Comic Book Movies

Brian Bolland has provided the artwork for the "Comic Book Movies - Graphic novels on the big screen" festival at the BFI on London's Southbank.

Showing a non-identified spandex-wearing hero (is it Directorman? FirstGripman? Gafferman?) the season of movies is on now and runs until the end of August.

As previously reported here, movies being shown (at BFI Southbank) as part of the festival include Superman, Flash Gordon, Dick Tracy, 300, Ghost World, Hellboy and Iron Man.

The BFI IMAX will also be showing a number of movies including V for Vendetta, The Dark Knight and an X-Men trilogy all-nighter (introduced by Sir Ian McKellen).
