Detox Graphic Novels

Green Lantern Agent Orange

Okay, I’m back from my meeting with the CEO of and lunch with a friend. On the way back home I picked up Majestic: The Final Cut (50 percent off!) and Green Lantern: Agent Orange. I’ve decided that I’ve been playing too much Dragon Age: Origins and need to diversify my geekdom.

  1. @Smartguy Nah, I was interviewing him for an article for someone else and possibly here. Thanks though!

    @Iceman I actually received both, but have only played on Xbox. I finally beat the game last night (this morning, really) and will play through at least another time.

  2. @ Smartguy;

    Graphic novels are awesome! They are like novels, only with pictures! Personally, I'm biased towards Marvel, since I was practically rasied on X-men and Spiderman. I would recommend anyting written by J. Michael Straczynski (can't go wrong with him). I also liked the Ultimates (kind of like a new age Avengers).

    Outside of Marvel, I don't think I've read anything better than "The Killing Joke." Pick that one up if you like Batman. In fact, pick it up even if you don't like Batman.


  3. @Iceman

    You reminded me that I read Secret Wars when I was young. Is that a Marvel graphic novel?

  4. @ Smartguy;

    I don't know. I've never read Secret Wars. But here's the rule of thumb; if it's on trade paper back or hardback cover and it reads like a novel, it's a graphic novel. Come to think of it, I'm really not sure the distinction between "graphic novel" and "comic books" aside from a more politically correct term or social stigma.


  5. Was that an interview Ray? If so, goodluck.

    I’ve never actually read a graphic novel…unless Johnny the Homicidal Maniac is one.

  6. I think you’re right, Mr. Padilla. I’ll be glad to take that pesky Dragon Age: Origins off your hands for you in exchange for this nice, shiny Rubik’s Cube… you know, to help you diversify your geekdom.

    I’ll throw in a leopard-print Snuggie just to sweeten the deal. After all, nothing screams “geek” than reading a graphic novel or gaming in a Snuggie.


    P.S.- Is that copy of Dragon Age for the PC or Xbox 360. I’m just asking since Xbox #5 just RROdied on me a few days ago. The coffin should be getting here soon.
