3) CAMELOT 3000

A futuristic retelling of ‘Le Morte D’Arthur’, this 1982 DC limited series is both the precursor of Vertigo and an early example of the genre mashup, taking the medieval romantic imagery of the Round Table and merging it with something bordering on cyberpunk.  Featuring interesting takes on gender politics, technology and the role of humanity in a changing world, it’s also a kick-butt adventure tale with beautiful Brian Bolland visuals.  Seriously, go check it out, you guys, it’s that good…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    What, no “Sands of Blood”!? I have ruined many people’s weekends (as in, they couldn’t put the book down and got nothing accomplished) by giving them a copy of “The Cowboy Wally Show.”
