    Also, Watchmen is fantastic as is Maus.

    When it comes to some of the more "classic superhero" stuff I've always loved The Amazing Spider-Man.

    I'm not a super well versed comic book fan but I've read quite a bit and it's something I'm trying to do more of recently.
    Watchmen is initially got me interested in this in the first place. Ashamed to admit that the ones I mentioned above are the only ones I've read.

    Will check out Maus and Sweet Tooth. Also have The Walking Dead on tap.


    Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
    I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

    • I haven't read that many comic books but after doing some research of whats highly regarded I bought these;

      Violent Cases
      Maus
      Criminal - Coward

      Have only read Violent Cases so far but liked it.

      The only other comics I've read and own are;

      The Crow (had it since I was a kid and read it tonnes of times, love it)
      Preacher 1-6 (brilliant!)
      Scalped: Indian Country (digged this and bought Casino Boogie to read)

        • Just read an article talking about 14 DC titles being cancelled in the Q1 2015. Three of them are shitty titles that I continue reading only because they crossover with two of my fave books. Woo hoo! $9 saved on comics each month starting soon!

            Looking for what is generally considered the best in the medium.
            Here is a great list of graphic novels:

                  • As an observer and a one-time fan who was knee-deep in Marvel & DC comics on a monthly basis, I'm sad and completely baffled as to what the two publishers are up to these days...! 'Convergence'? and this new 'Secret Wars'...? 'Combining Universes' and all that bollocks... It's all too much, man.

                          It's all just crazy and annoying to keep up with. I was never really into DC and I recently game up on Marvel. I went back to my good old Image comics and only been reading Spawn and Savage Dragon lately.

                          I may check out Marvel again sometime next year when the new Blade series starts. One of my favorites and apparently his daughter will be part of it. It has a good writer too.

                          • Just read through the whole Batman new 52 run, was pretty decent if you're a fan you should give it a go. i'm also up to date with Detective comics new 52, i forget which one has ended. but now i'm going though Batman Eternal and Hush.

                            • i'm actually happy with marvel and dc from a financial standpoint, as i practically don't hafta buy any of their titles anymore! more money for indies!
                              i'm not against what they're doing; i mean, afterall, change is a necessary part of everything. i just don't happen to be interested in all the reboots, retcons, and whatnots. quality storytelling is quality storytelling, that's all you need. i do applaud marvel for actively making their comics more diverse and more female-centric, however.
