Mage has been through three separate publishers, finally finding a home at Image Comics. Matt Wagner carried it for 35 years. The story follows Kevin Matchstick through a modern-day mythological allegory. He starts as the embodiment of King Arthur with a magic baseball bat as his Excalibur, and the series goes on to encompass other mythological heroes.

If any series from Image needs to be a multi-season television series, it's Mage. The story spans decades and carries heroic moments throughout, with Matchstick's journey of growth. An adaptation needs to show this hero's journey to a greater audience.
