DreamWorks Animation Hires New ‘Maintenance’

Sneaking in one last deal before Hollywood shuts down, DreamWorks Animation has picked up the movie rights to Maintenance, an Oni Press comic book, nabbing it out of turnaround from Warner Bros. The comic, published by Oni in December, 2006, followed the exploits of two janitors who work for TerroMax, Inc., the world’s biggest and best evil science think tank. When they’re not dealing with toxic spill monsters and menial time machine repairs, they have to contend with their boss, a multitude of mad scientists, jetpack-equipped cavemen, alien repomen, and the cute girl who works at reception The comic was written by Jim Massey and illustrated by Robbi Rodriguez.
