" @/dev/null: yeah, it doesn't seem famliy friendly but I'm stoked it's even going to get made"
Yes, definetely not family friendly if the TV Show is based on Strange Tales Vol. 2 or their mini-series and Vol.1. The best way to exploit C&D is to make a rated R (or PG, i'm not from U.S.A., so i'm not so sure about your rating sistem) tv show..i know that it could sound silly considering that C&D are 16/17 years old...but in their first appearences they killed their torturers, they almost killed Silvio Manfredi and they have also a conflictual relationship with religion (Mantlo did an amazing work on these two characters and their supporting cast, for example: i'm not so sure that the thoughts of Father Delgado were so pure. his morbidity about Dagger is suspicious) and cops.
" And if they intend to whitewash their history, why even bother in the first place?
Wait and see, I guess."
Unless as Antiterra said, they want to whitewash their history. but if they wanna rewrite it..why don't they make a Power Pack TV-show? this will be perfect for ABCFamily. ah but they have already something similar: No Ordinary Family http://www.imdb.it/title/tt1591493/
" I LOVE Cloak and Dagger this is good news!!!! but, is it live action or animated? and will it be toned down for an ABCFamily audience? C&D has always been a little dark: a little more about the harsher side of being a teen superhero I mean, they're runaways, afterall very very interesting news..... "
i quote every single word :) i'm a big fan of Cloak and Dagger too. I hope it will be a live action tv show; anyway i don't think that C&D fit very well with the ABCFamily roster: http://abcfamily.go.com/shows They have many obscure enemies: Nightmare, drug-dealers, Silvermane, Mr. Jip...
" is their series still ongoing? why doesn't anybody like them? why doesn't marvel promote more like other heroes such as deadpool etc. are they dating ? i wanna learn more about them any suggestion of good trades to look for them in ?
@darkcloakx: No, at the moment they don't have any ongoing series. Anybody like them?I like them! a lot! :) Dating? Yes...the last frame in their last one-shot issue explains it wery well. Suggestions? yes check out my list: http://www.comicvine.com/myvine/_dev_null/cloak-and-dagger/75-18320/ It's a work in progress, so i'll add other comics books in the next days. but it can help you. If you find a lot of grammatical mistakes in my comments, it's because english isn't my native language ;)
start with this: http://www.comicvine.com/cloak-dagger-child-of-darkness-child-of-light-cloak-dagger-child-of-darkness-child-of-light/37-176170/ it's a good place to start, and it's very easy to find. Also their other 80's comic book series are very easy to find, at low prices.
They were originally due a series of their own. But they were snaffled by Matt Fraction for the dreadful 'Dark X-Men' which led to them being in limbo on Utopia for months.
I would have prefered to see them in their own series instead of having their characters messed around. What was all that bullS$*t about Dagger desperately wanting to be a mutant? They have repeatedly rejected offers to join the X-Men & Xavier's school. It was all rubbish... so I would preferred to have a proper Cloak & Dagger series than that mess!
