Hawaiian Dick is a comic book created by writer B. Clay Moore and artist Steven Griffin, and published by Image Comics. The first Hawaiian Dick mini-series hit comic shops in December of 2002, and was subsequently followed in late 2003 by a second four issue mini-series called Hawaiian Dick: the Last Resort. The second series ran into numerous publication delays, but was completed in July of 2006.
The trade paperback collecting the second mini-series was published in October 2006.
The comic book received extensive media attention upon its arrival, including favorable reviews in Entertainment Weekly and Publishers Weekly. In 2004, Hawaiian Dick was optioned by New Line Cinema for development as a feature film. Screenwriters Mark Swift and Damian Shannon (Freddy vs. Jason) were signed on to develop a screenplay. The option was subsequently renewed in 2006, at which time director Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy, Click) was tabbed to direct the film, although no movement toward actual casting and production has been made.
Artist and colorist Steven Griffin was nominated for the 2003 Russ Manning Award for his work on the book, and subsequently received three separate Eisner Award nominations for Best Colorist for Hawaiian Dick, receiving those nominations in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
Moore has recently announced plans for a monthly Hawaiian Dick title, with artist Scott Chantler slated to illustrate the lead stories.
Hawaiian Dick appeared on the Wizard Top 100 Trade Paperbacks of the Wizard Era, clocking in at number 92. In an article on WeAreAtomik.com talking about making the list, B. Clay Moore confesses to being Atomik.
