Some of these are a bit older, but I would like to see them adapted into other media...and I haven't seen them mentioned anywhere in the thread yet...
Strangehaven by Gary Spencer Millidge-great quirky little tale of the residents of a village that gathers strangeness to itself. Character driven stories without the need for big sfx budget to adapt.
A couple of graphic novels that speak to our troubled times...Palestine by Joe Sacco and Fax from Sarajevo by Joe Kubert.
Mike Oeming was involved in a couple of projects that would make for great animated features or series in Mice Templar and Hammer of the Gods.
A couple of Jim Starlin projects would look great on te big screen...Dreadstar-epic sci-fi but would take a relatively big budget unless done as an animated feature and still then, and 'Breed, a sci-fi horror cross-over with plenty of cosmic weirdness.
The Xeric award winning Roland Days of Wrath would make a great historical epic featuring a Christian-Muslim conflict in a historical context leaving a lot of room for allegory or thematic exploration in a modern film project.
Scott Snyder's Severed is an excellent horror tale that has a lot of possibilities.
Bryan Talbot's Adventures of Luther Arkright is a cosmic mindbending tale of alternate realities superbly told and has potential to translate into other media. His Tale of One Bad Rat is a smaller powerful tale of childhood abuse that is simply exquisite story telling.
Going very old school you have things like Steve Englehart's Scorpio Rose originally published by Eclipse comics in the 80's, the character later showed up in his Coyote series, crossed over with Warrior Nun Areala and now appears in his Long Man novels. Rose is a woman cursed with immortality and a gift as a seeress who hunts down occult threats and objects around the world.
A lunatic is easily recognized...You can tell him by the liberties he takes with common sense...and by the fact that sooner or later he brings up the Templars.
I had hoped that a Usagi animated series could have been spun out of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series from a few years back. Those episodes where Usagi and Gin guest starred are some of my favourites.
I would like to see Ed Brubaker's Criminal books made into movies. Just so long as they are marketed properly. Drive and Faster both had good stories to them, modern day noir tales, but what you saw in the trailers/adverts was totally different to what was actually in the movie.

I also feel kind of weird nominating me and my partners creator-owned web series Robot God Akamatsu : http://robotgodakamatsu.blogspot.com/
But it would be an awesome giant robot vs kaiju flick... And the best part is that it's on the east coast.
* I would love to see an Atomic Robo live action or animated.
* The Kill All Monsters comic is looking promising http://www.facebook.com/killallmonsters
Most anything with mechs or monsters will get my vote
