“Boondocks” on the telly?

Just last week at Bookslut, Jessa Crispin linked to a Slate article that considers which comic strip will define this decade. “One word: Boondocks,” Ms. Crispin said.

Now, I’m not nearly as well-versed in the world of comics and graphic novels as the Bookslut proprietress, but I too admire “Boondocks.” (Another favorite of mine: “La Cucaracha.”)

I’m not sure how to feel about this news from Variety today: “Fox has combed ‘The Boondocks’ to find its next major animated project [and] ordered a pilot presentation last week for a potential series based on the edgy comicstrip by Aaron McGruder.” (Via Romanesko.)
