The Django Unchained comic series is based on the original Django Unchained screenplay. Several scenes, characters, and even the ending in the screenplay were cut or rewritten for the film, so the comic book series is your opportunity to see how Quentin Tarantino originally envisioned the story. The interior artwork is being done by artist R.M. Guéra (illustrator of Scalped) with each issue’s cover being done by a different artist. It was initially announced at Comic-Con 2012 that this would be a five-issue series, but only four issue covers and four release dates have since been announced. The status of the fifth issue is unknown at this time. Scroll down for covers, preview scans, and release dates.
