    So I got this friend he's a comic book guy you know colects them and all. Well I showed some small intrest in Batman and he loaned me a book "the Greatest Bbatman Story's" Eh... cool not great.

    He then tells me I have to read "the Greatest comics ever"


    Holy S@#T Thier Amazing! Beautiful ,Dark ,Violent,Empithetic tales with 3 different parrelell stroies going on that all complement each other and play and bounce off each other. The Art is Great too.

    There are some literally amazing series of graphic novels out there - my all-time favourite series was the Sandman, but Alan Moore has done some great stuff. His "From Hell" is incredibly literary and quite shocking - and while the subject of Jack the Ripper has been done to death, his "take" on it is entirely unexpected and "difficult" reading - especially in what is basically a comic.

    But I hesitate to recommend it here as it is fairly pornographic, although not in a prurient way - difficult to explain!!
