The First Look At Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' Comic Is Off The Chain

You guys remember when Quentin "The Greatest Living Filmmaker (IMO)" Tarantino bumrushed DC's "Before Watchmen" panel at San Diego Comic-Con and surprised the crowd by announcing a comic based on his upcoming slave-revenge "Southern" "Django Unchained"? Well it looks like that baby is finally upon us and Vertigo sent along a first look.

The comic will be a five-issue mini series, based on an early draft of Tarantino's script for the movie, so I assume we can expect a few differences between that and the comic.

Here's the official synopsis from Vertigo:

Django Unchained tells the story of Django, a slave-turned-bounty hunter who, with the help of his mentor, sets out to rescue his wife from a ruthless Mississippi plantation owner. Drawn by R.M. Guéra (Scalped) and with flashback sequences by Jason Latour, issue #1 features a variant cover by Jim Lee.

"Django Unchained" #1 comes out December 19 from Vertigo Comics, the movie hits on December 25.
