Title says it all I guess.

I know we probably donít have more than a couple dozen subforum regular readers, but if we picked a book and even a handful of us read it we might have fun with it.

I’d be open if it’s something that a lot of people own or is available on hoopla or ComiXology Unlimited. And yet isn’t too overexposed, like Watchmen.

Yeah, the problem would be picking something that's not discussed to death but that most of us have access to. I mean, I have a pretty extensive library but I haven't bought a "new" comic in a few years now.

I’m thinking a horror book would be appropriate, given it’ll be October and all.

Maybe we can narrow down to a service to help choose something we all have access to? Who here has Comixology Unlimited? And I imagine if you don’t have Hoopla already everyone should have access to it, right?

For a horror comic, I'd recommend David Quinn and Tim Vigil's Faust: Love of the Damned, but it doesn't seem to be in print or even on Comixology.

You'd think they would put an omnibus edition of it out through Image of something.

Batman: The Long Halloween? Harrow County? (It's spread out over several TPBs, though.) Charles Burns' Black Hole? The Crow?

We could do one TPB of Harrow County and see how it goes.

Locke and Key? Outcast? Swamp Thing?

I’d second Harrow County, heck, all of David’s suggestions.

Just bought Black Hole and would love that choice too. The original The Crow mini would be cool too, given it’s main fame being the film and this being a movie site.

I’ll also toss out Rachel Rising, all 42 issues of which are on CMX UL. I may have an ulterior motive because I haven’t read my omnibus yet.

I second (or third) the Crow. I don't know how many people have access to the original though since the current print is an extended version with additional pages. I would discuss that one too.
