Comic book stories and characters are thriving both on the big screen and the small screen, from live-action to animation, and even documentaries. Newsarama has compiled a list of all the current, upcoming, and prospective television series based on comic books.

Like our list of comic book-based superhero movies and other genre movies, we're not including production info such as cast, crew or plot; this is just an easy-to-read look at what's to come in North American theaters.

Here is a complete schedule of the announced television series and their status. Those signed to networks will be denoted as such with those outlets in parenthesis, while the other prospective series with no broadcast home as of yet will simply list their production company.

Due to the nature of some comic books being optioned for a television series but never actually being made, we are only listing projects with some sign of life in the past 48 months.
