What’s Your Favorite Comic or Graphic Novel? 4

Hello everyone,

I pray all is well. As I mentioned in an earlier post, my favorite comic to date is Rising Stars by J. Michael Straczynski. Thanks to the Rising Stars: Compendium, I have read the entire series as well as the short-stories of the main characters. Although it’s a ton of reading, I’ll probably read it again at some point, and I’m considering dedicating a podcast episode or at least part of one to discuss in detail why it’s my favorite comic.



But the purpose of this post is not to talk about my favorite comic or graphic novel, but to find out what is yours. So leave a comment and let me know what’s your favorite comic or graphic novel, and a sentence or two briefly explaining why.

Until next time, peace and take care.

    It use to be Watchmen for me, I was so intrigued by a new way of portraying the superhuman genre, and I loved the details and how everything dovetailed so well, but over time it has worn against my sensibilities.  I would love to tell a story like that without all of the nihilism and cynicism. I still love Bolland’s artwork.  The detail and consistency is unmatched!

    I guess the next favorite TPB was “The Killing Joke.”  It was the definitive showdown for Batman and the Joker to me.  I also like “Godland,” but only because its a nostalgic homage (for the most part) to Jack “King” Kirby.  Other than that, I have problems with that series, too. (Am I fickle reader or what).  I really enjoyed collection of Gaiman’s “The Sandman” series. Great artwork by Kelley Jones.

    I liked “Astro City.” Very enjoyable.  I know there’s more, but brain is cooperating right now.

      Ok ok, sweet! I’ve read “The Killing Joke” and “The Watchmen.” I haven’t read the others one yet. Thanks for sharing!

    My favorite is “Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind”.  It had just the right balance of complexity and pacing, and I have always been a fan of Miyazki’s art style.
