...at least, that doesn't reflect your feelings on all of them. Remember, the films are now the most familiar incarnation of Middle-earth to the general public. Not that an Alan Lee cover wouldn't have been nice too.

Tolkien had nothing to do with the creation of PJ's movies and in most likelihood, wouldn't have cared much for them if he shared any of his son's sentiments.

Since Tolkien passed away in 1973 he obviously had nothing directly to do with the movie adaptations. At the same time, without the books there would be no movies, no animated television specials, no radio dramas, and no The Hobbit graphic novel.

Question: Do you think that the collected graphic novel could have been used as a template (a rough storyboard, if you will) in adapting The Hobbit to the screen?
