Development News: Superpowered Streetwalker

Word is that Spike TV (who brought us Stripperella) is working on adapting the comic "The Pro" to the small screen.

For those unfamiliar, The Pro was the story of a hooker who is granted superpowers and then becomes basically a white-trash, i-don't-give-a-shit superheroine. Extremely crude and violent comic based on normal standards -- right up Spike TV's alley! :)

I do have a copy of this. I was very suprised after I read it that it was on the usual new comic release stand. The owner had not read it, and after I talked to him, he moved it to his back room which has "those" kind of books in it.

Yeah.....while it wasn't solicited as an adult/XXX comic. It's about the closest you'll find to it given the language, violence, and adult situations in it. Gotta say I didn;t care for the book either....just reporting it as being "on topic"

www.popmatters.com/comics/pro.shtml Review of the comic.

I'm going to order a copy. It looks like something I'd like. Not a fan of hoods or masks so I hope the TV series doesn't follow that theme.
