The latest hiatus came as a result of a separate-yet-related Bendis and Oeming project: the "Powers" television adaptation. A pilot was written and filmed, but apparently it wasn't what FX was looking for, so it's back to the drawing board. Though fans have wondered about the status of the series, everyone involved continues to assure that the show is still in the works.
But the duo could not stay away from the medium that launched both their careers and spawned the still-gestating live action show for long. February sees the launch of an all-new volume with an all-new title: "Powers: Bureau" (formerly known as "Powers: FBI"). With Pilgrim and Walker both moving up to bigger and potentially better things in the Federal Bureau of Investigations, CBR News spoke with Oeming about their new responsibilities, what they mean for the characters, what led to the series double-name change and the latest status of the television pilot.
"Powers: The Bureau" #1, written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Michael Avon Oeming, hits stands on February 13.
