Subj: Re: MVL Adaptations of prose, literary characters, whether established as part of Earth-616 or not, but for the most, part do not list properties in the public domain, as that would make the list a bit too long

    Trying to think of Marvel's adaptation of prose, literary properties not in the public domain.


Well, there was Elric of Melnibone turning up in a couple of Conan issues, with Moorcock's permission.

They also adapted Theodore Sturgeon's "It" and "Killdozer."

2001 and Planet of the Apes are borderline cases, as they were primarily film adaptations but also had a literary existence. In 2001's case, the book an movie were simultaneous projects, of course.

I don't actually know the PD dates for the H.G. Wells and Edgar Rice Burroughs materials Marvel has adapted; was the Barsoom stuff PD in the 1970s when Marvel published a John Carter series?

    Epic did quite a few adaptations of prose.

    Has Lovecraft's work passed into the public domain? I know of a Richard Corben series.
