So, we've got "hurrr hipsters", "lol comic books", and "whar superheroes" covered. With that out of the way, has anyone actually read anything on the list? Any thoughts?

Each book taken seperately serves its own purpose and story but piling all of them in such a list, that's just pretentious bollo**ery.

It's as if, for the past 20 years, everyone's been trying to write the next Maus and mistook crude, black and white drawing as the reason behind its success instead of a powerful story.
Teen angst seemingly illustrated by 12 year olds and written by depressed New Yorkers? Zarjaz!.
