    It's been a LONG time since I bought a comic and even then, I was into GI Joe and Transformers. I recently jumped on the Scott Pilgrim bandwagon and have started reading those books.

    Does anyone else read graphic novels and if so, any recommendations? I'm probably going to get the Halo Graphic novels since I'm a big fan of Halo, but anything else?

    Persepolis is a good one. A really quick read too.

    Wanted is the other that I like..

    V for Vendetta is by far one of my favorite graphic novels ever. The artwork isn't that great though.

    After a few mentions now I must ask, is it worth buying the graphic novels of movies. Not because the movie is better (cos I know it never is) but more that I want to read new original stories and work rather than a different version of a story I already know.

    I hope you followed that......
