Hello. I'm putting this here because I'm not sure where it should go.....
anyway, here goes:
has anyone seen the French movie Bloody Mallory?
I've stumbled upon it last night, flipping through channels, and really liked its visual aspect...
it was on again today, so I taped it.....
it was screaming at me "I need to be a comic/graphic novel!)
now, I've always wanted to do graphic novels, but I have a problem with plots. I mean, I'm much better at the visual aspect than the story aspect.
I know there are a lot of comics turned into movies but the other way around? has anyone heard?
does anyone have any ideas?
do you guys think this idea stinks?
thanks in advance

I have not seen the movie, but I know what you mean. That's exactly what I thought when I saw the fifth element! It's a good idea. There have been tons of movie to comic adaptions, but they tend to be tie-in promotions to the movie. I know TV shows that have comics.

All I can tell you, if you are serious about it, contract the studio or writers. See about buying the rights to make it a graphic novel. They might not charge more then a few hundred dollars. Then you can either self-publish it or shop it arround to the small press publishers, like fangraphics.

Looks like Lions gate is the us distribter, and since you recorded it, look for the production comapny. I'd start there, e-mailing them or calling, find out who owns the movie and inquiring about the rights. Hope this helps.

Oh, well just go ahead and do it. It sound like a fun sort of project. I have trouble writing up the stories my comics too. I always get stuck on the dialouge.  I just sort of assumed you'd want to publish it or something. I don't think you could even just make an on-line comic out of if you don't have the rights.
