Steve Blackman ComicBook Interview About The Umbrella Academy
The English-speaking news page of this world known as ComicBook , gave birth to an exclusive interview with Steve Blackman , the person in charge of bringing this adaptation series to television. In which talking about this program, he said:
It is not our goal to ever outperform the comics as we now navigate being in Game of Thrones territory – Blackman
Blackman also said:
First of all, I am very close to Gerard and Gabriel, so I launch the season to them before I do it, letting them know what I am doing.
They’re very nice and they’re throwing me where the next volumes are going, and you know, the two mediums are intersecting now, sometimes they’re looking at something I do and they say, well, we should put that in the graphic novel, and they say, well why don’t you do this on the show.
We accept that they are different things, but we love it when we find those crosses.
But I have a good idea of where they are going, I have an idea of where I want to go, and we are working together to get to that happy place.
But I don’t want to get ahead of them. I love what they do. So I hope if it ends, it never will.
