Podcast: Top 3 (Non-Superhero) Comic Book Films

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed Matthew Vaughn’s latest film, Kingsman: The Secret Service, which is based on a comic book by Dave Gibbons and Mark Miller. Well, for those long time listeners, you’ll know we did something similar on Episode 38, however, this week we took it a step further. This week, we wanted to look at those comic book films that aren’t surrounded in the super hero genre. And let me tell ya, there’s a lot of good stuff that falls into this category.

That being said, what non-superhero comic book films would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours (Keep in mind we all have different criteria for our lists as well):


1) Blue is the Warmest Color
2) Kingsman: The Secret Service
3) Road to Perdition


1) Blue is the Warmest Color
2) Scott Pilgrim vs The World
3) Road to Perdition


1) 300
2) V for Vendetta

  1. I seriously HATE this list, or I seriously need to educate you! Ghost World is THE BEST non-superhero comic book movie. Hands down! Do yourself a favor and go watch my favorite comedy EVER made.

    • I’d argue hate is a strong word. Maybe disappointed, but again, I haven’t seen Ghost World. I’ve heard good things. But it doesn’t take away how awesome I think my Top 3 is, regardless. I’ll check it out soon tho.

      • JD, I do love you, but Kingsman wasn’t THAT good. Sorry for my passion over Ghost World, It is in my top 5 favorite movies of all time.

        • Which makes sense, I’d be passionate about defending it too if it was me. But I’ll disagree, KINGSMAN was that good and easily one of the most entertaining films I’ve seen. Loved every second of it.
