Watch Marvel’s redo on James Patterson’s Max Ride series
Watch this inside look at Marvel’s adaptation of the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson with the first one, Max Ride #1: First Flight. Now we get to revisit Max and Fang and Iggy and the rest in this new visual take on the popular YA series. I gotta say, I love that Marvel has taken on this challenge of adapting something that originated from a young adult novel.
If this ends up pretty successful for Marvel, I wouldn’t be surprised if they decide to take on more novels in the same way. There are a few books that I would love to see in this format.
Bringing the hit-sensation young adult series Maximum Ride to the world of comics as only Marvel could, this new series follows the high-flying adventures of Max and the “flock” – Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel.
They’re a group of ordinary teenage kids – only they are part human and part avian! The product of genetic tampering that has given them extraordinary abilities, these six teens lives quickly morph into a living nightmare as they try to escape their creators and defend themselves from the deadly ”Erasers”. As Max uncovers the truth about her origins, she’ll discover her true calling – saving the world!
JAMES PATTERSON’S MAX RIDE: FIRST FLIGHT #1 is available April 8th in comic shops and the Marvel Comics app (for iPhone®, iPad®, iPad Touch® & Android devices) and online in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop.
