'Drawn To Film': Comics On The Big Screen

Oct 28, 2016

Some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters over the past few years have something in common: their characters were born on the pages of comic books and graphic novels.

Emory University’s College of Arts and Sciences has teamed up with the Department of Film and Media Studies to bring some of those films back to the big screen. The Emory Cinematheque series “Drawn to Film: From Comics to Cinema” is free and open to the public Wednesday nights on campus.

We talk with Emory senior lecturer of film and media studies Eddy Von Mueller, the series curator, about the shared history of comics and movies.
