Follow the Leader Episode 151: Recommended Reading...
Redartz: Well, it's Thanksgiving week here in the USofA. So many of us will be busy preparing, travelling, cooking, or just building an appetite. And for all our friends 'cross the waves', hopefully a good week is underway as the holiday season approaches. At any rate, here at BitBA we like to keep up the conversation, so: I'm thankful for each one of you that takes a few minutes from your busy days to visit . Also many thanks for all the great subjects you've submitted this year. Which reminds me, what do you have for a topic today?
As we await your answer to that question, here's another for you. This question is inspired by our fine friend Doug over at Black, White and Bronze (which you should definitely check out, if you haven't yet). Over the past months Doug has presented a very thoughtful analysis and review of the monumental graphic story "Maus", by Art Speigelman. While reading Doug's column, it struck me that if somebody asked me what one single comics story they really should read, just one single comic story among all, Maus would be the one. And so, my specific challenge for you: if you could recommend to someone a single comic story (may be a single issue, may be a single story), one which impacted you like no other, one you would say EVERYONE needs to read, what would it be?
Best wishes to all, and thanks in advance for your participation!
