10 Comics Ready for Prime Time

With AMC's "The Walking Dead" debuting to record ratings and Fox putting "Locke & Key" on the fast track, it seems likely more network executives will cast an eye toward comic books - particularly those that don't involve capes and tights - when they look to diversify their lineups in future seasons.

Tom and the Legion

Tom Bondurant considers the history of the Legion of Super-Heroes and, despite his love for DC Comics, explores the reasons why he's never really been that passionate about them.

Cass is back?! This make me very happy.

And if JMS is leaving Superma and Wonderwoman, can he take a little time out of his schedule to finish that Adam Strange issue of The Brave and the Bold that I've been waiting for since August?

And John Byrne is psychic?
