Hollywood has a tendency to simplify or completely alter stories to make them more mainstream and appealing to their idea of a popular audience.
In this Quackcast we thought it'd be fun to run with that idea and re-imagine our works for “Hollywood”.
Need examples? Take Carmen Sandiego: From a mysterious woman and master thief she has now been rebooted as a teen girl who only looks like a thief, she's really a good guy. Hollywood is replete with far worse examples though: “Run Lola Run”, a high action German movie about a woman desperately trying to get to a reality where she and her drug dealer criminal boyfriend stay alive after a routine drug deal spirals horribly out of control, all themed around her desperate run to be on time! Turned into “And Then Cam Lola”… Now a romance film and instead of a scruffy ner-do-well in love with a drug-dealer BF, Lola is now a talented photographer who's trying to make things right for her job and her girlfriend: Hollywood ;)
Ironically, the treatments we give our comics probably makes them more commercially saleable IPs XD

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to GRIND: Raw, slutty vocals and a slow sleazy tune… perfect for a burlesque show. This music evokes the acid colours and sensual, hardcore, comical imagery of Lothar’s GRIND perfectly!

How would they change it? Younger characters? Love triangles? Time travel? Ghosts? :D

If they did do this to my webcomic, I imagine that they would only use the first book. To be very honest, I don't think my webcomic would work as a movie. If anything, it would work out better as a TV series because in my case, filler would be a good thing. It would be a chance to develop some of my characters more.
