SDCC ’09 | Dark Horse to publish Morgan Spurlock comic book

by  in Comic News Comment

According to the Hollywood Reporter, documentary maker Morgan Spurlock is teaming up with Dark Horse Comics for a comic that will “feature bizarre stories about the U.S.’s obsession with fast food.”

Spurlock, who once spent a month eating only McDonald’s to show the effects it had on his body for his film Super-Size Me, will write Supersized: Strange Tales From a Fast Food Culture, with a mix of artists “scripting and drawing the book.” The book will even have its own Crypt Keeper of sorts, a character called MC Super-Size Me.

Spurlock will be at the Marriot Hotel & Marina this weekend, hosting a casting call for a Simpsons 20th anniversary special he’s filming for FOX. Watch for his new comic next spring.
