You Decide 2005 (May)

Here is my offer.

You folks out there all pick a comic title that you think is good (let's try to keep it recent, unless it is an older story available in trade format), and I'll try to hunt down a couple of issues or a trade (no guarantees I'll find them, but I think I'll be able to do okay), read them, and put up an entry about it.

So a whole entry just on one comic that you think is cool...hopefully it will bring the attention of the two people who read this blog (plus the 8 other blog writers, so hey, that's TEN possible new readers!!!).

Sound cool?

If so, then you decide!!

Tiempos Finales (End Times) vol. 1 by Sam Hiti. Good vs. Evil. Great Action. Moody atmospheric drawing. Only $10 for 116 pages. One of the best comics of 2004.

I finally read the first two volumes of Carla Speed McNeil's Finder. Speed is a little too ambitious, throwing up all sorts of stuff that she may never come back to, but too much isn't a big fault. I loved the art and am looking forward to reading further volumes.

I would like to recommend Heart of Empire by Bryan Talbot, which I believe is available in trade. It's a sequel of sorts to The Adventures of Luther Arkwright which I don't think it's at all necessary to read, in fact, I still haven't.
This is an amazing work of literature. I'm sure you'll love it.

Last week I discovered - and loved, and positively reviewed - 15 Minutes from Slave Labor's Amaze Ink imprint. Think Common Grounds + GLA + played straight. One of my new favorites for 2005.

Out in left field, Kabuki: Circle of Blood and Kabuki: Metamorphosis are two of the most original, thought-provoking trades you can buy. The current Kabuki series has been hit-or-miss, but the two "main" Kabuki stories are extraordinary.

Berlin, Jar of Fools, and The Fall, all of which are by Jason Lutes (The Fall was written by Ed Brubaker) are intelligent, expertly-drawn books, and highly recommended.

Recent stuff: ... um... I'll get back to you.

Picking up the comments from the "shipping this week" thread, I'll recommend anything by Jason.

Why Are You Doing This? (a mystery) came out this week, but there's also:

Hey, Wait (a tragedy)
Sshhhh! (wordless)
Iron Wagon (a detective story adaptation)
Tell Me Something (strange romance)
You Can't Get There From Here (even stranger romance)

All from Fantagraphics. If you like Lutes, I think you will like this stuff. Very different art style, but very similar pacing, structure, and tone.

And if you read this, you can say you read something that Mark Andrew likes too!
