    Milk it.

    Whether it's the bestselling novel series or the upcoming film starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara,
    ...or that other trilogy of films. Or this pointless adaptation in an attempt to grab cash without having to create anything new and interesting.

    Honestly, with no news of the artist, I can't see why anyone would care. Announce a writer? It's... um... already written.

    And really, two GNs per book? Lame. Milk it...

    So, I take it you're not interested in film adaptations? Or, is it just comics that shouldn't adapt from other mediums?

    "It's... already written" is cute. It's dismissive of what goes into an adaptation from medium to medium, but cute.

    Adaptations are fine. I watched the trilogy they adapted from the books. I'll probably see Fincher's (kinda pointless) adaptation as well. But, a comic adaptation at this point just seems useless and a cash grab.

    I like comics. Comics adapted from books should have awesome artists attached, (since, ya know, the story has already been told with words. Give me an actual reason to bother reading it again in a visual medium) but rarely do.

    So yeah, you got some great crime writer or whoever to adapt it to a visual medium... even though that person's craft isn't exactly visual... and no word on who's drawing it?

    Yeah, that's a big fat meh in my book. Especially when you're turning 3 perfectly sound books (and 3, maybe even 6 movies) into 6 comic books. Meh.

    How can anyone actually be all, like, oh fuck yeah, about this? Is it just me?

    I'm more interested in Mina's adaptation than Fincher's.

    I agree, that ain't saying much, but at least she seems to have decent ideas to differentiate her version. I won't rush out and buy it, but I'll definitely check out a copy and possibly purchase.

    I don't know that there are really that many more crap comics adaptations from other mediums than there are, say, horrible movie adaptations, though.

    Certainly not. But, I'd just read the book instead of a comic if the art is crap.

    I actually like that--gives the books more room to breathe and makes it more likely to actually adapt each of these 600-700 page novels.

    I agree.

    I'm interested; however, I'll wait on the reviews before I jump on it.

    From the way it's worded, I think each of these are going to be OGNs.
