Make THESE Comics Into Movies (feat. Umberto Gonzales, aka El Mayimbe)

Season 1, Ep. 12

This week, we talk about comics that deserve to be movies with TheWrap's comic maestro, Umberto Gonzales - aka @ElMayimbe.

We talk about why Ninjak, Ann Nocenti's X-Men spinoff "Beauty and the Beast" (featuring ex-disco star Dazzler) and Calvin & Hobbes should be movies. And why Dazzler should be played by Janelle Monae, not Taylor Swift.

Here's Ira Madison III's piece on Grace Jones' influence on Dazzler:
