Oldboy Prequel Comic

oldboy webseries covert

With the release of Spike Lee’s remake of everyone’s favourite Korean revenge thriller, Oldboy fast approaching; with the film coming out in the States on November 27th and the UK on December 7th, a new comic has been released to set up some of the events of the movie.

With the original film being based on a manga of the same name, it is nice to see the story returning to its comic routes as a form of marketing.

The good folks over at IGN have been releasing a new chapter each week, with the first two already being released on the site; you have to wait another week for the last one.

The Devil’s Eyes focuses on Chaney, who is played by Samuel L. Jackson and the hotel where Josh Brolin’s character is held captive for 20 years.

The comic is written and drawn by Jason Badower and fits in perfectly with the tone of the movie.

Hopefully this will be welcome addition to the Oldboy world and set people up for the upcoming release
