Umbrella Academy, Lucifer, iZombie, Happy, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Arrow, Gothem, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Legends, Black Lightning, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and Jessica Jones are just a few of the many comic book inspired shows that can currently be watched on Netflix.

Competing with other streaming services, and the soon to be Disney+ on the way, Netflix has been increasingly investing in its original content. Comics have a proven record of producing high quality shows and there is clearly an audience for a wide variety of genres and stories ripped from the pages of our favorite graphic novels.

With what feels like every Marvel and DC story ever being tapped for movies and TV shows it makes sense to look at less well-known series and smaller or independent publishers.

Sometimes comics are just too indy, or had too short a print run, or are already forgotten despite having what it takes to jump mediums. Series that are refreshing, original and ready to be brought to the small screen. Here are 6 comics you’ve probably never read that should be the next new Netflix shows.

West loves pop culture, movies, comics and TV-shows just as much as you do. Probably. Since you're reading this. Also, she has a cat. He's pretty awesome.
