New to this stuff

Postby Paella » Sun Sep 04, 2016 9:50 am

Hello,
Im new to comic books (and forums in general) but i made my account anyway.

After finding out my favorite film originally started out as a graphic novel, i read it and loved it even more than the film. i really enjoyed it so i want to read more comics and hopefully get some guidance.

thanks for reading. x

You're doing just fine :thumbsup2:

I've heard so many good things about the GN, and I think most of the opinions I've heard about the film are favorable, but I honestly never tried either one :bricks:

I never read the GN but I enjoyed the film. It stars that lovely little tart Natalie Portman.
I knew it first as a video game my brother used to play. It seemed interesting, but I never got into it myself.

You picked a great author to start with, I think Alan Moore is the best writer comics has ever had. Have you seen Watchmen? The GN is better :mrgreen: written by Alan. Swamp Thing, Miracleman, Top Ten, I could go on and on. Ironically V for Vendetta is not one of my favorites, probably because of the art.

And just to get really geeky, V was a 12 issue comic series, not a GN. Watchmen is the same, it was a. 12 issue series but most people buy the trade paperback now.

Also be warned, some of Moore's stuff can get freaky weird, so investigate before purchasing. I don't think you should read Neonomicon next, lol.

Why are some comic collectors so proud to have fake OCD? Is it cool to pretend to be mentally ill?
