The line forms on the right

Today's moment of fanboy glee:

I've been waiting more than thirty years for someone to present Mackie Messer and Seeräuberjenny in comic book form, and I can't think of a better team for the job than this one.

It would be wild to see these two handle the full story of Three Penny Opera -- rather than just having Macheath and Pirate Jenny as supporting characters in a different story -- but I'll admit that turning a musical into a comic book is really very perverse.

Though I was extremely fond of a Gold Key comic based on the movie 1776 that I owned in childhood...

(With thanks to Gordon for pointing this out.)
