Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog. I hope you have been enjoying my Arrested Development Screenplay. I decided to take a break from that to post a more standard blog post(for me at least)
Today I’m talking about TV shows I would like to see adapted as comic series. It seems to be a trend over the last few years in comics with X-files, Buffy, and Power Rangers, to name a few. And seeing these series has got me thinking of TV shows I would like to see revived in the comic book medium. Here they are in no particular order. Let me know what you think.
Heroes: This one seems like a no-brainer. Say what you will about the show, but it still has some potential. It may never live back up to the promise of Season 1, but I think an ongoing series that takes place either between the main series and Heroes Reborn or after Heroes Reborn could be just what the franchise needs. A comic could bring back much-loved characters like Claire, Sylar and Peter without the hassle of actor scheduling and so forth. There was a rumored series just before Heroes Reborn was announced and I think continuing the story in comics is what Heroes needs.
Reaper: Like Heroes I think Reaper, a two season CW series that ended in 2009, lends itself well to a comic adaption and since the left the series on somewhat of a cliffhanger I think it a comic continuation would be fun to see.
My Name is Earl: I realize this suggestion is a little out there and I don’t know how well it would translate, but I want to see the My Name is Earl story wrapped up and if we can’t get another season or a movie this is the next best thing. I would also like to see a crossover mini-series with Raising Hope since we never really got a fully-fledged crossover when Raising Hope was on the air, although plenty of My Name is Earl actors showed up.
Knights of Prosperity: Despite only running for one 13-episode season Knights of Prosperity remains one of my favorite shows and I would like to see it continue in one way or another. Like My Name is Earl I’m not sure how well it would translate, but I feel like it could work. The show followed a gang of amateur themes whose goal is to steal from celebrities and the comic medium would allow them to feature which ever celebrity they want.
Those are a few of the TV to comic adaptions I would like to see. What shows would you like to see become comics?

Last Comedy Set:
I’m still at the comedy grind, averaging at least one set a week. Here’s my latest set last week from a showcase I did at a local theater. I apologize for the video quality.
Post end Poem: Here’s another poem I’ve been working on. Enjoy.
Sword of Fates
From the white cauldron
of the future
malevolent broth abounds.
Rancid scents sting her nostrils.
The sword of fates
will make her stronger,
but it will also weaken her.
The sword will be procured
from Dr. Funky,
curator of the weird
of the netherworld.
The golden sword
permeates her hands
with frigid ice
as it sings to her.
Faber est suae quisque fortunae
Dr. Funky whispers to
the formerly named girl
who will soon travel to Atlantis
after slaying Mari, the goddess of the sea.
Dr. Funky becomes a magnificent fire-breathing dragon.
She uses her allusion to slay him.
Where rests the white cauldron now?
She wonders as her journey begins.
