Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose
Rate this book

Elegant, stirring writing, with beautifully fine-tuned voices. A play that is strangely timeless, considering its plethora of contemporary references. It also features, without overly stressing the point, the potential that the hero, having won, may ...more

Batman by Doug Moench and Kelley Jones Vol. 1 by Doug Moench
Rate this book
Clear rating
Kelley Jones' art has always fascinated me. It's a heady mixture of gothic dread, surreal, panel-busting ingenuity and horror-comics cartoony. His 90's run on Batman is an achievement for the artist, and this giant volume collects it beautifully. Unf ...more

Wall and Piece by Banksy
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is an exceptional summary of the elusive artist's work from his peak period. Banksy's graffiti art transcends mere stencils and spray paint cans. His deep, rigorous and often darkly whimsical visual satire is beautifully depicted in this collect ...more

Superman: Red Son
by Mark Millar (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a pretty ingenious comic: retell and analyze the history and philosophy of the USSR through a re-interpretation of Superman. Millar retells the origin of Superman, but as though he landed in the wheatfields of Ukraine in the 1950s, not Kansas ...more
