The updated top 10 list: the best comic books

Marvel Encyclopedia, New Edition

If you are a big fan of Marvel characters, then we think you must get this book. The encyclopedia shares secret histories with you, and you will discover vital information that you can’t find in the Marvel Comics themselves.

Crisis on Infinite Earths Companion Deluxe Edition Vol. 1

This deluxe edition includes ‘DC Comics Presents’, ‘All-Star Squadron’, ‘The Fury of the Firestorm’, and ‘The Green Lantern’.

Captain Absolutely: Defending Truth, Justice, and Lots More Truuuth! (Adventures in Odyssey Books)

Josiah King is transformed into a superhero after inhaling some kind of strange fume in a library. He is now: Captain Absolutely. He is fighting Dr. Relative, who loves to hide the truth and doesn’t care one bit about justice.

On the Planet Mongo (The Complete Flash Gordon Library)

We like this set, because they were a motivation for many people to develop their artistic skills. Even George Lucas admitted he created Star Wars after having read ‘On the Planet Mongo’. If he got inspiration from the strips, so can you. It least they are fun.

The Last Kids on Earth: The Monster Box (books 1-3)

Within the series of ‘The Last Kids on Earth’, this boxed set includes the titles: ‘The Last Kids on Earth’, ‘The Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade’, and ‘The Last Kids on Earth and the Nightmare King’.

B.P.R.D. Hell on Earth Volume 1 (Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense)

This volume is three paperbacks in one: ‘New World’, ‘Gods and Monsters’, and ‘Russia’. This hardcover edition is the perfect gift if you know someone who likes the BPRD.

Unicorn on a Roll (Phoebe and Her Unicorn Series Book 2): Another Phoebe and Her Unicorn Adventure (Volume 2)

Phoebe has a best friend: a unicorn. This unicorn is called Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, which we think is funny by itself, but then Phoebe takes you with her on the adventure that grade school is for her. Things aren’t always easy, but can she – with the help of Marigold – survive school?

Batman: Last Knight on Earth

When Bruce Wayne wakes up in the future, he discovers that he wasn’t Batman, nor had he been Batman before the moment he woke up. He needs to find out what happened, but the world he is now in is far from what he knew.

Attack on Titan: Colossal Edition 1

We picked this book for our top ten list, because this is a special version that is not even available in Japan. It comes with 15 color pages and in a much larger size than usual. Anyone who likes to read the ‘Attack on Titan’ series will love this version.

The Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade

Jack hears noises, and these noises are luring the zombies away from him. You would think he would like the zombies leaving, but he doesn’t really. He needs to find out what that noise is, and why the zombies are attracted to it. Together with his best friends and his pet monster they decide to go on a quest.
