If I had the reigns at a comicbook company with a little money to spend (IT COULD HAPPEN!), I would hire emerging cartoonist Ross Campbell (Wet Moon, Water Baby, Shadoweyes) to turn Whip It into a graphic novel series. He has a serious command of the medium, and a knack for capturing the personalities of hot weird girls of every conceivable shape, size and color. I think Ross could pull off the seemingly mutually exclusive tasks of making a comic version that appealed to both male and female readers. Men and women approach the topics of sex, violence, sports, etc differently, so many artists would have trouble appealing to both at the same time, but Ross is definitely up to it. I mean, my wife and I are both straight GEEKING for the next installment of Wet Moon, his slice-of-life book about the trials and tribulations of emo art school chicks, so I believe he's the man for the job.
