The Best Comics You'll (Probably) Never Read - PW

The Best Comics You'll (Probably) Never Read - 1/26/2009 3:39:00 PM - Publishers Weekly: "If your favorite director makes a movie but never gets past shooting the first few scenes, you'll probably never see it. If a novelist you like couldn't sell his latest project, you won't get a look at it until he's dead and academics are pillaging his attic. But if a comic book gets derailed halfway through, chances are at least part of it was already out on the stands, ready for the curious to page through it.

So here are ten tales of comicus interruptus—unfinished stories that might have changed the medium if they'd ever gotten onto the page, or, in a couple of cases, managed to change the medium in spite of perils like imploding publishers, nasty divorces, and freestyle bookkeeping. None of these series have been concluded yet, but all of them are in back-issue bins and on eBay for those who are still curious."
