    Reader Poll: What is the Best Comic Based on a Television Series?

    Next week, we see the release of “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer” #1, the start of a new line of Buffy comics from BOOM! Studios. Buffy is one of many properties that found a real second life as a comic series. Some, like The Simpsons, have had comics for decades now whereas others, like The Prisoner, didn’t see a comic adaptation for 30+ years after the show aired.

    But there is no doubt that right now is the best time to be a fan of licensed, TV-based comics. Just next week, along with “Buffy,” we see comics from Over the Garden Wall, Steven Universe, Ducktales, Star Trek, Jem and the Holograms, and My Little Pony. We couldn’t possibly include all the comic adaptations on our list, so we selected a hodgepodge of favorites, long running titles, and a few goofy ones for good measure.

    Note: We tried to keep this to all adaptations of properties that started as television shows, or that were adapting the television series. So, even though Buffy: The Vampire Slayer was a film first, the comic adapts the tv show. Similarly, Transformers, Go-Bots, GI Joe, etc, all started as toys first, so they were not included. Similarly, Disney properties and Casper the Friendly Ghost started as theatrical shorts, so they, too, weren’t included.

    Did we miss your favorite series? Let us know in the comments!

    This week, “Powers of X” #6 closed the book on the introductory chapter of Jonthan Hickman’s X-Men run. The dual miniseries of “House of X” and “Powers of X” recontextualized just about everything in the X-books to an absurd level, bringing into question things like immortality and the singularity. The books are ambitious, beautifully illustrated, […]
