Hollywood Attorney Skip Brittenham Prepping Massive Graphic Novel

The name of the October 15 graphic novel release is Anomaly, and that it certainly is. Mainly because the co-author is none other than show business super-attorney Skip Brittenham, whose day job involves negotiating massive pay-or-play deals for A-list actors.

At 370 pages, Anomaly is being hyped as the longest graphic novel yet. Brittenham has paired with artist Brian Haberlin (of Spawn series fame) for a story set in 2717:

Humans live in off-world colonies, and a single corporation, The Conglomerate, routinely conquers other planets to steal their resources. The story follows a group of explorers who embark on a diplomatic mission to a mysterious planet, only to find themselves embroiled in a global conflict between its exotic inhabitants… Brittenham and Haberlin worked with distinguished professors in philosophy, religion and science to develop Anomaly‘s cultural landscape and planetary functions based on actual historical and scientific facts.

The tablet version of Anomaly will be narrated by top-name actors and will includes a free “Ultra Augmented Reality” layer for iPad, iPhone and Android. The film rights meanwhile have already been claimed by Brittenham pal Joe Roth.
