What trade should we read together for our May Comic Book of the Month? Nominate your pick here!

This month's theme is "non-English language (translated)."

Titles nominated this month must have been translated into English from some other language. If you have any questions or concerns, please send a message to mod Kait, who is happy to help. You can find the complete 2019 theme calendar here.

- Nominated titles must be TPB comics or original graphic novels.
- Only the first volume of a series may be nominated, unless the group has already read the previous volume(s) as a book of the month. To see what we've read, check out our group's bookshelf.
- Nominated titles cannot have the same writer as the previous month's BotM winner. This month, that's Grant Morrison.
- Nominated titles must fit the month's theme. To see past and upcoming themes, check out the 2018 theme calendar and the 2019 theme calendar.
- Only one nomination per person.
- You can "second" a nomination in place of nominating a different book, but this will count as your nomination for the month. Seconded books will receive an additional chance of being selected in the randomization process.
- If a title you nominate wins BotM, please refrain from nominating another title for one month to give others a chance.

Nomination & Voting Schedule:
To better accommodate our increasing number of members, the nomination and voting schedule is as follows every month:

16th: Nomination forum opens
23rd: Nomination forum closes; 5 nominations are selected at random; Voting opens
30th: Voting closes

More details on our updated nomination and voting procedures can be found here.

I would recommend Blake & Mortimer, Asterix, Lucky Luke & Tintin but the first tomes are not that good. Especially in Blake & Mortimer and Tintin are close to unreadable due to their oldness. :(

I second this nomination, never read it but the first time I saw the movie I was blown away.
