    Joss Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men was what got me back in.

    After reading Garth Ennis' Punisher, i think that's not true :mamoru:

    Fucking :werd:

    How can you not have a supervillain made out of shit in a movie? Seriously? That'd be just badass. Oscar nomination stuff right there.

    Watchmen is well written
    but it doesn't account for the millions of styles and flavor of comic books out there.

    i don't think saying its the pinnacle of even superhero stories is accurate

    Also, Checkout Invincible, the kevin smith run of daredevil (guardian devil) and his Green Arrow.

    I was thinking of getting some Frank Miller after, but i'm new to graphic novels also.

    I wish TWD had infinite volumes out already so I could just keep reading them. So good.
