Yes, Comic Books Are Literature Too!

When I was very young, it was generally believed that comics were just casual pursuits for kids. Well, the world has changed, and comics are now the source of material for blockbuster movies and TV shows.

Comic book conventions attract tens of thousands of visitors, including major figures from the entertainment industry.

So what are your favorites? Regular comics? Graphic novels?

Speak and you'll be heard. :)

Grayson is fluent in Spanish -- he's already spent time in Spain and will do a work assignment for the Spanish government in Madrid this coming year. Maybe I should ask him to check it out.

I like how that Film " Unbreakable " deals with the subject of comics being pure Literature.
That was one of M. Night's better films. And Bruce Willis is always underrated as an actor, and he's done some terrific work.

I agree I watched " The Happening " last week and wasnt too impressed I thought it was ok but nothing to write home about.

I love " Unbreakable " and "Signs " though.

He's in a slump. His later work doesn't match the older stuff. I hope that changes, because there's an incredible talent there.

Yes He's definatley a breath of Fresh Air to come out of Hollywood in recent years. Even his not so good Films have atleast interesting stories behind them.

Alan Moore's revamp of Swamp Thing, Miracle Man and The Phantom Stranger., Frank Miller's Daredevil. I'm also fond of Jeffry Comb's take on The Question in JLA TAS.
