The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

1. Footnotes in Gaza



Footnotes in Gaza written by Joe Sacco is an accumulation of first hand accounts of the massacre in Khan Younis and Rafah by the Israeli Army. Overall it paints an interesting picture of Middle East. Also a good look back at the start of the Iraq War.

The art is realistic and engaging as you see the fear on the faces of the citizens and how much they have since the original massacre 56 years ago. A great read.

2. Maus



Maus the heart breaking story of Art Spiegelman's parents struggle during the Holocaust. And later their struggle to adjust after the war ended. The strange idea of making the characters animals creates a weird illusion as the typical loony toons cartoon of Dog chasing Cat chasing Mice takes a very dark turn.

3. Persepolis



Persepolis is a coming of age story set in Tehran, Iran during, after, and way after the Islamist Revolution of 1979. Marjane's story of exile and return coupled with intriguing black and white characters creates memories within the reader.

Also a really cool film was made.



4.My Friend Dahmer



An intriguing portrait of Jeremy Dahmer, serial killer, as he heads down a road of no redemption. It also makes you wonder about that kid in high school who always sat in the back. Disturbing, engaging, and all around fun. Do not read at night.

5. Zot!



Zot! by Scott McCloud was not originally a graphic novel but it's black and white run was re-edited and collected in an amazing trade paper back edition. McCloud's creative look at problems and his writings on how the world has changed since Zot!'s original run. The wide arrary of "loud" and "quite" villains are both memorable and fun. An amazing read for anyone.

TL;DR Just post your favorite graphic novels.

6. Soddesy

Soddessy is a graphic novel collection of strips from the web comic Supernatural Law. It's ridiculous funny with lovable characters and word play that makes you read each page twice. Each case is dramatic and exciting with an intriguing look at law and how it could be applied to a variety of situations including artificial insemination by satan, dracula's house ownership, and whether Sod, the Supernatural Law version of Giant Sized Man Thing, can take a paternity test.

The first time I read the comic it was all black and white which looked kind of cool with the cartoon style. The color isn't so bad, just interesting, though it does seem like it is trying to both be toned down and filled in. Still a great comic though.
