Whether one prefers Marvel, DC, Archie, or Disney, National Comic Book Day is a day to show appreciation for the art form known as the "comic book".

There are comic books about the life of Jesus and many saints, as well as  classic literature such as "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "Romeo and Juliet". There's a Comic Book out there for everyone! Below are some popular TV series and/or movies that either were originally inspired by a comic book or continued as a comic book:

  • The Walking Dead is based off a comic of the same name
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer has had additional off-air seasons created in the form of comics
  • The CW's Riverdale & the cartoon Josie & the Pussycats are based off of Archie Comics
  • Disney's Big Hero Six is based off a Marvel comic of the same name
  • Casper the Friendly Ghost & Richie Rich are based off comic series by Harvey Comics
  • Men in Black came from a comic series published by what is now known as Marvel Comics
  • The Smurfs were originally a Belgian comic series also called The Smurfs

The popular Netflix original series' about The Defenders: Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Daredevil, are based on comic book characters of the same names.

To encourage reading, many classic novels including "The Three Musketeers", "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "The Scarlet Pimpernel" have also been made into comic books. 

Comic books inspire many media, even if they seem like "picture books" to some folks.

Comics and graphic novels are an art form where artists and storytellers can create as large and detailed a story as they like-limited only by how much paper they (or their publishers) can afford to print!

Being married to a long-time comic collector, over the years I've attended  Comic-Con, Wonder-Con and other comic conventions and events. To keep myself financially safe and occupied while my husband searches for missing pieces for his collections, I search the "cheap bins" for old school comics from my childhood. It's fun to discover an old Disney comic starring a favorite character, such as Scrooge McDuck, especially when it only costs 25 cents or one dollar.

Chances are, there is a comic book out there for almost everyone. (National Comic Book Day should not be confused with Free Comic Book Day, usually held in May. That event is about encouraging people of all ages to read by giving away free comic books.)

Hi Michelle,  Thanks for sharing this comic book information.  I have never been a big fan of comic books - but I am a fan of getting people to read.  My wife is a reading teacher and there are a few kids that comic books are their gateway to the love of reading.
