Every so often, a TV show comes along that leaves comic book fans asking, "Why isn't that a comic book series?" Sometimes we luck out (like with DC Comics' recently released "Heroes" collections) and other times, not so much (still waiting on that four-color adaptation of "Lost," publishers...). But apparently, Jim Lee and the rest of the Wildstorm crew have heard the pleas from fans of NBC's hit action/comedy, "Chuck," and have delivered a fun-filled and action-packed six-issue mini-series which kicked off this past June.
Following the cast of characters from the television series, "Chuck" the comic book (written by series co-executive producer Peter Johnson and series writer Zev Borow) is pegged as an adventure that's "too big for television," and judging by the exotic locales Chuck Bartowski and his super-spy counterparts have been so far -- Japan, the Amazon and Eastern Europe just to name a few -- it's an apt description.
With the penultimate issue of the mini-series set to hit the stands on October 29, DC/Wildstorm has offered up Splash Page readers an exclusive look at the upcoming issue -- check it out after the jump!
In the six-issue mini-series, Chuck and his friends have been on a globe-hopping adventure in which they've faced off against everything from sexy, sword-wielding assassins to even sexier double-agents. However, the mission they embark on, although shrouded in secrecy at first, soon reveals itself to be the rescue of a mysterious man who holds high importance in geopolitical relations. The action picks up right off the bat in "Chuck" #5...
