​Comic books are kind of a big deal.



No longer for just the neck-bearded crowd at Comic-Con, comics have become mainstream on both the big and small screen. Studios are constantly searching for intellectual property that can get them the next "Walking Dead." The genre has a very deep bench of hits and misses -- both animated and live-action -- and there are more shows based on comics on the air now than ever before.



In honor of "The Flash" star Grant Gustin's birthday this week, we've decided to rank and file the best TV series based on comic books -- ranked by story quality, rewatchability, and, you know, overall awesomeness.
