What's your current favorite comic books Iwaku. What is underrated and everyone needs to know about. What is worth the hype it's recieving?
Oh yes. Saga is goddamn amazing.Saga: Goddamn, but I'm a sucker for all things Brian K Vaughan, and his newest series is no exception to the rule. Space opera isn't something I normally go in for, but this is definitely an exception to the rule.
Rat Queens: Probably the funniest comic book I've read in a while. Fantasy comedy starring the most badass (and banterous) party of lady heroes in comics.
I'M SURE I'LL THINK OF MORE LATER AND YELL ABOUT IT HERE.
Swampthing is also where Constantine first debuted. Alan Moores creation as well.1a) Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing. Do it, just do it. Morality, vengeance, trans-humanism, meta-physics... Just, woah. The Frankenstein parellel here destroys anything Banner/Hulk on their BEST days.
2a) Sandman by Neil Gaiman. I think you may have read this (and this might be Vertigo, fuckit, can't remember), but some of the most beautiful artwork and storytelling out there. You follow Dream during adventures, mis-adventures, and in meeting his siblings The Endless, representing things in life such as, Oh, I don't know, DEATH.
Oh yes. Saga is goddamn amazing.

Sandman being obscure? Man. I feel old. Everyone and their mother had read it back in the day. Its Vertigo. But DC Owns Vertigo
The NEW Marvel Star Wars comics are actually turning out to be really good. @_@ I need to get my hands on Kanan and Lando. Princess Leia should be out on TPB pretty soon!
Sandman back in the 2000's when it came out was like, the one comic critics and people in general picked out that weren't comic people. It was how you introduced people to comics. It was nowhere close to obscure 10 years ago. It basicly cemented gaiman and launched his writing career like a goddamn rocket. Everyone in my school pretty much read it. Every gothkid, emo, scene, alt kid in general had read it. Its what got most people I know today, into comics. Its pretty much one of the most famous and critically acclaimed comicbook series written...Niiicccee. Didn't know that about Constantine. (BTW, is it -teen or -tyne? I've heard both).
Also, yeah, Sandman is considered more obscure. Comics people know it, but everyone else? Well, to be fair, Sandman stuff is getting bigger and bigger. I mean, that new Lucifer show is based in/around the Sandman universe, soooo...
