Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2
I'm late to the party but Astonishing X-Men is greatness. It's like reading Claremont's entire run but with a better sense of humor. You'll dig it a lot Striker.
Kingdom Come is so OVERRATED. But yeah I like Jim Lee so there is that too.
Watchmen is advanced comic book reading. You're going to miss a lot that's in there, but fortunately it really is that great so you'll read it more than once and pick up on stuff you missed the first time.
