Stranger Than Fiction: Nonfiction Writers Who Would Create Awesome Comics
Comic books have a nasty habit of forever being associated with superheroes. Even among people who should know better: regular comic book readers.
- Make Me a Woman, Vanessa Davis A collection of Davis's wonderful autobiographical strips, illustrated in beautiful watercolors.
- Footnotes in Gaza, Joe Sacco Reportage in graphic novel form isn't as widespread as I'd like, but no one does it better than Sacco. This new softcover edition looks at the bloody and heartbreaking 50-year history of Rafah, a small town on the Gaza Strip.
- Everybody Is Stupid Except Me and Other Astute Observations, Peter Bagge He might be most known for his seminal late 1990s series Hate, Bagge has reinvented himself as commentator thanks to a regular gig with Reason magazine. This collects many of his opinion strips.
- Strange Tales II #1 Another assortment of alt-comix creators trying very hard not to desecrate Marvel's beloved intellectual properties.
- Superior #1 Mark Millar has said his dream is to write Superman. Instead of waiting for his chance, Millar has done the next best thing and created his own Superman analogue instead.
