I'm writing a trivia contest for a gaming convention in New Jersey next weekend (Dexcon, Morristown, www.dexposure.com --it's a lot of fun if you're nearby and are any type of gamer). One of the categories is on superhero secret identities. Mostly it's filled with the classic DC and Marvel heroes, which I know pretty well. What I'm not as familiar with are heroes of more recent vintage. I have Rorschach representing the Watchmen, but besides the Watchmen, are there any more current, hip heroes who would be good to use in the contest that I might not be familiar with? Thanks for any suggestions.
Monthly comics are metaphorically more like cassette singles, whereas graphic novels are like LPs. I think there'll always be long-form trades or OGN's but I really think monthly comics are coming toward an end, at least from the big two.
