Meh. I've seen panel for panel work perfectly for audiences and I've seen major changes work as well. I don't have a problem with either as long as they are not losing what makes the characters work in first place. Besides Watchmen, I've rarely heard complaints that something was so accurate it didn't work. It still takes alot of creative work to bring these characters and stories to life either way. I don't think it defeats the purpose of film at all. But that's subjective to the viewer I guess.
