How "The Hunger Games" might look as a comic

Now that Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy has come to a close, could we get a graphic novel adaptation? Cartoonist Faith Erin Hicks gives us a taste of what a comic Hunger Games might look like.

Hicks, who created the comic Zombies Calling and most recently illustrated the summer camp horror Brain Camp, created this fan comic of the opening pages of The Hunger Games. We even get to see Katniss Everdeen stare down Prim's ugly cat Buttercup.

I'd love to see how Hicks would contrast this grim view of District 12 with the sumptuous wealth of the Capitol — and the terrible violence of the Games themselves.

Gorgeous!! This girl totally gets the Hunger Games juju. In fact, having just closed the book on Mockingjay, it's great to come full circle and see how the visualization of these opening pages reflects the tone of the whole series.
