Chris made me look like I can draw with his INKS OF AWESOME.

This article is relevant to my interests.

In the wake of Watchmen: 24 more graphic novels we’d like to see made into movies

I'm not turning this into a meme. (Although I turned it into a shopping list a bit.) I do want to say a few things about it, though.

8. Craig Thompson, Blankets
I can't believe the people in the comments are saying Thompson's art isn't expressive enough to be translated to animation. That's just bullshit. I think this would be best as an animated movie, really. It COULD work as live action (with some special effects for the dream sequences) but I think animation would better achieve the dreamlike, expressive quality of the work.

9. Brian K. Vaughan, Runaways
HOLLYWOOD PLEASE DON'T SCREW THIS UP. ALSO DON'T TURN NICO WHITE. OR GERTRUDE THIN.

12. Neil Gaiman, The Sandman: Season Of Mists
I agree wholeheartedly with their assertion, in fact I ALWAYS thought that if Sandman was ever going to come to the big screen, they should start with this story and not with the first two volumes. I mean, it opens with The Endless, who are really the big draw of the series. I think it's the perfect starting point, honestly. And I like their Guillermo del Toro suggestion. Hey, we're in a fantasy world, right?

16. Dave Sim, Cerebus: High Society
... Really?

22. Charles Burns, Black Hole
Parts of the graphic novel annoyed me, but I got to admit I'm kind of depressed they junked Gaiman's script for it. Unless it totally sucks. Then you can ignore me.

24. Alan Moore, The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen
LOL! Actually, if they just ... y'know, adapted the second volume as is and ignored the first movie I'd be happy about that.
