It’s not unusual to base a movie or TV show on a comic book. It is unusual to launch a comic book and feature film at the same time.
That’s the case with the Matthew Vaughn-directed “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and the Mark Millar/Dave Gibbons comic book, “The Secret Service.”
“Mark and I were lamenting about how spy movies have become so serious. They just don’t have the style and pacing of the spy movies we watched while growing up,” Vaughn says.
They decided to do something about the void since 007 forgot he has a license to chill.
