Batman Blink Best Comic

The Best Batman Comic No One Ever Talks About


‘The Dark Knight Returns.’ Yawn. ‘The Long Halloween.’ Snooze. ‘Batman: Blink’ is what Matt Reeves should read before making the next Batman sequel.

Reckless Friend Of The Devil

‘Reckless’ is a Mean Bastard Noir Waiting to Be Franchised


Reckless, the new graphic novel series from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips, is aching for cinematic adaptation. We suggest how to get it done.

Godzilla Vs Kong Kongzilla

‘Kongzilla’ Must Come After ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’


In our latest Pitch Meeting column, we surmise that the only threat worthy of a ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ sequel rests in a comic book oddity from the 1990s.

graphic novel Dracula Motherf**ker

‘Dracula Motherf**ker’ Redefines the Monster and Demands Adaptation


The Image Comics graphic novel from Alex de Campi and Erica Henderson returns the Count to his classic monster status.

Fire Power Kirkman Samnee

The New Comic Book Series ‘Fire Power’ Already Demands Adaptation


We dig into the new comic from Robert Kirkman and Chris Samnee to uncover how a simultaneous film and TV adaptation could work.

Lady Killer Comic Book

‘Lady Killer’ is the Cathartic Comic Adaptation We Sickos Desire


Mixing ‘Leave it to Beaver’ fantasy with cold-blooded ritual, ‘Lady Killer’ is a dementedly dark comic book screaming for adaptation.

Jack Kirby Biography

Jack Kirby Demands Cinematic Justice


We imagine an adaptation of the new Tom Scioli graphic novel that rights decades of creative and financial mistreatment.

The Amazing Screw On Head

More Than a Decade After its Failed Pilot, Let’s Reconsider ‘The Amazing Screw-On Head’


Why can’t studios let Bryan Fuller have nice things? The Mike Mignola comic book should have been Fuller’s masterpiece adaptation.

Usagi Yojimbo Stan Sakai

Someone Should Jump on a ‘Usagi Yojimbo’ Adaptation


With streamers gobbling up weirdo comic book properties all over the place, Stan Sakai’s glorious Akira Kurosawa love-letter waits patiently.
