Best new Comic Book TV Shows + Superheroes (2017 overview - TV & Netflix)

The day will come that kids won’t know that Marvel was originally a comic label. Or maybe it already has. The list of comics that haven’t been televised yet getting shorter by the month. Luckily, it gave us really good shows. Below you’ll find the top comic series.
The Vore's TV staff selects the top best comic book TV series of 2017 on TV, DVD or Netflix. Are Drew Goddard, Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely our new Comic book genre creators?

Most comic books are about superheroes, and most adaptations are pretty much the same. About superheroes, or supervillains fighting for or agains justice. It's a storyline that never gets tiring.
