List Rules Vote up or add only comic books that have yet to be adapted to film.

Comic Book movies have become some of the top earners in the film industry. While Marvel and DC comics have been producing most of the top grossing comic book movies based on the likes of Batman, Iron Man, and Superman, there are still a bunch more comic book properties that haven't even been touched yet. 

Marvel and DC movies are just scratching the surface of the comic book world for film-worthy material. There are plenty of other publishers that have comic book lines that would make amazing comic book movies. Books such as Y:The Last Man, Saga, and Girls all stand out as comic storylines that are fleshed out enough to be transferred right into a film script.

Which comic books should be made into movies? Vote up your favorite comic book series that should be made into a movie, and add any that aren't on the list already.
