In the final installment of our three-part series of “Films You Didn’t Know Were Based on Comics,” we tackle Stephen Frears’ 2010 adaptation of Posy Simmonds’ graphic novel Tamara Drewe. Though it is a change of pace from the tights and flights usually associated with comic books on film, we hope that you’ll enjoy this non-genre diversion. If you really need that genre fix, though, we’ve got you covered! 24 Panels’ contributor Jeremy Woodcock (you can find more of his work at http://alcovewriting.com/) gives us his hilarious two cents on Preist, which may or may not be in theatres now (it was last time I checked, but who knows; I’m sure it’ll be on DVD any minute now).
