    Have you read any,do you consider them a serious read or not?
    Batman:The Dark Knight Returns is a favourite,The Watchmen and The Books of Magic are good reads.They're definitly not for kids.

    Graphic novels? I don't understand why they invented that term. Were they afraid someone might call them geeks or what?
    They're comics FFS.

    Ok,agreed G,but they are very long comics,hence they become Graphic novels,with chapters!

    The only comics I but any more are GN's or TPB's. For the monthlys I just download.

    Currently reading the Preacher series for about the 100th time this year.

    Batman: The Killing Joke is probably too obvious to be worth mentioning.
    It's hot in Topeka.

    a serious read? of course....we wouldnt they be? the only difference is that they have pictures ...if they didnt have pictures they would be just as good....i like that one story in batman black and white vol. 1 by brian bolland...its really short i know but its really good

I've read som batman stuff but they dont stick in my head, so i cant remember what happened in each graphic novel. But i have read the whole of Preacher which is amazing! I so wanna buy the hard copies.

    Neil Gaiman's Sandman is probably the only one I've read in a while.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t
