    Either the idea virus one or the parkour one.

    If this is a non-comics reader, I fully support the trade idea. If you limit someone's exposure to one issue of any series and they aren't used to the partial satiation that an issue versus a trade provides, you may be limiting their desire for further doses of comics.

    Since Global Frequency isn't overwhelming in magnitude, throwing both trades their way shouldn't be much of a deterrent...

    (I'm a big fan of the Parkour one, as well.)

    Hey guys, thanks for the badass response to my first thread here! I wound up just loaning him #1, which he said was a pretty cool idea (But he thought it had some plot holes). I think it won't be too hard to set him up with the remainder of the series, which will hopefully lure him in to the medium.

    I think the wide variety of responses is really proof that GF has a unique attractiveness for a series. Here's hoping for a season 2.

    It may have had the least to do with the overall story, but the special with the many varieties of Batman is the one I hook people with.

    I have to say: in doing the covers, I got a look at Warren's proposal document as well as at least the first two scripts for this book. Not only did they teach me how to write a compelling and successful proposal, and not only did this series help inspire the Demo format, they also helped further* teach me how to write comics, period. Hopefully how to write GOOD comics. I love this series to death for so many reasons.

    * Warren's GEN X scripts were the best boot camp I could have hoped for. I don't think I ever saw a comic book script before that.

    The parkour issue is quite a crowdpleaser, it'd seem.

    The bit in GF with the little girl seeing the gal leaping about, "Mommy, Superman is a girl and she looks like us!" has stuck with, as we live in a world where I can't really pick up a superhero comic where my nieces can get that kind of thrill. The other end of this always points out that it should be the deeds that inspire kids, not culture or the skin and genitals, and I think that can work for adults, but for kids? It's a nice dream, anyway.

    I'd suggest, for your friend, thinking hard about what most appeals to them and less about what we liked, though.
