It's been 25 years since James O'Barr's The Crow graphic novel debuted. The book would go on to sell over a million copies. It would also spawn a cult hit film adaptation which is now celebrating it's 20th anniversary. The original film starred Brandon Lee in what would be his final performance, as he died during an unfortunate accident while filming the movie. After that film, Hollywood churned out a few more sequels- but that's where O'Barr checked out. He loathed the sequels and wanted no association with them.
