YAFQ: What Comic Haven't You Read (Yet)

What comic have you always intended to read, but haven't yet gotten around to reading yet?

For me it would be Love & Rockets. I have both Palomar and Locas on my bookshelf, but they're both such massive tomes that I haven't gotten around to digging into them yet. I think they intimidate me a little...

What about you? Which comic have you always heard good things about, but haven't yet read?

I haven't read Locas, but Palomar was amazing. I got it from my local library, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

As to something well-praised that I haven't read. Hmmm... well, I haven't read the Dark Phoenix Saga or Days of Future Past, do they count?

Too many to list. I have a rather tall stack of mini and maxi-series waiting for me. That's what happens when I wait til I have the full story before reading.

I've got to get around to reading some of Joe Sacco's books soon.

Cerebus.

I'm interested to see what it's like, but I'm the kind of person who has to finish any storyline I start (assuming I like it). I did that with Sandman and Akira, so I know that if I buy Cerebus book 1, I've pretty much committed myself to eventually buying books 2-16.

I have had the collected edition of Dave McKean's Cages for years, but I still haven't read it.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - I've checked vols 1 & 2 out from the library at least 3 or 4 different times, and have never been able to sit down and read it. The weird thing is I love work by Alan Moore... I don't know why this is. I think I need help :)

Bone for me.

Like many comics, I started it and lost my way with the individual issues. Got the big Tome last year but have yet to dive back in. I liked it when I read it.

I wrote a post about the phenomenaon of falling behind on comics on my blog just yesterday, appropriately enough.

Oh, and *do* read your Love and Rockets. They're great. Those are among my favorite comics.

Concrete. The entire Strangers in Paradise series (read vol 1). Crisis on Infinite Earths. Bone. American Elf.
I think I've read too many zombie/horror comics recently; I've been dreaming of zombies!
