So I was wondering the other day which comic creators have had the most success in being adapted for the big screen. As Marvel and DC adaptations are such a mix of the work of so many creators I am ignoring those and looking at stuff that’s more clearly individually created (so bad luck for Stan Lee, Kirby, Chris Claremont etc) . So I came up with:
Mark Millar: Wanted, Kick Ass 1 & 2, Kingsman 1 & 2 - 5
Alan Moore - Constantine, V for Vendetta, Watchmen, LoEG, From Hell - 5 (Constantine arguable by my rules)
Frank Miller - 300 1 & 2, Sin City 1 & 2 - 4
Daniel Clowes - Ghost World, Art School Confidential, Wilson - 3
Dave Gibbons - Watchmen, Kingsman 1 & 2 - 3
I am being a bit English language centred here, there are anime adaptations and stuff like Asterix too. I feel I may be missing out someone obvious.
(They need to at least be in production, for example Millar has loads of stuff optioned but Kingsman 2 is a done deal with a trailer and release date).
