The comic book medium has provided audiences with an endless supply of both entertainment and escapism over the years. Naturally, its value translated to the small screen and, thus, the resulting TV shows did the same.
Much like the source material, comic book shows allow us to lose ourselves in these ambitious and boundary-pushing worlds in what is perhaps an even more immersive experience than reading about them. While film adaptations do the same thing, they are somewhat limited by run-time whereas a TV series can expand on the rich worlds through episodes and seasons of context.
Comic book shows have been a regular part of television for decades now, first rising to prominence through '60s and '70s superhero shows like Batman and Wonder Woman, but the genre has experienced something of a renaissance in this last decade which has introduce us to a host of unique and compelling offerings.
And with studios, showrunners and producers continuing to come up with innovative ways of reinventing the genre - through shows like Watchmen and WandaVision - it's clear that we'll continue to be enamoured by these adaptations for years to come.
With that in mind, let's check out some of the upcoming comic book shows we should definitely check out in the very near future.
