Do You Follow TV Series in Comic Book Form?


If you've been jonesing for NBC's Chuck, here's one way to get your fix before the Fall TV season: Chuck will be turned into a comic book starting in June.

The show is just the latest to spawn a comic that continues (or, in some cases, prefaces) the adventures of its characters off the TV screen. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is still going strong in comic form, Heroes has its own comic complement, and Supernatural got a paper prequel.

Have you ever checked out these series, or any others, in comic form?

True Daisie, it certainly is a very fine line that's defined by format only and not necessarily material. Gaiman's Sandman rules all be it called a comic, graphic novel, or anything else for all I care. :)

Yes, yes, yes! Buffy is the best and if buying Buffy (and Angel) in this form is the only way I get my Buffy..then so be it. While it isn't as rich as the live series (once you've had live action it is hard to backtrack), it certainly is able to go places and do thing that a TV series prohibits. The first "comic" I bought was FRAY by Joss Whedon. The only "comics/graphic novels" I own are from Whedon's mind...whether he wrote that particular issue or not. It's all sort of semantics with the terms of comic book versus graphic novel. Just because something comes out in shorter form monthly doesn't necessarily mean it is a "comic". If we are using the definitions of a deeper story akin to a novel aimed at a more mature audience, then Buffy is certainly of the graphic novel ilk. If we're being technical Gaiman's Sandman was surely a deeper story and oft considered a graphic novel - though he himself calls it a comic because of it's format not content. The content and mythologies of comics like Sandman and Buffy are surely higher than a standard BAM! KABOOM! "bad guy gets it in the end" type of story. :)

Heroes is considered a graphic novel, but the Buffy series is definitely a "comic." It comes out monthly and it's issues are collected into trades. If calling it a graphic novel makes everyone feel better than so be it, but I just love the fact that comics are making a comeback and I don't look like such a big dork anymore in my comic book store every Wednesday ;)

No i dont want to take a survey...gawd, anyway i buy the GRAPHIC NOVELS of tv shows...they are NOT COMICS....The Buffy one continues the story after season 7 ended, and the Heroes one has insight into each season and each heroes personal stories as well as amazing artwork in both.
