SPIDER-MANDATE: The Lowe-down on "Secret Wars," Tie-Ins and Stacey Lee
Comic Theme Time is a twist on the idea of a “Top Five” list. Instead of me stating a topic and then listing my top five choices in that topic, I’m giving you the topic and letting you go wild with examples that you think fit the theme.
I was thinking about this the other week when I was writing about how Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was, in effect, a gigantic tie-in film to sell candy (read more about it here). That made me contemplate a bit the concept of how art and commerce can intersect and sometimes actually result in a good piece of fiction. That though, in turn, made me think about comic books, which have had a long history of tying in with things like TV shows, movies and toy lines.
So here’s the theme – the BEST comic book that tied in with a movie, TV show or toy line. Is it G.I. Joe? Is it Transformers? Star Wars? ROM? What do you think?
