After reading the reviews for Terminator: Salvation, director McG learned a lot about horror in print. In fact, we’re sure that his spine is tingling to this very day. Still, you can’t just grab your ball and go home, and the man has some new stuff cooking.

MaggieDeadline reports that McG’s Wonderland Sound and Vision has launched a new comic and graphic novel imprint to create transmedia properties out of original ideas. The first title will be Haunted City, based on an idea by screenwriter Chap Taylor.

The comic, written by Taylor and Wonderland’s Peter Johnson, is a dark, supernatural story set in major cities around the world, with New York the venue for the first comic. It will be published by Wonderland in association with Aspen Comics.

It will simultaneously be developed into a feature script that McG (pictured right) hopes to direct, as well as a TV pilot that Wonderland will executive produce. A video game is also in the works.

Look for more soon.
