I think you'd be all about Sandman. It's trippy, gothy, and while it's in the DC universe and is a reinvention of a superhero it's not a superhero comic if that matters to you. If you've ever seen American Gods or Coraline they're adaptations of the same writer's stuff. And it ****ing looks like this.

Saga is brilliant. You should also check anything by Alan Moore. He's heavily GOAT. Watchmen is obvious but Swamp Thing and Marvelman/Miracle Man are also god tier.

I'm still recovering from the X-men comics I read but maybe

Well I was talking to Lucem but how much of those X-Men comics did you actually read? I know you read "some amount" of the Joss Whedon stuff but I don't remember what else.

I know Sandman. I'll add that.

Watchmen is what I was thinking of. I'll add that. And Saga too.

I don't know if I'll ever return to Spawn. Todd might be great at character design but he's such a **** writer.

I read that entire Whedon series and a whole bunch of the famous Morrisson one, not the entire thing but I may finish it. While I'm reading them I have the usual 'oh god this is silly' feeling but those X-men comics stick with me. It's the outcast/found family trope I think.

Yeah Spawn sucks. It has its redeeming values but it's pure 90s trash. Sandman is vaguely like Spawn but a million times better. If you want the best version of Spawn then ditch the comic and watch the cartoon. It's objectively better.

Yeah that's what X-Men is. Superhero team comic books generally have worse interpersonal drama but are wilder and crazier than solo books because all the characters are in their own solo books so the drama of the team book is limited but X-Men solves this by having its character's primary stories in the team book. It's so simple but legitimately why X-Men are on the same level as Spider-Man, Batman, and Superman.

Black Science was cool. The drawing ranged from fantastical worlds to indistinguishable messes. The storyline was trippy and an interesting take on the multiverse theory. Without spoiling much, the idea is that there are multiple universes that exist as part of an "everyverse", which can navigated layer by layer like an onion. The characters range from teenagery anarchists to conniving neoliberal fascists to egotistical brats and more in an everyverse of unsympathetic character arcs, which presents the story in a sort of removed way that allows the reader to walk away with their own interpretation.

Spoiler for .:
I prefer the eucalyptus analogy that the series closes with, that each reality branches out of a similar structure.


I guess it's Alan Moore next then.
