Recently at the san Diego Comic-Con we had a brief chat with famed cartoonist Todd McFarlane and asked him whether he thought Tolkien’s work would work in comic book form.

The LOTR films may have come and gone, but for Bill Amend and his Jason character on ‘Fox Trot‘, it feels like December 2003 all over again!
