We’ve seen a glimpse of Peter Serafinowicz in the weirdly textured super-suit. We’ve heard from creator Ben Edlund about why he’s coming back to his signature creation.

Ben Edlund has a great laugh. Several of them, actually. One of them sounds like the sarcastic giggle of a skinny kid who used to insult his tormentors in ways that they wouldn’t even understand. There’s another kind of tittering that rings with nostalgia, as he thinks about elements from previous adaptations of The…
