Six Pix: Comic Strips

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

Comic strip adaptations are featured in this edition of Six Pix.

Included are: Blondie (1938); Little Annie Rooney (1925); Jungle Manhunt (1951); Flash Gordon (1980); Dick Tracy (1990); and The Spirit (2008).

The best of these give a nod back to their roots. The Spirit goes newspaper gray, keeping the noir feeling of the comic series. Blondie and Dick Tracy utilize bold primary colors (reds, greens, blues, and yellows) of the Sunday funnies page. While they both do it well, Blondie seems a bit dull compared to the Dick Tracy illustration in which the sharp contrasting colors really pop.

Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below! (And please feel free to suggest future topics.)
