Created by Tiziano Sclavi, the comic book series chronicles the exploits of its titular British paranormal investigator, who with his sidekick Grouch, a Marx impersonator, takes on cases that usually involve monsters, ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and zombies.

“James Wan and Atomic Monster are masters of the horror genre and have a proven sensibility on how best to adapt comics to the screen,” said the publishers’ president Davide Bonelli. “We are so thrilled to have this dream team working on one of our most important characters.”

“Dylan Dog is truly one of my favorite comic books ever,” added Wan. “I was first introduced to the Nightmare Investigator back in high school by my European friends. And though I didn’t understand the foreign text, I easily understood the story through the beautiful artwork and its loving references to the horror genre. I’m excited to team with Sergio Bonelli Editore to bring this to life on screen.”

The 10-episode live-action series will be co-produced by Atomic Monster and Bonelli Entertainment. Vincenzo Sarno and Giovanni will executive produce for Bonelli Entertainment, while Michele and Masiero and Simone Airoldi will oversee for the company. Atomic Monster is currently seeking out writers for the adapted series. Wan and Michael Clear will executive produce for Atomic Monster with Rob Hackett overseeing for the company.

Bonelli Entertainment acquired the rights to Dylan Dog after Bonelli branched out into production last year. The comic was previously adapted into a feature in 2011 titled Dylan Dog: Dead of Night. The 33-year-old Dylan Dog comic book series, published in the U.S. by Dark Horse Comics, boasts more than 500 comics stories and sales of more than 50 million copies worldwide.
