    I just finished the final issue of The Unwritten. I started reading it almost six years ago when #1 came out and there hasn't been a book I looked forward to more each month. It was one of the titles I had to read when there was no one home. Gaiman, Hickman, Ellis, Morrison...I love all those guys but there was something special about The Unwritten. I've even said that this was as good as Gaiman's Sandman and I still stand by it. I think the last book to mess me up this badly was the final issue of Y: The Last Man.

    Anyways, I've also read Outcast Vol. 1 by Kirkman. It's pretty good. It's a straight forward exorcism story but with much tighter writing than the last 3 or 4 The Walking Dead trades. And people talk like actual real people instead of giving speeches to each other nonstop.

    What volume is The Unwritten ending at? I got up to Vol. 5 but I haven't gotten to the rest, yet.

    And I agree, it is a fantastic series. Not sure if I share your sentiment about it being as good as Sandman, but that might change once I'm able to read it from beginning to end in its entirety.

    My comic guy swears by Outcast so I'll get around to it at some point.

    I just saw that Outcast tpb at the shop yesterday, and wondered what it was about. Thanks for the review.

    I just posted the full review here: https://nottooterrible.wordpress.com...obert-kirkman/ I don't do plot summaries or plot reveals so it's OK to read.

    Fernandito, these last few issues will be collected in Volume 11 and there was also the stand-alone graphic novel, Tommy Taylor and the Ship that Sank Twice.

    I saw Saga at the bookstore a few days ago and the cover instantly captivated me. Then, I realized Brian Vaughan did it, and now I really want to read it.
    Has anyone else read it yet?

    I have not (yet!) but everyone can't seem to not talk about it. Very popular!

    I'm putting it at the top of my list right now.

    Saga is an epic space opera/fantasy comic book series created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples, published monthly by Image Comics. The series is heavily influenced by Star Wars, and based on ideas Vaughan conceived both as a child and as a parent. It depicts two lovers from long-warring extraterrestrial races, Alana and Marko, fleeing authorities from both sides of a galactic war as they struggle to care for their newborn daughter, Hazel, who occasionally narrates the series.
    Everything about that summary is exciting to me.

    Amanda;

    After you inevitably get hooked on Saga, start The Unwritten. I promise you you'll love it.

    It's crazy that you say that, because I've already added The Unwritten to my to-read list on Goodreads. It's like you know me or something.

    Both Saga and The Unwritten aren't just great comics, they're great books, period. Any decent library should have them. I wouldn't suggest digital because some of the panels and spreads might not look as nice.

    I just read Black Science Vol. 2 and The Life After Vol. 1. They were both great.

    Sorry often his is the wrong place to ask (it probably is) but how do you guys store/display your comics? I'm only a King comic collector, and have mine on a shelf lined up like they were books. I have about 60ish and am wondering if there is a nicer way to store them. I don't really want to box them up though.

    Anyone have something cool to share?

    You're talking about collected volumes, right? Trade paperbacks, no individual magazine-sized issues?

    Agreed. I've been pushing graphic novels as viable literary devices for a long time now, but unfortunately those of us that feel this way are a vocal minority.

    The sad truth is that most people still consider GNs as juvenile. They hear the word comic and automatically think superheroes, BAM! POW! and block out the rest. They don't know of the complexity behind some of these stories. It's a shame, really.

    I just read Black Science Vol. 2 and The Life After Vol. 1. They were both great.
    Black Science is on my list.

    Have you read Pax Romana by Hickman?

    No I mean individual loose comics, although I do have about 7 of the hardback books for DT and The Stand.

    I used to keep mine in boxes, there really aren't many alternatives.

    I made this box in wood shop in high school that was about 24" x 36" x 36" and I kept a bunch of single issues in there, it was my favorite thing ever. I don't collect single issues anymore because they just take up so much space and it's a logistical nightmare to keep having to box them up since you can't display them the way you would a trade or hard cover.

    I keep my singles in boxes. I do have an idea for better presentation but no room in my apartment. I've thought about buying an Ikea bookcase (model "Billy") and installing wooden drawers in it with comics facing out. I'm pretty sure I'll give up as soon as I actually weigh the effort v. payoff ratio.

    Today was a good day:

    Nameless 1 by Morrison
    Postal 1
    East of West 17
    American Vampire 6 (second cycle)
    Wytches 4
    Birthright 5
    Cluster 1 (I was drawn to it because the cover looked familiar and yep, my hunch was right. It's James Stokoe who did Orc Stain. Unreal stuff)

    Goddamned Morrison broke my brain again. Honestly, I had to read it twice to get it and it's still a little unclear.
