The Crow. This book had a profound impact on me at the time I read it. I was going through a very tough period in my life and found this work. HUGE impact.

Actually, yes I do, but can't decide yet.

I love the Crow GN. It's brilliant.

I just connect more with the L&R characters.

Well, I love The Crow, but I had to go with Tank Girl because it was my first love where comics are concerned.

Crow HAD to be in this one? seriously? couldn't have been in a different bracket at all?

I used a random picking program, and this is how it shook out.

Wow. Just... wow. You passed up The Crow for Tank Girl. Brandon Lee for Lori Petty. Only here could Lori Petty beat Brandon Lee. Well, here and at a lesbian singles bar.:P

04-24-2009, 05:01 PM

Except we're voting on the comics and not the movies! Hello !!!!

I can't believe you even mentioned THAT film and Lori Petty in my presence! It was as far removed from the genius that is Tank Girl as it could possibly be :angry:

:lol:

Wow... I can't believe LRH is beating Love & Rockets and the Crow!

Sam
04-25-2009, 06:35 PM
Some shocking results in all of the brackets I think. The Crow is now tied with LRH.

Brice

The Crow....but I've only read two of these.

Sam
04-25-2009, 09:51 PM
Now you just need to vote in the other brackets. Vote for Kingdom Come in bracket 2. Trust me, it's good.:D

SG - I feel your pain. This bracket is TOUGH !!!

I went with L&R, myself. The characters are just too great for me to ignore. I figure this is the one chance I'll get to vote on them.

If L&R wasn't in this bracket .... I'd be going with The Crow. Or Bone. Or Killing Joke.

Wow...I thought Blankets would take this easy. I mean, there are some other great books here, but Blankets is one of the best-crafted GNs ever written. I stand an amazed cyborg.

:borg: <-- amazement
