If you think that Alan Moore is a genius that can do no wrongIf you think the Comics Journal is the ultimate reading guide to comicsIf you only love indyundergroundforeign comicsIf you re too cool for the mainstreamThen this is the comics guide for you I m not saying there s anything bad here just that something that purports to be the ultimate guide should do a better job of representing the DCMarvel mainstream and larger popular independents Some concessions are made to titles and characters with too obvious to be denied pop culture impactBut the major omissions and comics as literature snob bias are evident and in play hereThis is a useful guide to the interesting works to be found outside the mainstream andor that may appeal to readers who wouldn t usually pick up a gasp comic book It also makes the debatable decision to include again selected comic strips along with comic books graphic novels a
