The rights to Image Comics’ Nonplayer, the critically-acclaimed new comic miniseries from artist/writer Nate Simpson, has been optioned and picked up by Warner Bros. according to Variety magazine.
The comic is about online gamer Dana, who tops and defeats a famous player in the online fantasy gaming world of Jarvath. However, with online notoriety comes more than anyone really expected, with Dana’s real and digital worlds beginning to spiral out of control.
Congrats to Nate. Nonplayer is a beautiful comic with an interesting concept and the immense popularity of the first (and so far only) issue has proven the power that indie non-Big 2 comics can have.
