The rights to Action Lab Entertainment’s comic series Herald have been acquired by Romark Entertainment, in partnership with Markerstone Pictures. The deal will see newcomer Jared Battaglia adapt the comic for a TV series. Herald, created by writer John Reilly and artists Tom Rogers and Dexter Weeks, is an alternate universe story in which a time-traveling Nikola Tesla teams up with writer H.P. Lovecraft and other historical figures to save the world from various cosmic horrors. Historical characters appear throughout the storyline; the television series will largely stick to this premise. Herald will be produced by Romark’s Rock Shaink and Markerstone’s Mark Lawyer, with Joseph New overseeing for Romark.
