Did Moonshine War do anything for you?
I bought a 2H copy of Moonshine War a couple of years back when you recommended it. Then it sat on the shelf until this summer. So thanks for pointing me at it.

I noticed I was being disingenuous about my favourite books. I only included new books not re-reads. The only graphic novel on that list is the book I rate most highly. Elektra Assassin's my favourite comic story. Better than Watchmen or The Dark Knight. That good.
I used to encourage everyone I knew to make art; I don't do that so much anymore. - Banksy

Surprised you hadn't read THE LONG HALLOWEEN before. It's one of those essential Batman books. I think I like DARK VICTORY a bit more. This reminds me I have like 10 Batman books I should read.
