Did you know these movies were originally comics?

• Howard the Duck

• Ghost Rider

• Army of Darkness

• Barbarella

• Men in Black

• Bulletproof Monk

Yes, of course all Mike Lynch Cartoons readers know that those movies were originally comics. What about PERSEPOLIS, GHOST WORLD, 300, SIN CITY, X-MEN, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, V FOR VENDETTA, THE MASK, THE ROCKETEER (What a great movie!), HELL BOY, THE SPIRIT, FROM HELL, LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, and more. OK, maybe not SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, unless you read it in a Classics Illustrated comic -- but, anyway, there's even more over at this Wikipedia page.

See you there!

Thanks Mike. I'm going to try to get there. I wasn't aware this was going on this weekend.
