Graphic Novel Elimination game

Possibly, although it wasn't actually Vertigo at the time and there was Foxglove's ex meeting a terrible fate in 24 hours as well.

I'd be more inclined to suspect Kathy and Lenny set the ball for that one rolling in Shade: the second the comic moves to the Vertigo line they become a couple.

I think your right the Shade lesbian episode took place fairly early on and the Animal man one with his wife much later.

And few could dare to vote for Hellblazer......Those who did were ritually sacrificed to a giant effigy of a graphic novel. The same goes to those who call them comic-aaagh!

 

There's a Maus thing at the school library, wheree I'm at copllege, I never realised they had....good stuff there. It's scary for me. Oh so scary.

Thanks for trying to save Preacher :)

I think Mark's argument against the Sandman actually stands in that case, unfortunately: it's the worst preacher collection of the lot, and that's including Salvation and Ancient History.

Youre welcome.

I dig Ennises classic-horror-comics-style, of which i read some when i was a kid, and it had a certain emotion to read them (Maybe fear? :lol:), so it fucks my mind and sensation everytime till it spits out certain memories and feelings, and i like that (Along with Delano).

True.

 

Until the End of the World is one of my favorite stories in any medium ever. Should've gone with that one.

You're serious? Wow. To my mind, the first two volumes of Preacher are head, shoulders, body, legs & feet above anything else in the series.

 

I would suspect you of being the Anti-me, only then there's your fondness for Maus, Prog, John Cale...

The second one is quite a way above the first one, surely?

I'm not having a go at you, Christian, but that would be a lot clearer if you'd removed the former additions and subtractions before posting it...

I'm sure everyone here is smart enough to use the last number they see and also smart enough to figure out that I didn't decide to use double my possible points for the day....but I'll edit it.

Brokeback Christ!

How is Watchmen behind V for Vendetta?

Spose most think it will win anyway?

 

If From Hell had been up there though, it would be sucking up my points.

I only had at most two graphic novels per author. Which is pretty hard when it comes to alan moore.
