Dudetube Gift Guide: Comics

This week I've been bring you suggestions for great gifts for yourself and your loved ones. You can check out my previous choices of Books, DVDs and Music.


I have to admit that I wasn't a huge fan of the DC weekly series 52 while it was being released. I picked up an issue here and there but only enjoyed some of what I read. While I was on vacation I sat down and read the whole series, which is now collected in 4 volumes. It really was as good as I hoped it would be. It has 4 of the best writers in comics today (Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka, Geoff Johns & Mark Waid) telling the stories of a great cast of characters. There's amazing character development in 52 in a way it could never be done in a monthy.


If you're looking for a fun gorgeous book Casanova is the title for you. Writer Matt Fraction (Iron Fist) along with artist Gabriel Ba (Umbrella Academy) tell the story of fuck up Casanova Quinn. Casanova gets dragged into a world of espionage, sex and parallel dimensions. He's one of the best anti-heroes I've read in years. The first seven issues of the series are collected in Casanova Volume 1: Luxuria.


I always get lots of readers asking for suggestions for non-comic readers. Ex Machina tells the story of a former superhero as the mayor of NYC in a post 9-11 world. Y: The Last Man is about the last man on earth (and his monkey) after a plague kills off every mammal with a Y chromosome. Fables is a brilliant epic about all the fairy tale characters driven out of their homelands and forced to live in New York. All three of these series are great for almost any reader and I suggest picking up the first couple collections to get a sense of where the stories are going.


One of the most enjoyable titles of the last two years was Alex Ross' Justice series. This is a great title for all old school comic fans and it features all the big DC characters. The series is available in 3 hardcover collections.
