I went with Tale of One Bad Rat here. It's my wife's absolute favorite, and she asked me to vote for it so I did.

But I'm voting for Kingdom Come from here on if it progresses past this round.

Had to go with V for Vendetta..... Kingdom Come would have been my second choice.

Another hard bracket.

Sam - You really need to get your wife her own account!

I know, but to set her up an account just to vote in this seemed too much like cheating. I don't want to cheat with comics. Besides, if Kingdom Come ain't popular enough to make it through this round, so be it.

If it comes to a tie though, I'm voting for KC dammit.:P

Well... it would only be cheating if you made her vote along with you, right?

I mean, if she's got her own opinions, then that's not cheating.

Your call, bud.

Darn it! I had to go with V For Vendetta, even though I love Hewligan sooooo :cry: Watchmen and V are the salt and pepper of graphic novels, its just standard that everyone should own/have read them.

I was shocked when I clicked on Locke & Key and saw 2 other votes. :) I was worried I would be the only one.
I just loved it, and since it's the first graphic novel I've read it will always have a special place in my heart.

Oh, I'm not surprised, Heather. Joe Hill has a lot of fans here.

Wow, it seems no one liked Kingdom Come besides me and one other person. I'm beginning to wish I hadn't voted for my wife.:panic::arg:

Again, I missed most of those. (Would love to read Locke and Key by the way.)

Has to be V for Vendetta for me though. Such a great thought provoking read.

It's a classic.

Sam - Not gonna happen my friend.

Some of these brackets are just too darned tough!

Sam

That's what I'm afraid of. But, if it don't have enough support to get out of the first round, it wouldn't make it.
