This chapter examines spatiotemporal remediation in 300 (2006) and Watchmen (2009) and textual remediation in American Splendor (2003). More specifically, it explores the comic book panel and the film frame in terms of spatiotemporal construction and representation as well as the relationship between image and text in the comic. The chapter first provides an overview of the taxonomy of stylistic remediation before discussing how space and time are remediated in 300 and Watchmen. It then analyzes textual remediation in Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini's American Splendor, based on Harvey Pekar's comics (1976–2008). It also reconsiders the role of horizontal integration and conglomeration in the process of stylistic remediation, suggesting that media conglomerates can capitalize upon the added visibility and cultural capital of comic books and their adaptations both directly and indirectly (through licensing rights).
