Seth Rogen‘s got a lot of interesting small screen projects going on. After his other “dark comic book adaptation” Preacher concluded at AMC, he’s been keeping busy alongside longtime creative partner Evan Goldberg with Future Man on Hulu and The Boys on Amazon. Now, via The Hollywood Reporter, Rogen and Goldberg are teaming up with intriguing talents like David F. Sandberg and Mattson Tomlin to adapt another dark comic book for Amazon: Rick Remender‘s Fear Agent.

Fear Agent is an unorthodox sci-fi series about Heathrow Huston, a charismatic, rugged, rough-around-the-edges, and very alcoholic Texan spaceman. A “fear agent,” if you will. Remender’s comics send him on all kinds of wacky adventures, brimming with humor, horror, and campy pop-art shenanigans. It’s a tricky mix of tones to balance in a filmed medium, but the creative team behind the Amazon series sounds like the right folks for the job. In fact, Amazon is so confident in the team, they outbid other networks like TNT, HBO Max, and Peacock for the series.
