Marking today's release of the hotly anticipated "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" movie, we've taken it upon ourselves to gather a list of the "Best Graphic Novel-to-Movie Adaptations." We've tried our hardest to stick to graphic novels and exclude superhero comics -- but all Frank Miller and Alan Moore material had to become the necessary exception. From high school loners to a Fascist in Iran, the topics covered in these graphic novels-turned-films certainly runs the gamut, but one thing remains constant: these books and movies are all amazing.

'Ghost World'
1 of 8
This 2001 film revels in the angst and ennui of a suburban teenage life. Author/illustrator Daniel Clowes created eerily memorable characters, such as Seymour (played brilliantly by Steve Buscemi), while Zwigoff (director of the cult-classic documentary on comics artist R. Crumb, as well as “Bad Santa”) brought the characters to life with his unique style of dark humor.
