5 Shows Cancelled To Early that Deserve a Comic Book Continuation

By: Cynthia Ayala

We all have those favorite shows that critics raved about and had action, suspense, the whole shebang. But for some reason, networks cancelled said shows due to “lack of ratings”, regardless of the fan base that was growing and growing. It happened with notable cult classic show Firefly, whose fan base garnered an amazing film, and it happened with Family Guy, whose fan base bought up those DVDs like candy forcing FOX to bring back the show.

Not all shows are that lucky though. Firefly also has a comic book series courtesy of Dark Horse comics, and other shows that have been cancelled that have comic book continuations include Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, & Angel and Faith.

I absolutely love how this show creates the premise to the future, as fans know it…or knew it before the new 52. Just look at this episode where they introduced Viper, a drug that gives people super human strength but depletes their calcium levels leading them to very gruesome deaths. However, it is admitted to being a prototype produced by a subdivision of Wayne Enterprises and that the finished product is called Vemon. That made this bat-fan positively giddy.
