Quentin Tarantino‘s original screenplay for Django Unchained was adapted into comic book form over the past year, presenting realizations of scenes that didn’t end up in the final film.

For those who like to wait to pick up one volume rather than several, the hardcover collection is hitting next week. Check out Tarantino’s list of fave western comics below, along with a few pages from the collection. Read More »
