could this be a good idea? A good way to get some interesting comics read and discussed...Lets do it!?
If it concerned Clowes and suchlike I'd definitely be interested...
is an excuse to read comics that you would never think of reading before? Get some good suggestions going, i have read none of the above.
although I've read them both.
The Invisibles is meant to be fantastic.
we should start with what everyone says is the greatest of all time... Watchmen?
it'd probably have to be graphic novels or collections to work, but I like the idea :)
Can we start with Marvel Zombies or Animal Man? :P
I have no bloody idea where to start.
was a great comic.
Perfect for people who dont know where to start and people who are pretty narrowminded when it comes to comics (me). Things like marvel zombies is defo welcome for me!!
We need to appoint someone who is more knowledgeable to organise this...anyone want to nominate themselves?
I'm not super knowledgable but I've got a good idea of what I already like and what comes recommended :)
know how the DiS book club works? The forums seem a little unstructured for this kind of thing maybe?
we could do a live chat about it - even if it's over Messenger or something like that....
via the wonders of a facebook group?
it could certainly be done that way.
Although discussing it on a group "wall" is going to be a bit fragmented and clunky....
I like this idea though :)
like the best way to me!
Hopefully there will be enough people interested
willing to take an interest.
a facebook group, commandercool you going to run this shit?
Although all suggestions and comments will be gratefully received with me being a complete noob :P
There it is, join and ill make you an admin and we can get ideas from people as to how it should work, maybe ZsaZsa can help us out too?
ill sort ot
Scrap that link...ill make a new one!!
a new one... ill make you an admin if you like zsazsa. Ive never read any brown. But this is the sort of discussion that will be good to have!
I vote the invisibles, theres alot of discussion to be had, or at the complete opposite end of the spectrum some emoey jeffrey brown type stuff
It's much more comic-y and probably more readable in a fortnight...
here, cant wait to get stuck into some good comics!
we should probably try and get people in who are new to comics and start with watchmen and V for Vendetta on the moore front??
I agree on Watchmen for a variety of reasons.
got to From Hell yet!
Im still working my way through the collected works of his DC stuff at the moment, while perpetually re-reading watchmen
hopefully we'll have some more members by this time tomorrow :)
but you should check out some of his 2000AD stuff as well. The Ballad of Halo Jones is one of the finest things I've ever read, and DR & Quinch hightly enteraining in a really wrong way.
Join the group!!!
Jimmy Corrigan, Rusty Brown, Quimby The Mouse.
Heard good things about ware, does he have collections that we can read?
Best to start with 'Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid On Earth''...the only graphic novel to win The Guardian Booker Prize.
Hasn't stopped me from reading it about 6 times.
good! This comic club could be an amazing thing!
...a garish 'domestos colour pallete,''.
sounds like a brilliant idea, I'm in
