I also liked Blue Jasmine (review here), man! Um, I don’t know if I should really comment on whether or not you’re a bad person, but it seems like you’re exploring or investigating your feelings about this stuff, which is quite different from all the dweebs just being like, in denial about it as a possibility, even.
I assume you mean “graphic novels” here? It is maybe a safe or kinda obvious pick but Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics, which is a book about how to read comics but is also a poppy though heady semiotics book, really. I also feel like Seth Fisher’s Green Lantern: Willworld would be a good one because it again, is sort of about what comics and heroes and all that means/signify. A few more: Gary Panter’s Cola Madnes, Dash Shaw’s Bodyworld, Tardi’s West Coast Blues, and Herge’s Tintin in America.
