Cast Party: Who Should Star in a ‘Dinosaur Comics’ Movie?

ElleCollins_CastParty

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comics adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week we're looking at a webcomic for the first time, and in fact it's one of the most respected and long running comics on the web, Ryan North's Dinosaur Comics.

Now you my be wondering how it would be possible to make an entertaining movie out of a web comic in which each installment has the exact same artwork with only the dialogue changed. Honestly, I wonder that too. That's why I would hire Phil Lord and Christopher Miller to write and direct this movie. As the team behind Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, and The Lego Movie, they have a proven track record of making very funny films out of material that ought to be disastrous. So let's get them talking to Mr. North, and see what they can figure out.

Literature’s Deep Debt: Ten Literary Luminaries Who Love Comics

From FreeForAll, by Margaret Atwood and Christian Ward
From FreeForAll, by Margaret Atwood and Christian Ward

Comics are often set in opposition to “serious” literature, but that convention is one that has long been flouted by highly esteemed, award-winning authors who grew up reading comic books and aren’t ashamed to talk about their continued love for the medium. Some of them have even tried their hand at writing comics, or have populated their novels with characters who are cartoonists.

Here are ten literary luminaries who have close relationships with comics. Some may surprise you --- but a few won't come as much of a shock! Most are living; some are literary giants that we've lost. Together they represent a diverse swath of the globe. Something they all have in common is excellence: Among these ten writers are three National Book Award winners, two Pulitzer Prize winners, two Mann Booker Award winners, two Nobel Prize Laureates, one MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient, one National Humanities Medal recipient, one Officer of the French Legion of Honor, and one knight!

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a ‘Warlord’ Movie?

ElleCollins_CastParty

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week is inspired by my firm belief that there aren't enough sword and sandal movies being made anymore. With that in mind, let's imagine a film version of Warlord, Mike Grell's fantasy classic that ran from 1976 to 1989 at DC Comics.

Before Batman: The 10 Best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Crossovers

tmnt-batman-feat

This week DC launches Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the unlikely crossover series that brings IDW Publishing's current iteration of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's TMNT characters together with DC's Dark Knight; one of the biggest success stories in creator-owned comics meeting one of the most famous corporate comics brands.

Batman and the Turtles have relatively little in common, but the Turtles have been teaming up with comic book characters far beyond their home milieu pretty much since their first appearance. In fact, the characters are so weird at their core that there's really no setting, genre, or comic book character that they can't fit in with. When discordance is in your DNA, you can't clash with anything. So on the week of their team up with the Caped Crusader, what better time to revisit some of the Turtles' greatest comic book crossovers?
