Shameless Plug #5

Written in 1985 by the father of the modern comic book, Alan Moore, this graphic novel is undergoing filming for release in 2009. The story is about a group of retired superheroes from the 1950’s coming back onto the job to address a mysterious, new supervillain who is trying to push America and the Soviet Union into using their Cold War missles. Some of the foibles and interactions between the superheroes are more adult in nature, but this graphic novel was the only comic to make Time magazine’s 2005 “Best English language novels from 1923 to present” list. It’s The Great Gatsby of comics.
