    I just finished Copra (Round One collection). I've been eyeing these books for a few years because of the quality of the books. The books are an absolute joy to hold in your hand! But unfortunately I found the story to be an utterly boring mess. Won't be picking up Round Two.

    I am a big fan of EC comics. Picked up an original Tales From The Crypt issue 23.

    All EC comic covers shown are art by the amazing Al Feldstein.

    Cool, nice to see the comparison. I have the Russ Cochran oversized hardback slipcover collections of Haunt, Vault and Crypt. Not to everyone's taste because they are b/w but i think they are great. The only downside of EC publications i can see, is the ridiculous over-use of exclamation marks. They!! Do!! My!! Head!! In!!

    Now that's just cool as fuck to look at in general! I get all warm and fuzzy looking at old comic book art from everything before it all became digital. You gotta appreciate the love of the craft and the time used to make each comic book in those era's.

    Yeah man, especially TV tie-in stuff that is actually pretty well drawn and printed. Some of that stuff can be pretty dire.

    More of a fun novelty than a truly decent comic (its OK). Picked this up a while ago randomly in a charity shop. Harvey Comics 1993. I would say whoever designed the cover is a Queen fan!

    I bought this ZOIDS annual at a boot sale for 20p. I was pleasantly surprised how good the contents and artwork were, better than the average tie-in annual to be sure. Published by Marvel (London) 1986

    i haven’t been up on all the happenings in marvel/dc, but i just picked up immortal hulk, and holy shit, it is so good! a friend recommended it to me without telling me anything. i was pretty hesitant since most of the hulk arcs i’ve tried have fallen flat for me. but this one, this one is awesome and i think most of the comic-reading people on this board would dig it. don’t want to give away anything if anyone’s not in the know already :)
