Quantcast

With summer movies like Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Man of Steel, Pacific Rim and more on the horizon, it’s a recognized fact that genre films, especially comic book-based movies, are a standard staple of Hollywood. As fans, we’ve been treated to some truly awesome adaptations of our favorite reads, and some not-so-great adaptations too. This month, PREVIEWS celebrates Movie Month once again, paying tribute to the comics and graphic novels that served as the basis for movies, or vice-versa.

Check out some choice selections for your reading (and viewing) list, and look for our “Movie Month” icon throughout the May issue of PREVIEWS for more great comics-to-movies reading!
