10 Suggested Alt-Comics for YOUon December 9, 2014 at 1:42 pm
Pizza is tasty. But you can't eat it every day.
I thought I'd try to come up with 10 comics recommendations that show greater social awareness and (genuine) cultural diversity than the 'X-Men'.
I am particularly interested in comics that are accessible to new readers of the form, and can be purchased without too much complication. i.e.
1. Rep. John Lewis' 'March'.
3. Happy that there is a USA edition of Lat's Kampung Boy.
4. From New Zealand
Maui: Legends of the Outcast
5. American Born Chinese
6. Anything by 'Los Bros Hernandez'
8. Perseopolis, Marjane Satrapi
9. Wake / Sillage:
A comic about colonialism, set in space: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wake_%28comics%29
10. Keith Knight:
Chivalry Ain't Dead https://medium.com/the-nib/the-outcome-of-income-inequality-c813a52f00fc
.. this hasn't won any awards but it's cool fast pop. And totally free to download.
