Happy Friday readers and followers!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you must have heard about the record-breaking film “The Avengers” which hit box offices last weekend. The Marvel film left the existing highest-grossing films in the dust, even ousting fan-favored mook “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” for the #1 spot. Comic books are no stranger to the box office, with movies like “The Dark Knight” and “Transformers” topping the charts in the past decade.
I’ve never been much of a graphic novel person, having only read Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and its succeeding film for a writing class in college. I’ve heard of fantastic adaptations like Watchmen and V for Vendetta by Alan Moore and am somewhat familiar with the most popular comic book movies, but it had never occurred to me to approach these stories as traditional mooks. It has been brought to my attention by a few people and I am curious – would you, my readers, be interested in this? Take the poll below and let me know!
