I have also been reading Criminal. As far as super heroes go I have been reading a lot of Justice Society of America... The first super hero team in comic books... what have you guys been reading if anything?

There's a few graphic novel threads I think,  which is what I read.  Vert is just mad that there's no comic version of the Walking Dead tv spin-off,  fear the walking Mexicans

Don't read them anymore.  Last time I did was the underground comics of the '80's.  Robert Crumb, S. Clay Wilson, and the incomparable Gilbert Shelton.  "Dope will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no dope."

Such a broad term.. still unsure of the actual difference

I have a few first appearance grades comics in the 96ish range. Bane (who's my favorite comic book character) first appearance is my personal grail. Graded 96.

A graphic novel is more like a book or a film where a comic is a sit-com/villian of the week TV series... Or a comic 😂

most graphic novels are just anthologies of comics. As an example Watchmen was originally published as a 12 issue comic as were most "graphic novels".

M8 crossed is insane.  Nothing comes close.  There were a few attempts to do a show or movie on it but unless it's just a straight up R horror I doubt it gets done.  Ennis is the GOAT #changemymind

Y the last man is also a great comic

That's a great one, imagine it being written or produced now though with all the femmen / PC / alphabets??  It would probably be "all the heterosexuals are dead!"

One of the best scifi story arcs 

I've had the 2nd image as a tattoo design for years just haven't gotten around to it.  

 

Transmet and Preacher are my equal 2 GOAT comics.  Can pick either up at the start and get completely engrossed and read the whole thing easily.  Wish Transmet could get sold as an epic TV series

They are both amazing but IMO Fear Agent is number 1 right now
