In the Real World there hasn't been a new official story since The Matrix Online shut down its virtual world. The comic books that although were fantasticlly written, were no more than just short stories. There is such a huge visual medium with the films that it does deserve its own true comic book.
With Comic Book companies writing continuing tales in the Firefly, Buffy, The Shadow, Batman '66 worlds. I believe there is room for The Matrix to make a comeback. With its obvious tie in to Warner Brothers, DC Comics would probably be the only Publisher who could make them into reality (With the exception of maybe Dynamite as they co-produced the "Batman '66 meets The Green Hornet" tie in comic with DC). The Wachowskis should be involved and hand off a story to a writer who can take their ideas and make it their own. John Logan did that with The Matrix Online stories, which I thought were some of the most imaginative stories that came out of that game. It would only make sense for the same writing partnership be done to the Comic Book world. I get that maybe they may not want to go back into that world again, but I'm certain there are ideas they had that "What If?" and with the use of Comic Book visuals the budget to create those ideas are significantly lower.
So to say that a comic book about the war between The Machines and The Humans is not a huge stretch of the imagination. It could work. I'm certain it will work.
I want to be a part of it.
Am I the perfect person to be writing canonical stories set in The Matrix? Maybe. Maybe not. I know the Real World has a lot of obstacles and boundaries and only the Wachowskis know if there are any stories to tell within their world.
I can only raise my hand and offer myself up as a possible option.
I know that it's a long journey to make this part of the real world. However, every journey starts with a single step. I'm a full believer of stating your goals up front and working towards it. Jumping on that train of fantastical whimsy and seeing how far that train can go.
So I ask if you've gotten this far and believe in this epic journey, I ask you share this with your friends. Share it with people who love the films. If you know someone who has any ties to the Comic Book Industry to pass this message along, I would be immensely grateful and maybe, just maybe, with your help we can make this Redpill's dream become real.
As always I remain obediently yours.
