The onslaught of Comic-Con-timed movie deals gets an early start with news that Watchmen producer Lloyd Levin has picked up the rights to Terry Moore’s Echo.
Variety reports the deal was for “six figures.”
The follow-up to Moore’s long-running Strangers in Paradise, Echo debuted in March 2008 as an ongoing monthly under the creator’s Abstract Studios banner. The series centers on Julie, a young photographer who witnesses the explosion of a high-tech battle suit. The liquid shrapnel fuses with her body, turning her into a living weapon.
In addition to Watchmen, Levin has produced the Hellboy live-action and animated features.
