Which Comic Book-Inspired Movies Are the Best? (No Capes!)
Superheroes were in demand among moviegoers in 2012, claiming the first, second, and fifth spots on the list of the highest-grossing movies of the year, but the recent announcement that rising star Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises) has joined the cast of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For reminded us that some of the best comic-based movies don't have anything to do with superheroes at all. A fertile ground for movie adaptations, the comic book medium encompasses every imaginable genre of fiction and even non-fiction, with stories that deal with everything from the mundane — a pair of geek girls rage against, well, everythig — to the fantastic — a secret police force exists to monitor alien activities on Earth — to the sublime — the son of a princess ventures into a magical land to recover a fallen star. Forget Batman, Iron Man and the rest for now and help us choose the best non-superhero comic book movie adaptations.
