Ummm...Is This Thing On?

It's kind of fitting...

A long time ago in a galaxy that's...well...this one, a guy by the name of Alan David Doane prettty much renewed my interest in comics. Eventually I started this blog, and for awhile I wrote for Comic Book Galaxy, Alan's site. Unfortunately, my interest in comics lessened due to various factors, and I pretty much disappeared from it all.

For all intents and purposes, I was out...so leave it to ADD to pull me back in (only the seven hundreth time I've made that reference!), even if it is just briefly (who knows, it may not be).

Over on his blog he's posted a list of his "100 Must-Read Graphic Novels." His list is actually in response to Eddie Campell's remark (yes, on his blog...) that "anyone who thinks there are more than a few dozen graphic novels worth reading is an idiot." Which in turn is an aside to Joe McCulloch's review of a book called The 500 Essential Graphic Novels...and the fact that it doesn't list any of his (Campbell's) works (I think). It's all quite dizzying.

So, as I sat at my comp eating ice cream and watching "Scrubs" on DVD, I read over ADD's list. Of course I knew going in that I'd be ashamed of how many books he lists that I haven't read (Seriously Batman: Year One & Daredevil: Born Again, why haven't I read these? Hell if I know) that's usually the way it is with his lists. I knew I'd be surprised at a few of his pics (War Stories by Ennis & Co. is a big example...I do love it, but not my first choice of Ennis' works) as well as a few things he left out (Blankets to name one). But, hey, he never claimed it was some definitive list, just a list.

Then, at the end he throws it out there.

"What's your list?' He asks.

Dammit all to hell.

So...like ADD before me I'll try to limit creators to just a few books, and I'll go ahead and say that mine is likely to be more superhero heavy than his, just cuz that's how I roll. Also, I'll go ahead an get the duplicates from his list out of the way...and I may be stretching the word "graphic novel" a bit, not sure if everything I list is available in a collected format. And I doubt I'll make it to 100.

So, that's 50, 39 of which aren't on ADD's list. I'd say 139 is more than a few dozen (It's actually slightly more than eleven dozen...)

EDIT: I should never write posts at three in the morning...good God there were a lot of spelling errors.
