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?

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
