Jean-David Morvan and Ste Tirasso will adapt the script to the comic page next year.
French comics writer Jean-David Morvan and Italian artist Ste Tirasso will adapt Napoli-New York, a film manuscript by Italian director Federico Fellini, into a graphic novel for Arcancia Studio.
Napoli-New York hasn’t been made into a film (yet), but was one of the last works from Fellini. It was co-written by Opium Den writer Tullio Pinelli.
“During my life as a scriptwriter, I invented stories and universes, worked on biographies and adaptations, but there’s one thing I’ve never done before: adapt a manuscript meant for a movie into a graphic novel, especially from such a master,” Morvan said. “The story takes place in two cities: New York City, which I know very well, and Naples, which I don’t know yet. I plan to take time to visit and really feel the spirit of the city, so that everything I learn can become part of my script.”

IDW will unleash the miniseries in October.
Scott Snyder will return to his Dark Spaces line at IDW for a new series he’ll write with artist Hayden Sherman rejoining him — Dark Spaces: Dungeon might be “the darkest story I’ve ever written,” the writer said.
Snyder and Sherman previously worked together on the first Dark Spaces title, Wildfire, which came out in 2022. Then earlier this year Dark Spaces: Good Deeds by writer Che Grayson and artist Kelsey Ramsay launched, which is currently on its second issue. Snyder intends for Dark Spaces to not only showcase his own work, but also the comics of up-and-coming talent. The titles are part of the IDW originals line, which is spearheaded by editor Mark Doyle.
“Getting to explore the worlds of Dark Spaces has been a career highlight without question, and doing so alongside my dear friend and trusted editor Mark Doyle just makes it all the better,” Snyder said. “The ability to forgo supernatural elements in favor of highlighting the true light and darkness of our reality has been able to take me back to basics in a truly exciting fashion. I’ll say this – if Dark Spaces: Wildfire was modeled after noir, then Dark Spaces: Dungeon is a stone-cold thriller. It might be the darkest story I’ve ever written, while at the same time some of the most fun it’s ever been developing a new series.”

Look for the first volume in stores next April.
Covenant, the popular Webtoon comic by LySandra Vuong, will come to print next year courtesy of Oni Press.
The webcomic has topped 21 million views on the site, and features a Catholic exorcist who has lost his faith and must protect a “seemingly normal” human from rising demonic forces.
“Covenant combines classic shounen manga tropes with fantasy Catholicism to tell an action-packed story in which angels talk to us and demons walk among us,” said Vuong. “Covenant is an unconventional comic. It’s supernatural, a little blasphemous, a little sexy and unapologetically queer.”
