I agree that Watchmen has had the widest audience and popularity. Persepolis is the one I forgot.

I guess when I am recommending one graphic novel I just do t want to stick at "the most influential one" although to be honest that's not a bad starting point. Watchmen encapsulates a lot.

Blankets and Stitches. Two different authors yet very similar feels. Very different from watchmen et al of course. Realistic, quasi autobiographical.

Right now I've been reading. swamp Thing. Amusing considering I am also reading Swamplandia!, I appear to be on a sort of kick.

I'm reading From Hell currently, and then I move on to Faust. Too many common lines along here.

Perhaps if the book club seems to be an inappropriate venue or it doesn't pan out for comics here, we should have a small comic club. I would love to have people to discuss with the lesser known works I'm reading, at least to the general public. I'd love to just talk about BKV for a couple of hours.

I'm down. It might be cool to organize reading around a particular writer or artist, for example, the work of Grant Morrison, or the work of Brandon Graham.

Alan Moore's Swamp Thing still sticks with me. The Monkey King is one of the most memorable "villains" in the history of comics.

And to loop it back - I can do Watchmen. V for Vendetta? i've read. Blankets? Do not want.
