    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.

    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

    Some shocking results in all of the brackets I think. The Crow is now tied with LRH.
