me gusta la serie from comics to screen de sequart. había leído ya el tomo que le dedicaron a batman begins y lo disfruté mucho. son libros minuciosos, detallistas; buscan no juzgar sino entender el proceso de adaptación --cómo se adapta un cómic a cine, qué interviene en esa adaptación, qué se pierde en la traducción. si a uno le interesan esas cosas muy específicas, pues este es un excelente lugar para comenzar.

This is a very straightforward book, which looks at the original X-Men film trilogy and how those movies relate to their comic inspirations. The problem is that the book is so very dry....there's no real personality in the writing, and it becomes simply a recitation of facts and issue numbers. If you know the comics, there's not going to be very much that's new here.
