Danny McBride pens Your Highness prequel comic

Pin it

The upcoming medieval stoner comedy Your Highness, co-written by Danny McBride and directed by his Eastbound and Down collaborator David Gordon Green, now has a prequel comic from Dark Horse, co-written, again, by McBride. The film also stars Zooey Deschanel, the ubiquitous Natalie Portman, and the ubiquitous James Franco, who presumably will be excited to add "comic-book character" to his ever-expanding resume.

Dark Horse has a five-page prequel online, and it's pretty funny to see McBride's chubby, jovial face in comic form. Stoner comedy is usually not my thing unless I am actually high and imagining that I am being funny, but on the other hand, anything related to Eastbound and Down is worth checking out (take these Nerve features starring McBride, for example). Your Highness comes out April 8.
