Zot!: The Complete Black-and-White Collection: 1987-1991 - Scott McCloud While the first ten issues of Zot! were great with their innocence and sense of golden age superhero nostalgia, what got me interested in the first place were the b&w earth stories of the later issues. Zot gets trapped in Jenny's world and interacts with her collection of misfit friends and deals with real life issues. These issues of Zot helped pave the way for stuff like Strangers in Paradise and Ed Brubaker's Lowlife. Great stuff. Highest possible recommendation if you're into comic that aren't vanilla superhero fare.
