About a year ago, I wrote a post about my Comic Book Confusion. Since I was at a loss about which comic books to read and where to start, I decide to ask an expert. I got my opportunity at Wizard World’s Comic Con in Tulsa last month. With so many artists and writers in attendance, and such a great program to choose from, I thought, surely I can get a couple of good recommendations from someone in the industry who should know. Right?
I have a list. Of course, I haven’t been able to read all the way through the list yet, but I’ve gotten enough of a start to be confident I’m going to thoroughly enjoy the rest of it.
Wait? What was that? You want to know what’s on my list? Okay, I’ll share.
The Comic Book To-Read List
- Saga by Brian K. Vaughn – Yes, this was already on this list, and along with Sandman by Neil Gaiman provided the basis for the rest of the list…also I’ve been reading all of the other volumes I can get my hand on, and eagerly awaiting the next!
- Dream Thief by Jai Nitz – I’ve read Volume 1 and couldn’t put it down. (I promise a full review is coming soon!) Volume 2 is sitting on my kitchen table. It arrived today.
- Rat Queens by Kurtis J. Weibe – I would like to say I can only read one book at a time, but I’ve already proven that I can. I just haven’t picked this one up yet.
- Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughn – He already hit one out of the park with Saga do we really doubt?
My first Comic Con was a resounding success. We all did a bit of amateur cosplay, fondled light sabers we could not afford, bought some amazing pieces of art, and met some fascinating people.
My one gigantic failing…not enough pictures! Somehow I got dazzled by “geekvana” and forgot to take pictures. Oh well, there’s always the next con.
What do you think of the list? Would you add anything?
‘Til next time,
