If You Haven't Read These 10 Comic Books That Were Made Into TV Shows, You Really Should

These shows were great, but have you read the source material they came from? You should.

With Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. making blockbuster movies and shows based on their famous comic book IPs, it's no surprise that other TV networks and streaming services would comb through the comic book world to find the stories they believe could be the next big hit for them. On this list, we'll dive into some shows that are based on graphic novels that I believe you should be reading right now.

A lot of these shows can't cover every storyline in the comic book or some material just isn't made for TV audiences, either way, if you liked any of the shows on this list, I highly recommend you start reading the comics they're based on.
