I’ve long been skeptical about adaptations of the comics and books that I love, partly because I’m a real stickler about voices and casting, and partly because of budgetary issues forcing needless changes on live-action versions.  By that token, cartoons are the perfect balance, allowing for the unlimited budget madness of a comic book but giving us that all-important motion that everyone seems to want to add to comics.  If you’d asked 16-year-old me if I’d get to see Blok, The Vigilante or Swamp Thing on the small screen, I’d probably have looked at you like you were insane (and only part of that would be the fact that 16-year-old me was an overconfident punk with no manners), which leads us to today’s Syncro-Vox query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) had some fun with the Legion Of Super-Heroes series, but is torn between giving top honors to DuckTales or Justice League Unlimited, asking: What’s the best cartoon adaptation of a book or comic in your eyes?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
