I recently caught up with Rest, a sci-fi comic about people who take a drug that allows them to live without sleep. Originally, only a couple of issues had been released. However, last week, the rest of the story was published with the previous issues in a trade paperback, which is something very special.

Deadline reports that the actor, lifelong¬†comic book fan and recently minted comic book creator is set to star in a television adaptation of Rest, the comic book series he co-created with his Divide Pictures producing partner Russ Cundiff. Ventimiglia’s latest project sees him returning to familiar territory on two fronts: not only is Rest a comics-based series similar to the superhero-themed Heroes, but the TV show will air on NBC, the network that once housed the recently canceled series. Ventimiglia and Cundiff are both serving as executive producers on the project alongside Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins from Top Cow, the comic book company responsible for publishing Rest. Smallville writer Philip Levens has been tapped to adapt the comic book for the small screen.
