You Decide 2005 (November)

It is once again time for the latest edition of You Decide 2005!!

The offer, as always, is as follows:

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.

It may not be instanteous, but I eventually get around to every title (or maybe one of my fearless blogmates will do a bit on it). I have bits lined up for almost all of the choices from last month, so let's see some more stuff along that line.

So a whole entry just on one comic that you think is cool...hopefully it will bring the attention of our five blog readers (plus the 10 other blog writers, so hey, that's, like, FIFTEEN possible new readers!!!).

Sound cool?

If so, then you decide!!

First time commenter here, just discovered you guys.

I decide, eh? Well, I've decided. 2 of the greatest comics series of all time:
Scud the Disposable Assassin (Rob Schrab)
Madman (Mike Allred)

Gotta go with Iron Ghost by Chuck Dixon. We're 4 issues into the 6-issue series, but it's an interesting mystery with excellent art and a plot/setting you don't see every day.

You can always try for Kling Klang Klatch by Ian McDonald and David Lyttleton from 1992. Cyberpunk Bladerunner style detective story done with teddy bears. Plus the main character is constantly quoting Tom Waits (which is always a good thing in my book).

It is for mature readers if you haven't already checked it out.

Quoting Tom Waits IS a good thing.

I think all of the picks are doable so far!

Ed Brubaker's vertigo trade, Scene of the Crime.

The first 3 issues of:
Night Mary (Remender/Dwyer; IDW).

I'd also say "The Winter Men" on WildStorm, but I think you're already reading that.

Or, failing that,

Little Lulu: My Dinner With Lulu, from Dark Horse.

If I haven't done a bit on Winter Men, I really should.

By the way, I love how Mo picked the one Remender book I am NOT currently reading.

She's a tricksy one, she is.

Gotta go with Boneyard from NBM Publishing. It;s bar none my favorite comic that I'm reading right now.

It only comics out Quarterly, but there are four trade volumes available (with Vol. 1 being in either B & W or Color, your choice).

There's my pick for you. :)

I'll lob you one underhand as you're probably reading it already: Grounded.

" You still haven't reviewed The Crossing!"

I literally have it in a pile next to my bed. The whole damned thing. It haunts me from there!!!

You're too kind, Kurt!

I'd like to see what you think of Walt Simonson's DC series Orion from a few years ago. I think the first five issues are reprinted in the trade Orion: The Gates of Apokolips. Just fun stuff accompanied by great visuals.

For some reason, my comments don't come through, but let me try again: True Story, Swear to God. Two trades are out, the first is "Chances Are . . ."

As I'm from Germany, I'll recommend something from there: try "Beach Safari" by Mawil, published by TopShelf in the US.

Or how about my current favourite, Morvan and Bucher's Wake series of graphic novels, published by (I think) NBM?
