Comics played a significant role in capturing the essence of popular TV shows during the golden era of television. From the 1950s to the 1980s, the market was flooded with TV-themed comics that captivated readers with expanded stories of their beloved small screen characters. These comics allowed fans to experience their favorite shows in a different medium. Fans could delve deeper into the narratives they loved, whether it was the thrilling adventures of “The Lone Ranger,” the comedic escapades of “I Love Lucy,” or the intergalactic battles of “Star Trek.”
