    It seems like Hollywood is churning out comic book movies as fast as possible. What comics or graphic novels would you love to see on the big screen?
    I'll start:

    From DC:
    Lobo
    Manhunter (the 70's Archie Goodwin/ Walt Simonson version, not the Martian)
    Ronin - Frank Miller

    From Marvel:
    Doctor Strange
    Silver Surfer (A nicely done version would be great)

    They really need to make a new Spawn movie. The last one did not do the comic justice, and with the superior special effects now, this could be amazing.

    Yessss. I completely agree. The soundtrack was amazing, but damn, that movie was horrible. They need to do a nice R-rated version for sure.

    I want to see a well done, R rated Sandman or Death (both by Neil Gaiman). I think Death was in the works at one point. Could've been rumors.

    Also, Bill Willingham's Fables would be bad ass as well.
    I just love DC's Vertigo...

    As much as I would love to see Sandman or Death, I don't think Hollywood could ever do them justice.

    Just thought of another couple of titles, though they are a little obscure. Anyone remember Savage Henry or The Post Bros ?
