    ...does anyone on here read them? I just finished Logicomix which was superb, if a little different from reading Incognito and the latest Walking Dead before that.

    Anyone have any recomendations for something next?

    Cheers

    Al,
    A great Graphic book to read is called "Art and Visual Perception" by Rudolph Arnheim.
    It has all the graphic stuff you need....

    Excellent, thanks for the recommendation. I draw as well as photograph and I love how the 2 mediums relate to each other.

    .18, the only graphic novels i've read are the ones by DC and Marvel, the single-book specials that they do :D not sure if those count. i particularly liked "Kingdom Come" by DC.

    The Red Star by Christian Gossett is very good. Also the Sin City graphic novels. I have lots of other choices depending on what you are into.

    Thanks, I like the look of Red Star. I've only recently started reading sci fi/fantasy themed novels having read factual based ones such as Laika, Jason Lutes Berlin Vol 1 & 2 and the travel novels Pyongyang, Burma Chronicles etc by Guy Delisle.

    I guess sci-fi wise I prefer the post-apocalyptic, or near-future style.
