What classic books would you like to see adapated into comic form? I would read 1984 and Slaughter House 5, assuming the adaptations are good.

Boom Studios are finishing their comic of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? I really loved this adaptation. The market is there for more of these types of books.

At one point I wanted to animate a scene from Brave New World. As a comic, I can see it translated as everything from Kirby to Moebius to Paul Pope.

I would love shadow of the colossus drawn by bill sienkiewicz or geoff darrow. Also No More Heroes by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely.

But bookwise. Naked lunch with multiple famous artists.

Maybe something like Odysseus' adventures, from before the Trojan War to the end of the Odyssey. Really explore the bastard side of him, like when he threw Hector's infant son to his death, or how he just chilled out with all these women for years at a time instead of finishing the journey home. Hell, there's lots of little nuggets like that, and going in depth would probably be better than a miniseries that's just exposition, famous event, exposition, famous event...

Are you referencing Age of Bronze?

I enjoy that book.

One of my all-time favorite novels is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald , and for some reason I see Kyle Baker doing a pitch-perfect version of it.

Also, the works of T.S. Eliot by R. Crumb, Charles Bruns, or Chris Ware. How much more bleak can "The Wasteland" be? Have either of these artists draw it is how.

How about an adaptation of Harry Chapin's song "The Rock" (http://www.nakedgrapecomics.com/8155.html)?
