"Greg Rucka, with a rotating series of artists, craft a book that is as much about the bureaucracy of the spy business as it is about actually spying. Strong characters and modern day political intrigue make this the best spy book on the stands. Plus the definitive collections are a great deal to boot."
"More Alan Moore. This may be my favorite thing he has written. It's definitely not the technical achievement Watchmen is, but a great piece of fiction none the less. Great meditation on death, loss, and finding your place in the world."
"I don't have enough good things to say about this book. The life of an obituary writer is told through brief vignettes of the best moments in his life, each ending in his death. Thought provoking and emotional, joyous and somber. Must read for comics fans and non-comics fans alike."
"What would the world be like if half the population died in an instant. In the first issue Brain K. Vaughn kills off every male mammal on the planet save for one man and his pet monkey. Defined Vertigo for a new decade. Absolute must read."
"The little indie book that could. Not a fan of the recent zombie craze? Good, me neither. That doesn't stop this book from being the most compelling, rock solid, character driven narrative to hit the stands in years, if not ever. Believe the hype. This is the best thing on the stands by miles."
"Mazzucchelli delivers his first graphic novel and along with it gives a master class on how the sequential art can be used. One of the few comics that truly take advantage of the medium. A down to earth tale of an architect's life coupled with a genius level deconstruction of the form."
"Terry Moore is one of the best cartoonist working today. This long running series is his crowning achievement. Touching relationships, political intrigue, and a gripping crime saga make a truly original series. When you finish the last book, you will truly feel like you are saying goodbye to close friends."
"Crass, violent, vulgar and utterly fantastic. This one takes a little work to get into. Some may have trouble acclimating to Garth Ennis' absurdest sense of humor and sadistic character drama. Those that do will find a wonderfully bizarre western for the modern era."
"Whats left to say? It really is that good. From writing to layouts, nothing but class. A comics revolution was built on the back of this book (and DKR of course) and it is every bit as important today."
"Gonzo journalism in the future. Acerbic wit, black humor and seething anger make Spider Jerusalem a perfect anti-hero in a world lost in it's own technology. Think Hunter S. Thompson in a Brazil-style cyberpunk future."
"Ed Brubaker spins a noir-ish detective story that plays with all the P.I. tropes and still manages to feel fresh. Twist and turns abound. Beautiful Micheal Lark pencils, along with frequent Brubaker collaborator Sean Phillips on inks."
