Just finished reading The Punisher Volumes 4-6, which is more or less Garth Ennis' entire run. It was completely fascinating and I love the Tim Bradstreet covers. I remember reading about him back in the day in Wizard magazine. Great painter.

Also read, by writer Ed Brubaker, Criminal which was incredible. Wished there was more of this stuff. Is anyone else familiar? Also checked out Deadenders (which I loved) and Fatale (didn't get hooked by the first issue) by him as well.

Downloaded but haven't read yet: Elephantmen, Planetary, Y - The Last Man, Alan Moore's run with Swamp Thing (read bits of it), Transmetropolitan, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

Still haven't done things like finish the entire Sandman run or all of Sin City, though.

What, if anything, is anybody reading? Anybody know anything about Ed Brubaker?

Still looking for any digital versions of "chester gould's complete dick tracy" past the first couple

slunken I highly recommend Jason Aaron's recent Punisher MAX run...the whole story is 20-something issues. Art by Steve Dillon. It's very dark and very good.

TuralyonW3 07-27-2014 11:30 PM

TuralyonW3 07-27-2014 11:32 PM

The Maxx is definitely my favourite comic series ever but also gotta recommend Y, A God Somewhere, Walking Dead (WAY better than the show), DMZ, uhh... I'm sure there's a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting. If you can handle all the tiny detail b&w anime stuff the books of Akira are awesome too.

Order 66 07-28-2014 02:05 AM

i've got the first issue of maxx rotting away somewhere. plus the first spawn

is Image still around?

Trotskilicious 07-28-2014 04:52 AM

it's a subsidiary of DC

Trotskilicious 07-28-2014 04:53 AM

they made soem bad comics

remember youngblood by rob liefeld

Order 66 07-28-2014 05:16 AM

yes. even i didn't bother with that in the early 90s so thats probably saying a lot

Trotskilicious 07-28-2014 05:20 AM

i basically viewed any books not to do with the x men to be illegitimate.

which is hilarious at this point

davin 07-28-2014 05:43 AM

yea, most image comics were bad. they looked great, but it was just unoriginal characters and shitty stories for the most part. and their issues were all overpriced.

youngblood and all the youngblood off-shoots, brigade, deathblow, pitt, wet works, cyber force, shadow hawk, wildc.a.t.s., the original supreme, Union....they all flopped or sucked in one way another...lol.

I was around for the launch. still have a launch poster signed by 7 of the 8 image comics founders, plus Dale Keown and another non-founder artist whose name I can't recall at the moment. still have an ashcan of almost every #1 of every image title too. heh.

I actually blame the creation of Image for the end of an exciting time for comics, which it was in the early 90's... until the well written ones started having shitty art and the well drawn ones had no story.

Trotskilicious 07-28-2014 05:56 AM

the authority and planetary were good doe

basically once they realized they needed writers other people stepped in

alan moore even had a imprint on image for a bit, that's where league of extraordinary gentlemen came from

Trotskilicious 07-28-2014 05:56 AM

i admit i bought gen 13 because of fairchild and general T&A, i am ashamed to say

fuzzyroes 07-28-2014 06:50 AM

I like buying old comics just for the sake of looking at all of the old advertisements.

The only new comics I ever buy here and there are Archie comics. They're tremendously silly, but i find they're good for a nice wholesome chuckle/light, little read here and there.... Yeah, yeah, yeah, troll away.

Trotskilicious 07-28-2014 07:01 AM

you're the one trolling

fuzzyroes 07-28-2014 07:40 AM

No man. I actually do buy Archie comics every now and again. I guess it's a bit of a nostalgia thing, but I do get a wholesome enjoyment from them.

yo soy el mejor 07-28-2014 09:04 AM

comics are like poetry

shoot - just now saw this. grabbing it now.

recently finished punisher volumes 4-6 plus punishermax or in other words, punisher from 2000-2012.

started on punisher war zone from 1992 which ran for 40-some issues until 1995. after reading the garth ennis stories, the romita artwork is looking pretty insane.

slunken 08-12-2014 07:34 PM

after this i have a few volumes of frank millers sin city to finish and then i want to catch up to where i left off reading gaiman's sandman.

slunken 08-12-2014 07:35 PM

all i need is a stolen pack of cigarettes and an oversized nin shirt
