I would like to take a moment to promote another comic, this time a webcomic that has been running for a VERY long time: Sluggy Freelance.
I first tuned into this incredible and crazy story back in 1998 if you can believe that. I was still in my 20's, y2k hadn't happened yet, and the whole world was different. This comic started in 1997 and is STILL going strong.
It's quite strange to have been following this for so much of my adult life...I can remember the Y2K plotlines, the dot-com beginnings, and where I was in my life at the time. It was going strong when I bought my first house...and when I sold it almost a decade later.
Do check it out. Go all the way back to the simple beginnings and watch Pete's artistic style grow by leaps and bounds. You'll be happy when you finally learn what "Code BOOM" means. And you'll be blown away at the plot twists and turns, and just how far back Pete went when he started weaving his plotlines together.
Graphic Novel? Pffft. Somehow this is more graphic and more than a novel ever could be.
