Since the whole “Crisis” thing is happening are there any sins from your past? By this I mean are there any big classic books/stories that you haven’t read or didn’t enjoy?
My list is quite huge since I’ve missed about 15 years worth of comics and even back in the day I couldn’t afford many books. So if it happened since 1990 assume I haven’t read it. In fact there is WAY more that I haven’t read. As an example I only read The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen this year. There you go – shocking isn’t it?
So before the cries of “Judas!” start I’ll make the first round of confession. (Sorry for making this post sound all Catholic I don’t know where it’s coming from). So here’s a partial list of “important” works I’ve missed and stuff I think I’ll enjoy but haven’t gotten around to buying or reading.
List of shame:
- Sandman by Neil Gaiman
- Swamp Thing by Alan Moore
- V for Vendetta
- From Hell
- Powers before they were at Marvel
- The New Teen Titans by Wolfman/Perez
- Hellboy (got the first trade)
- Y the Last Man (got the first trade)
- Ultimate Spiderman
- Arkham Asylum
- The New Frontier
- Daredevil by Frank Miller
- Crisis on Infinite Earths
I figure one shameful admission for each year I claim to have not paid attention to comics is enough. I know I won’t be picking up all this stuff here but I will be catching up on a few things. My girlfriend is interested in Y The Last Man so I’ll be getting the rest of that series first. Then it depends on my mood.
Post one shameful admission and I’ll send you a free comic. Nobody posted last week, so there’s still a good selection. And by good I mean a larger selection more than a selection of good comics.
