These questions stem from 1. Not having been a die-hard comic fan all my life, but having always enjoyed them when I come across them, and 2. Having just recently watched The Mindscape of Alan Moore.
In the Mindscape of Alan Moore, Alan sits before a camera about an hour and discusses how he got into comics, his philosophy towards comics in general and storytelling as a whole. One peculiar thing he made clear about his particular success is that ironically, he tried to make all of his comics and graphic novels "unfilmable". Obviously a good chunk of his works have been, but he goes on to explain he never got involved with the filming process of any because at the time, the comics were made to be "unfilmable".
So here's my questions. What can comics and graphic novels convey that a film, or book, or another storytelling medium might not be able to? And specifically with Alan Moore; Swamp Thing, V for Vendetta, From Hell, Watchmen, whatever else that's been turned into a movie or TV show, what elements of his works would you say didn't, or couldn't possibly be carried over into film?
