The Rise of Comic Sequels

It’s a popular thing nowadays: your show fails to get renewed – despite a cultic viewing audience – and you inevitably wind your way around to following it up with a comic book series. Firefly did it, and Fight Club did, too. Even Invader Zim might be getting the comic book treatment. Let’s talk about this new trend.

  • A good example of how a TV show cliffhanger is made into a comic is Avatar: The Last Airbender, in the comic book The Search. It is also interesting to discuss if the comics are just as good as the film or show themselves. – Aaron Hatch 9 years ago
  • All of Joss Whedon's shows have comic tie-ins or sequels. Buffy has season 8, 9, and 10 in comic form. – Andie 9 years ago
