Robert Kirkman’s Graphic Novel Picks
In my opinion, the greatest superhero comic ever... and definitely in my top five comic series of all time. Erik Larsen pushes the boundaries of what a superhero comic can be. This comic, more than any other, drove me to want to make comics my profession. I love this book.
Another great book from new talent. It's really inspiring to see new voices coming to comics and bringing in such awesome ideas. Witch Doctor is a great horror comic that doesn't get caught up in the ten billion cliche land mines that exist in the genre. Totally original and totally great.
Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' finest work until they did FATALE which will be launching in June in collected form, so seek that out too. Criminal is just what the title makes you think. It's a straight crime story with no capes or laser guns, showing that you don't need that stuff at all to tell a compelling and egaging story in comic form.
Jonathan Hickman, writer of all the best comics these days, totally got his start here, and it's one of the best debuts a comic-creator has ever had. So marvel at how much talent this guy started out with and if you love it, seek out his other stuff.
Walker and Pilgrim are cops who solve crimes involving superheroes. It's a cool story set in a really interesting and nuanced superhero world. It's a great book for the adult superhero fan who's sick of seeing Spider-Man beat Doctor Octopus for the 900th time. And hey, FX is developng it as a TV show! Comics is where it's at, people!
