I know we had one quite recently, but thought we were due another comics thread.
Just finished Y the last man, which had a bloody incredible ending. Such a seriously good series.
On a whim I bought Vol. 1 of the manhatten projects, which is absolutely batshit crazy. Have bought the other volumes and am working my way through them.
Also bought the hardcover vol.1 of the new Hawkeye- still need to read it though.
Great bunch of lads
Fucking awful times.
I'm a lifetime member of teh beano club.
Think I still have issue 3000 somewhere.
Gnashers eyes move when you shake the badge.
More innocent times. He'd have an erect lipstick stuck out these days.
I think it was either sheeldz or guntrip talking about it.
I bought Sweet Tooth Vol 1 inspired by another thread too.
So, you know. Your lives aren't totally wasted.
Buy Y the last man. Guntrip likes it.
Better be good.
I hope you did
It hasn't gripped me I'm sad to say.
I'm sure DarwinDude would love the fact that there's one man left alive on the planet and yet the story is still pretty much about him.
My daughter is going through my old 2000ADs. Good to pass on the ol' nerd baton.
Pretty Deadly vol 1
Gosh Comics had it on sale with a ltd edition art print in it. Still on sale as far as I know, going for like £8 or something. Definitely worth it.
I've just finished The Auteur's first run, 5th issue was out last week. It was fantastic, really silly and violent and sharp. I've also got in to the Big Trouble In Little China comic, and Ash Gets Hitched which is a new run of Army Of Darkness comics. Both are good, the Big Trouble comic especially. Plus the new volume of Vampirella is really good. Next up I'm going to plough through the whole Crisis On Infinite Earths thing, which is daunting but hopefully fun.
Ordered issue 1 & 2 of The Empty Man yesterday, it looks pretty great:
don't be put off by the crap photos and formatting
Warlord, Battle Picture Weekly, Commando. Great times!
Just ordered sweet tooth volume 5 best post apocalyptic comic since Y
Still haven't finished the deluxe volume 1s of revival and the invisibles. On the second the massive. Saga obviously, 49p on iTunes per issue.
Just finished the grant morrisson followed by joss whedon a runs on xmen. Both excellent, morrisson always leaves my brain tingling.
For some reason the name put me off?
Then we can talk about how it's great and stuff. You might need to be into punk maybe. This song is referenced at one point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXcy1qnEGlA
Finally signed up to my local library. Peckham Library has an insane sized collection.
Didn't have time to root through it, but picked up Walking dead 1 (excellent!), Sandman 1 and 2 and Batman: Killing Joke.
Reserving books at the library most convenient to you = the way forward.
I think I will get involved with that for reading the Walking Dead, but the sheer amount of them available was really exciting.
Abelard - a lovely tale of a naive little bird travelling to America to go to space and capture a star to give to a girl. Delightful stuff...up until the last third when it became unbearably depressing out of nowhere and shat all over my day. Fuck you Abelard.
Saga pt.3 - still great. Gonna have to invest in my own copies of these so I can harass friends to read them.
Depresso - I do love a good dealing with depression tale. This one was pretty good.
Hickman's run on the Avengers - I love Hickman's stuff but don't really read any Marvel. This was just batshit mental and I have no idea what really happened. I think I enjoyed it?
Got the first part of The Massive, the second Blacksad, part five of Northlanders, Garth Ennis' Red Team, Asterios Polyp and the first part of Fables to read next. God bless Cardiff library.
This is what made me want to brush up on the whole DC Multiverse/Infinite Earths palaver. I've started reading the TP collections of the Silver Age "Crisis On Multiple Earths", and I have a big reading list of stuff to wade through before I tackle the main series, having only really seen bits and pieces of it. Same for the Infinite Crisis and Final Crisis stuff, should be fun to go through it properly.
Reading Crossed - Wish You Were Here online as well; that's pretty dark D:
Stopped reading Walking Dead - not sure why really. Although I did inadvertently read a spoiler regarding what happens to one of the main characters and thought "fuck that." Think I stopped at 13 or 14.
My local library has all of the volumes. Still need to read the last two, but (yeah I know its an obvious rec to make) I wholly recommend them to all comic fans.
Has anyone read any of sandman overture?
Also caught up with all of the Wicked and Divine. really is great fun and can't wait to see where it goes.
I really, really like it. Felt like a barrage of characters were introduced in about three pages in the last one though.
I'm still ploughing through Fables and I'm loving that. Also making my way through 100 Bullets, which is also great. And Five Ghosts too.
I definitely prefer reading volumes (trades?) than individual comics.
and paperbacks tend to give closure to a run or storyline.
Also read the first volume of Fables. It was really good and would love to see where it goes next. Guess im due another library trip.
I need to read Sandman and Preacher - they both look right up my street.
I loved Good Omens but assumed that was mainly due to Pratchett. The books of his I've bothered to read have been boring (Neverwhere, The Graveyard Book).
dwhich I'd enjoyed but thought was merely okay and a bit overlong in parts. I guess comics allow for economy of scale.
Don't know if that's any help to you?
It's pretty good, it basically has a lot of the themes of high school movies including high school angst, teenage recklessness and awkward romance but set amongst a school for assassins, issue 7 should be out later this month.
Today Is The Last Day Of The Rest Of Your Life
The Hip-Hop Family Tree vol 1
<3 Page 45.
I've never been to Page 45 but I've bought posters from there before <3
such a great book. The artwork is beautiful.
Also finally read Cinema Panopticum by Thomas Ott, which is impressively unsettling and odd.
The Big Trouble In Little China comic is rattling along nicely, it's a really fun, kind of throwaway treat and well worth catching up on (currently at issue 4).
I have to admit, sometimes I love a gimmick, so I've picked up the 3D cover Futures End - 5 Years Later one-shot for Batgirl mainly because I've enjoyed Gail Simone's run, and I'll pick up Batwoman this weekend. Might have a flick through some others and see which are worth grabbing. Quite enjoying the very silly Futures End plot, tbh
