Quote from: ARKHE on December 11, 2011, 03:07:37 PMAfter reading some Gaiman, Hellblazer & other Vertigo stuff ten years ago, I rediscovered the whole deal with graphic novels recently. Got some Jodorowsky stuff (Technopriests and the Incal) at the library - even though the manuscript is oversimplified and obvious, the whole visionary aspects behind the storylines are huge.

Quote from: bitewerksMTB on May 16, 2012, 11:21:12 PMHas anyone read the CROSSED FAMILY VALUES or CROSSED PSYCHOPATH comics? F.V. is available as a book with all 6 issues. Kind of curious about checking these out based on the violent gory covers.
Quote from: ConcreteMascara on July 19, 2012, 04:26:54 PMDon't know if it's been mentioned here before but I remember enjoying the Hard Boiled mini-series, by Frank Miller and Geof Darrow, in high school. Lots of super detailed city shots, cyber punk visuals, ultraviolence. That kind of thing. And a Blade Runner inspired story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_Boiled_%28comics%29

Does it stand up to Grant Morrison's Animal Man? I am a huge fan of that whole series, including the meta-story stuff, but even before he really gets into that I think the character is very well written. Things like the archetypal field theory turning a pretty dumb concept for a superhero into something a lot more interesting. Is this angle maintained in the new book?
