To celebrate the 2010 Comic-Con, we present to you Comics & Graphic Novels vs. the Critics, an exhaustive countdown that includes movies based on everything from superheroes to graphic novels, from manga to strips from the funny pages, in order of critical approval.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Every movie here originates from a comic book source of some kind, not another medium (we know about the Alien vs. Predator graphic novels, but the movies aren’t based on the comics).
  • Only movies with 20 or more reviews are included (sorry, Fritz the Cat)
  • Weighted formula that takes release year and number of reviews into account
  • Omitted all TV or straight-to-DVD flicks.

via Rotten Tomatoes – 120 best comic movies

 

*Note: I added in 5 new critically acclaimed comic movies that came out after 2010*
