So, spinning off from the female thor thread and the continuing shenanigans that Mavel and DC come up with to breathe "new life" into their universes...
I guess lots of people on here read a lot of comics, so what can you recommend that ISN"T published by either of the big 2.
Here's a few of my faves:
Persepolis by Marjam Satrapi. Growing up in, leaving and returning to Iran
Grandville. Victorian steampunk detective story with badger hero (??)
Stumptown, Portland based female detective by Greg Rucka and Matt Southworth
John Laymans Chew. Just odd.
