Audiences get that gift of pure joy when their favorite Sunday comic adaption gets released. We were treated to the likes of Peanuts, Garfield, and Dennis the Menace…but what about the other greats? Here are the top 5 comic strips we would love to see on the big screen.
Zits is a fun panel about the wishes and dreams of teenager Jeremy becoming a rock star. His parents and life are pretty boring but he makes the most of it. This would be a wonderful film for teenagers wanting more in life than a boring old job and stressful life. Full of humor and the meaning of family.
4. Spy vs Spy
Not your traditional Sunday panel, this duo of pure violence was featured with the MAD magazine. These two spies will stop at nothing to defeat each other with their dangerous and wild tricks. The adaption would be filled with fun special effects including hilarious slapstick and plenty of fun for the mischeavious in the family.
3. Pearls Before Swine
You look at that picture and tell me you don’t want to see that. These five animals and their hijinks are enough to make anyone laugh like a five year-old. Made to show how the world really is like through different personalities, this adaption would be a great step for comic book movies.
2. The Far Side
These are some of the funniest comics to ever be drawn. Hilarious characters from humans to dinosaurs fill the pages of The Far Side. A film adaption of The Far Side could take many short stories and combine them into one universe making for an awesome trip of hilarity.
1. Calvin and Hobbes
Calvin and Hobbes is one of the most popular comic strips in the world. Not only does this comic bring amazing comedy it also teaches life lessons, the strength of family, and most of all the importance of a best friend. My favorite comic strip of all time needs to be made. Let’s hear it for the lovable Calvin and Hobbes
What other comic strips should be made into movies? Thanks for reading and follow for more updates!
