This thesis analyses the understudied practice of comic to screen adaptation in order to demonstrate a process-centric interpretation of medium specifism (rendering this process not in opposition to hybridist frameworks) can offer insight into how, or if filmmakers address the ontological disparities existing between the two media involved in their hypertexts. This thesis focuses on the recently flourishing practice of transmedial adaptation from contemporary comics and graphic novels to screen and investigates how the study of this particular practice can offer unique insights into the field of adaptation studies. It examines the relationship existing between the two media; comics and cinema , as they both convery storues and the use of visual sequences.
