The main reason why comics canâ€™t work as films is largely because everybody who is ultimately in control of the film industry is an accountant. These people may be able to add up and balance the books, but in every other area they are stupid and incompetent and donâ€™t have any talent. And this is why a film is going to be a work thatâ€™s done by dozens and dozens and dozens, if not hundreds of people. Theyâ€™re going to show it to the backers and then theyâ€™re going to say, we want this in it, and this in it… and whereâ€™s the monster?
