    I was happy to hear some love for the Rucka run on Wolverine!

     

    Both companies have some great books, and some clunkers. Historically I am a Marvel guy, but DC has the crown with Detective for now. Maybe Hickman can change my mind soon.

    That's fantastic, congratulations!

    I'll definitely second RASL!

    I'd also recommend...

    Sweet Tooth

    Winter World (just reprinted in a gorgeoud HC by IDW!)

    American Flagg! (Political Sci Fi by Howard Chaykin)

    Orbiter (My favorite Ellis Sci Fi)

    October 22, 2009 3:35 pm I actually do have a lectern in my house for reading the Oversized Hardcovers :) Bigtime HC fetishist here.
    September 4, 2009 5:24 pm @RolandofGilead - I've hearda couple different arguments on that one...especially for older stuff,the ads are nostolgic for people, like a time capsule... you also get fun letter columns and such. Some people do some prep work and cut out the ads where they can. Lots of small publishers put their house ads all at the back now, so you can lose them with very little effort. Newer Marvel comics are a pain to deal with though...almost all of the ads appear on the back of a story page, and they break the flow every 2 or 3 pages...frustrating to read OR bind. I usually wait for the trades or HC's of those. You can maybe tell I am a big packaging/book nerd? :)

    That's Library Binding. They are quite good,something to keep in mind though, the $15 bind is the really basic, no frills option. If you want nicer lettering, head and tail bands, book ribbon etc. that all costs extra. Great option though!

    I am a book binder and do a bunch of my comics into hardcovers. There are a bunch of pictures up here

    This is a really good comic book binding forum, lots of info and drool worthy pictures.

    I really enjoy the process of binding my stuff, but in the golden age of reprints, it seems like everything I decide to do gets nice special volumes right after I start mine (See Castle Waiting, American Flagg, Criminal etc. etc.) It allows you to put things together EXACTLY how you want though, which I find pretty valuable. 

    August 6, 2009 1:07 pm I'm with you 100% on this. I've had the (somewhat rare experience at this point...) pleasure of sitting down in the morning with a cup of coffee to read a few pages of a graphic novel before going off to run errands, and just sat and burned through the whole book, totally unable to put it down. That happened a LOT in July. I would add the 2nd Mouse Guard HC to the list as well, it was far superior to the first. Thanks July!
    June 26, 2009 1:04 am This book had unbelievably high expectations for me with my favorite writer, my favorite artist, and a (mostly) new high profile gay character...and holy crap it delivered. Loved it, and cannot wait for more. Great review Josh, thanks!
    June 10, 2009 3:34 am Good picks guys! I really like Freddie and me, as well as Sentences (possibly because I am really into queen AND hiphop). Some of my others would be Stop forgetting to remember by Peter Kuper, The various peepshow collections from Joe Matt, the playboy, and I never like you from Chester Brown, The Fart Party from Julia Wertz, My friend Dahmer from Derf, Complete lowlife from Ed Brubaker, Carnet De Voyage from Craig Thompson etc. etc. Obviously I really like autobio comics.
