You've mentioned Alan Moore & Dave Gibbons WATCHMEN, which was
groundbreaking in its formating of the panel layout structure of whole
issues.  Have you read Howard Chaykin's AMERICAN FLAGG?

What comics have you found inspiring?  What current and classics do you

Yeah, it was a great book, and the art and the story were engaging and weird
and funny and innovative.

I like weird stuff...I get any of Frank Miller's stuff, the Alan Moore stuff
from Awesome, I always get Usagi and the Tick...just a wide variety of stuff.
