GRAPHIC NOVELS

.

Reviews, Reading Guides, Wallpapers and more…

Nothing but a fancy word for comic books you say? Such I thought as well until recently, it began with my interest in ‘Watchmen’, now a year a later I find my bookshelf collecting beautiful pieces of literary art ranging from ‘Marvel Civil War’ to the epic event that was the ‘Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War’.

On this page I will be frequently adding reviews, release dates, reading guides and some epic wallpaper and photos for each of the collected titles I’m looking in to. To be honest I’m not a big fan of Marvel, so apart from ‘Civil War’ I doubt there will be anything happening on that side of life that’s going to draw me in.

Summary: Best-selling writer Grant Morrison (BATMAN, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, JLA) and critically acclaimed artist J.G. Jones (52, Wanted) redefine what it means to be a modern day Super Hero in this cosmic epic.

Toon’s Take: Gods? New Gods? Demi Gods? Ultra Gods? Lex Luthor? Multiverse? Universe on top of the multiverse? Internet virus? “Uthernet”? Mathmetical formula of death? Cure of which is an electrical circuit representing life? What the f***?
