They'll all pretty much amazing. Each one is one of those books where I say to myself, damn, I'm gonna have to go back and read that again someday.

Good shit.

There is NO WAY to choose. Seriously. I might favor one a bit more, like say 3 or possibly 7, but each contains an element, be it an idea or characterization or art which is incredibly compelling.

I refuse to choose Mr. Mack. Love them all.

i like 3, 5, and 7...it's so hard to choose. maybe i'll read them all again tomorrow and try and narrow it down some.

I don't like choosing between chapters of a larger novel.

Issue 4 has stuck with me since I first read it. I think it was the autobigraphical stuff that really made it click for me. That issue is the one that made the first three and all of the ones that followed feel like parts of a larger whole even though they each stand on thier own. I've reread it a few times since and it still feels like the first time every time.

I've loved all of them so far, but there's something about #4... it's haunting.
