Recommendation

Postby grasking on Mon Feb 19, 2007 5:55 pm

I'm gonna make a recommendation for not only those who read comics, but especially for those who don't; "Fables" by Bill Willingham. It's arguably the best comic ( or graphic novel) on the market today. Fables living in the modern world forced here by the Adversary.

Strangers In Paradise by Terry Moore. 18 collected graphic novels to date. The 19th and final collected volume comes out this summer.

What's it about?

Why don't I let Neil Gaiman tell you:

What most people don't know about love and relationships would fill a book. Strangers in Paradise is that book.

I've heard about Sandman by Neil Gaiman, and it sounded good.

It's a story by R.E. Howard. It had a comic book adaptation back in 1988 and now it's being adapted as a comic book mini-series by J.R. Lansdale.

Here's a preview on the Dark Horse site:

The original story is here:

And as I slit it open
It became clear to me that
Scalpel cuts are not as easy to close
As I'd suspected earlier.
