The Great Will Eisner.
Art of the Night
Arts and Culture
Yeah, the movie was "dis-Spiriting" for lack of a better term. Some things are not going to translate well into film unless you have someone of equally-genius talent in that area doing the translating, and even then that guarantees little.
Which brings up the point about how awful I expected The Last Airbender to be (from what most have said, I was right) and how cringe-inducing the idea of Keanu Reeves as Spike Spiegel of Cowboy Bebop actually is. There's more to it than being a comic geek; these are incredible stories as well as images, so to do them in film deserves as much effort as it took to create them in their original element (hat-tip to Peter Jackson for Lord of the Rings., not so much for King Kong). It's just not happening.
I've got Will Eisner's autograph in a very cool form. My father used to work for his graphic arts company. When he got married in 1955, his colleagues gave him a card. Someone drew a caricature of him and his bride-to-be, and everyone in the office signed it, including Will Eisner. My Dad gave me the card years later.
