Graphic Novel Elimination game

Recommended Posts

The Complete Maus 16

Watchmen 20

The Dark Knight Returns 19 + 1 = 20

V for Vendetta 21

Black Hole 19 + 1 = 20

Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron 14 + 1 = 15

Palomar: (Love and Rockets) [14 - 2 = 12

Hellblazer: Original Sins (Book 1) 12-1=11

The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes 10

Preacher Vol. 1: Gone to Texas 1 - 1 = 0! YES! I GOT TO KILL ONE!

The Walking Dead Omnibus(1-25) 6

 

Red-"Maus" isn't bad, but we have to wittle these G.N.s down. We can't keep all of them on here forever, and "Maus" just isn't in the same league as a lot of the other books on this list, in some of our opinions.

Maybe we should award an extra turn or a point to those that kill a title. It may speed things up. Just a thought. Any ideas.

It's as good as, or better than, most of them in some others' opinions, though (mine, for a start). That's the thing about differences in taste.

Eh, it seems to be going quickly enough. There've already been a couple of eliminations, and once it gets down to the favorites people will soon target certain choices for deletion or salvation with every voting round.

Like Mark said though, I don't think we're going to agree on books to eliminate or keep. I think there are a few books on this list that people consider favourites.

We've gotten rid of most of the books that weren't deserving of being on the list. Now, I think is where the game is going to slow to a crawl.

But, we'll see!

V for Vendetta has been getting knocked down today.

 

AFter this bracket A is complete would someone like to make a bracket B of 10 new graphic novels. I didn't want this bracket to be too full of Alan moore so there still is From Hell and much better Sandman storylines that are quite deserving.

Also to further speed things up you may go twice a day but after at least two people have voted. This should bring this round to a close by at least this weekend.
