Zone 4 #283: Movies Based on Comics

The crew returns to discuss 20 movies that you might not know were based on comics.

This week, it’s Brant, John, Gordon, Ron.

To kick things off, Gordon and Ron share their thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy.

Then, we discuss Don Pardo and various headlines ranging from film, to TV, to comics.

For Topic Time, we talk about 40 movies (but we only get to 20) that you may or may not know were based on comic books, with some added stories and discussion on the movies themselves.

And we close out the show with announcements.

Also a new contest is announced and the winners will be announced on episode 80. A lot of stuff is discussed in this show: The Crazies, Whiteout, Suspiria, Step-Brothers, some dutch film, and Constantine. Get your laugh track ready cause sitcoms are our top five, then plenty of glorious comics talk. She Hulk, Wonder Woman, Human Target, Super Girl, Young Inhumans, Choker, and Wildstorm after the Fall all get a good amount of time. Which two do TJ think are some of the worst comics written?
