    Not sure if you have Netflix, but Jeff Lemire's Sweet Tooth is coming to Netflix the first week of June. I just finished that series and loved the hell out of it. It had a truly disturbing villain that I hated - just thinking about him now gives me the creeps.

    I'd recommend giving that a shot.

    Two other - super hero related - series I would recommend would be Kurt Busiek's Astro City and then Brian Michael Bendis's & Michael Avon Oeming's Powers. Two awesome series that definitely flip the super hero genre on its head.

    Oh - since Im sitting here looking at them all - I'm a huge fan of Greg Rucka (I will even overlook his bad taste is soccer teams . ..) - but he's had some great series in his career. Whiteout, Lazarus, Queen and Country, and Stumptown are probably my favorites.
    Astro City and Powers are so good. It’s been years since I’ve read anything. Your suggestions are kicking up my nostalgia.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I will do some research and see if anything sounds like it would work for me.

    A great addition to the collection.

    Also a pretty cool story, with or without the signatures.

    Due past experience reading Phillip K Dick I considered sitting this one out. It is not a story I was familiar with and it sounded intriguing so I bought it. When I get around to reading it I will decide if I should keep it.
