I've had this thought for a while now. Do you think that comic book companies like IDW or Dark Horse make a comic book reimagining of some of the different anime and manga? If so, which do you think they should do and how do you think it should play out?

For example, I've had this idea for a reimagining of Fairy Tail.

I have two versions of it so feel free to tell me which one is the best.

Fairy Tail Forever Version 1

Nathan Dragneel:
24 year old Nathan Dragneel is on a hunt for his missing father. He needs answers and he's the only one who could provide them. Nathan is sort of a cynical jerk with a heart of gold. He used to be all cheerful and smiles but that was until the death of his childhood friend, Lis, which changed his life forever. He is joined on his quest by his cat, Happy and by the young journalist, Lucy.

Lucy Heartfilia:
24 year old Lucy is just starting out as a journalist. So far, she has been searching for the mysterious Fairy Tail, a gang made up of super-powered misfits. However, she finally finds a link to the gang in the form of Nathan Dragneel, one of its members. She joins him on his quest, hoping that he may lead her to Fairy Tail. Nathan is reluctant to take Lucy along at first but over time, she starts to grow on him. Although she has kept this a secret from everyone (including her father), she too has strange abilities. Apparently, she has the ability to summon creatures from other dimensions

Basically, Nathan is a byronic hero who throughout the series, starts to evolve into a better person. The other members of Fairy Tail make appearances once Nathan decides to take Lucy to their headquarters, an abandoned factory.

Fairy Tail Forever Version 2

Natsu "The Salamander" Dragneel

Age 24. Half- Japanese. This Natsu is different from the Natsu that you're more familiar with. He's no longer your typical shoune hero. He still gets motion sickness except that it's been heavily toned down. One time when he was 15, he was visited by his future self. He only said one thing to him, "Something bad is going to happen tomorrow". Young Natsu didn't know how to interpret this sentence and he was also wondering how his older self could actually be standing right in front of him. Before he could get his answers, Future Natsu disappeared in a flash of light. The next day, Lis, Natsu's childhood friend, is murdered. No one knows who did it. The killer was never caught. It was because of this, that Natsu becomes angry. To this day, he is still as angry as he was back then. No longer is he the happy boy that used to be, the one that Lis loved so much.

He gains the nickname, "The Salamander", when reports of a man being engulfed in flames is saving people from building buildings. When the rescued victim saw the man, he looked as if the flames were not harming him, hence the name, "The Salamander". A mythical creature that is said to live in fire or withstand its effects.

Well, if I were to do one on Naruto it would definitely be about real ninjas. So basically, the series would focus a lot on stealth. I going to have to do some research on the history of ninjas to get them just right.

Here you go:

Naruto: Men of Shadows

Naruto Uzumaki is a young orphan boy who is taken in by his supposed godfather, Jiraiya. You see, his parents, Minato and Kushina were killed by the masked man, Tobi. Jiraiya teaches Naruto the ways of an assassin in order for Naruto to be able to exact his vengeance on Tobi. He has to learn the ways of being stealthy and to be able to be a more efficient killer.The first story arc would be about his training over the years.
