Early Christmas Ideas

My friend's girlfriend called me earlier asking for tips on what graphic novel to give for Christmas.

I thought that for the ladies who want to give their fanboy better halves a Christmas gift, here are my graphic novel suggestions.

I'm just gonna throw in the non-mainstream ones ok?

1. Invincible by Robert Kirkman (Image) - Spider-Man meets Superman.
2. The Sword by The Luna Brothers (Image) - just buy this, it rocks!
3. The Escapists by Brian K. Vaughan (Dark Horse) - Geek love!!!
4. Criminal by Ed Brubaker (Icon) - heavy reading but it's worth every page!
5. The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman (Image) - Not horror at all, it's character development at its finest!

Local ones rock too!

1. Elmer by Gerry Alanguilan
2. TRESE books 1, 2, and 3 by Budjette Tan
3. Martial Law Babies by Arnold Arre
4. 12 by Manix Abrera (ONE OF THE BEST I'VE READ... OF ALL TIME!)

You can get these books in the ff: if you're living in the Metro Manila Area

1. Druid's Keep - Gateway Center in Magallanes
2. Comic Odyssey - Robinsons Galleria, Ermita, Eastwood Cybermall
3. Fully Booked stores
4. Sputnik - Cubao Expo

Hey, the local ones you listed are also my faves! Here are some of my other faves that weren't included in that list:

1. Andong Agimat by Arnold Arre - action/fantasy
2. Mythology Class by Arnold Arre - fantasy/adventure
3. After Eden by Arnold Arre - love story
4. Lastikman by Gerry Alanguilan and Arnold Arre - sci-fi

Arnold is one prolific graphic novelist! Now I'm waiting for Gerry's Humanis Rex! and Timawa. Hopefully soon!
