News is coming fast out of Comic-Con today that just now, Quentin Tarantino made an un-announced appearance during DC’s “Before Watchmen” Panel to announce that he is doing a comic adaptation of his forthcoming movie Django Unchained for the publisher.
“The comic will literally be the first draft of the script!” MTV Geek’s twitter page quotes Tarantino as saying.

At this early date there’s no word on the art front. Might I suggest Ramon Perez, fresh off his Eisner haul from Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand?
Oh hey, here’s video of the announcement:
