I'm another fan of "Watchmen"; are there other such you
can recommend?  I know about "Maus".

What is "pomo"?  There've been a number of references in
the discussion of Eco and "The Name of the Rose".  Personally,
I tend to hate any story that ends with the set blowing up,
no matter how good the lead-in has been--it's a cheap trick,
and overused.

One attraction of Wolfe's work for me is that he doesn't go
for the cheap effect.
