    This is a killer bracket ... Maus and V.

    Had to go with Maus, though. It is absolutely perfect.
    The Man In Black Fled Across The Desert...

    ...And The Gunslinger Followed.

    I had the same problem. This is tough for me because I haven't read many gn's to date, but these are the two I've liked the most. Had to go with Maus though.

    It's tough for me too Pam. But there is that whole Pulitzer Prize argument.

    Actually... I sort of just thought about both of them and though they're both excellent... Maus is just really, a more moving and touching story...

    ... Plus, you know, it won the Pulitzer.

    V is definitely in my top list of best GNs though. Like I said... tough bracket.

    That was it for me as well. I can't help but see Maus through the perspective of my family history so it resonated with me on that level, which is not to say V for Vendetta doesn't resonate with me because it does, but not to that extent.
