This is completely true. The day I finished Watchmen I read it for about 6 hours, which is probably the longest I can read per day without going insane. My norm is 2-3 hours a day.

Great thread this is. I'm thinking about going out today and picking some more graphic novels up.

It's basically like high school meets a Cronenberg movie. It seems like it's gonna be so darkly funny or something but it's actually pretty tender.

Alan Moore's greatest work, imo, is From Hell. Great stuff all around.

i didnt like watchmen much. i read it, it was alright, but i wasn't as entertained by it as people seem to be here. i don't get its cult status. the written pages were actually the most annoying-- those fictional references a la borges, but in bad prose-- meh. the story was alright, the characters annoying, the art ok though traditional.

mr. toilet pointed out love and rockets as his favorite, and while i haven't read the whole of this series i've enjoyed it lots more than watchmen-- the illustration is way cooler, the characters are awesome, there's good use of humor, and there's no grandiose plot to save the world brought to us by superhumans.
