Thread: Comic Adaptations

  1. #1

    Comic Adaptations

    From book and film TO comics, not the reverse.

    Which have you loved, which have you hated?

    My all time favorite is probably ALIEN adapted by Walt Simonson, one of the few people in the industry I think capable of both the mundane and outrageous aspects of that film.

    If you ever see the original print of this, BUY it, it's actually as good as the movie!

    While not a direct movie-to-comics, I enjoyed the Robocop vs Terminator series.

    I really liked the Terminator adaptations inthe early 90s. I think those were from Dark Horse.

    I also loved the Marvel Star Wars Comics.

    The original Aliens vs Predators mini series by Dark Horse is still better then anything that they've done in the movies.

    The Bruce Jones/Al Williamson adaptation of FLASH GORDON is better than the movie -- keeps all the visual spectacle, but removes a lot of the self-conscious silliness.

    David Mazzuchelli's adaptation of Paul Auster's CITY OF GLASS is pretty awesome.

    P. Craig Russell's opera adaptations are all terrific. I especially like SALOME.

    Jack Chick's Bible adaptations are WAY funnier than the original!

    CutterMike, you just reminded me that I need to buy Darwyn Cooke's adaptation of The Hunter.

    I like the Dark Horse earlier Star Wars comics from the 90's like Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi. And the Mara Jade Mini they did. But after George screwed up everything by rewriting canon, I stopped paying attention to the Star Wars Comics.

    Mara Jade.

    Always liked her.

    Heard they killed her off in the novels.
