Comics Arnt for Kids!!!

This is going to be a list of diffrent comics that (as the title suggests) arnt for kid. This is the main thing said about comics, people think that just because a medium has stuff aimed at children doesnt make the whole medium for children. These comics I think are the best for showing this some are super hero comics, some arnt, some are offencive and some actualy have an important message to get across. So I'll begin with....

5. The Invisibles
This far out, paranoid and just plain trippy comic is the work of (Yet again) Grant Morrison. Its one of his biggest series and this weird comic is one of the first things that spring to mind. This anti-establishment comic is the kind of thing that couldnt have been made if it came out now, it revolves around a band of terrosists fighting everything that is nornal, bad and just plain restricting. However this isnt against any real goverment but parasetic demons from another dimension.Theres plently here for everyone so long as your open minded and dont mind some crazy psychedelic stories.


4. Transmetropolitan

This comic is also an obvious choice for this list, full of profanity, drug use and all sort of other shit thats all wrapped up in an important political message. Its about freedom and the importance of a free media. This comic is diffrent from most you will ever read as you are dragged around the sc-fi world by the Hunter. S. Tompson charicter as he explains what is wrong with everyone and everything in the form of home truths.

3. Preacher
 This is a comic thats hard to sum up in a paragraph, a preast whos depressed and lost faith in god gets possessed by and half angel/half demon which gives him the word of god and the powetr to make anyone do anything he can says. Rather than being corrupted by such power he puts it to a much more important use, to find god and get him to anwser for everything. This comic is like my favrite comic of all  time thanks to the brilliant writing of Garth Ennis this story goes from black comedy to an even darker drama in a heartbeat.

2. The Filth
 Thiis brilliant comic is like the Invisibles but x 1,000, more sex drugs and just plain weirdness from a talking Russian Chimpanzee to a giant flying killer super sperm. Its again written by Gran Morrison and is about one man trying to find out who he is, is he the super spy everyone tells him he is or is there something else? Should he follow what he's told or go with what he thinks.

1. The Boys
When the saviours are worse than the villans they protect us from, whos going to stop them? Thats what the boys are for. This anti-superhero comic raises from the humour of everything people dislike about superheroes, and puts them in a very real context but thats not all, this comic is also writtten by Garth Ennis and follows the black humour of preacher but alot more darker. This is is not for the faint of heart, well none on this list are but with this one is by far the furthest I've seen a comic go.

Thanks for reading, I've a couple more posts being written, I'll put a new post up tommorow as well. If theres any topic you want me to address just say and I'll consider it.

  15. I find that a lot of comic book stories have been adapted into movies.

    For example, V for Vendetta, Kick Ass, Walking Dead (TV show), also Batman and Spiderman and all those.
