Bob's Burgers

Here's something I used to do, and I'm bringing it back...  Not as relevant as it used to be, but still fun...

The 1960's were the heyday of the TV show tie-in comic book.  And even though many companies produced TV tie-ins, the clear leader was Gold Key/Western.  And their general rule was to wait until a TV show made it into it's second season before licensing it, because then the show had a proven track record.*  Sure, this meant that sometimes another publisher (like Western's former partner Dell) might steal a hit away from them, but it usually worked out.

The TV networks had their upfronts recently, so now we know which shows are coming back next season.  So what I'm going to do is list all the returning fiction shows (on the major networks) that haven't been adapted to comics yet, and you can chime in and say which ones you would like to see as comic books, or that you would think would make a good comic book... (The list is broken down by network, simply to organize it a bit.)

My picks? Modern Family, Once Upon a Time, Bob's Burgers, New Girl... What do you pick?

*There are many exceptions to this rule, where Western started the comic in the first season.  Believe me, I heard about all of them when I posted on Usenet.  But they were all shows with obvious "kid appeal", so you can see why Western would take a chance on them...

Some of these have already been adapted, or at least got some kind of tie-in, like Once Upon a Time, Vampire Diaries, and Grimm (and obviously, Agents of SHIELD is based on a comic book). I don't think comedies would be that interesting (a lot of the time it's actor delivery, which you don't have in comic books), but cop dramas, yeah. I'd buy the hell out of Sleepy Hollow comic, though. I'd be curious about Beauty and the Beast, too.

There's been some Once Upon a Time comics? That's something I would be interested in. On the other hand, I have no interest in Grimm or Vampire Diaries, so I'm not surprised I missed them...

It was just a one shot Regina story called Once Upon A Time: Shadow of the Queen. It came out last fall and was published by Marvel.
