Nick has announced that the 90’s nostalgia we all love and crave isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Nick has brought back some of their classic series in a new subscription platform named NickSplat. NickSplat will serve as a place where you can peep all favorite 90’s Nickelodeon series and game shows such as Hey Dude!, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, The Wild Thornberrys, KaBlam!, CatDog, The Angry Beaves, Salute Your Shorts, Guts and more.
With this announcement, it got us thinking about some Nickelodeon shows that would make great books or comics. We’ve already gotten some dynamite comics from BOOM! Comics in the form of Rocko’s Modern Life and Rugrats and some adaptations of Spongebob, Loud House, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Avatar, The Legend of Korraand more. But what about those old Nick shows? Would those be good comics? Book series? Or something completely different?
We’ve decided to bring you guys a list of eight Nick shows that might make some pretty dope books and comics. There are way more than presented here because that 90’s nostalgia is so strong. We want to give you a little taste of what we’re thinking.
Aaahh!!! Real Monsters
It’s quite surprising that Aaahh!!! Real Monsters hasn’t been made into a comic series. The premise/plot is perfect for the medium. Think about it. Readers can join the marvelous misadventures of Ickis, Oblina, and Krumm as they go about the city trying to complete their school assignments. Each issue as a different one-shot adventure of frightening humans and epically failing or succeeding in their goal. It would be gnarly looking, comedic, gross-out funny, but in the realm of horror because that’s super important and apart of the overall vibe of the show. It’s somehow unbelievable that this hasn’t happened yet. Also, the show is set in New York City. You craft a mountain of stories with these three (or any of their classmates) in this type of setting.
