It’s a sitcom-esque story about a reformed superhero comic collector named Jared who wants to sell a back issue of a ‘90s-era comic called Killstrike on eBay. The former lead singer of the band White Zombie, he is also a successful director of horror films, an occasional actor, a producer, and a comic book writer. Like many of the people on this list, Gibson released a song meant to accompany the comic; it was even sold on iTunes with a motion-comic edition of his tale.
Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini play with the form and concepts of adaptation in clever ways, making this one of the best comic book movies of all time, regardless of genre or classification. Each week, we do something different such as comic book swaps; watching films; marathons; workshops for those who want to develop skills to help them create their own comic books or novels; debates; joint sessions with other societies; and so on and so forth. Some of these refer to the film and comic book industry, rather than to films or comics as a medium.
Simone’s Batgirl comic introduced Alysia Yeoh, the first transgender character in a mainstream superhero book. Simone, who is currently working on a number of comic titles for DC and Vertigo, as well as unannounced film and television projects, is not worried about DeConnick’s future. Fancy that!-the power of wild, middling production values coupled with untrammeled creativity to speak simple, direct truths that touch your heart and free your mind.

Comics books are the paper they are printed on. There is a tactile pleasure to be had from holding one in your hands, turning the pages. By comparison comic book writers and artists get paid much less, even the very well-known ones. Still, by comparison, the central team in comic books creates the core of the artistic work for much less financial reward than with the film industry.
