Showdown

Comic Book

Best films adapted from comic books

Add a list or tag with showdown:comicbook

Holy showdown, Batman! It’s manga madness! This is the big one, people. The hardest ask. The greatest invitation for controversy in Letterboxd Showdown history (so far). Name your top 10 comic book adaptations. Yes. Ten great graphic novels on film. But only 10 (we’ll ignore positions 11 and above when calculating the results). So that means not just tagging an old list of 100 ranked adaptations. It means taking stock of everything that makes for a successful transfer from graphic panel to silver screen: who embodied the characters best; how well the artwork translated; if the spirit of the dialogue remained intact; and whether it was weird enough or just watered down.
