IN CASE U MISSED IT: Aeon Flux is no Dark Horse
or is she?!

Taken from Dark Horse's press release for August highlights,

Aeon Flux #1
Written by Mike Kennedy, art by Timothy Green II.

Four hundred years in the future, the last of humanity will live behind the protective walls of Bregna, an idyllic utopia built to shelter them from the deadly jungle growing beyond. Life in Bregna is perfect, or as perfect as the government can make the people believe. But not everyone is fooled by their mood-altering propaganda--a small band of freedom fighters wish to see things change, and they just might manage to pull off this impossible dream with the help of their top secret agent, the sexy, deadly Aeon Flux.

As Bregnan authorities prepare a new weapon to use against the jungle pounding at their walls, Aeon prepares to turn their plans against them. But this time she is not alone--she has been instructed to train a new agent, a fiery young woman named Sithandra, who may not be all that she appears to be...

Reintroducing the cult-classic action heroine best known for her animated adventures on MTV, this series will pave the way for her big-screen debut in this fall's blockbuster, live-action adaptation starring Charlize Theron. This four-issue mini-series will lay the foundation for events in the film, with all of the fast-paced action and intriguing conceptual sci-fi of the original cartoon.

32 pages, $2.99, in stores on Aug. 24.

Yes, Aeon Flux is being turned into a live action movie.
Darn. Shoulda been a Peter Chung Anime!
Now it appears to also become a comic based on the movie.
Darn. Who owns the rights to the Peter Chung version? Let's get us some real Aeon Flux comics!
It's still a movie and comic based on Aeon Flux though.
