03 May 2013 - 06:02 PMThe French seem to have a talent for comics. Goscinny, Girard, Bilal, Martin, Uderzo etc.
Lots of good comics mentioned here, Watchmen comic was breathtaking. I'm a bit surprised Miller's Sin City isn't mentioned, though. Gaiman and Larson are among geniuses from the new continent. 99 cents for Sandman? Steal.
For the cat lovers I'd recommend kinda-film-noir Blacksad. Sokal's earlier Canardo albums are good read.
Hugo Pratt was a comic artist who deserves a mention. His main character, a countryless sea captain Corto Maltese, a man who cut his own fate line finds himself in all kinds of places in all kinds of trouble with all kinds of people stuck in their place in history. While Pratt's simplistic drawing style might elude a lot of people, the story keeps reader in it's iron grip. Dubbed as master of atmosphere (mood), the comic Indian Summer he wrote and Manara drew is as ugly as only life can be.
01 May 2013 - 05:44 PMThere are people who agree and disagree with something someone said. Of those who agree, there are those, who agreed because they thought the same way and those, who just agreed because they didn't have thoughts or courage of their own. Of those who disagree, there are those who disagree because they don't think the same way and those, who disagree because of necessity to disagree.
Now, there are two kinds of people: those, who can change the way they think, and those, who will.
