Best animation effort of a comic?

Out of all the comics which were eventually animated, which do you think was the most successful transition?

There are a lot to choose from, but I thought the nineties Batman series was superb. Oh, and The Perishers!

Would have to be something Japanese, considering that the really do "make the comic" exactly into animation XD.

But apart from that i loved the 90's Dennis The Menace series. The animations of US comics never did much for me, Batman was too dark (as in literally swamped in shadow!), Spiderman was too 'emotional' and X-men had too much going on (it was the reverse of decompressed, they tried to cram big storylines into an episode XD)

If you want to talk about 'making the comic' into animation, you need to check out the 1960s Marvel heroes cartoons: they simply used panels of the art from the actual comics with minimal animation added. It's very odd, but oddly quite cool...

Heh, yeah i remember Captain America and Iron Man cartoons on TV when i was very young. "All those who oppose his shieeeeeld, are keeeeeeled!". I seem to remember scenes, especially in battles, being repeatedly re-used to fill the time up. At least in Johnny Quest they mirrored the scenes so it wasn't too obvious

*ahem* I think it was actually 'all those who've chose to oppose his shield must yield', in fact. I think you may have been watching the Mexican version... Embarassed

Shame it was also boring and confusing as hell.

I seem to remember a TinTin series too which was really good. I always missed episodes though, there better be a DVD out!

Spawn wins it for me. I love how dark it looks.
