    Here's a few from me.

    Alan Moore's run on Supreme. There is two trades collecting all of this.
    MORE MIRACLEMAN.
    Showcase Presents Warlord volume 1-Great Grell artwork with decent stories.
    Essential Killraven-One of those great Marvel's 70s non-superhero titles that gets almost no talk.
    YEAH!- I know,I know I talk about this book all the time. But that is because I believe it should have been huge. And how can I pass up an all ages book by Peter Bagge.
    The Maximortal and/or Bratpack-With the geeks doing the One as a BOMC selection. I am wanting to hear their thoughts on more Veitch superhero deconstruction.
    Didn't trade come out recently that collects the first 6 issues of Afterlife with Archie? If so that is one I would love to hear the geeks thoughts on.
    Bat Manga-I know Murd has read it. What about the other geeks.
    Judgement Day by Alan Moore-Moore's rebooting of the Extreme/Awesome universe. Which seems to be forgotten.

    Bratpack...wow. I recently found my tpb from a NY con from the Pentahotel? Penta Hotel?

    It has a different ending than the issues.

    Maximortal would be cool, too. Good call, @dubbat138 .

    The trade is due out very soon, so I'm suggesting "The Valiant". The recent mini-series writeen by Jeff Lemire & Matt Kindt. It's of course published by Valiant Entertainment. It's a nice self contained story & a great chance for new universe to give the universe a chance.

    Hope that sounds good to anyone else.

    Totally agree. This a great series. Art, writing, the lot.

    I'd love to hear the geeks views.

    I concur. Would really like to hear of a bit more Valiant reviews from our favorite geeks. I think the occasional wading into the Valiant pool would be a benefit to new readers as long as it was more than just lip service. Grab their 2015 FCBD offering as a primer and dig in.

    The Valiant would be a great choice! I really would like to see some that divert away from the mainstream a bit, I'm wondering if there are any non-fiction comics that would be good for BOMC.
  • As far as nonfiction goes, someone suggested Understanding Comics, which I think would be incredibly interesting. Fun Home or Persepolis could be neat, too.
  • luke52luke52 Posts: 1,317
    Non-fiction wise the guys really should do The Fifth Beatle.

    Beautiful book.

    Yes! I post the same suggestion. Stay out of my mind, @luke52

    And, everyone should own this book. It's like 20 bucks.

    Scalped from Vertigo

    Scalped from Vertigo

    That first volume would be a great BoMC selection. Scalped is incredible and I would love to revisit that series

    I'd like to see the guys follow up on at least one of the 2000 AD offerings that Caliban offers each year.

    Also:

    Marshal Law
    Lazarus
    Black Science
    Great Darkness Saga

    and I'm sure many, many more.

    Make that two of us for Marshal Law and Great Darkness Saga. And let's add Dreadstar to that list.

    I would love to have a Marshall Law BoMC, I think DC made a reprint a few years ago.

    Add me in for Marshall Law.
