PREVIEW: Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Universe Presents: The Atom"
So I finished Death Note (which was recommended by some commentators who I trust) a while back, and really liked it. So I’m looking for more options.
And I just KNOW I’m gonna regret this, but I thought I’d try democracy.
Four choices, you can vote. I will be spending my OWN money on this, so if you steer me wrong I’ll never trust any of you again.Â Voting ends whenever I make it to the comic shop next, probably Thursday the 15th.
Yotsuba - About a Five Year old girl. Looks kind of Calvin and Hobbesish.
Upside: I like Calvin and Hobbes, and Lynda Barry’s Ernie Pook Stuff is/are some of my favorite comics ever.
Downside: Looks… Awfully Cute. My cute tolerance is high, but not infinite.
One Piece - Has PIRATES!
Upside: I really, really like Pirates, and actively collect Pirate comics.
Downside: I don’t really know anything else about it. It’s not on any of the three-or-four Best! Manga! Ever! lists I checked out, unlike the other three.
Planettes: Sci-Fi Space Exploration. Upside: The couple panels I saw in my not-even-sort-of adequate research looked pretty cool. Also: Only four volumes. Downside: Astronauts in space and NOT, as far as I can tell, fighting giant laser octopuses. Could be boring.
Monster: Silence of the lambs type thriller, I think.
Downside: LONG. 18 volumes. Also not much of a change of piece.
And… over to you loyal(?) comment-tators. One man/gal one vote, unless you give a good reason. Then your vote is worth more.
