Discuss all things sequential art (comics, graphic novels).
What are your favorites, what are you reading, what do you think about the genre as a whole etc.?

That's gotten raving reviews from Josh and friends. Hopefully I'll get around to reading it someday.

I've been wanting to order this for a while now:

the problem is that sometime in the last week or two, it went from about $45 to $96 on Amazon.com. I'm looking into that. I hope it goes down or I can find somewhere else to get it cheaper.

These are the only two comics I've ever been interested in. More so The Walking Dead than the joker. I need to pick some up.

Idk it was in the pocket in the back of the seat and the girl driving was being super hateful and wouldn't let us listen to anything cool. So I had to pass the time some how.
