    who here has read the walking dead comics?

    Hello, I read ten years of TWD in six months. The comic or rather graphic novel was very good. It had good writing with good developing characterization and never felt contrived, but Zi finally tired of reading the series, so I am going to see if I can download the volumes, and see if anyone...

    What are some of your favorite books that changed your life?

    Serpico by Peter Maas was a big influence on my life. He was honest. He would not steal or accept graft. He had high ideals, and tried to fight against the wide spread corruption. He was almost murdered for his efforts.

    Which magazines do you read?

    The online Paste Magazine which is good though I do not recommend their book section and AARP which I used to think was junk, but now that I am closer to retirement, I am enjoying the magazine much more. Otherwise, there is so much free content on the Internet, why bother.

    Selecting Comics and Graphic Books For Adults

    Thank you. I found a couple mature and young adult titles at Alterna. There, I saw a link that led me to comixology and finally to the Ignatz awards where I really found interesting titles. I have been looking for titles that take you beyond the obligatory sex and violence.

    My Favorite Graphic Novel This Year So Far

    Hi. I am reading DMZ right now. It is a pretty good story, but I am losing interest. I bought Sex. It is about a former superhero that is learning to live like a normal person. The reviews were very divided.

    Speed Reading

    I think speed reading is disrespectful to an author who you are supposedly interested enough in reading, but you are not willing to take the time to really comprehend what feelings and thoughts the author wants you to experience. Every word that is written by an author, especially a good...

    Selecting Comics and Graphic Books For Adults

    I do not have many sources to finding graphic books that are going to be of interest to me. I have passed the stage of reading about superheroes. Paste Magazine has a section for comics, but it is difficult to be certain that a reviewed title is going to be of interest to an adult. Occasionally...

    My Favorite Series Read This Year So Far

    In about six months I read ten years of The Walking Dead. The continuing story line held my interest because of the very good character development and in all that time, there was never a contrived plot. Robert Kirkman is the creator of The Walking Dead. It is amazing that he stayed with the...
