The Office fans are in for a treat as one of the most beloved episodes of the series, ‘Threat Level Midnight’ gets its own graphic novel. Threat Level Midnight is the home movie made by Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell. The episode in question shows the entire office sitting down to watch the movie in the conference room.
The home movie follows Michael Scarn, a spy for the government dealing with the death of his wife, Catherine Zeta-Scarn, who was killed by Golden Face played by John Krasinski. The 25-minute masterpiece takes Michael Scott 11 years to complete. The script for the spy-thriller can be seen at Michael’s desk in season 2, but it isn’t until season 7 that the joke is brought back and completed for the audience. The whole movie stars all his office colleges and makes for good laughs as they all try their best to act out his awkwardly written dialogue.
The Office, a comedy series starring Steve Carell, is known for its well-written awkward comedy, with episodes having the perfect balance of cringe-worthy adventures, perfect comedic timing, and heartfelt moments.
Now, Threat Level Midnight will be adapted as a graphic novel for The Office fans who love the show. Although unclear about the story, we can expect it to be just as awkwardly written as it was on the show. The book can be preordered right now on dundermiflinpaper.com for $40. It is set to release in late 2021 and will be approximately 60 pages long.
This isn’t the first graphic novel from the show. Last year, Who Comics published Adventures of Jimmy Halpert, the real-life copy of the comic that Pam draws for Jim on the show. There is also other merchandise like Stanley Hudson-inspired crossword puzzles and even the Dundie Awards available on the website.
It’s safe to say that The Office fans will have a lot to entertain themselves with even after finishing the show. Are you excited about the upcoming graphic novel? Let us know!
