Its debut last year was the buzz of the comic strip industry. Now in its second year, Mark Tatulli's Lio is making headlines once again, as Variety reports that the wildly popular dark comic strip is being optioned for a live-action feature film! Producer David Kirschner, whose credits include the "American Tail" and "Curious George" films, will bring Lio to life with the help of producing partner Corey Sienega. Read all about it here.
Lio has been a huge hit since it debuted in 100+ newspapers in May 2006. Since then the strip's audience has grown to include the readership of 275+ newspapers all over the world. The first Lio collection, Happiness is a Squishy Cephalopod, was released in August.
