Clarissa Explains It All
The concept is totally there to make this a YA series like nobodies business. Clarissa Explains It All helped you get through the typical usual adolescent stuff but also gave her many misadventures and lessons to figure out as she grew up. She tackled a ton of themes and small matters, but wasn’t OVERLY dramatic or had an overreaching message to them.
However, making this into a YA series would broaden her explaining more stuff to the audience. Clarissa Explains It All captured children of every gender, and if made into books (or comics), it would be great for another generation to read her explain more of it. There is Clarissa novel as a reimagining of the leading lady called Thing I Can’t Explain: A Clarissa Novel. Also, very fun fact, Clarissa (Melissa Joan Hart) was the first female lead on Nickelodeon. This is not only very cool but carried a real change in the network that leads to more changes to follow.

Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Are You Afraid of the Dark? would be interesting because of the anthology themed way it’s written. Created by D.J MacHale and Ned Kandel, this show featured teenagers who called themselves “The Midnight Society” as they sat around a campfire scaring each other with terrifying stories that ranged from horror, science fiction, thrillers and more. The show was truly groundbreaking in its way of telling and crafting stories. The stories would connect with the teenagers or relate to an event or just a story to be told. Think of what Goosebumps is doing through IDW and Bedtime Stories with Dark Horse. If Are You Afraid of the Dark? were to be a comic, it would be great to have it aimed towards young adults and scare them out of their wits. See it
