Many big thanks to James of Reading Along for making me aware of Marvel's Xanadu adaptation!
Xanadu is one of the greatest bad movies of all time. Directed by Robert Greenwald, this 1980 film starred Michael Beck and Gene Kelly as a young artist and an aging big band leader who are inspired by a Greek Muse--played by Olivia Newton-John--to follow their dreams of opening a rollerdisco nightclub. I know that plot summary sounds bad, but believe me, it's much, much worse. It's one of those so-bad-it's-good movies. I own both the DVD and the soundtrack, which features music by Olivia Newton-John and ELO.
The comics adaptation doesn't disappoint. It's written by J. M DeMatteis, with art by a cast of many, including: Rick Buckler, Brent Anderson, Al Milgrom, Bill Sienkiewicz, Howard Chaykin, and Peter Kuper.
The only thing it's missing is the booming Jeff Lynne soundtrack, but you can get that from the iTunes Music Store and read away!
