On the nose.
Is it really needed since there is already actual novels and a movie?
Like...a comic is words and pictures. A movie is speaking words and moving pictures.
This is like going forward 2 steps and then taking one step back, i'm not sure what you gain by doing a comic.
Nothing's gonna happen without a warning
If you treat a comic like storyboards, you're right... there's nothing to gain.
But that's because you're making bad comics. When done well, comics have several advantages over film, not the least being the ability to address longer and more intricate aspects of the storyline, as well as significantly reducing production costs, while still providing visual stimulation to the reader.
Beyond that, comics and movies are different on a fundamental level... movies are largely passive entertainment; you sit and watch, and the story is fed into your senses at a pace and direction almost entirely dictated by the director and production team.
In comics, you're looking at interactive entertainment. It seems passive, but it's not! As with reading in general, but especially reading dialgoe, the words are meant to be heard inside the reader's head. The way those words sound, the exact delivery and timing of the phrases and the various subtle nuances of performance, these are something personal and unique that you create when you interpret the words and images on the page. Beyond that, the passage of time in general is something that the comics creator directs, but the comics reader fulfills. It's up to the reader to fill into the action between the panels, or establish in their own minds how long an action holds.
This is why comics as a storytelling form isn't dying (despite the handwringing over publishers and their woes in the direct market), because so long as it does something unique in storytelling, so long as it effectively fills that gap between the wholly internalized consumption of prose and the largely force-fed consumption of theater and film, it has a place of its own and it represents value.
That's why a comics adaptation of this series, or for that matter many other series, is still worth doing. It's a media for consumption on its own merits, not just a poor-man's alternative to movies. If you produce work on that basis, you'll end up with shit work, as we've seen happen many times before... not because the media is at fault, but because you started from a position where you failed to understand why comics are different from movies and novels.
