Exciting uh? Oh btw, I wasn't talking about the frames but all the "non graphic" parts.

Don't worry Toto. I am completely anal about that. When I read a book, I like to read every single character, even the copyright information and the ISBN number. I'm insane like that.

Have you read American Gods?

Nope, after reading some things I didn't like I just stopped trying with him. And they were so not liked, that I cannot recall their names at present time. Was a while ago.

(I was away and didn't read this 'til today)

Did you read his books or his comics? Which comics? If you read, say, <i>Good Omens</i> and the first story arc of the Sandman, it's not enough to drop Gaiman, I'd say.

Books and comics. Like I said, I can't recall what they were. Just felt like I kept trying to like him, but it just wasn't happening.

Season of Mists (Sandman, Book 4) :3.5stars: It was really cool to learn about the Sandman's "family." Gaiman's brain should be put in a museum after he dies. It's fucking amazing how imaginative he can be.

A Game of You (Sandman, Book 5) :5stars: My favorite Sandman book so far. It's brilliant! Never what you expect as it stretches the notion of understanding and forces your brain to encompass all of the literary sublayers.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill for (Sin City) :4.5stars: My first Frank Miller book. Became curious after the promos for the movie at Comicon. It's edgy, hard, and exquisitely intense. I'm getting the feeling Frank Miller is the Johnny Cash of the comic book world.

Spivey- when you're done, (or right now) you should definitely check out The Sandman Annotations here: http://theory.lcs.mit.edu/~wald/sandman-index.html

It's astounding how much research/knowledge is packed in there.

Ok, I was watching Hellboy and right after he fights Sameal for the first time, Myers says to him "You've lost alot of blood.", to which Hellboy responds "This is nothin', you know what will kill me right?" But it is never explained, so, what will kill Hellboy?

Ok so I read Watchmen. It was just as totally amazing as everyone said. I was actually sad that it was over but then I realised I can just read it again, and I think it's gonna be just as awesome a second time. Rxfan also gave me these two very handy reference sites, check them out. (1 | 2). My favourite character came to be Rorshach - what an incredible character. Now I am eagerly anticipating this movie. :5stars:

More news too: Jude Law now says he's very interested in playing Ozymandias in the movie. More here.

You got it easy. You got to read it all in one sitting Im assuming. I had to wait a whole year back when I was collecting it. LOL

It is an awesome story though. I gotta dig out my copies and refresh my memory about it tho.

And yer right .... Rorshach kicks ass

Yeah read it all pretty much in one sitting. Or rather sporadically when I had time at work or travelling to or from. I liked that I didn't have to wait for new issues; I couldn't handle that.

I started reading Book 1 of Sandman a couple of days ago and it's completely mind-blowing.

I'm on Book 6. It gets even more mind-blowing. :o

After seeing the footage for the upcoming Sin City movie that Brodie posted, I am very very curious to read the graphic novels. I did a search on Amazon and found a handful of titles. I had a couple questions I'm hoping someone here can answer:

* Should I read them in any particular order? If so, is that the order I have them posted in below?
* Are there any more titles missing from this list?



Sin City
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Sin City: The Big Fat Kill
Sin City: That Yellow Bastard
Sin City: Booze, Broads, & Bullets (includes The Babe Wore Red; Silent Night; Lost, Lonely, & Lethal; Sex & Violence; Just Another Saturday Night)
Sin City: Family Values
Sin City: Hell and Back

I think they came out in the order you've listed them, but I'm not sure about the last two.
I don't remember if any other came out as well, but IMO they became less interesting as Miller kept putting out more books. The Best ones, as far as I remember are Sin City, A Dame to Kill For and That Yellow Bastard. I don't remember much of the others and it's been quite some time since I've read them.
Each book sends by itself, but characters and events from one book, reapear in another.

I've only read A Dame to Kill For and The Big Fat Kill and it didn't feel like I missed anything. It's frustrating trying to find the comic books now. I've been to almost every comic book store in LA and Manhattan, and they're always sold out.

I have had Sin City for about a year, and it's almost worn out.

I've never found any of the others at any stores, but with the movie coming out I'm sure the comics will soon get a big push like was done with Hellboy.

The only series I keep up with nowadays is Y: The Last Man, and only when they release the paperbacks.

I still do. I pick up most of the Marvel, non-mutant titles.

Off the addiction since ~ 1994. Before that I spent upwards of $100 most weeks, on pretty much everything and often multiple copies.

I know eventually my 12 full sets of Secret Wars will be worth thousands!
