Sounds like you've made up your mind, but if you come into another spare $20 get Watchmen. A bloody *classic* by Alan Moore, thought-provoking and self-contained. You'll dig it massively. It's deep, full of seemingly throwaway background detail that furthers the story, and has killer art by Dave Gibbons. Buy it, you'll like it.

And for anyone with a spare $30, get the Alan Moore "Supreme: Story of the Year." It's less profound, but a must for anyone enamoured of Superman archetypes. The art is a mixed bag, but the story will make any old school Superman fan very happy. I bought it even though I couldn't really spare the money, and made my brother swear not to tell my mother about my purchase, or the cost ^^; . It was worth it ^_^ .
Ok, bye.

Hmm...I wouldn't get a single thing that anyone recommended...I hate indy stuff and am a Marvelite through and through...

If I had $29, I'd get the second installment of the Marvel Star Wars tpb. I have the first one and really want all 5 volumes!

My best friend is a Marvel head, so I know where you're coming from (I'm a DC girl myself). Hey Bane- why not try Squadron Supreme if you haven't already? It's by Marvel, came out in the mid 80s, and influenced many a superhero deconstruction afterwards. Of course, you probable already have it, so just ignore me ^^: ...

Well, oneeyed Smiley....

I don't have it. I really only like Mainstream Marvel Universe stuff. Squadran Supreme is not in the "main" Marvel Universe. I have all the Essentials and a boatload of TPB's...

Yeah, I hear where you're coming from. I only watch action movies, and at that, only Arnold Schwarzeneggar movies. In fact, only the Terminator movies and Predator. I tried watching "Kindergarten Cop" and "Running Man" once, but I didn't enjoy them. So I really don't think I would enjoy comedies or sci-fi.

I find it's best to limit myself. If you spread your interests around, they wear thin.

Ow...Those hurt. I guess every woman would want a guy like me...I will never make them do that...Maybe it's just me but I don't like teeth and an attitude anywhere near down there...
