We live in an age where comic books are a major source of television and cinematic entertainment.
In light of this, I would like to submit my "Top Four List of Graphic Novels to Adapt" For this list, I'm going to focus on stand-alone stories that have no connections to mainstream comic book series (ie- no Batman story arc, no Marvel "What If?" stories, etc).
2. "From Hell" by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell. I know it's already been made as a less than stellar Johnny Depp film- but I put it on my list, because it is a fascinating graphic novel about Jack the Ripper. Instead of a movie, though, I would be inclined to do it as a mini/maxi series on TV.
3. "Trillium" by Jeff Lemire. This is a well written Sci-Fi story about two lovers trying to cross time to be together... and possibly save the world. This would also be great as a TV mini-series.
4. "Apocalypse Nerd" by Peter. Baggeman. A fairly short read about a small group of nuclear apocalypse survivors doing their best to adapt to the new world.
So, there we have four graphic novels that I think should be adapted. What do you think?
