Dreamworks' CG animated "Megamind
" starring Will Ferrel, Brad Pitt and Tina Fey may not hit theaters until November 5, but that hasn't stopped the studio from teaming with DC Comics' WildStorm imprint for a special Comic-Con collectible written by Joe Kelly ("I Kill Giants") with cover art by John Cassaday ("Planetary," "Astonishing X-Men").
Entitled "The Reign of Megamind," the limited edition comic will debut exclusively at Comic-Con, with copies available at the DC Comics booth (#1915). Fans who score a copy can even get them signed by Kelly and Cassaday during the show, with a signing schedule to be announced soon.
Here's how DreamWorks and WildStorm describe the story:
"The Reign of Megamind" chronicles the biggest battles in the long-standing rivalry between the diabolical genius, Megamind, and the heroic champion for justice, Metro Man. With the aid of his henchman, Minion, Megamind kidnaps star-reporter Roxanne Ritchi and uses her as bait to lure Metro Man into what may be their most epic – and possibly final – fight ever."
