Prose fiction is good at different points of view. Twice so far in Alan Moore's Jerusalem, we have read accounts of a conversation from opposite viewpoints.

Sometimes, when reading a prose account of an external event, I think that maybe it needs visual treatment, graphic or cinematic. The hereafter has a ghost-storm when many miscellaneous objects and organisms fly overhead. Some of us are bound to ask: how would this look on screen or in comic strip? Might Jerusalem be adapted? Probably not.
