This weekend I swapped comic book recommendations with a few folks. Today I was emailing someone a few of my favorites and thought “I should just put this up on the blog.”
So to call out a few comics I’ve enjoyed:
– Sandman – the classic Neil Gaiman books that make it “okay” to be a comic book fan for me.
– Transmetropolitan – a gonzo journalist in a 21st century Gibson-esque world.
– Powers – about how police and the rest of the world might deal with people with superpowers.
– Fables – wonderful graphic novels about a world where fairy tales bump up against our world.
– Lucifer – originally a spinoff from Sandman, but satisfying in its own right. It’s about the devil.
By the way, I recently went through a phase of finding some fun web comics. At the risk of sending folks down a deep rabbit hole, consider these links as starting points:
