On one of our many indoor streets in Lawrence.

I read comic books when I was a kid. Read some manga a few years back just to see what it was all about. I'm a big fan of Neil Gaiman and he likes to do the occasional graphic short story. He got into it by writing comics back in the '80's.

"graphic" means ...what?

they mean with illustrations? lolz! or do they mean with graphic violence?
graphic sex? graphic language?

me, I'd rather read a GUI novel, it's messier.

and labmonkey was first instead of kulaw, hurrah!

When I was a kid. Cave drawings. With charcoal.

If the LJW wanted to dig deeper, they could track down Jai Nitz...local boy done good in the comic book biz.

Watchmen was good. Won some major literary award (Hugo?) and they changed the rules afterwards to make sure no other comics (graphic novels!) could win again. Read some other comics as a kid, but they always cost too much to make a hobby out of it.

I, too, would guess Hastings.

I can't tell you where it is, but it rymes with Schmarget.

I'm with Pywacket. That is definately Hastings. I actually own a graphic novel of Pride and Prejudice. I also think the graphic novel has alot of potential. It's basically like reading the storyboard for a movie. It's a more sophisticated version of a comic but doesn't leave much to the readers imagination.
