Write a screenplay. Then pitch it to a producer. That's my guess.

Just have a look at what Mark Millar does. He pretty much writes most of his comics for the sole purpose of using them as movie pitches. :x

Take a lesson from Millar and do this, just don't insult your intended audience along the way.

I never really read any of the movie pitch era Millar books, are they that bad?

I felt like Kick-Ass was essentially six issues of Millar shitting on the people buying the comic.

I'm reading Supercrooks at the moment and actually am finding it quite good but it's pretty much just a rip-off of Ocean's 11. On the other hand I started getting Secret Service and I hate it. Which pretty much sums up most of Millar's work for me - hit and miss and mostly miss. And both those comics are co-plotted by movie directors so all they are are movie pitches which for some reason really annoys the shit out of me.

I figure it's usually execs see something in a property and want to make it a film/tv show. Creators could be pitching it as well. Some books translate well and some, as someone posted, seem to be created for that purpose. I hope it's not a habit as to cheapen the medium.
