Created by writer Joe Kelly and artist J.M. Ken Niimura, I Kill Giants was first launched as a limited comic book series from Image Comics starting in 2008, though it was compiled into a graphic novel and released in 2009. After inspiring a devoted fan following of the comic, a big screen adaptation of I Kill Giants was announced in 2015 with Kelly penning the script for the live-action take on his source material. Directed by Academy Award winner Anders Walter, I Kill Giants debuted at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival late last year and is now making its way to theaters. I Kill Giants faithfully adapts the graphic novel for a striking coming-of-age movie that blends magical realism with heartbreaking drama.
