt an escape. Retreating to an isolated moon that they all coincidentally share ownership in, our mini-heroes find themselves the target of corporate greed. Between attempts on their life and the threat of the orphanage again, these six brave kids are in for the fight of their lives. Not to mention that the future of the world is at stake, too.
