GAINSBOURG

Gainsbourg

Comic book: Gainsbourg (2010)

Film: Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life (Joann Sfar, 2010)

Writer/director Joann Sfar wouldn’t be happy to see his film included in this list. While the film was written first through drawings and comic book sketches, he insists that this is just because “[his] way of writing goes through drawing.” Nonetheless, as a comic-book artist, his film has clear roots in its graphic origins. Most obviously, an animated Gainsbourg appears throughout the film, tying it firmly to a comic book sensibility. Unfortunately, we were robbed of Charlotte Gainsbourg playing her own father when she dropped out, reportedly finding it too unnerving.

2 RE: Oblivion
L: chrispdaniel Just out of curiosity, did the Oblivion graphic novel actually get made? After watching the special features on the blu-ray and seeing some of the artwork I thought it would be an excellent purchase, but looking online I can't find any evidence of it actually being completed. Have to say I have enjoyed this list, and was surprised at a few of the inclusions on here. Not all of us Empire readers are know-it-alls, though we do of course bow to those with such superior knowledge and will allow them to scoff at us for our lacking of it. echnically yes, and technically no for the Oblivion novel. It did start life as a graphic novel, and was going to be one, until its creator started to work on it as a movie concept and it was picked up. So while there is no graphic novel as such, there is a 'concept book', or 'Movie artwork book' that contains all of the graphic novel stuff that you can find on eBay for between $10 and $30 ish. And its fair enough thatMore

3 RE: Needs renaming to..
L: GrizBe .. 40 Movies EVERYONE knew were comic books. Seriously Empire, do any of you watch movies anymore? ve to second this calling of BS on the article. You'd have to have been living under a rock for the last half century, or somehow have avoided any and all contact with entertainment news media, to not know that these are based in some way on comics. Also, The Addams Family was never a comic book (it was a gag block appearing in The New Yorker), and to claim that John Hughes' Weird Science was based on the EC comic is like claiming that a Volkswagen Beetle is an actual insect.

Also, the graphic novel for The Fountain is very good. I love that film. Saw it at the cinema, bought it on DVD, bought the soundtrack, the graphic novel and then last year re-bought the film on blu-ray. More
