    Re: Best Graphic Novels/One-shots

    Ok, so I started reading Sub-Mariner The Depths, and at the first issue I was like "meh.."

    But now the second issue is out, and I literally got chills up my spine when I finished it. Story is awesome kind of thriller-esque, kind of noir you can't really tell what's fantasy and what's reality, all we know is that Marvel wrote it and Namor is one of their characters.

    However in this book, all those rules are thrown out the window, as we peak into a very strange reality that seems to not have superheroes. It's actually pretty mystifying by the second issue, but I will admit the first didn't really draw me in that much; the second did win me over.

    Also if you want to check out the completed product or wait to see how others review the entire plot, maybe wait until more issues are out, but for a start it is great (Although Marvel Events tend to have awesome starts, and crappy endings.. except for Namor's last war with Shield and Silent War)

    Good English-Language Graphic Novels?

    Do you know of any good graphic novels in English? I am looking for something similar to seinen manga, i.e. mature themes, good plot and character development. Great artwork wouldn't hurt too. And nothing about superheroes, please.

    Just finished Habibi by Craig Thomson. It's massive (665 pages) but once again a remarkable work. Blankets was already very good, this one has definitively put him in the comic author I will follow.
