Kill Them All by Kyle Starks

Hit Graphic Novel ‘Kill Them All’ Coming to Paramount

Screen Rant reports that an adaptation of Kyle Stark’s Kill Them All is currently in development!
The film will be produced by Paramount Pictures with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles producers Josh Appelbaum and Andre Memec at the helm. James Coyne (Treasure Island and Sherlock Holmes 3) will direct.

 

Kill Them All by Kyle Starks

Kill Them All follows a vengeful murderess and a hard-drinking former cop who team up to take down a crime lord. The duo must climb a fifteen-flight Miami high-rise to reach him, and kill all assassins, Luchador gang bosses, ex-boyfriends, and office workers they encounter along the way.

The hit graphic novel was initially published as a Kickstarter project back in 2017. After successfully reaching its funding goal with over 600 backers and $23,000, Oni Press decided to pick up the publishing and distribution rights.

The popular comic is very much described as a “love letter to ‘90s action movies.”

A release date has yet to be announced.

1. $#*! My Dad Says by Justin Halpern

Justin Halpern’s book originally started out as a twitter feed, but he eventually adapted his work into book form and then once more into a comedic sitcom. However, whichever medium you choose, Justin Halpern’s stories will make you laugh hysterically! Throughout his life, Halpern’s father has given him lots of advice and interesting candor, mostly in the form of callous insults. $#*! My Dad Says is a must read and a feel-good book that will brighten your day joke by joke.

 

 

 

 

2. The Lumber Room by Saki

Saki’s short story reads like a witty punchline that will make you chuckle and be proud of one boy’s quest for mischief. The Lumber Yard is about a boy who must stay home with his aunt as punishment for his previous misbehavior during breakfast. The boy is told by his aunt to not go into her garden and cause mischief. I don’t want to spoil the ending, but he makes her eat those words!

 

 

 

3. Much Ado About Nothing by Shakespeare

Shakespeare is famous for many of his tragedies, but his comedies are just as good, if not better. Much Ado About Nothing takes us through a story primarily about the romance between our protagonists, Hero (yes that’s a woman) and Claudio. After returning from war, Claudio realizes how in love he is with Hero and the two plan to get married. However, jealous suitors and all sorts of mischief lead the couple astray. Some of Shakespeare’s best puns and most intricately humorous jokes are in this must-read of a play.

 

 

 

 

4. The Sellout by Paul Beatty

There’s a reason Paul Beatty won the Man Booker Award with The Sellout. Beatty uses his way of satire to completely immerse his reader in the real problems of the world while at the same time poking fun at them. His story revolves around a narrator only known as “Me”, who holds several prejudices against other races. Beatty’s book is often compared to Mark Twain’s writing and for good measure. For those satire fans out there, this is a must read!

 

 

 

5. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will certainly make you giggle non-stop. Douglas Adams created a story in which one of the last humans in existence gets caught into endless mishaps when he is rescued from the destruction of Earth for the need of an alien hyperspace bypass. What follows is countless comedic, sci-fi adventures with the lovable and hilarious cast of wacky characters. My personal favorite will always be the depressed and paranoid robotic companion to the group of hitchhikers, Marvin!
