The future of Pushing Daisies is apparently the kind of thing that creator Bryan Fuller couldn't do on television... like have Ned, Chuck and Emerson face an undead army of 1000 zombies. Comic spoilers ahoy.
Despite Fuller saying that he was talking to Marvel about publishing the comic book continuation of the cult series just recently, it turns out that it'll be DC Comics who'll handle the 12-issue series, as he explained to E! Online:
We got a 12-issue order for a comic book for DC Comics... I literally just finished outlining the 12-episode arc, which has an ending that propels us into another big story, so it's kind of blackmailing them into ordering more comics, but we'll see if that'll happen.
But what to expect from this first series? Fuller eagerly shared:
It's basically Chuck, Ned, Emerson and Olive versus 1,000 corpses, so it becomes a zombie movie, but the zombies are articulate and smart and can do things that no other zombies can do. The Pie-Maker versus 1,000 corpses.
Doesn't that just mean that he can touch them and unzombie-fy them? Or would they become zombies again as soon as he re-killed them? Oh, the rules of resurrection are so confusing... As before, Fuller hopes to have the new series ready by the end of the year, with a potential sneak peak available at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.
