Wow, that was an awkward title. Yes, Gahan Wilson's Eddy Deco, the 1940s style private eye battiling people who turn into giant squids and crab, is getting adapted. Mix a touch of Jonathan Lethem with colorful weirdness and we will hopefully get something pretty amazing, because I'm really not impressed with this first image, which looks like a kiddie animation.

Here's a little description of what we might expect:
Eddy Deco is a '40s type P.I. in the Sam Spade tradition, who is hired by Tracy McEstings to find her missing husbanda minor hoodand finds himself involved in a ludicrous caper that gets zanier as the story develops. Eddy's search leads him to underground caverns and Chinese torturers, Damon Runyonesque hoods and villains who have a disconcerting habit of turning into giant crabs or squids.

Concept still and some artwork after the break.
