Comic books are awesome! Comic book (or should I say a graphic novel?) is where literature meets art. And I’m not talking mainstream stories like The Avengers, Guardians of The Galaxy and so on. I’m talking stories that go further, stories that reveal our deepest fears and hopes. With that being said, here’s 10 comics that I think everybody must absolutely read!
Before I say anything, please note that this graphic novel made it to the Time’s “All-Time 100 Greatest Novels” list of 2005. And there’s a reason for that. Watchmen is a muder mystery that eventually unfolds into a global conspiracy while introducing the most amazing and complex characters ever.
This one is my personal favorite. This is a British comic book about post-apocalyptic Australia. The co-creator of this punk madness is Jamie Hewlett. Yep, the same guy who created Gorillaz. So, the story is about a crazy girl named Tank Girl who keeps trying to save the world, and her boyfriend Booga, who follows her everywhere and makes her tea.
Saga is a relatively new comic book series. From the very first issue you can tell it was influenced by Star Wars. A couple that happens to be of different species fall in love, have a baby, and live the life of outlaws. Ok, it might sound like nothing special, but trust me, you’ll love it. And it features an alien species that have TV sets instead of heads. How awesome is that?
Ok, you’ve probably seen the movie, but have you ever read the comics? If not, please, do yourself a favor and go read it right now!
