Homage characters I deal with in the thread above.
Quote: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?
Conan/Kull/Solomon Kane, etc.
Remo Williams, the Destroyer
Brak (John Jakes)
Opener of the Crypt (also by Jakes)
Yours Truly, Jack the Ripper
few other Robert Bloch adaptations
Wildcards (started in prose) by George R.R. Martin
Hellraiser (began as the novella The Hellbound Heart) and other Clive Barker adaptations
Logan's Run (began as a novel)
Quote:Epic did quite a few adaptations of prose.
Quote:Has Lovecraft's work passed into the public domain? I know of a Richard Corben series.
I know that they have some recent ones as well.
I will post a DC version of this thread.
