  • Do You Think Penny Marshall Had A Relationship With Michael McKean (Lenny On Laverne And Shirley)?
    Penny Marshall is not a lesbian, I wouldn’t care if she was, but she isn’t. She has been married twice and says in many interviews that she wishes she was married again.

  • Rickigrimes says:

    Are There Any Other Graphic Novels That I Should Add To This List? I’m currently making a list of writers/artists/comic books/other recommendations for a friend of mine. He’s interested in getting started with the medium as a whole, so no specific “type” of story. I’ve tried to give him some examples across several genres, though I have a huge lack of knowledge in the manga genre of comics. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far. Any further recommendations would be appreciated but please add a bit as far as reasons you found them interesting/worthwhile.

    Comic Book Recommendations:
    Writers, Artists, Books, Recommendations from Others

    Warren Ellis (EXCELLENT writer. Authority, Stormwatch, Freakangels it’s all brilliant)
    Alan Moore (Sometimes he’s hit and miss for me, I want to read his Swamp Thing)
    Kurt Busiek (Not read tons, but liked his superhero stuff. Really keen to try Astro City.)
    Garth Ennis (Very gritty/quite violent. Enjoyed Preacher, and War is Hell)
    Neil Gaiman (Good stuff. Sandman has some really excellent moments)
    Devin Grayson (I’ve enjoyed some of her Batman stuff)
    Frank Miller (I’m not a fan of Sin City -though it’s hugely popular – but some of his other stuff is excellent really liked 300)
    Grant Morrison (Like his mainstream style such as WE3 better than his “drug induced” writing eg Seaguy, which I thought was pants!)
    Mark Waid (I enjoyed his Kingdom Come books)
    Chuck Dixon (NOT a fan at all. I avoid books with his name.)
    Joseph Loeb (Don’t know him well, have read a couple of his Batman books but he’s decent)
    Robert Kirkman (“the zombie guy”, has best zombie series written (Walking Dead))
    J. Michael Straczynski (Excellent work on Supreme Powers)
    Mark Millar (Liked pretty much everything I’ve read of his, especially Jenny Sparks and Red Son)

    Have enjoyed their artwork to accompany the writers up above.
    Dave Gibbons
    Frank Quitely
    Dave McKean
    Steve Dillon
    John Cassaday
    Tom Raney
    Bryan Hitch
    Gary Frank

    Stormwatch (first four of the series)
    The Authority (First two of the series)
    The Walking Dead (probably the best zombie comic series)
    Supreme Power (Excellent take on the superhero genre, definitely worth reading)
    WE3 (Quite a good story. I think it’s being made into a film)
    Superman: Red Son (Superman alternate universe book – very clever, worth owning)
    Batman: Year One (enjoyable read even for non-batman fans)
    Batman: The Dark Knight Returns ( Buy it, read it, love it… great book)
    Maus I & II (serious, moving, and very well written by Art Spiegelman)
    Mouse Guard (David Petersen was writer, it’s kid safe, very cute, and well done. Enjoyable read for all ages)
    Arkham Asylum (this one is very hit and miss for people. I enjoyed it and it’s well worth having a look at it.)
    All Star Superman (To me this is the Dark Knight Returns of the Superman world. Keep your eye on this one. Really enjoyed it)
    Recess Pieces (Very funny but gory… Tagline George Romero gave us Night, Dawn and Day of the Dead but what about…. Recess.)
    Marvel 1602 (alternate timeline; heroes are born in ‘ye olde England’ rather than contemporary USA)
    Year One: Batman/Ra’s Al Ghul (One of the Grayson books I enjoyed)
    La Perdida (Not a “happy” book, and the characters aren’t overly likable, but it’s intereating.)
    Persepolis (Interesting take and use of the genre. Being made into a film.)

    Recommendations from Other Graphic Novel Nuts I know:
    Queen and Country by Greg Rucka
    Bone (many people recommend this one and I’m keen to have a peek)
    100 Bullets (Everyone I’ve talked to loves this one, it’s going to be the next series I purchase)
    B.R.P.D. (Supposed to be quite good, but fans of the books don’t generally like the Hellboy Films)
    Y The Last Man (Again, supposed to be a good series and I’ve had several people recommend it)
    Fables (Read a few of these, enjoyed ’em. Dunno if that’s enough for me to want to own them)
    Concrete (supposedly quirky environmental message – if I remember the recommendation right)

    So go for it, I’d love to have a big list for my mate to choose from and I’d love to see what you folks come up with for future recommendations for myself as well.


    • Curator says:

      That’s a pretty good list, okay so I would recomend adding :

      The Ballad of Halo Jones – This is by far one of the best comics I’ve ever read, it consists of 3 books (9 were originally planned but there were disagreements over the rights to the characters or something) set in the 50th century. They follow the life of a basically ordinary women named Halo Jones and her escape from a dead end life in a community called the Hoop located outside Manhattan. In book one she escapes the Hoop, book 2 he is aboard a luxury space cruise liner, book 3 she is a soldier in a futuristic vietnam style guerilla war that defies the laws of physics and time. Simply AMAZING! “Where did she go? Out. What did she do? Everything.”

      Tank Girl – As the name suggests, Tank Girl drives a tank, which is also her home. She undertakes a series of missions for a nebulous organization before making a serious mistake and being declared an outlaw for her homosexual inclinations and her drug addictions.

      Preacher – Preacher tells the story of Jesse Custer, a down-and-out preacher in the small Texas town of Annville. Custer was accidentally possessed by the supernatural creature named Genesis in an incident which killed his entire congregation and flattened his church. He then sets out on a mission to literally find god.

      I also recomend just about anything from Vertigo

    • Curator says:

      Mark Hamill

      I think his voice suits the cartoon adaptation of Batman. Nice maniacal laughter.

      (for the movie Jack Nicholson played it perfectly, dont be influenced by the Heath Sympathy votes)
