This site has been made to examine the influence that alternative comic book stories have had on the industry over the past 30 years. If you ever thought to yourself, “Superheroes just aren’t for me,” then this is the place to be. Image, Vertigo, Abstract and multiple other publishers, series and creators have influenced my reading habits over the years. I’m just hoping to educate others and show that comic books aren’t just limited to “men in tights and capes.” No offence meant to those guys but it’s been a while since a truly great superhero story had a significant impact on the industry (and no, rebooting continuity doesn’t count!!).

Thanks everyone and hope you enjoy the site!!
