Garth Ennis reveals all at NYerdCon

NOT a regular on the convention circuit by any means (though he was present at one of my first, where he scandalized a room full of idealistic Americans with stories about dumb, self-mutilating terrorists that probably ruined every sentimental misconception they ever held about Northern Ireland), Garth is always entertaining. Here he speaks about THE BOYS leaving Wildstorm, PREACHER's ongoing development at HBO, and how Dan Dare would be his dream project (woah!). That'd be brilliant - a natural fit (written by a product of post-colonial Britain, with all those subtle complexities that brings, but loaded with the military themes Ennis loves). I wonder who owns the rights these days? And can Ian Kennedy draw it?
