Sure, the landscape for comic book based TV shows is larger than ever and, while most of them are very impressive, they tend to lean toward the superhero genre. Perhaps that’s why Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright’s loose adaptation has been somewhat overshadowed.
I use the term “loose” because they took a markedly different Vertigo comic and turned it into what’s essentially a police procedural – another genre that isn’t overexposed by any stretch of the imagination – and infused it with elements of horror, drama, comedy and romance. Okay, the procedural aspect is but one cog in the machine, but if we’re to categorize, that’s where it falls, more or less.
But unlike your run of the mill procedural, »

Singer is no amateur to this franchise as he has directed; X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past (my favorite), X-Men 2, and the original X-Men.
