    Hm, none of these, how about Psych and Burn Notice?

    My first answer is not a cable series, it is network, but am I alone in wanting a Community comic book?

    I voted for Deadwood. Their curse of choice was very funny and I would find it hilarious to read that same word over and over and over again in comic form.

    What about Carnivale? The series ended with a cliffhanger, hoping to go into a third season. That would be my vote.

    Same reason I voted for Deadwood. Carnivāle would be a great choice too. It would be very nice not necessarily to see ongoing books but at least a "final season" maxiseries for cancelled shows to bring things to a conclusion rather than leaving us hanging.

    I would like to see a Community comic, I guess, but only if done right. These characters have such distinctive voices and I think it would be very easy for, not to name any names, but certain writers to not get it and leave us with a very bland, sad thing masquerading as a Community comic.

    Deadwood. Maybe David Milch can finally give us an ending.

    I think The Shield did get a comic book series.

    I personally think this shows the inherent insecurities of the comic industry. Why should we look or care about content from other media? Comics is more than capable and talented to make our own great content that people would clamor to adapt to other media.

    It has nothing to do with "insecurities." Adapting stories from other sources is simply a standard, inherent part of every sector of the entertainment industry and always has been. There's certainly no justifiable reason why the comic industry should act like they're too good to do it (esp. since they've been doing it for decades and produced plenty of good comics in the process).
