Image Comics' hit comic book Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth is the latest addition to the stable of geek animation god Titmouse, Inc. The adaptation is being developed with veteran comedy producers Krysia Plonka and Tracey Baird of Thank You, Brain! Productions, and Todd creators M.K. Perker and Ken Kristensen. Titmouse's geek-favorite shows like Venture Brothers, Black Dynamite and Randy Cunningham: Ninth Grade Ninja air on Disney XD or Adult Swim. "We are beyond thrilled to be the producing partner for Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth alongside the animation geniuses at Titmouse, Inc.," said Plonka. "This is the most deliciously f**ked up comic book we've ever seen, and it will be our distinct pleasure to bring it to life on the screen." Perker said, "We wouldn't trust just anyone to shepherd the deranged and dysfunctional world of Todd to the boob tube, it had to be just the right group of godless, self-medicated comedy producers and animators." "When producers of the edgiest comedy on TV want to take on the edgiest comedy in comics, it's a no-brainer," added Kristensen. "Plus, Internet pirates have been complaining that there aren't enough forms of media through which they can steal our little bag-headed bastard. Well, pirates — you're welcome." Kristensen earlier this year signed deals with Ryan Seacrest Productions, Discovery Studios and A&E. Todd, the Ugliest Kid on Earth sold out of the first print runs of issues 1 and 2 in the first twenty four hours of release. The trade paperback collecting the first four-issue story arc will hit stores August 7, 2013. Issue 5 hits stores September 4.
