I love Watchmen. Though any novel is arguably the best, arguably.

Victor Von, as a fan of the genre, could you recommend another graphic novel?

I've only ever read Watchmen, Batman Year One, and The Dark Night Returns...

I am more important, listen to me, listen to me.

Read V for Vendetta, Hellblazer: Dangerous Habits, The League of Extraordinary Gentleman and Sin City (all).

And if you don't want to listen to me after all we've been through, most of those I only read because of VVD anyways.

Well, I've seen V for Vendetta and Sin City (some), so I'm not going to waste my cheese on those. The League of Extraordinary Gentleman was a shit movie, so I ain't goin' there either, which leaves only Hellblazer: Dangerous Habits. I'm guessing that one is about sticking pineapples up your ass, so that's definitely something I'm interested in.

Many thanks to your faces.

V for Vendetta is much better as Graphic Novel

If you don't want to read something you have seen get Sin City 7: Hell and Back. It is excellent. And not in movie form as of yet.

League of Extraordinary Gentleman is soo much unlike the movie. And soo much superior. You should just accept that Alan Moore is a God and read all his stuff. No, shut up, do it.

Wow, if you'd knew what movie came from Dangerous Habits, you'd be left with nothing to read from my recommendations.

Yeah, I know that, Bardock. I know that, but I've been corrupted by the shit movies. What can I do?

Is Hellblazer related in sperm to Hellboy? If yes, than that was a pretty decent movie.

Read good Graphic Novels.

No, I did not enjoy Hellboy, but I heard the Comics are supposed to be decent as well. And I want you to read Hellblazer..so don't find out what movie is related to it.

Oh, shit. I just IMDBed it. Constantine, eh? I quite liked that one, but I remember reading about how the source material version has him as an Englishman with pink hair, am I right?

Someone said The Sandman series is good. Is it? Good? Is it good?

Englishman yes. Pink hair no. Comic book is better than the movie. And man I'd have sworn you'd have hated that movie.

I heard so too, I just assume it is.

All these are good. Especially The League of E.G: the GNs are excessively brilliant- moreso the first, probably. I've never seen the film and I intend to avoid it.

Sandman is good. The Lucifer GNs are very good.

The Filth by Grant Morrison is very odd, and good.

All the Sin Citys are worth reading, even the ones from which the film was made. Seven is my favourite.

Anything by Alan Moore, essentially. Prioritise The League, and From Hell, which is absolutely incredible, though it is responsible for another not so great film.

I'll give 'em a try, Von. I'll give 'em a try.

What are some of your favorite non-graphic novels?

Oh, and what's wrong with the poll? People don't seem to be voting...

I would like to take this opportunity to say that Jon Ronsom has written a couple of interesting - and funny - books about real things. As opposed to 'not real' things.

'Them' and 'The Men Who Stare At Goats' being the couple.

Check out Maus. It's a great, great graphic novel.

Well, anything is arguably the best.

By the way, has anyone read The Good German? I'm a hundred pages or so in and I think it's pretty great.

I liked it. Barefoot Gen is supposed to be a really good Manga, I only read the first one though. I just thought of it cause they are often seen as well...similar due to the similar topic and bio(or autobio)graphic content.


And I think that was probably the point the Latverian wanted to make.

And no, but there's going to be a movie on it, isn't there? I think I read it in the movie forums.
