With TV Shows like The Walking Dead, The Flash, and [Daredevil (Netflix)](tag:1168702) being received well it's no wonder that new comic properties are already in the works. But I don't want to talk about them. I want to talk about the future of Graphic Novel TV adaptions! Specifically what could be.....

1. Chew

Yummy!
Yummy!

In this reality chicken is outlawed! Anyone caught eating and or selling chicken will be arrested by the most powerful law enforcement agency...the FDA. One of their agents is Tony Chu. He is a cibopath which means he can eat anything and find out where it's been, and how it died. The series was started in 2008 and it is still going on today. And it just gets better and better. Packed with incredible art by Rob Guillory and written by the insanely talented John Layman. This series screams TV! So if I was you, I would read up on it before it comes to whatever network crazy enough to show it.

2. Batgirl Year One

The graphic novel chronicles Barbara Gordon's path to becoming Batgirl. The comic mixes dark and brooding, and light hearted humor perfectly. It'd be absolutely perfect for TV. If you are a fan of The Batman Animated Series you'll love this book. I can't recommend this book more, and the same people who made Batgirl Year One also made a Robin Year One which is also fantastic.

3. Swamp Thing

I'm the King of The World!

Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is probably one of the most celebrated graphic novel series. A little fun fact, there was a show based on the comic along with two movies. All those properties failed, but I think now with better SFX and a better understanding of the source material, we can get that drug induced TV series we need. Just like the comic the TV show can be filled with gorgeous/horrifying imagery.

4. Silver Surfer

To Me My Board!

The All New Marvel Now comic by Dan Slott would make a perfect animated TV Show. It follows Earth girl Dawn Greenwood and Norrin Radd aka Silver Surfer traveling through the universe getting into strange and life changing adventures.

5. Gotham Central

Call Batman!
Call Batman!

This was actually going to be the TV Show FOX was going to air until it was changed to Gotham. This would have been a better decision in my opinion. It's a crime procedural that includes Batman and his infamous rogues gallery. For some reason television is afraid of showing a live action Batman. The 60's are over.....it's okay to show him again. The series has a slew of great complicated characters, and amazing stories that would make compelling TV.

Are there any Graphic Novels that would make great shows that I didn't mention? Let me know in the comment section below!
