Comic Book Movies Summary

Comic Book Movies: Virgin Film by David Hughes

Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, X-Men, Men in Black, Daredevil, The Hulk - since the 1970s, the film world has increasingly turned to comic books and graphic novels for inspiration. These days no summer is complete without a major blockbuster movie based on a comic. Modern special effects have made large-scale superhero epics possible, but the diversity of the comics being published has made for a wide variety of subjects, as evidenced by "Ghost World", "From Hell", "Akira" and "Road to Perdition". This book looks at 20 key titles in detail, covering every stage of the journey from comic book panel to feature film frame, including development, production, sequels and spin-offs. From the huge success of the "Superman" and "Batman" franchises, to misfires such as "Mystery Men" and "Dick Tracy" and speculation about future films, the book includes interviews with key creative artists about the development of the movies from the original comics.
