Hey guys I just posted this question in another forum and decided to post it here too. Could never get enough feedback. Do you think its a good idea to make books based off comic stories? I know that the vice versa has been done many times where comics were done off books* More recently its been book-> movie-> comic based off movie lol.
Anyway I've been wondering if it makes sense to make a book version from a comic. Even if the story is essentially the same. Do you think its a good idea? And if you've seen this already do you mind giving a few examples?
I think it's a lame idea. It's just retelling the story without the benefits of a visual interface. Or in other words, it's like hearing the Lone Ranger on the Radio, compared to watching it on TV. It's a bad idea.
I do think that it would be cool to have a comic book have the ability to show a larger amount of the internal ticking of a superhero, but I would only read it if the creator of the superhero wrote it.
I do not know of a comic to book that has worked, but here is a book to comic that I think proves that a good story can have multiple mediums.
