10 Comic Books That Should Be Made Into Films #6: Strontium Dogs

A brother to Judge Dredd this British comic is a cunning mix of science fiction, old west, and humor.  Thanks to nuclear warfare a generation of mutants is born.  Most of these mutants are just ugly on a stick, but a few get some cool super powers.  Unfortunately, like in the X men normal people are having no truck with having mutants living next door much less marrying their sister.  So these poor mutants are often forced to take crap jobs.   Some with the skill and chops become bounty hunters.  That brings us to Johnny Alpha who is a bounty hunter that works for a group that travels through time and grabs people like Hitler to try them for war crimes.  Because there is often competition for the big bounties the adventures of Johnny Alpha often come off like a science fiction satiric version of "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly."  How could anyone not like a movie like that?


  1. A Strontium Dog film would be amazing if handled correctly ( ie the right balance of humour and action )but it would need a BIG budget...

  2. Never heard of it but sounds good.

  3. I've always thought it would make a great film, as long as they keep the style of it - a gritty and dirty future.
