Comic books and graphic novels . . .

Post by The Boss » Sat Feb 15, 2014 2:17 am

Didn't I already make a thread for this? I couldn't find it, guys, so merge as you see fit if you find it.

Just got that link from a fellow comic book enthusiast. Vaughn isn't bad - he did "Y: THE LAST MAN" and some other stuff. This looks pretty good.

If you've been shying away from comic books because they're for nerds or some other ridiculous reason, try the "PARKER" series. Hard-boiled criminal stuff set in the '60s. Based on the novels. Great, hard stuff.

I went through my digital collection the other day, and I think it'd be safe to say I'm the real deal when it comes to comic books. I don't do superheroes (besides BATMAN *swoon*), and I don't do cheesy shit.

Ask me anything. The guy that linked me the above got me into some pretty arty and underground stuff, so I'd like to think I know my shit.
O love will you read the letters I will send to you.

Our local library actually has a really good collection of graphic novels. I need to start checking more out. Aside from The Watchmen and the Dark Knight I've read very few.

Well, I'm sure they share a few similarities, and the movie wasn't that bad I didn't think.

No, they're literally nothing alike.

As a Freemason, it's almost criminal that you haven't read "FROM HELL".

Well, considering they both cover the same topic, I'd say they are "literally" alike. We'll see.

Very, very barely. Seriously, read it before making statements like that.

I love comic books but I'm totally a "superhero" guy. I'm afraid I got nothing to add to this thread then.

Would you like to try some different stuff?

Superhero stuff is fine. I'd just like to raise awareness of one of my favourite mediums.

I have read plenty of non superhero comics, many of which were really cool. The Grant Morrison written one with the mechanical dog and cat comes to mind. The few Sandman ones that I was able to read come to mind. There are others that my boozed up mind can't recall at the moment.

But nothing beats a good ol superhero comic for me.

Like when Superman beat Thor in a straight up fight, then got his ass beat by the other Avengers. In a JLA vs Avengers fight, Superman and Thor were the first two to fall! SO cool. And I am far from a Superman or Thor or JLA fan.

Or how about something like Ultimate X-men #41? Look it up, such a cool little fucked up story.

I don't read comics anywhere as much as I used to, but I'll always be a comic book geek. Obviously.

If you have a 10'' tablet, you MUST read comic books.

Already, I'd assume you'd love "FELL" and "30 DAYS OF NIGHT". Both done by my favourite artist, Ben Templesmith (Aussie!!!).

I have a Dropbox sharing thing going with my buddy (who, incidentally, wants to do another book together), so I'm happy to share my collection with other people.

I love Judge Dredd

I used to collect the DREDD cards when I was a teenager.

Wow, that's embarrassing.

Dredd is fucking legitimate.

Make a Dropbox account. Might be pretty big for the series (maybe 750meg?) but totes worth it.

I'll hook you up FOR BORROWING PURPOSES.

"PREACHER" sucks. Seriously. If you've read "LUCIFER", you'd know what I mean.

"FELL" is by far the most compelling series I've read. And there's fucking nine issues or some shit!
