This Introduction traces the history of today’s comic book film adaptation trend back to the earliest days of cinema with Louis Lumière’s 1895 film L’Arroseur Arrosé. It outlines the scope of the book and establishes key terms. This section also identifies where this project fits in the field of adaptation studies. Specifically, it argues that a study of the comic book film adaptation is well positioned to traverse the research quagmires of the past and move the study of adaptation into new and more productive territory.
