    I would like to nominate Tale of One Bad Rat by Bryan Talbot and I know someone mentioned Blankets by Craig Thompson but since it is not on the list yet I would nominate it as well.

    Blankets was interesting. I wouldnt say it was one of my favorites, though I do own it. At one point I got a feeling that the author was from my home town as one of the characters was wearing a Columbia Sportswear jacket. I flipped to the back and sure enough.

    When two fit, it makes you think
    I got the cute one, my woman
    She says, "Lovin's all I bring"
    And it's her loving that's a wonderful thing.
    Lovin' yes we are, it's such a wonderful thing
    When two fit it makes you think
    See us both in the black
    She lays on me so relaxed.

    I was going to nominate Blankets. Thank you, oy, for freeing up one of my precious spots.

    The last volume of the Invisibles (The Invisible Kingdom)... and...

    Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on a Serious Earth.
    Spoiler:
    Because DC hasn't published a paperback of Flex Mentallo, I'm assuming it's out. If it's in, take off Arkham, so I can be the guy who voted for Flex. But I doubt it will be. I feel like I'm rambling. I am. I should just shut up.

    So hard to just pick two. I have two catagories when it comes to GN's. Litterary and just damn sweet. I tried to pick one of each.
    Done!! Nice picks.

    I got the Arkham, but cannot find The Invisible Kingdom... but do see The Invisables. A couple of different ones. Can you find the exact title and post it please?

    Tell me more about MegaTokyo razz. From what I know of it and from your post, these are just collections? I'll be looking into it while you tell me about it.

    oh, sorry, i misread, i thought we were nominating the series in General. So we're nominating individual volumes then?
    In that case I nominate Megatokyo Volume 3 and temporarily withdraw my Hellsing nomination.

    It's not a collection, it's a webcomic by Fred Gallagher. the series follows a storyline, where each individual comic is a continuation of the last. Each volume of it contains a few chapters of the series.

    razz - Sam had a question about Megatokyo... is it just a collection, or a story arc/story?

    We're definitely nominating individual graphic novels.

    We'll hold off before we put any up for you. Let us know about Megatokyo.

    You got the right Crow one, turtlex.
    Don't worry about my second nomination I put up...I was in a slightly(read:highly) altered state of consciousness when I posted, and even I have no idea what I was talking about.

    I'll come back with my second nomination soon.

    Elodin: "Tombs is for feckless twits who can't chew their own food. My boy's a Re'lar! He has the feck of twenty men!"

    Kvothe: “Books are a poor substitute for female companionship, but they are easier to find.”

    Simmon: ”It’s just ointment in case you get burned...but if you mix it with piss, it turns into candy.” Sim’s expression was deadpan. “Delicious candy.”

    I've never read it. I may have to look that up sometime.

    Let's give with the nominations people. I love learning about works in the comic world that I didn't know about before.

    Sam - I am going to go ahead and nominate The Dark Phoenix Saga by Chris Claremont.

    I am withholding my second nomination until I can think on it more!

    That is the million dollar question ain't it. You can change your nomination if you like Liz (either one of them). I won't hold it against you. Me against you, yes; changing your nomination against you, no.

    It's not going to be me.

    My 2 nominations are for...The Dark Knight Returns and The Killing Joke.
