Storytelling Is Not Dead: 500 Comics of Summer – Post 2

If you are looking for cool graphic novels or comics to teach, check out my 365 Reviews here.

And you can follow my day by day of my 500 Comics of Summer by clicking here.

That’s right, by the end of September, I will have read over 500 single issues and be sort of caught up on my comics reading!

Yesterday I finished the fantastic Image Comics title Shutter.  30 issues of goodness, an amazing was to kick off the 500.

An interesting tale of self-growth and family drama coated in strange creatures, end of the world craziness, and a sentient cat alarm clock.  Lots of F-Bombs and a few panels of nudity will keep this one out of the hands of kids, but for adults it’s complex story-telling off the pages of an HBO script, but I’m not sure an HBO budget could cover the special-effects.

I am going to be selling my run of this series.  I will post the issues on FB and Twitter.  If you are interested, I’m parting with all issues (including variant covers) for $50.00, including shipping.  First come, first served.  I’ll let you know when they are sold.

Keep checking back for 500 Comics of Summer updates!  I can’t wait to dive into the next series…Sex Criminals maybe…or finish my run of Manifest Destiny??


Happy reading!
