Happy! Issue One

We’re less than a month away from finally seeing RZA‘s feature debut, The Man with the Iron Fists, and post-Fists, it’ll be interesting to see where his directorial career goes. Based on today’s news that RZA is adapting comic book author Grant Morrison‘s brand new series, “Happy!,” with Morrison set to handle the script, it appears that the newly-minted director is already looking towards the future.

For those of you who have yet to pick up “Happy!,” including myself, here’s the official plot synopsis:

“Meet Nick Sax, corrupt, intoxicated ex-cop turned hit-man, adrift in a stinking twilight world of casual murder, soulless sex, eczema and betrayal. With a hit gone wrong, a bullet in his side, the cops and the mob on his tail, and a monstrous child killer in a Santa suit on the loose, Nick and his world will be changed forever this Christmas. By a tiny blue horse called Happy.”

If a tiny blue horse doesn’t sell you on a film, then what will?

We actually spoke with RZA yesterday, and he couldn’t have sounded more pleased about how The Man with the Iron Fists has turned out. As the man told us, this new phase of his career is exciting, even if it doesn’t allow to him to walk onto set after smoking a blunt. If The Man with the Iron Fists will garner that same excitement from audiences towards RZA is far, far up in the air, as it isn’t being sold as a movie for everyone, at least one thing is for sure: The Man with The Iron Fists probably won’t be the first and last time we see RZA’s name in front of a movie.
