The comic industry's Eisner Awards may not be globally renowned, but Hollywood and beyond certainly regards winners as having big-screen potential. But it came down to a British-based production banner, Studio Eight, to option the film rights to I Killed Adolf Hitler, a graphic novel by Norwegian comic artist Jason (aka John Arne Sæterøy). The novel's publisher, Fantagraphics, has hired screenwriter D C Walker of Up Country Productions to adapt the 2007 Eisner Award winner. The story follows the adventures of a hitman who encounters complications after travelling back in time to 1938 to assassinate Hitler.

Postcards from the veg: Carl Warner's food landscapes aren't just beautiful, they're downright delicious
Friday 30 September 2011
If Carl Warner's photography looks good enough to eat, that's because it is. His landscape portraits are created entirely out of food. Trees are made from broccoli, the clouds are cauliflower and mountains are formed from piles of mashed potato. The result is a body of work that is irreverent, whimsical and fun. Warner created his first "foodscape" in 1999, after a trip to the market left him thinking how much Portobello mushrooms looked like trees. That led to Mushroom Savanna, which re-imagined the fungi as part of an African landscape.

Trying to catch up with a series like Torchwood: Miracle Day is a bit like trying to get up to speed in Sumerian mythology in just 10 minutes. Actually, it's worse, since the cross-series references that produce a warm bolus of joy inside true devotees mean you don't have only one belief system to disentangle. If Enki, the Sumerian deity of crafts, occasionally popped up on Mount Olympus, in ways that were critical to a full understanding of later Greek theology, then you'd be a bit closer to it. I don't have the time (or the inclination frankly) to engage in such an arduous field of scholarship, so I might as well confess right now that I don't have the faintest idea what Phi-Corp is or what the Trickster's Brigade are up to or how Jack keeps skipping around between different time dimensions. What I can say, on just two minutes' acquaintance with the current series, is that it has a great central idea. Everybody has stopped dying, one of those monkey's paw miracles that looks like a blessing but turns out to be a catastrophe. Jack and his Torchwood cronies are currently trying to find out why it's happened, though the urgency of their quest doesn't appear to prevent Jack spending quite a bit of happy downtime with a fetching young Italian immigrant called Angelo.
