DC/Vertigo Was Going to Publish a Kalifornia Comic Book, Here’s a Look


My memories of 1993’s Kalifornia are vague, but I recall liking it at the time.  Co-star David Duchovny was a big deal because of The X-Files, you had Juliette Lewis playing the lover of a maniac one year before audiences saw her in Natural Born Killers and then there was Brad Pitt, bringing his charisma and weird tics to the role of Early Grayce.  It was also Dominic Sena’s feature debut; he later went on to helm Gone in Sixty Seconds, Swordfish and last year’s dud Season of the Witch.

For the release of Kalifornia, DC/Vertigo Comics was planning to publish an adaptation of this R-rated thriller.  Duncan Fegredo and Chuck Dixon were involved and, last night, former DC/Vertigo employee Tim Pilcher ran all 32 pages of the Kalifornia unpublished adaptation on his blog.

As a plot refresher, the IMDb says the film is about a journalist duo who go on a tour of serial killer murder sites with two companions, unaware that one of them is a serial killer himself.  You can check out the adaptation by following this link or clicking on the proposed comic cover art below.
