I would love to read more books by IMAGE or DARK HORSE comics, but unsure what to read next.

Suggestions?


from Dark Horse, the first Ghost series is quite good. also, the current Captain Midnight comics have been great.

from Image, Invincible. from the creator of The Walking Dead. i'd describe it as a mix between Superman/Spider-Man and some soap opera elements thrown in.

Hello, CR freaks!

I am currently attending school for business and I have never been so excited about it. I was in school for Network Administrator, but it was not as exciting as I believed it would be. So I left that, paid the monster bill, and moved to my real desire; business!

I have always been interested in our markets and economy. I have experience and I believe I am a people person to make creative capitalism (Bill Gates) happen in some sort of way. That would actually be pretty awesome.

Anyways, too much details.
I was just wondering if anybody knows any good business, economy, or free market books. I would love to read a couple of them and just spoil my head with them.

Thanks in advance! I know it is not a super interesting subject, but it does not hurt to start a topic about it

I would recommend Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

It's a great sy-fi adventure book filled with a boat load of pop culture references

there is a comic called 'infinite vacation' you should look into. its where people pay to take a vacation in an alternate reality. since there are endless realities they can pick and choose what scenario their vacation will be... and they temporarily posses the version of themselves that lives there.

I seem to have missed your request. So, sorry for the delay, but have you tried "The World Is Flat" by Tomas Friedman?

If you want to try something different, I can recommend "Mouse Guard" by David Petersen. Great characters and art, plus an interesting story.

Request: Hi! I'm looking for a graphic novel/comic series with a female main protagonist, preferably set in the modern world and without any superhero plot (I need a change after I went on a Marvel reading spree). Generally I like the genres of fantasy, romance and drama but I'm open to suggestions of works in other ones as well.

Well, if you want to try something very different, I highly recommend Persepolis, written by Marjane Satrapi. It's autobiographical, about her youth in Iran after the revolution. There's even been an animated movie made out of it.

Solanin, by Inio Asano, is also a good read. This manga--you can get all of it in one large volume--is about college graduates trying to adapt to life after college. There's a little bit of everything in this one.
