In Hollywood, at least. But what of the medium in which the superhero originated — the comic book — and the purveyors of the hundreds of comics that are released every month? The high street is not as bulletproof as multiplexes, and comic shops are having a tough time of it. It even appeared in Sex and the City. Last year, comics website Bleeding Cool documented how 50 comic shops had closed in the previous year, in both the US and UK.

Jessica Jones , which comes to Netflix on Friday, is a game-changer for Marvel. But long before Jessica Jones was changing Marvel on screen, she marked a whole new day in Marvel Comics. And in , Marvel broke away from the Comics Code Authority, the governing body that had closely regulated its comics for nearly half a century in order to avoid books becoming to violent or inappropriate for children. But once the CCA was being phased out, you saw a lot of adult comics thatfeatured endless streams of curses and sex acts, without the actual substance to match. Because they could be violent, show explicit sexuality, and include cursing, it was all they did. Yes, Jessica drank, had sex—its first issue ends with an infamously graphic moment between herself and Luke Cage—and swore blind, but that edge never felt like it was used just because it could be used. All of the adult material was in service to telling a realistic, tragic, and dark story about an incredibly emotionally damaged woman who just happened to have superpowers , to add a real core to truly believable protagonist.

Kick-Ass was rated R, and most of the others were aimed at an adult-only audience. Like these movies, TV series such as "Daredevil" and "Arrow" have also been saturated with bone-crunching violence. The proliferation of such mature superhero adaptations reflects a three decades-old trend in the comic book industry, which is now so entrenched that the brighter, family-friendly adaptations—last year's Guardians of the Galaxy and, out this week, Ant-Man —are the exceptions. The superhero genre was originally created as all ages entertainment, aimed mainly at kids but sometimes done in a manner that allowed adults to enjoy them as well.

I hate to gush, but seriously, this is just amazing for so many reasons — not least of which is the fact that the first volume features breastfeeding on the cover. The pages are colorful and the art is gorgeous. The first volume reads much like a murder mystery, with a reformed Big Bad Wolf serving as the sheriff of Fabletown; each volume, however, has its own unique feel, which is part of what makes this series stand out. It follows the story of a man and his pet monkey, in a dystopian world where everyone else has seemingly vanished. New Line was slated to develop a movie based on the property, but sadly, it has since been canceled.
