Alex Maidy and JoBlo.com posted their choices for the Top 10 Comic Books That Should Become R-Rated Movies. By now you know how this game is played. Using just their list I present my top three choices…
- Goon by Eric Powell: Set in a universe that has all sorts of supernatural monsters and our hero Goon. Definitely a tongue-in-cheek comic series full of fun. The Goon was part of a Kickstarter campaign (and I was in!) but a movie hasn’t been made yet. The promotional video looked great though.
- Pax Romana: Although I never read this series, I’m going to have to look it up. Who wouldn’t want to see a “world where The Vatican discovers time travel and sends modern weapons back to Ancient Rome to change the future”?
- Black Widow: A former Russian spy/assassin now in the US. Think of Atomic Blonde or A Long Kiss Goodnight, now you’re on board, right?
Other series that didn’t make the list but would be excellent candidates: 100 Bullets by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso; Sleeper by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips; Gravedigger by Chris Mills and Rick Burchett, Polar by Victor Santos and Scout by Tim Truman.
