Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
Superheroes are back! Since the 1970s, the film world has found inspiration in comic books and graphic novels. Now, no summer is complete without a major blockbuster movie based on a comic, including Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, X-Men, Men in Black, Daredevil, and The Hulk. Modern special effects have made large-scale superhero epics possible, while the diversity of the comics being published has made for a wide variety of subjects, as evidenced by Ghost World, From Hell, Akira, and Road to Perdition. This book details 20 key titles, covering every step of the development from comic book panel to feature film frame. It includes interviews with key creative artists about the evolution of the films from the original comics, and speculates about future films. It explains development, production, sequels, and spin-offs, and analyzes the huge success of the Superman and Batman franchises and such misfires as Mystery Men and Dick Tracy.
