Comic Book TV Shows You'll Want to Watch (And Read!)

Vicky's Nerdy N Dirty Blog

This last 7 days have been nothing but binge watching for me. The Punisher season 2 dropped last Friday on Nextflix and have since watched all 13 episodes! I also just finished watching Runaways season 2 last night, both of these shows were fantastic. (I also binged the newest season of Grace and Frankie but don't worry about that.)

 

Usually the sequel or second season of anything ends up being disappointing but Jon Bernthal brings it with the fight scenes, his intensity, and ability to make this comic book character realist and relatable. Runaways has pulled away from the comics, but I am loving what they are doing and seeing all the little "Easter Egg Nods" to the comic from the picture peep hole or outfits.

 

Are you craving some more comics to read through or shows to binged? Want something a little less mainstream? We got you covered!

 

The Umbrella Academy


 

The official trailer just dropped for The Umbrella Academy! Written by Gerard Way (of My Chemical Romance), this book will be sure to confuse you, but I promise you, it's a great read with amazing art (by Gabriel Bá). If you are too confused, trust me, read it twice and you will love it (I know I did)! 

Time. Going. Slowly. Must. Hold. On. @jess_lost_in_the_quantum_realm, sleep for the next month, because when @umbrellaacad drops, there's no sleep, no toilet breaks and certainly no loud chewing of finger nails #darkhorsecomics #umbrellaacademy #gerardway #netflix

The Boys 

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are at it again bringing another Garth Ennis creation to the television! First it was Preacher, now the next series is The Boys! 

This is one of the most eff-ed up comic book series I have ever read...and that is what makes it great. Not for the faint of heart! 

Fun Fact: The main character Wee Huey is drawn to look like Simon Pegg, (before he was this big famous star) and eventually he wrote the forward to their trade! 

I’m genuinely so excited about this. The Boys is up there with Locke & Key and The Punisher MAX run in my favourite comic books of all time. I loved the characters that Ennis created and the premise of what superheroes could do with no one around to keep them in line. If you haven’t read the books yet, I can’t recommend them highly enough, brilliantly written, super funny and crazy violent, it’s a pretty wild ride ! . I would definitely have liked to see Ray Stevenson as Butcher, but I’m also a big Karl Urban fan, be interesting to see if he can pull off Butcher’s accent or they’re just going to ignore it. Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk is pretty sweet casting as well. I’m most hyped for Antony Starr as The Homelander, leader of The Seven. He’s awesome in Banshee and I can’t wait to see him on screen as The Homelander. Bring on 2019 ! . #TheBoys #GarthEnnis #DarrickRobertson #Comics #GraphicNovels #Butcher #WeeHughie #Frenchie #TheFemale #MothersMilk #TheSeven #Superheroes #Villains #KarlUrban #AntonyStar #Comic #Antiheroes #AmazonPrime #TV @antonystarrr @karlurban
