Re: IGN.com puts up their top ten movies. that would make a good comic book
I totally agree with some of their selections...
#9 The Transporter
It's a brilliant set-up for a comic (or a BMW commercial) -- A skilled combatant transports things. While the movie tends to limit this to cars, the comic has no budget and therefore the idea of transportation can be a bit broader. With Morrision at the helm, there are certain to be some interesting items being couriered around the globe.
Dream Writer: Grant Morrison
Dream Artist: Jim Lee
Most def!!!! This would immediately go into my pull list!!! Nothing but pointless over-the-top action.......
#8 Bourne Again
Rather than following the novels/movies directly, Warren Ellis takes the premise of a highly-coveted covert operative who's lost his memory. Trouble is, as he begins to piece together his life, he finds that he hates the man he once was. Alex Maleev's art provides the kinetic feeling of the movie's trademark shaky cam.
Dream Writer: Warren Ellis
Dream Artist: Alex Maleev
Obviously with Ellis writing...the story is golden!!!
#3 Kill for Bill
This ongoing series is destined for Frank Miller's hands. Before you Miller-detractors freak out, consider that Frank has done some stellar work with ronin in the past. This is Frank's chance to follow the life of a warrior before falling from grace, with the foresight that somewhere deep down in Beatrix Kiddo's soul, there is a part of her that will defy her master in the future.
Dream Writer: Frank Miller
Dream Artist: Frank Miller
I think Miller would be perfect for writing this. Especially with arcs by "special guest writer" Tarantino. And while I do love Miller's art....I would go for someone else like Immomen. His bright color and over the top animation would be better suited. But that's just my opinion....
#1 Pulp Fiction
"Mine's the comic book that says 'Bad Muthaf---er' on the cover." From the minds of Brian Bendis and Howard Chaykin comes a fast-talking, episodic noir comic book that features appearances by characters from Pulp Fiction. However, new characters also spotlight this series, which offers hard-hitting tales of LA criminals and is infused with pop-culture sensibilities. Sex, violence and a foot massage for $2.99.
Dream Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Dream Artist: Howard Chaykin
Bendis is the master of ramble. Although I'm not sure if the series would be different stories intertwining at once or issues/arcs covering just one story? Hmmmm....... :?
Now while I love all those choices above...here are a couple of my choices:
= We all know that a script is being written for the upcoming "Ocean's 13".......but what about a continuation in the comic books in the form of a miniseries? I'm having a hard time coming up with the actual reason they would all get back together again...but a miniseries rotating around a heist could be an interesting concept.
Dream Writer: Brian Bendis and Steven Sodenberg
Dream Artist: Adam Kubert
= Based on Robert Rodriguez's "Mariachi" trilogy....this series would follow the life of El as he battles whatever baddies Mexico can produce. No real continuity. Just a series of stand alone arcs....like Punisher MAX. It would be similar to a Zorro as El wants to just disappear....but the people need his help.
Dream Writer: Garth Ennis
Dream Artist: Steve McNiven
Man on Fire
= The story of John Creasy during his CIA days. Case after case...problem after problem. All of this would be leading up to his breakdown and quitting the CIA. All events would take place prior to the movie.
Dream Writer: Ennis
Dream Artist: Deodato
= The rise of Maximus. This too would be a prequel. It would follow the exploits of Maximus as he rises thru the ranks of the Roman army.
Dream Writer: Mark Millar
Dream Artist: Lenil Yu
