Major plot points, crossovers, and story arcs can have ramifications lasting years if not longer. Crises, deaths, wars, character introductions, etc… have all shaped the landscape of comics over the years. What event do you think was the most influential?
Sometimes when we’re feeling down or if the world seems overwhelming, we look to our colorful heroes in comic books to pick us up. What inspires you in comics? A character? A specific storyline? A specific moment?
From Hell (Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell’s Jack the Ripper story and a perfect combination of History and Drama.)
Wytches (The most unforgettable horror comic I’ve read in forever, Scott Snyder and Jock’s art are the stuff of nightmares. )
Maus (Art Spiegleman’s masterpiece and THE book that really opened my eyes on what comics could accomplish as a medium.)
American Splendor (There once was a file clerk in Cleveland.)
The Acme Novelty Library (Chris Ware’s work of metafiction that should have certainly been on any listing of the 100 greatest works of fiction of the 20th Century in Time Magazine alongside Watchmen.)
Any early back issues of Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories
with Carl Barks Donald Duck stories, a timeless read for any age.)
Monstress (Just read it already, You won’t regret it.
“The Butcher of Paris” and “Basketful of Heads” are really good.
Gideon Falls without a doubt! That smiley face dude is creepy. Add Andrea Sorrentino art. Gold!!
“Satellite Sam” by Fraction/Chaykin. Absorbing period-piece with great fast dialogue and layers of adult oriented story-line. Much like “The Big Lebowski”, the plot gets lost in the elements, but the world is so fun to get caught up in that the reader shouldn’t really care.
Love the story and the art work. Big fan of horror and this series is simply got you questioning which way it will it go.
