Graphic Policy

NBC Universal Logos When it comes to television, comics are the hot property with numerous series in development through numerous studios and for numerous tv stations. SyFy is getting in on the act, as they have announced three different series being workd on.

As reported by Deadline, Pax Romana, the amazing comic series created by Jonathan Hickman and published by Image Comics is being developed. Circle of Confusion, which seems to be behind many of these shows, will produce and Syfy veterans Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia of Warehouse 13 are writing the show.

The story involves a time traveling special forces team heading back in time to ancient Rome to help the future. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it.

The Hollywood Reporter has the news on the other two television series. Frank Miller‘s Ronin and Charles Soule‘s Letter 44 are also being worked on.
