Eric Kripke, creator of the CW program Supernatural, talks about the show and the upcoming comic book prequel from Wildstorm:
There’s a SUPERNATURAL comic book being published by DC and Wildstorm written by Peter Johnson, who is one of our co-executive producers. It’s not about the boys; we’ve worked very hard to make it not another craven piece of marketing, but something that fleshes out the universe of the show. Bob [Singer] and I are intimately involved so it feels like, for us, the un-produced episodes of the show. It’s the John Winchester story and it’s called SUPERNATURAL ORIGINS. It starts when mom is burnt on the ceiling, but instead of flashing forward twenty-two years, it stays with John Winchester and it details how he became a demon hunter and how he met characters like Missouri, and Ellen, and Bobby for the first time. It’s the story about a demon hunter with two children and how does he find the demon that killed his wife? So, it’s not about the boys at all, it just fills in the blanks in the boys’ childhood. We’re starting with a six-issue series, and if it sells well then the sky’s the limit. We have twenty-two years worth of stories to tell.
