Just who would you like to see adapt which book of any genre - I shouldn't have brought fantasy into it.


Dave McKean to adapt Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

McKean on Ondaatje's In the Skin of a Lion.
Allred on Crying of Lot 49.
Sienkiewicz on Gravity's Rainbow.
Mignola on Ulysses!
Carla Speed McNeil on Mrs. Dalloway.

Trying to think up booky books that I like and coming up with the same favorites I've been listing for the past 5 years makes me realize I should probably read more and that I've never read any fun books.

Alfredo Alcala drawing Heart Of Darkness -- he's great at all that claustrophobic jungle stuff.

(remember Metalzoic?)

unfortunately, yes.

How about "Pride & Prejudice", drawn by Rob Liefeld?

"But Mr. Darcy! I cannot marry a man with no feet, think of the scandal! In addition, your bossoms are most unnatural."

Art Adams could do a fine job on various H Ryder Haggard style Victorian tales of derring-do.

Bob Burden on Ubu Roi.

The Jazz Guide to Penguins on Compact Disc (Rock Hardy), Wednesday, 24 May 2006 02:52 (fourteen years ago) link

eight years pass...


I remember a similar thread on the old Comics Journal forum. The only suggestions I remember were Corben doing Heart Of Darkness and P Craig Russell on Ayn Rand's books.

Picked up BALLADS with art from Charles Vess, writers like Neil Gaiman and Charles DeLint adapting folk ballads. The ballads are creepy as hell and considerable liberties are taken in adaptation, which is all to the good. The art is wonderful. The recommended discography at the end makes this book feel ten or twenty years older than it is ('97).

I had an older version of this. I think Vess did multiple versions of some of these?

Robert Adam Gilmour, Friday, 22 March 2019 21:01 (one year ago) link

Well shoot, you're right and now I want to read the version with Three Lovers.

I had two different versions of Alison Gross, might have even used completely different drawings by him.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Saturday, 23 March 2019 10:15 (one year ago) link

I think one was from Frank Frazetta Illustrated.
