I used to be big into comics, well Spawn until the movie….it was bad, really bad then Mr. McFarlane’s
literally lost the plot. But Spawn in its glory days was a great read.
My favourite graphic novel has to be “Watchmen” from the pen of Alan Moore,
Sinply the best story on superheroes, this one digs deep. Great story and a real page turner. If anyone thinks that comics/graphic novels are for kids read this.
Second would be “batman returns” by Frank Miller, Bruce Wayne turns 40, has given up being Batman
but finds himself donning the cape again. A great read spoiled by some plot loop holes, the mutants story
could have been better written.
Killing Joke by Alan Moore. It explores the relationship between Batman and the Joker.
The X-men, Xavier’s song. Some of the x-men comics, the cross-overs and two to three titles a month make it too expensive to follow. A pity.
And Sand Man. .
Lastly there was a batman comic, don’t think I still have it, where Batman visits a man who trained him,
He shows Batman through this door that leads into Batman’s subconscious where he goes through
various scenarios that force him to deal with the darker areas of his soul. A great read, don’t think I have it anymore though.
Too early for the rainbow, too early for the dove These are the final days, this is the darkness, this is the flood
