The Heavy Metal* Spirit!

One bad dude.This is fantastic news:

"Spirit" comic comes to life on big screen

More than four decades after Will Eisner created him, "The Spirit" -- one of the most influential comics of all time -- is coming to the big screen.

The movie will be adapted and directed by Frank Miller ("Sin City"), who will be on hand for the public announcement Saturday at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

Normally I'd approach this with some aprehension. I mean, they did make a movie about The Phantom and The Shadow and they were both weak.

But, the saving grace of this movie is that it's being directed by Frank Freakin' Miller.

Damn skippy.

*It's metal week, gotta tie this to Heavy Metal somehow.
