The Discworld Graphic Novels: The Colour of Magic & The Light Fantastic

As you can imagine, the Discworld novels are tricky ones to adapt into any form, yet beg -- almost scream -- to make the jump to comic books.

Slowpoke

This has bite, but doesn’t draw blood -- there's too much intelligence and logic to be totally mean.

Cover Girl

The back cover compares this book to Rush Hour and Lethal Weapon. This is a comparison the powers that be should not make. They sell their book too short.

Left on Mission

This is a spy thriller with meat. A page turner that stands up with the best Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum have to offer but works on many different levels. It is frothy and deep at the same time.

X-Factor #1-4

It is not your typical superhero book, owing more to the works of Raymond Chandler and film noir than Lee and Kirby.
