The Marvel Universe In 1988 Marvel’s most popular mutant finally merited his own ongoing series, which began in November 1988 in the same month as Uncanny X-Men #237 was released, along with New Mutants #69, X-Factor #35, and Excalibur #2. The final story, �Good Samaritan�, has no artwork and it was my favorite. Mostly half Wolverine and half Ghost Rider stories: #54, 57-62, 64-71, 85-99 (have 1 extra #54, 86, 87, 90, 91, 92). Features an afterword by Ennis in which the real-life inspiration for the stories is revealed.

The artwork is a perfect match to Moore�s words, being at once both visceral and surreal. It’s a truth more monstrous than he could ever have imagined. He hit upon the term graphic novel because it combined two words with positive meanings. Into the Infinite chronicles the third year's worth of nerd-culture comic Massive Pwnage! Late in the story, there is a page in which Nausicaä is being rejuvenated in an herbal bath. The Fog had a lot of potential either as a prequel or a stand-alone story, but the finished story disappointed on both counts.

So this book gave me many insights and new attitudes about the field of comics creation. Back to the graphic novel, if you want to be introduced to a British comic book icon, I suggest you start with the beginning.
