    Milligan and Fegredo's Girl is the first thing that came to mind. But for cable, like Showtime or Starz, not commercial television.

    My first choice (The Crusades) is at the bottom, while my second choice is at the top (Kid Eternity)!

    I'm actually very surprised to see Kid E doing so well; most people hated the more recent version in Teen Titans, and I thought the Morrison/Nocenti version had fallen off everyone's radar years ago...

    I think pretty much any TV adaptation of these books would have to be on premium cable...

    Codename Knockout would be a hoot. There's not enough comedy on HBO.

    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    As for the list provided, I voted for Unknown Soldier. The Dysart version, not the Garth Ennis one. Dysart's version could make a nice, hard hitting television series with enough action, tense drama, and real world politics to bring in a nice Sunday night audience.

    I was worried Saucer Country wouldn't appear but apparently far more people read it than I realized. Been a while since I heard news of Cornell bringing it back at another publisher but I hold out hope.
    I hate "this meets that" descriptions but it would be a cool hybrid of west wing political drama meets x-files UFO theory

    Superhero comic books only become art to the extent that their banal, unrealistic fantasy and garish styles go too far and become interesting. Attempts to ground them in reality can only ruin them.

    I picked Army @ Love just because certain people's heads would explode when they watched the show. And it would be all the right people's heads, too. Maybe three episodes before the media attention gets it cancelled, but those three epsidoes would be legendary.

    Testament was such a weird comic, it would make a cool TV show if it was done right though.

    Torn between Codename Knockout and Young Liars.
    "doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results" is neither the actual definition of insanity nor an actual Albert Einstein/Ben Franklin/Mark Twain quote.

    I didn't particularly care for the comic, but I agree wholeheartedly with your reasoning. It would be pretty legendary.

    Off that list I would like to see Unknown Soldier, Young Liars and Greek Street on TV.
    If you're not reading Lazarus you should be.
