Was considering getting some of the 100 Bullets stuff. I've never really given graphic novels a chance because it always seemed childish, but a friend of mine showed me some and it looks slick (but I don't trust his opinion after he got everyone to see the new Hellboy movie).

Got a book on knots. Insanely useful.

Also, a skill people quietly appreciate when they actually need it. I mean no chicks ever going to polish your knob for using the right type of hitch but small victories, right?

You should make a thread with no words, just endless weird panels of comics known and unknown making some kind of story.

Looks like a good read for 25 quid. I've got plenty of fitness books to buy but learning about 15th century wrestling techniques sounds good to me.

Well it's a toss up between that one and this one:

I really liked it.

It's completley bonkers but it's really awesome as well and has really cool bits in it and it's just so freakin' deep, man.

Also it has a lot to say about philosophy that I enjoy reciting at philosophers to enrage them.

I've been saying it forever, but Timeline-191 is pretty good. It's a huge mishmash of 20th century history given an American makeover.

You've go Mormon jihadists, Canadian nationalist resistance movements,black communist uprisings in the south, confederate nazis and WW2 and WW1 taking place in America as well as Europe.

If you're willing to wade through 13 books at over a thousand pages long then go for it.

I crashed and burned though.

As far as the books themselves go, I did enjoy them. I just lost interest by the end.

Where did you get that scan from? I've only read the first three issues I got hard copy.
