Samuel L Jackson to Co-write new comic "Cold Space"

Ever since he played Mr. Glass in movies-that-should-be-comics classic Unbreakable, Sam L Jackson has made himself a fanboy go-to guy, effectively spinning the unauthorized likeness rip of Ultimates HNIC Nick Fury into a four color resume for his role as the grizzled man-of-war in the Iron Man franchise, and likely in upcoming Marvel movies like Thor, Avengers and so on. Now he's taking the next logical step...

Sam L will co-write Cold Space for BOOM! Studios with his Afro-Samurai writer and producer Eric Calderon. The book will have art by Jeremy Rock (Threshold, Robocop: Simple Machines) with covers by Dave Johnson (100 Bullets, Unknown Soldier) and Jeffrey Spokes (Irredeemable).  Of course, Jackson will also 'star' in the book, lending his familiar likeness to the book's resident space-faring tough guy...
here's the sales pitch:
From legendary actor Samuel L. Jackson and Emmy nominated writer/producer Eric Calderon, the team that brought you the Emmy-award-winning, best-selling Afro Samurai, comes their next original series — Cold Space! When an on-the-run outlaw crash-lands on a hostile planet on the brink of civil war, he finds himself caught in the crossfire between two warring factions. But in chaos lies opportunity... because where there's war, there's money to be made! A hard-boiled sci-fi action-adventure with covers by Eisner Award-winning artist Dave Johnson and Irredeemable cover artist, Jeffrey Spokes!
32pgs, FC $3.99

going from movies to comics will seem illogical and backwards to some, but it's not. Even though comics doesn't generate the money that film does, it doesn't cost what film does either. and there's one thing that comics knows how to cultivate: Fans that will spend money on movies.  This is a good look for BOOM! as well, who have managed to get connected to several projects (NOLA, Incredibles, The Muppet Show) with movie/TV properties, talent, or both.  What do YOU think? 
oh yeah, so here's a brief interview, where Jackson seems to know nothing about his role in Thor! NICE! Sam Jack is so cool that he's clean even when he's clueless!
