Just a quick note - Green Lantern is currently in development.  Supposedly, anyway.  It'll be very difficult to adapt into a movie, I think.  There's so much background required.

The last Green lantern news I heard was they were making it a humorous version starring Jack Black.  I hope it was just a hoax, sort of like back in the 1970s when rumors went around that "Fonzie" had died . . .

There is one I would like to see a film version of, "Deathlock, the Demolisher".

Dennis:  I've read articles about plans for a Deathlok movie . . . not sure how accurate they are.  And even if they are true, we are probably 3 or 4 years away at best.

So all anyone wants to see are comic book super hero movies? No one wants to see great comics like IRONWOOD, COCAINE COMIX, XXXENOPHILE (this would make a great anthology series), SAPPHIRE, or CHERRY POPTART Wink get made into a movie.  Fine.  How about. .

CLIMAXXX
THE ASS-MEN (Great spoof.  The X-men as Donkeys!)
XXXWOMEN (Not so great comic but a good spoofy idea.)
SCIMIDAR
ARION

Dito on "Usagi Yojimbo", I also agree (obviously) on a animated movie. Wouldn't have to follow the books letter by letter, though.

Personally, I think "Preacher" would make a great movie, with lots of potential for sequels.

In contrast, although I like the books, I think "Strangers in paradise" wouldn't work as a movie....

Kester brought up XXXenophile, so I wanted to post an image of theirs from my favorite cover. Considering the image, I'm shocked that this was the only one I could find of it in a web search...

Phil Foglio, the comic book artist on XXXenophile, has been around for quite a while.  My exposure to his strips came from Dragon magazine, where they were far from adult material, which is how I ended up reading the series.  It's probably one of the best quality adult comics I've ever come across.  That it's an anthology series, with many of it's stories have Twilight Zone-ish twists, just makes it all the more astounding.

On a related note there used to be a movie review site called Galaxy of Terror (gone now) that used to have screen caps of a movie they simply referred to as "Dino Porn" that sounded like a total rip-off of the story pictured.  Could be the Europeans already adapted some of the stories from XXXenophile.  I know their was supposed to be an adaptation of the Butterscotch comic series, for French TV (?), but from what little I've heard about it it wasn't that great.

Can't remember the comic you'd like to mention here?  Wouldn't it be great if there were a site with comic cover scans you could browse? 

Guess what, there is!  Here's what I turned up for Xxxenophile. .


And now a few other comic series Hollyweird could adapt but probably wont, the bass turds!  ;)




(Simple time travel tale with a TZ twist.)




(Anthology series.)




(Long live spandex!)


(Never seen this one but it sounds like a winner to me.)

And here's some of the comics I've mentioned previously. .

Moon Knight was mentioned.  Thumbup

I'd like to see Cloak and Dagger and maybe Jack of Hearts.

but above and beyond all, I wanna see someone with the grapes to tackle Groo the Wanderer as a live action film

Cloak and Dagger would rule as a movie!
