Top 5 Comic Book Shows of the Fall 2016-Summer 2017 Season

With so many Comic Book TV Shows currently airing, it’s time for me to list which, in my opinion, were the strongest 5 that I’ve watched.

Honorable Mentions

Heroes v Aliens/Invasion Crossover

While not exactly a TV show, the 4 part CW comic book crossover showed the best of what a team super-hero comic book show can be, and while it truly was only a 2 part crossover (with Supergirl only crossing over on the last few minutes and Arrow being a celebration of 100 episodes, which, I think is the strongest episode Arrow has delivered by far) seeing Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and the Legends fighting aliens was truly an exciting event which makes it more exciting thinking about what the future crossovers of the Arrowverse might bring.

So, this is kind of cheating, since American Gods isn’t exactly a comic book TV show, but since it’s based on the novel written by Neil Gaiman (who has previously worked on comics, such as Sandman) I decided to put him on the list of honorable mentions. American Gods is a fantastic, over the top and highly-stylistic TV show. Although it takes quite some time for the show to finally go into it’s conflict, this show does a great job handling the gods of different mythologies, how they would still be relevant in our modern word, and emphasizing what is currently “sacred” or idolized by society.
