It is brilliant. Can't wait for the final trade in February!
I just finished The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes. I think it would make for a good movie.
I only read trades. That being said, I'm currently invested in 8 Image series and 7 Other. Zero DC & Zero Marvel - there's just too many teams/timelines/tie-ins/reboots to follow.
Q&C was good and The Sixth Gun is awesome but I still haven't forgiven Oni for dropping Resurrection. Still, I may give this title a shot.
Geez, how could I forget I Kill Giants! That should be the first one you buy.
The TPB for Mara containing all six issues comes out next month. Looks interesting.
Echo and Rachel Rising by Terry Moore
I'll second RASL, even though it has finished.
I'll also add The Stuff of Legend by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith. Just read the first three trades and it is pretty cool. The artwork is amazing. ...
The Sixth Gun
Looks like a new HC edition ("SMORGASBORD EDITION") of Chew will be released in October containing 20 issues. Also a HC for Revival will be released that same month.
This was a great book. I purchased it without knowing anything about the writer or the artist but simply on the story description alone. I enjoyed it immensely.
I really wish I had known a HC color collection would eventually be released before I went and bought the individual books. I just may have to double dip on this one.
I buy ebooks and paperbacks but when I really enjoy something I'll splurge for the hardcover upgrade. I also like to get the hardcover for series that I enjoy and when I cannot wait for the...
My 7 y.o. daughter likes the Word Girl series that Boom/KaBoom puts out. When she gets older I'll introduce her to I Kill Giants, Anya's Ghost, Bone, and A Wrinkle In Time (graphic novel version).
I believe you are thinking of some other book.
I think Bone would appeal to you, as it seems to fit most of your requirements.
You might consider Marvels by Busiek & Ross. It is a superhero book but from the POV of the guy on the street in...
Haven't read Invincible, Morning Glories, or Manhattan Project. Of the rest, I'd read Chew first.
Locke & Key!
Battle of the Planets!
As another older reader who doesn't want to jump into ongoing series with a lot of continuity, and who has also read several of the series you like, I would also recommend the following:
Thanks for the Spoiler Alert Kid Montana!
I didn't think it was as good as the other two. Of the three DaVinci Code is best, followed by Angels & Demons, then Lost Symbol.
I am also reading the trades. It is one of my favorites and it is really hard waiting for the next one - this month! Woo Hoo!.
Replay by Ken Grimwood. An excellent read.
