    AH. I'm not into the superhero comics. I have a bunch of current comics downloaded but with new issues coming out a month apart I have a hard time keeping track of what is going on so I only keep up with The Walking Dead. I got all caught up on Saga at one point then when the next issue came out I started reading and was like "well shit, none of this makes sense now because I can't remember shit about what I read a month ago."

    Completed comic series/graphic novels I have read include:
    28 Days Later
    Alex + Ada
    Blankets
    Bone
    Essex County
    Infinite Horizon
    Jane
    Locke & Key
    Preacher
    Scalped
    We Stand On Guard
    Y: The Last Man

    Ive heard good things about saga. I also like the show Preacher, so I probably would like the books. Any other recs?

    I've only read parts if any at all but they all seem to have a pretty good reputation. Some of them are more along the line of graphic novel as opposed to comic book though.
    • 100 Bullets
    • American Vampire
    • Berlin
    • Calexit
    • Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
    • Deadly Class
    • DMZ - never have been able to get it finished because it is a pretty long one, but it's good
    • East of West
    • Fables
    • Giant Days
    • Harrow County
    • Hellblazer
    • Indoctrination
    • Lucifer
    • Lumberjanes
    • Maus I and Maus II - literary classics from what I have read, actually won one of the Pulitzer special awards that have only been given out 44 times. Time put it at seventh place on their list of best non-fiction books from between 1923 and 2005
    • Outcast
    • Paper Girls
    • The Sandman - there is a whole gigantic Sandman universe
    • Sex Criminals
    • Southern Bastards
    • The Wicked + The Divine
    • Valerian and Laureline

    When I am done with my current job at the end of the calendar year, I intend on getting back into reading comic books. Some of the most creative story telling in the literary world comes from comics.

    Also, from my first list, I'd rank the top three as Y: The Last Man, Scalped, and Bone. Y is going to be a TV show on FX and I can't wait.

    House of X and Powers of X are amazing at Marvel right now.

    Completely game changing.

    I got chuck brown to autograph my copy of volume 1, issue 1 at scratch and spin like 6 months ago. Shits great. It's just about this black family from Harlem who go around killing cracker assholes.

    Nice. I know Chuck too and I have #1 but haven’t read it yet. I followed the Sanford Greene guy on Instagram and he has really cool artwork

    House of X and Powers of X are incredible reads right now.

    And I haven't read X-Men regularly for years.

    How cool is that? I wonder if he's met Ryan Coogler yet. Think this will be a Netflix thing or what?

    Having never read or consumed hardly any XMen, can I pick up episode 1 and enjoy?

    Picked up HoX1 and PoX1 this weekend. I’m a little overwhelmed/confused trying to figure it all out, but it’s definitely intriguing.

    The Rise of Kyle Ren mini run is really good. Highly recommend for any Star Wars fans.
