Case in point this LONG list of academics and writers and progressive groups etc lamenting the terrible historical inaccuracies in Netflix's 'Trotsky' series. For example how active and impressive women are reduced to sex/love interests:
"...the great Larissa Reissner is reduced to a femme fatale, the (mainly sexual) companion of Trotsky on the armored train. In reality, Reissner wrote about the civil war and had an important place in the Fifth Army and the revolution. She embarked on the Volga flotilla, took part in the fighting and participated in the German revolution – she was one of the most prominent Bolshevik female cadres until her death in 1926."
Such TV/movies have too many people involved in creating them, in a very heirarchical working situation, with too much pressure from the money people in the corporations to make the thing a financial success and achieve a wide audience. Accuracy comes in a poor 3rd or 4th on the list, if lucky.
Whereas comic books/graphic novels are normally the product of 1 or 2 people, sometimes 3 or 4, working in a tight-knit team of greater equality and with far less financial pressure on them to make the thing 'low-brow.'
Comic books do it better!
