It looks like we're getting another comic book show soon, though this one might be more interesting than most. Rather than focus on superheroes or zombies, Injection by Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey, and Jordie Bellaire is a bit deeper, as it centers on five scientists who try to decide on humanity's future. The fact that a comic like this could be getting a live-action show could lead to something groundbreaking.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Cable Productions (UCP) might be bringing the Image comic book series to the small screen. UCP worked on a number of successful shows like Mr. Robot and Happy!, so if any company can bring Injection to life it's them.

Currently, it's not yet known how involved the creators of the comic will be with the series, though it is worth noting that Warren Ellis has worked on numerous shows already. Ellis wrote Netflix's successful Castlevania animated series and the X-Men anime. The report also states that Ellis is working with UCP over El Pantera.


Injection was first published in 2015 and revolves around a group of five highly specialized individuals who are brought together by the British government to hypothesize about the future of human culture. After discovering the results, the group decides to act on it by creating an unusual artificial intelligence using a combination of technology and shamanistic magic, which makes its way into our world.

No release date or network for the series has been revealed.
