    Thanks Boingboing. Thanks to this post, I discovered dinosaur comics. And thanks to dinosaur comics, I learned all about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.

    These are some fantastic choices. The R. Crumb ‘Sex Obsessions’ is one of the best collector books to come along in ages. It’s pricey, but really beautifully done. It’s something you need to see in person and hold to really understand how great it is.

    I also love ‘Get Your War On’. Looking at those comics a few years on shows us how insane the world has gone in the last 10 years. They’re scary, but still entertaining and keep you thinking.

    Crumb’s Genesis is my most astounding reading experience this year. The drawings add life, realism and, the good and (predominantly) the petty, bad and outright malicious. I hope he goes on and does the rest. I want to know how this story ends and I won’t settle for any substandard, non-Crumb versions of that book.

    XKCD has a book out, too. =P

    Also, if you haven’t heard of Gareth Hinds, you ought to look him up. To date, he has done graphic novel renditions of Beowulf, Merchant of Venice, King Lear, and the Odyssey, among other classics. Really a fascinating guy.
