Last week, Keanu Reeves announced a comic book he wrote and starred in. The immortal warrior Berzerker is based on his own image and behavior. And did you know that several other actors also had their endeavors at Nona Arte? After all, it is not a bad idea, since associating a genre or character from the cinema to popularity in pop culture helps a lot to promote the material.
Below is a list of ten stars who jumped from the big screen to the role – either as plot creators, screenwriters, or models.
1. Stormy Daniels
Although best known for her career as an award-winning adult film actress and for alleged involvement with Donald Trump, Stormy teamed up with comic book publisher TidalWave and created the “naughty” humor and science fiction title Stormy Daniels: Space Force, co-signed by her herself and by Darren G. Davis.

The protagonist, Sophia Ortiz, is based on herself.
The series was co-written by David Atchison and the rights to adapt were sold to A&E in 2012. Since then, it has remained in a “development” stage.
6. Keanu Reeves
Well, we already quoted Reeves at the beginning and included him on the list for those who don’t know the story. He recently partnered with Boom! Studios to launch BRZRKR, co-written by Matt Kindt and illustrated by Alessandro Vitti and Bill Crabtree – with one of the covers signed by the Brazilian Rafael Grampá.
BRZRKR tells the story of an immortal warrior who at present works as an agent of the United States government – and, of course, keeps many “skeletons in the closet” because of a violent past. The launch is scheduled for October.
7. Samuel L. Jackson
Nick Fury from Marvel Studios likes to get involved in all kinds of nerdy projects. And, of course, with the ease with which he dialogues with his fans, the actor also took the opportunity to create his own HQ. Cold Space, launched by Boom! Studios was co-written with Eric S. Calderon, producer of Afro Samurai Resurrection, with art by Jeremy Rock.
The plot has the Jackson-based protagonist and tells the story of a fleeing space criminal, who must adapt to survive when an accident hits a world in the midst of civil war.

One of Monty Python’s co-founders released a graphic novel about Superman in 2004 by DC Comics. Superman: True Brit was co-written alongside Kim “Howard” Johnson, with drawings by the legendary John Byrne. The title came out along the line that explores alternative realities, DC Elseworlds, and, of course, has Cleese’s acid humor spread across the pages of the work.
Everything revolves around the following question: What if baby Superman had fallen in England instead of Smallville, Kansas?

10. Mark Hamill
Well, this one has lived in the nerdy field since he first appeared as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars. From his appearances on the Simpsons to his iconic Joker voice in Warner’s animations, Hamill is very fond of moving into this entertainment industry. In 1996, he created a limited series at Dark Horse.
