Attention, Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, Nick Frost, Jessica Stevenson:

Bring back Spaced.

As a comic book.

Let me elaborate. Spaced always was heavily rooted in pop culture. The comic book character caricatures already exist: see the covers of any of the DVD collections. Spaced was also an extremely dense, rich, vibrant, colourful universe. It was time-consuming and exhausting to film. Comic books do not have these issues. They can much more easily be expressive, and larger than life. And finally, the main reason why no further Spaced has been made: all the actors are too old. They are no longer contemporary twenty-somethings. Comics do not have this issue. Tim and Daisy can stick around for decades.

Get the rights out there! People would kill for Spaced: The Graphic Novel! I am totally serious.

I already HAVE killed for this, but did they listen? NO, they just "rehabilitated" me...

It's not up to Pegg, Stevenson, et al. They signed all the rights away to get the series made. They mentioned this regarding the USA Spaced pilot; they had nothing to do with it, because Spaced doesn't belong to them. So sad.
