    December 12, 2010 6:41 pm I would like to see Judgemental Cap America speaking with Hulk Thor! :D
    December 12, 2010 5:57 pm Another great episode guys! If it weren't for you guys I wouldn't even be interested in the comics medium.
    December 8, 2010 10:55 am Yeah I'm sorry but after watching Clannad After Story episode 18 all other works of fiction in all  mediums and forms are nothing. I think that's the first and only work that ever made me cry.

    Aww no mention of South Park? Come on the past few episodes were rich in comics and pop culture references.

    Anyways congrats guys on 5 years! Truthfully this is my only form of entertainment at college. I can listen to hours to you guys talk. Continue the good work!

    I haven't read too much manga so I don't know what would be considered the Watchmen of manga but from what I heard 20th Century Boys would be up there. Though I haven't read it the wiki page on it looks interesting.

     

    But if you want a good mind screwing Japanese work I would recommend Umineko no Naku Koro ni which is considered the Watchmen of sound novels, a medium we don't have in America. It's written by Ryukishi07 who would be considered the Alan Moore of Japan. For me personally his mind games make Alan Moore's work look like nothing (no offense Mr. Moore).

     

    Saya no Uta is a good horror story that ties in Lovecraftian elements. It's really scary and psychologically messed up my mind. Unfortunately IDW adapted it into an American comic which as an horror piece.

     

    I guess The Melacholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is the most popular thing in Japanese pop culture now which is the Watchmen of light novels that was adapted into an extremely popular anime and manga series that took Japan by storm over night but I'm not sure normal comic readers would like it.

     

    Oh definately the Watchmen and Citizen Kane of visual novels and anime is Clannad but it was adapted into a horrible manga so don't even bother reading it, its like comparing the LOEG comic to the movie adaption. But if you want to watch a masterpiece of animation that surpasses Disney and Pixar Clannad would be it. It's also the most emotionally touching work of fiction out there, all my friends who are in the Marines cried watching it.

     

    I would recommend you wiki: Umineko no Naku Koro, Saya no Uta, Cross Channel, Higurashi no Naku Koro, Clannad, Death Note, Baccano to name a few of the works I enjoyed.

    November 12, 2010 9:05 pm I haven't read all of Bakuman but from the parts I read it seems interesting. It appears from my reading that breaking into the Japanese manga industry makes getting into the American comic industry a piece of cake.

    September 5, 2010 7:49 pm Storyline reminds me of Japanese visual novels like Cross Channel and Higurashi.
