OUR MONTHLY THEME: Panel to Screen: What fandom has known for decades is that comic books can, and in many cases are, great literature. Hollywood has for over a century adapted great prose works into great film adaptations. Except the bestsellers-turned-movies now have some very strong (and heroic) competition! Look for our Panel to Screen icon throughout this issue of PREVIEWS for more great titles.
