Comic Reading List

Yes, I’m a long time comic book fan (from before they were popular on hipster t-shirts).  Although, I’ve taken numerous hiatuses and I’m no longer a “collector” I still enjoy the graphic novel medium.  I recently shared my recent reading list with some friends on Google Buzz and asked for their recommendations for things I might have overlooked or otherwise not heard of.  Here’s what I got back:

    As someone that does a comic book podcast, those are some great selections. I’d also recommend some of the recent Amazing Spider-man trades. The Gauntlet arc has been fantastic. Another one i’d recommend is THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SCROOGE McDUCK. It won the Eisner a few years ago.

    Good call on Chronicles of Wormwood. I read the first series recently and have been meaning to try the second one soon!
