the great 999 challenge thread had me thinking about themes in comics and looking for suggestions regarding the challenge, but also in general.
I'm the type of person who often consumes entertainment in loosely-labeled themes, so I thought I'd create this thread for myself, but it can be an ongoing "suggestions" thread for people also looking for similar things (westerns, space operas, anthropomorphic, etc)
a couple categories I'm looking for right now:
I have a couple "rock n roll" anthology books, some of P. Craig Russell's opera adaptations, etc - but I'm wondering I'm looking for illustrated biographies (I hear that Johnny Cash one is good), or fictitious books that have music as a central theme (Phonogram, etc)...anything really
Been traveling to Mexico lately and been immersed in Latin-American music and movies, and I know there is a history of comics series throughout the 20th century in lots of Latin-American countries and all sorts of genres. I'm looking for books that delve into different latin american culture (specifically Mexican but all included), people, events, etc. But also if there is any really great collections you know of by creators from Latin America (preferably not just all the Brazilians working at DC & Marvel).
All that talk about that Roberto Clemente book last year got me thinking about other sports books. I think that someone asked that question on a semi-recent iFanboy podcast but they didn't get that many straight answers. Biographies, themes, whatever. Doesn't have to be a team sport - can be wrestling or boxing or whatever.
since I'm not a big collector as far as bin-diving, finding things that have been collected into bound volumes is easier than single issues, though if you know of something that is a mini-series or soemthing, that could work obviously.
Other people can ask for category (company, hero-type, etc) suggestions in replies
