Comic books are being adapted into movies as such a pace that studios might genuinely run out of comic books. By 2030, they'll all be based on hastily drawn stick figures on cocktail napkins. But before Marvel got its s**t together, it was thought to be much more profitable to turn popular movies into comic books, especially without anyone's permission. But instead of sticking to the script, these back-alley adaptations went with some crazy interpretations. For example ...
The Japanese Jaws Comic Is Full Of Gore And Nudity
Steven Spielberg's Jaws is an absolute classic that discouraged an entire generation of teens from going skinny dipping. Naturally, the killer shark flick inspired a crap-ton of merchandise, everything from video games to an inflatable children's toy for murder-themed pool parties. A Japanese publisher also released a comic book version of Jaws in 1975, though they seemed to misread what people loved about the movie in the first place.
In fact, we have reason to believe its creators weren't paying attention to the movie at all before popping out this pretty intense adaptation. At least, that would explain why they thought the leads resembled Clint Eastwood, Wreck-It Ralph, and Velma from Scooby-Doo.
