I was reading this article on Geek & Sundry about the comic that's being published about Sparky, the dog from Dead of Winter. They've also suggested a few games they would like to see turned into comics and it got me thinking; which board games would I like to see turned into a comic?

Feel free to add yours and tell me why.

I love the Mad Max type setting in this game and people would definitely read a comic about the Appalachians facing of against the mutants in a post-apocalyptic desert wasteland.

A comic about crazy scientists racing through the Alps in homemade inventions using grappling hooks, arachno-legs and rocket-boosters? Look into my eyes and tell me you wouldn't want to read that.

Another post-apocalyptic game but it just makes for such good source material. With this game, the rulebook is already a story on its own so they shoudn't have too much trouble adapting it to a screenplay.

It's so cool that the rulebook actually tells the story about a kid driving down a zombie-infested Route 66 with his family. Everytime I play this game with someone new, I let them read it before and it definitely sets the mood for the game.

But they shouldn't drag this one out like the Walking Dead. After 20 or so comics they should reach Los Angeles. Or at least die trying...

Same reasoning as 51st State.
