Question of the Month (by LeifJones):
"I think there's a prevailing opinion out there that adapting comix into another medium gives comix validity, while I happen to think it's really presenting an opposite view to the audience at large: that comix may contain good ideas, but aren't REALLY worthwile until they're made into a medium more highly regarded (films) or more popular (video games). You may or may not agree with my statement above, but the point I'm getting to is this: what adaptations of comix aren't redundant? What adaptations (whether they're good or not) actually rework the material and make it something unique to its own medium? (question asked by LeifJones on the tcj BB, 7/12/06)

Comment of the Month (by Jaz!)
"Come to think of it--especially in the pre-home video days [when the idea of being able to OWN a movie a few months after release was unheard of, making being able to "relive" a story through reading a much greater novelty], making blockbuster movies into novels was pretty much standard course of action, so I would not be surprised if one could turn up novelizations of, say, FLASH GORDON, THE PHANTOM [I remember seeing some other Phantom novel decades before the Billy Zane vehicle, too], BUCK ROGERS, DICK TRACY, ANNIE, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, etc." (comment posted by Jaz! on the tcj BB, 10/2/06)
