Panel to Frame


I've been working on reviews of Fox's Gotham and DC's burgeoning Arrow/Flash universe at The CW, as well as a general piece on the recent spate of comics getting adapted to television and film. The latter would be up by now if I hadn't started tinkering with images to accompany it. Which is how these happened.

If you have any suggestions, either (a) of shots from comics-based productions that specifically echo a certain panel or (2) of screencaps, promo images, or production
stills that feature characters in such a way that it would probably be easy to find an equivalent shot in comics material, I'd love to hear them. I've already put together a couple for the next volley.

I'm giving myself a week or so to get those reviews done for November sweeps, after which I have to take a break from the blog to attend to other stuff.

Superman got the most favorites and RTs on Twitter, but The Walking Dead was the most popular on Tumblr. In the works are Wonder Woman, Ghost World, Wolverine, more The Walking Dead, and even some without Ws like Sin City. Suggestions are still being accepted, however, as this may be an ongoing obsession.
