"Comic Book of the Month" Selection Thread: September 2013
Time to select the "Comic Book of the Month" for September! We didn't have many nominations this last time around (what, was everyone too busy heading back to school?) but there were a few TPB's tossed out for discussion. I'll also toss in one previous nomination from last month (to give us a DC choice).
Thus, up for nomination this month, we have the following:
1. The Crow by James O'Barr.
Originally Published 1988-1989
Paperback, 244 pages
2. "The Activity" Vol. 1 by Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads.
A tale about the nature of evil and the power of love. It centers on a dark angel
who literally rises from the dead to avenge a gang of thugs who brutally killed him and his fiancee on the eve of their wedding. This is the graphic novel
that inspired the hit movie "The Crow".

The deaths that still shape the Spider-verse! During the early 1970s, a pair of plotlines changed comic-book mortality forever. Shock followed shock when Spider-Man lost a friend, a lover and an enemy in a dynamic drama that stunned readers as no comic deaths had before and few have since!

It's an American nightmare! What if baby Superman

And what if insane genius Lex Luthor was employed by the US government to develop their own countermeasure against the Man of Steel, turning the Cold War hot?! Alive with historical figures and starring a host of familiar superheroes, including Batman
and Wonder Woman as you've never seen them before, this superb graphic novel takes the arms race and infuses it with the thrilling powers of Kryptonite!
