David Rigby has won Little White Lies’ competition to condense a favourite film into a six panel comic strip, with his take on Zombieland (detail shown, above). We have his comic, plus a selection of some of the other best entrants here on the CR blog…

Sporting a cover by comics legend John Romita Jr., the new issue of Little White Lies has new film Kick Ass as its featured title; a tale of a high school student who decides to become a super hero, despite having no special powers, adapted from Romita Jr’s and Mark Millar’s comic book.

To coincide with having Kick Ass as its lead film, LWL ran a readers competition to transform a favourite film into a six panel comic strip. The winner was David Rigby, who cast an ironic eye over the nuances of the film Zombieland, and whose entry features in the new issue of LWL out March 4 alongside two runners-up strips. The best of the rest will also be included in a special digital edition published March 5.

Until then, Rigby’s work plus the two runners-up are shown in full below, followed by several of the best entries, which include six panel digests of Total Recall, The Wicker Man, Seven, Adaptation, Flash Gordon and The Road.
