King City

You should read King City by Brandon Graham. It's the best comic-book-type thing I've read in quite some time. The trade is a huge phonebook-sized thing and it's awesome.

It's hard to describe. Well, it's not hard to describe the plot, but it would sound really goofy, which it is, but it's amazing. This dude has a cat who can turn into lock picks or a grappling hook and he has to defeat a tentacle monster. And it's full of puns. But it's not really about that. You see what happens when I try to describe it? That's like saying Scott Pilgrim was about a slacker who punches people.

So you should just take my word for it and read it.

    It's no Nancy in Hell.

      I immediately googled this and was sorely disappointed by Nancy's hair. Also by the lack of Sluggo and Aunt Fritzi.

    Well, I've taken your word for it and bought it. It's been too long since I bought a comic-book-type-thing.

  3. Hmm, well the last comic book you recommended was Cerebus the Aardvark and I did not regret that (until about Reads).
