Shortbox Showcase #005

Adaptations.  Professor Alan and Emily talk about what makes for a good or bad adaptation, and about what constitutes an adaptation in the first place!  What are the things that make comic books different from other media?  And what three properties would they each like to see adapted into the comic book form?  Spider-Man, Harry Potter, Tintin, and (of course) Babylon 5 are discussed ... in the shortbox.

We would love to have your feedback on this episode!

  1. I would absolutely love to see someone take a stab at doing a comic version of The Neverending Story.
