Abstract

This article explores the often contradictory relationship between films and comic book art. Adaptations of superhero comics have reinforced a commercialistic blockbuster mentality among the Hollywood studios. Adaptations of graphic novels have explored alternate visions of visual style and representation. Complications of these polarized effects and subsequent implications will be discussed.
