I've got the first 4 volumes of the Judge Dredd Case Files to get through on my Christmas break....I read the first 4 collected volumes of Preacher, it was good but I could never be arsed to buy any more...always seemed to be something more important to buy.

mainstream sickness that started me on my path to great story telling & people with issues:









i also loved the HBO Spawn cartoon series from years back.  i have some more obscure stuff like grendel & other comics that were just kind of twisted, but the above are the ones that have stood the test of time for me.

bonus material



if i had a place to put them i would still buy comics >:(  & the character i love most is mr. natural
