So yeah, bought Watchmen, From Hell, and V for Vendetta and looking for similar/horror-oriented novels.

30 Days of Night any good?

And no Frank Miller comics, please.

Why no Frank Miller? Just curious since The Dark Knight Returns is among the greatest graphic novels of all time.

Maus, it's really good. I think (correct me f I'm wrong) it's the only comic to ever win a Pulitzer?

#4 Posted by Grimmrobe (219 posts) -

Just about everything the man touches nowadays is complete garbage and his past work is too overrated.

That, and he's a gigantic asshole.

@SoloReX: Oh god, that's a great book, I almost forgot about it.

Which reminds me, if Blacksad were an e-book, I would totally grab it, but I have to buy the cumbersome hardcover. >:/

@Grimmrobe: How have I not heard of this before? It's basically an homage to Maus, or? Definitely have to check this out, thank you.

Get some of the best stories written by H.P. Lovecraft. Mountains of Madness, The Dunwich Horror, The Call of Cthulhu, Shadow over Innsmouth, Colour out of Space, Dagon... I could go on and on... You should actually be able to find these free online, as they are old enough to be free now. Ah, yes. Here they are.

Damn, I so want a proper movie adaption of Mountains of Madness. So good.

@SoloReX: Actually the only thing they have in common are anthropomorphs. It's a film noir novel and the artwork is sublime. Must read.

@jaqen: Ooh Lovecraft, where to start though?

And just so I can feel like I've contributed something, I will also suggest another comic: David Boring

It's a pretty out-there noirish gaphic novel with excellent artwork. The author has apparently described it as: "It's like Fassbinder meets half-baked Nabokov on Gilligan's Island." So yeah...

30 days of night is , well , ok-ish , I have it and is a short comic and the artwork is not the greatest , I would actually recommend the sandman with yoshitaka amano´s illustrations (tho I dont know if its sold digitally , much less on kindles). I havent read much of Miller´s stuff outside SinCity ... Sincity is good. Oh yeah get Kabuki: Metamorphosis for a really unique comic book/ graphic novel. (again my knowledge of it bein digitally sold is null)

Funny thing, I just tried looking up some kindle manga, and all I got were yaoi books. :/

American Vampire by Scott Snyder is fantastic. Also recommending probably posting this question on Comic Vine's forums might get more responses then here.

#13 Posted by gaminghooligan (1672 posts) -

dunno if these are available: Maus, Killing Joke, Dark Knight Returns, Kill Shakspeare are some of the books I've been reading. Also Chew and American Vampire.

The Walking Dead...

Congrats on the purchase! I was an original Kindle Fire user and I actually got $130 for my Fire on eBay the week before the HD came out so I effectively got the 7" HD for just $69!

I like reading The Walking Dead on mine.

Ito Junji's Uzumaki and Gyo. Think Japanese weirdness filled Cronenberg body-horror. Mind-blowing!

Not a graphic novel perse, but Planetary was an amazing comic. Try Comixology for a comic reading app.

I dunno if Vertigo does digital, but if you can find any Hellblazer stories - "Dangerous Habits" specifically, if you've never read that series before.
