Forbidden Planet - Best Comix of the Year

On a similar autobiographical note, The Alcoholic by Jonathan Ames and Dean Haspiel (Vertigo). Besides being a beautifully designed book (I am really thinking of chucking the dust cover), it’s also one of the best stories about alcoholism (or addiction in general), where it comes from and what it does to you. I’m too much of a scaredypants (or, rather, make that “responsible father”) to even come close to getting addicted to anything but sugar and caffeine (and comics! - Joe), and this book proved me right.
