one of the best IMO.
The Boys by Garth Ennis is insane.
Fables by Bill Willingham.
The Authority trade paperbacks are for the most part incredible (stuff written by Warren Ellis and Ed Brubaker). Recent The Authority series was good too (Christos Gage).
Today is new comicbook day! Check www.diamondcomics.com under new releases, for the new releases!
can't wait until i have some extra scratch to pick up that new Joker hardcover!
Almost finished with Civil War.
Just have to say, wow.
All Star Superman is next on my to read list.
Also getting Transmetropolitan and Fables.
Anything else good out there?
Right now, I'm in the middle of re-reading Grant Morrison's, The Invisibles. This series blows my mind out in new ways every time I read it. Other awesome Morrison titles are, Animal Man, Doom Patrol, and The Filth.
I just now finished The Impostor's Daugther by Laurie Sandell.
She is a Glamour mag writer, but made a rigth choice of turning her life stories
abour her father in graphic novel form.
And with that, I'll by back in David Mazzucchelli' Asterios Polyp, with is Amafuckin'zing !
if you like warren ellis, you should check out black gas. kick ass zombie stuff put out by avatar.
i've recently been reading
green lantern: blackest night
astro city: dark ages
and inifinity guantlet for about the billionth time...
I read Savage Dragon, Tales of TMNT, and Godland.
Godland i sooo good. great throwback to old-school super-heroes. i have the first 21 issues, but haven't kept up on it so i don't now how many more are out. I read the first part of the Savage Dragon/TMNT crossover, but could never find the second issue (and don't want to order it online for around $0.50 with like $6 shipping). the nice thing about savage dragon is how epic it is and fun at the same time, yet back issues are super cheap!
i just read the roberts it about the boston strangler and the zodiac killer in a retirement home
I just read "Girls" and really enjoyed it.
I finally got my hands on TMNT Collected Book Volume 1. It's 600+ pages of the original 80's black and white awesomeness.
The Goon by Eric Powell
Jesus Christ by Eric Peterson,
that series was great. i love the lunas brothers stuff. it's pretty basic art style, but all around fun, and totally crazy. have you read Ultra yet?
I have not read "Ultra" yet but I did read a couple issues of "The Sword" and enjoyed what I read.
In no order
Fables (Really like the dude they got to replace JJ - didn't think he'd be able to hold a candle to the previous covers)
Kick-Ass (Issue 7 finally!, but WTF was w/ the "Beach City Cooking" add w/ the giant fried crab!?!?!
Also casting a weasel like NC TOTALLY makes sense now even if he isn't in on the joke)
Sweet Tooth really looks promising. I love new books that can grab me from the first issue.
I can also recommend Wednesday Comics the new ( issue #12 today) newspaper style serialized weekly with about a dozen different one page strips.
Caught up w/ Walking Dead and man!
Some pretty wicked stuff going on.
Can't wait to see how it ends w/ the current story.
Anyone read House of Mystery?
And Kick-Ass 7 was just
comics. manga: one piece. non-manga: invisibles
i've been tempted by the new house of mystery.
is it any good?
Started it today.
It reminded me a bit of The Sandman, especially book VIII where they sit around the tavern telling stories.
There's also Cain and Abel.
This. I love many other comics on this thread, but Goon is amazing.
No Hero by Warren Ellis just completed....it was a serialized graphic novel with an incredible anti-hero story. I totally reccomend this title. (and yes, the Goon does rule.)
