8 great comic book movies with no superheroes in sight

6 March 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Comic book movies are often seen as the domain of spandex-clad demigods who battle moustache-twirling villains, but if 300 and Sin City - which both originated on the pages of Frank Miller works - are anything to go by they're not essential to telling a great story.

With sequels to 300 and Sin City incoming, we take a look at 8 great examples of comic book-inspired films with no superheroes in sight.

Sin City (2005)

Co-directed by comic creator Miller and digital filmmaking pioneer Robert Rodriguez, this adaptation stayed faithful to the source material, with the filmmakers shooting actors on green screen and rendering the locations - almost exactly how they appeared on the page - in post-production.

With an all-star cast, ranging from Bruce Willis to Mickey Rourke, and interlocking narratives, this was Pulp Fiction for the comic book movie geek crowd.

Ghost World (2001)

Long before he was jousting with Shia Labeouf, comics »

Dredding L.A.: Douglas Wolk & Ulises Farinas talk about Mega-City Two

3 February 2014 8:01 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Douglas Wolk and Ulises Farinas about bringing the swift justice of Judge Dredd to the West Coast...

Douglas Wolk“My grandmother was an incredible painter, and my father sculpted on the weekends for many years and recently took it up again,” states Douglas Wolk who is a Portland, Oregon-based author and critic.  “Sadly, I didn't inherit their aptitude for visual art.”  Comic books were initially a childhood fascination.  “I started reading them in earnest when I was 9, although I'd probably read a bunch before that and never stopped.”  Blockbuster success at the box office has had an impact on the comic book industry.   “I've certainly seen a lot of comics in the past 10 years or so that are clearly movie or TV pitches, which tends to make for mediocre-at-best comics.  I've heard that some comics publishers tend to reserve at least some chunk of other-media rights even for ostensibly creator-owned work. »
