Cblog recaps 11/02/08 +Randombullisms

Comic books, do you read them? No seriously, do you read comic books? I've always been a Marvel guy myself. Not that I hate DC, I just like Marvel more. Superhero comic books are fun, but my favorite ones seem to feature less spandex these days. Like Transmetropolitan, Preacher, or The Walking Dead. Yeah, I still read a ton of super hero books, but those three are great examples of non-superhero comics. It seems like most people who hear comic book think superhero.

Still the best comic book to pick up right now is "The Boys" published by Dynamite. Only somewhat related to super heroes. The Boys is a mature audience title about a secret government agency that investigate super heroes. Some really great stuff in there. If you think Sam Jackson as Ultimate Nick Fury was a great comic cameo, wait until you see who the main character of The Boys looks like. I'm guessing you're a fan of Sean of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, so you'll notice the similarity quickly.

If you want something else to read, pick up The Walking Dead. If you like zombie stuff at all, you should be reading The Walking Dead. I've been with it for a long time, great series. If I bought people gifts, I would buy them the first trade paperback of The Walking Dead. It is still ongoing, so be sure to take a look!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
The Adaptation

Some things don't belong in this world and yet they are conjured time and again by humans that wish to pay them tribute. A video game, book, comic or TV show becomes popular and later becomes adapted to another medium entirely or, worse, a mobile phone spin-off.

Sometimes you get Telltale's The Walking Dead and other times you get Super Mario Bros.: The Movie -- one a great tribute to the comics and TV shows and the other had its soul stolen and made a '90s movie executive's slave.

And here comes another classic game series with hopes of becoming a Netflix hit as I brace myself and hope it doesn't turn out to be a miserable pile of secrets.

Castlevania is a beloved series and with Konami it's sort of a surprise they'd do anything with it at all after running out the people that made their games good and running the franchise into the ground soon after. Yet here we are with an anime series debuting this week and I'm kind of excited for it.

History should leave me a bit more cynical, sure. I remember the Street Fighter live-action movie, the Zelda cartoon and much more, but Mortal Kombat was perfect in its camp and The Witcher games are pretty faithful to their source material. We even have games being adapted into other kinds of games by different developers. Borderlands is now a looter-shooter and a point-and-click adeventure and that works really well, actually.

So for this month's "Bloggers wanted," we want you head over to the community blogs and tell us about your favorite adaptations of games to other mediums or even your favorite adaptation of another medium to games. Use "The Adaptation: [Your game/title here]" in the title and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags.

Enough talk, have at you!
