I think I've heard of the graphic novel, but haven't been able to check it out.

As for Ruric's scripts, the most famous of them is definitely Edgar "Detour" Ulmer's "The Black Cat", in which Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff try to kill each other. "Mademoiselle Fifi" is a musical by Robert Wise, not very well known but not bad, either. "The Gambling Ship" from 1933 is loosely based on
"Fast One", even though it must be very much toned down.
