The Pact

No, not swapping my first-born son with Darkseid. I've made a deal with my wife: for every day that I go running, she'll read a comic. So far, I've gotten her to read the first five issues of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' Sleeper. (She said she didn't like it much at first--too violent--but I noticed yesterday that she was reading ahead. She is a sucker for finding out what happens next.)

After she finishes the first trade, I think I'll have her read Jeff Parker and Leonard Kirk's Agents of Atlas, as I work on getting from a 36 back into my wedding pants. Any other suggestions for what I should have her read? The last serial comic she followed with any kind of enthusiasm was The Invisibles.

Comments:
If she lives and dies by knowing what comes next, I say give her 100 Bullets or Dr. 13.
 
Has she read SANDMAN? All the distaff geekmates I know who don't read comics end up loving SANDMAN.
