narrative is verbal;
sequential art is visual-verbal;
film is audiovisual.
Mike Carey's Lucifer shows us a fictional Hell as do Robert Heinlein's Magic Inc and Poul Anderson's Operation Chaos. Further:
Operation Chaos follows Magic Inc as the Psychotechnic History follows the Future History;
a demonic mass meeting in Neil Gaiman's The Sandman was based on an exactly similar scene in Magic Inc;
Lucifer is a sequel to The Sandman.
So everything connects somehow. We would like to see Poul Anderson's works adapted into both visual media - but done properly, of course.
