Favorite Comics

Fun Home
Fun Home A Family Tragicomic By Bechdel, Alison (Graphic Novel - 2006 ) GN FUN and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:The best thing I read in 2006 hands down. One of my all time favorites of anything I've read. Bechdel does things here that can only be done in comics. Love her use of maps.

WE3 By Morrison, Grant (Graphic Novel - 2005 ) GN WE3 and more… All copies in use Availability details

Annotation:One of Morrison's more accessible works, and perhaps my favorite example of Frank Quitely's art.

Black Hole
Black Hole By Burns, Charles (Graphic Novel - 2005 ) GN BURN and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:Just a great story. About alienation and disease. Wonderful black and white art.

From Hell
From Hell Being A Melodrama in Sixteen Parts By Moore, Alan (Graphic Novel - 1999 ) GN MOOR and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:This story made me feel sick while I read it. Anything that can evoke that sort of feeling belongs on a top list.

Preacher Book One, [Gone to Texas] By Ennis, Garth (Graphic Novel - 2009 ) GN PRE and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:All American epics should begin as this does, in Texas. Plus Vampires.

The Dormant Beast
The Dormant Beast By Bilal, Enki (Graphic Novel - 2002 ) 741.5973 BI OS and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:Enki Bilal is a force. This is perhaps my favorite of his. The Nikopol Trilogy is another worth checking out.

Torso A True Crime Graphic Novel By Bendis, Brian Michael (Graphic Novel - 2000 ) GN TOR and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:Great use of negative space in this true crime story about the Torso Killer in Cleveland that brought down Elliot Ness.

Planetary [Vol.] 1, All Over the World, and Other Stories By Ellis, Warren (Graphic Novel - 2000 ) GN PLA and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:These superheroes delve through 100 years of pulp culture. My favorite Warren Ellis story. Love the art by John Cassaday.

Supreme The Story of the Year By Moore, Alan (Graphic Novel - 2002 ) GN Y SUP and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:Pretty much the only superhero story that matters. The art is a bit weak in parts, but I love the reveal at the end. Moore hits this one out of the park.

Blankets An Illustrated Novel By Thompson, Craig (Graphic Novel - 2003 ) GN THOM and more… Available in some locations

Annotation:A beautiful first love story and memoir with flowing evocative art.
