Hi Octavius and All ~

Great question. I'll bite. I love going back to Too Much Coffee Man again and again. A satirical "superhero" comic! I'm a big fan of Shannon Wheeler (the now cartoonist for The New Yorker) strips but his TMCM is what always cheers me up. Speaking of,
Dark Horse Presents will feature Too Much Coffee Man once again. The serial is going to run from issue 32 to 35. That means it'll be 32 pages in total. Also, there is a new hardcover omnibus of Wheeler's work forthcoming (June 7). I'm debating on this
mammoth volume because it collects stuff from various individual projects in print or digital form (www.tmcm.com). Anyway, what other comic can say it inspired an opera production, a song by Bob Dorough (composer of the Schoolhouse Rock! soundtrack),
and a beer? Yeah, amazing. I found a wonderful interview with Shannon Wheeler on YouTube when he was on Mr. Media's video podcast in 2014. If you do watch the video, take a look in the background on his drawing table. You'll see the original art for page
1 of the latest Dark Horse Presents feature I just mentioned. Kinda cool. What about you? What is your ONE comic, graphic novel, or series?

Mine is not necessarily one comic but a series. I would say Preacher, it was my intro back into comics. It is a "nothing held back" style of comic. It reminds me of a Quentin Tarantino/Rodriguez film and to be honest if they
made a movie adaptation, I would want them to make it. The TV series (AMC), I don't think gives it justice based on content restrictions. The comics that make up the series, are beautifully illustrated based off the nitty
gritty content. If you pick this up, you will find that it is hard to put down. Luckily there are 9 trades to read through and has a satisfying end which I find most series have a hard time doing.
Great Scott!

Wow, Hard Question. I've Been Thinking About This For Weeks And I'm Still Struggling To Pick. Other Members Have Cheated By Picking Graphic Novels Or Whole Series, Much Harder When It Comes To A Single Issue. What About You Octavius?, Do You Have One?

Anyone else currently reading Old Man Logan too? I started with Lemire's run but wondering if I need to back track to either the Bendis run or the Secret Wars mini. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
