Genndy Tartakovsky Still Interested in Finishing His Luke Cage Series for Marvel

Known for creating classic cartoons like "Dexter's Laboratory," "Samurai Jack" and "Star Wars: Clone Wars," director-animator Genndy Tartakovsky recently revealed to IGN he is ready and willing to complete a four-part "Luke Cage" miniseries for Marvel Comics.

Tartakovsky's miniseries "Cage!" entered development at Marvel back in 2007, but the project got sidetracked and stalled. However, Tartakovsky not only confirmed he had written and drawn out the series but that he would be willing to see it through to completion.

"The deal was, I agreed to do the comic as long as I had no schedule, and I actually finished all the pencils and part of the inking, and it was just a matter of continuing on," he shared. "Then I think I got into 'Sym-Bionic Titan,' and then into the features, and then I got too busy -- and I think my contact at Marvel left."

"I actually just found them last week, all my pencils, and I was like, 'Oh, this still stands up! It'd be fun to finish it,'" he added.

Luke Cage has no comic series at the moment, though he will appear in his own Netflix series starring Mike Colter in 2016.
