The comic is set in 2020, which'll make the new TV project pretty damn timely, as we're unlikely to see it premiere until then.

The Invisibles launched on Vertigo back in 1994, and follows a cell of 'The Invisible College', a secret group that battles oppression using time travel, magic, meditation, and good old fashioned ultraviolence,

10 Things About The Matrix You Never Knew

10 Things About The Matrix You Never Knew
Bullet time, trench coats, red pills / blue pills: the Wachowski siblings changed the game with The Matrix, the sci-fi action thriller that blew our minds in 1999. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about The Matrix.

Proof of concept.

The Chicago-born Wachowski siblings got their start in the comic book world, writing stories for Hellraiser creator Clive Barker's Razorline imprint at Marvel. The first Wachowski script to get made by Hollywood was Assassins. It was directed by Richard Donner and was so heavily rewritten they tried to have their names removed. The Wachowskis definitely wanted to direct The Matrix. Producer Joel Silver was blown away by the script but knew the studio wouldn't have confidence in the unproven duo as directors.

Created and produced by Leslie Stevens & Joseph Stefano

Talk about a release that should need no introduction: when MGM Home Video released its first DVD sets of Outer Limits sixteen years ago, we saw the pale transfers and the feeble encoding (eight hours per disc!) and immediately wished for a reissue. Syndicated TV broadcasts looked better.
