Return of the Middleman

If you're like me and miss The Middleman, you're probably wondering what the deal with it is. Has it been cancelled or not?

Well, according to creator Javier Grillo-Marxuach, "Whatever future The Middleman has will depend entirely on sales of the DVD boxed set ... If the DVD sells well, maybe there will be an opening to bring the characters back in some form or another ... history has shown that this is a possibility."

In the meantime, Grillo-Marxuach is revisiting the characters one more time, but in comic book form. Which is cool since it started out as a comic in the first place. But what's extra cool for those of us who aren't familiar with the original comic (and, really, shame on us for that) is that the new graphic novel The Middleman: The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse will feature the TV versions of the characters. So instead of these unfamiliar faces...

...we'll get this one.

I miss you Wendy Watson!

I miss Wendy Watson too. I downloaded some of the episodes from iTunes, but will also support the series by buying the DVD set.

I hope the Middleman returns on screen someday, and in the meantime ... yay for the comic!
