Over the last few years, Netflix has really held the market on adapting comics to television. Sure, other streaming services have done the same, like Amazon Prime with The Boys and Hulu with The Runaways, but comic adaptations like Locke and Key, Daredevil, October Faction, and The Umbrella Academy have been the bread and butter of Netflix. This month, they're at it again with The Old Guard, based on the comic of the same name by Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez and starring Charlize Theron as the lead character. Well Netflix, here are some other comic books which could really use a good show!

“You’re never fully dressed without a smile!” cheers the eponymous song from Broadway’s Annie, and pop culture is certainly filled with memorable characters who just can’t stop cheesin’. Some smiles are broad, others quiet and mischievous. Some smilers are clever tricksters and others are insecure middle schoolers, but regardless of style, we’re rounding up all of the most memorable mandibles in pop culture!

Having a sibling can be a great thing, a person to grow up with, a person to share experiences with, and someone to talk to about your parents. We love our siblings and wanted to celebrate life with them by giving a look at some of the best siblings in comic books and graphic novels. While they may not always get along, that doesn’t’ mean they don’t love each other on some level.

When you imagine a good son, you may conjure up the image of a child or man who always respects their parents or does something above and beyond the average son in some self-sacrificing way, but this list is not about those sons.
March 4th is National Sons Day (yes, there’s a National Son Day in September and a Son and Daughter Day in August - yes, it’s confusing), so now would be a good time to highlight some of the low-key goodest sons in literature. These are not the sons framed with blinding halos, but rather ones with glaring flaws, ones who’ve lost their fathers or mothers, or ones who quietly but deeply love their parents and deserve the title of goodest sons.
