Adventuretime Comics!

(This is not actually a post about Adventure Time.  Would that it were!  Alas, no ancient vampires are contained within today's missive from the :01 offices.)

I got an e-mail from a librarian at MUHS this past week asking about comics with adventures in them.  It is a good theme, thus: list!

The Quest for the Missing Girl

This book!  It is so good!  Also it is difficult to decide whether it's a pastoral meditation or a police drama, but that is easily resolved.  And the cover is just wonderful.

Conan 1

Anything Kurt Busiek writes is pretty much awesome by definition, and Dark Horse's Conan series is no exception.

Aaron Renier spiral-bound

The cutest book on this list!  We all heart Aaron Renier over here at First Second.

ST-Cover-300rgb

One of our books!  Guaranteed containing swordfights, evil plans, and history!

North World

This book is super-fun: it's got a clever premise, accountants, and talking bears!  What more do you need?

Crogan 1

Chris' Crogan series has all of the elements that good adventures need.  And he keeps writing more!  Soon there will be nothing but adventure!

Lone Wolf and Cub 1

This is the classic Japanese samurai adventure series.  Read it.  Love it. 

Bone-One-Volume-Edition

If you haven't heard about this comics adventure series, I don't think you have been paying attention very well.  The one-volume edition is the best, and I hear there is a color version coming soon!

Northwest Passage

North America at its most historical adventuresque!  All contained within the pages of this book
