How to film a graphic novel

“The first thing to remember is that it’s not a graphic novel, it’s a comic. People are so afraid to say the word “comic”. It makes you think of a grown man with pimples, a ponytail and a big belly. Change it to “graphic novel” and that disappears. No: it’s all comics. Movies are all movies. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Orson Welles: one is shit, the other isn’t. But they’re all movies.”
