Comics Recommendations from Mister V

ONWARD TO OUR NOBLE DEATHS by Shigeru Mizuki

Photobucket

A fictionalized memoir of time spent in the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II, featuring what has to be some of the most fucked up deaths from misfortune ever. Death by animal, death by disease, death by pride. A haunting masterpiece.

THE NEXT DAY by Paul Peterson, Jason Gilmore, and John Porcellino

Photobucket

Collecting the tales of four individuals and their brushes with self-inflicted near-death, this is a humble tale of human tragedy and perseverance, simply stated, minimally rendered, and poignantly touching.

WILSON by Daniel Clowes

Photobucket

I read GHOSTWORLD when I was a teenager, and was like, "What the fuck am I reading? Christ does Dan Clowes suck." I read WILSON some 15 years later, and was like "This is so depressing it's hilarious. Jesus I was a dumb teenager." Good stuff. Expensive, but worth it.
