The central conceit of this, in a decade of ever-decreasing anonymity, is to basically sell myself to you (the reader), work out the issue of my credibility as a comic book critic, and give out more personal information than I am comfortable with.
So essentially, I’m supposed to be asking you to care about my opinions. It’s not a necessity to me if you care, and if you do, that’s great. I’ve been reading comics since I was 8 years old, starting out on Shonen manga and gradually working my way up to American and European comics. I still dabble in manga here and there. I’m not mutually exclusive with my tastes.
I suppose I should tell you what my favorite comics are. Since the list format is the most easily digestible method of doing this, here’s a list, #1 being my favorite and #10 still being a favorite but being the least favored among them.
#1. Shade the Changing Man – Peter Milligan and Chris Bachalo
#2 Transmetropolitan – Warren Ellis and Darick Roberts
#3 Multiple Warheads – the entire series – Brandon Graham
#4 Sandman Mystery Theatre – Matt Wagner and Guy Davis
#5 Arzach – Moebius
#6 Wonton Soup – James Stokoe
#7 The Boys – Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson
#8 Batman: Year One – Frank Miller and David Mazzuchelli
#9 Powers v1-2 – Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming
#10 Doom Patrol – Grant Morrison and Richard Case
As for why you should read my work, do so at your own risk. It’s terribly amateurish and barely edited. I barely work hard as it is. But still, I think I have some interesting things to say about comics. I prefer essays to reviews. This feels like a horrible dating profile.
Read at your own risk, or don’t. My opinion should not dictate your own. Check out my mad MS paint skills
