This week I met a guy at work who has a tattoo of Carnage on his leg, and a page from Sin City on his upper arm (complete with a frame of text around it, "Worth killing for. Worth dying for. Worth going to hell for. Amen.")

What are some of your favorite geek tattoos, whether your own or another's? 

Below the cut is a tattoo I saw on tumblr recently. Daleks are the shit.

Lately I've taken more of an interest in American comics. To be more specific WitchBlade and ElfQuest. I've read most of the graphic novels they had on WitchBlade and ElfQuest in the library. I was even able to find an old copy of ElfQuest in an cool antique shop I found once that has a lot comics for sell. They're not very new(my copy of ElfQuest is almost as old as me) but  they're still interesting. So out of curiosity which comics do you read?

Welcome to the Jungle is a four-part comic (also available compiled in graphic novel form) set in the world of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files. (Interesting tidbit: Butcher originally envisioned The Dresden Files in comic form.)

Illustrated by Ardian Syaf and published by the Dabel Brothers. It was nominated for a Best Graphic Story Hugo. Welcome to the Jungle is extremely well written, as Jim Butcher is a god (at the very, very least a demi-god). It also contains amazing art. Examples: 1, 2, 3, 4.

Unfamiliar with Harry Dresden? Shame on you. No worries. It is set as a prequel to the series. No previous knowledge of the plot is needed.

Summary of Welcome to the Jungle: "Harry Dresden is on the case again, this time investigating a brutal mauling at the Lincoln Park Zoo that has left a security guard dead… and many questions unanswered. But Dresden isn't a private detective, looking for a murderer – he's a wizard, with the ability to interact with the magical world around our own, and to see that there's much more to this case than a simple animal attack. As Dresden begins to hunt for clues to figure out who is really behind this crime, he finds himself next on the victims list…"

I absolutely loved the story, the art, and the writing. As a fervent fan of the Dresden Files I was an easy sell on this. It is an excellent read. Has anyone else read it?
