    "There are some movie streaming sites that have tons of ads and annoying popups, plus, I'm afraid that sites track what i do, so I use Brave to block everything and it works just like chrome, except it doesn't track you or send your info to anyone or what you do online "

      "Batman The Killing Joke represents one of the magnum opi of the graphic novel genre. At the time of it's release and to this day, it stands as a hallmark of how fascinating a psychological thriller can be. The Joker's origin is sifted through but by the end you will not be sure of any truths as they stand in the DC Comics universe. "

      "Before Garth Ennis wreaked havoc with his classic critically acclaimed Preacher series, he made a name for himself when he took over Hellblazer. John Constantine, the hard drinking, hard smoking manipulator of magic, meets his toughest opponent yet: his mortality. Constantine is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, and he doesn't have long to live. While Dangerous Habits (or most of Ennis' Hellblazer work) doesn't have the over the top vulgarity and brilliant insanity of his later work on Preacher, Ennis still weaves a powerful and surprisingly effective tale that finds Constantine at his weakest (and in following volumes we witness his deconstruction of the character) as he struggles to not only save his life, but his soul as well. Some of the art can be an acquired taste, but it suits the book, and Dangerous Habits is the beginning of the definitive Hellblazer stories."

      "I've always been a huge fan of comics and I've been looking for something different than what I normally read. I decided to check Amazon and came across Watchmen. It had great reviews and was reasonable priced, so I went ahead and ordered it. I'm so happy I did! This comic was so compelling, different, and engaging. I didn't want to put it down my first time reading it! This is a must-read for hardcore comic book lovers."

Beautiful art and beautiful story! I've been wanting this book for so long and I'm so happy to have the full series plus a inside look at the process of making the story and art. "
