Nemesis is cool so far, but I feel like way too much has happened in just two issues.

Also, going to try and finish up Preacher and start The Boys (I think Magnetic mentioned that?)

^^You definitely won't be bored :D

^The Boys is really good, an original spin on the superhero comic, for anyone else thinking of giving it a read.

read this yesterday:

fuuuuuuuuuuuck Crossed's just pushing that envelope big time... so unexpected from Lapham...

DUM - The Boys is great. I do appreciate that they're written in ARCS. Why has that format so rare in comics nowadays?

I recommend STRAY BULLETS...

Preacher is way better than I expected. I can't believe I had slept on it for so long. It starts out really strange, but once the story develops it gets better and better. I'm only about 20 issues in, but I can't wait to see where it leads.

speaking of old vertigo shit

i've been reading a ton of old Hellblazer comics

amazing stuff - i think it was a bit too adult for me as a teenager

can relate to it a lot more now

amazing people worked on that comic - grant morrison, jamie delano, garth ennis...

really dark and atmospheric

it is pretty wild being able to grab all the hellblazers at the local library for free

wish they carried graphic novels at the library when i was a wee lad

also been grabbing all the gegika books D&Q have been putting out

am in the middle of RED SNOW right now and it is excellent

BOX MAN was a trip - prefigured shit like Jim Woodring's FRANK comics

(which I love) and like... LORD QUAS!

amazing that the US didn't catch up to postwar japan's comics until say, the late 1960s...

Still wishing they'd release the final volumes of this for the US market. Apparently the sales were so low they just gave up.

Sup Magnetic, sup DÃœM. Crossed is great and so is The Boys.

Been catching up on The Goon, and then my cousin got me onto this;

came across my comic book collection (in storage b/c of moving) this past weekend...

The 'Nam was a great series and one of my personal favorits. Althought it was ruined after the 1st 13 issues b/c of personel (artist and writer) changes...

^^^^I only read Scalped very recently, gave the latest issue a go and it was really good. What I really liked was that the issue seemed quite self-contained, nevertheless I'm gonna have to go back and read the rest.

Scalped is awesome. One of the few comics my wife reads as well.

Been getting into some old-school Doom Patrol and I must say it is really a gem. I daresay it does make early X-Men read like the cheap rip-off alot of people believe it to be. I didn't want to shell out big dollars for the Archive editions so I've been picking up ratty old floppies. Pretty good aesthetic to reading those shitty, crumbling books!

The Occult Files of Doctor Spektor is another good old one I've started. 70s Gold Key fare. Kind of turns the cheesy-horror-host archetype on its head. It's in a trade now, but again, if LCS has a trade for fifty bucks, or a stack for twenty, I'll go for the stack.

i love the old Doom Patrol series

well, really, every incarnation of the series

reading the old issues of the first series is the only way to do it

half the fun is reading the old ads

finally up to #77 on walking dead

and i'm halfway through alan moore's Lost Girls

and i'm kinda nonplussed

^ I agree about the ads! Reading the old letter columns is another big plus.

I'm looking forward to eventually reading the Kupperberg stuff. I've liked his writing, but I can't really remember what I have read of his...I was thinking Sword of the Atom (an outstanding mini-series) but that's Gil Kane/*Jan Strnad

Reread Dash Shaw's Bottomless Belly Button. It is a (fantastic) monster. Something like 720 pages, each one is lovely.

Just started reading Solalin and it's very good so far.

Also purchased the first 3 Tin-Tin comics in a hardback copy so I am really excited to start those after Solalin.

Binged a few days ago. I seem to have this mild sickness where I won't read comics ever, realize that Garth Ennis did another series, and then spend roughly 13 hours in one go reading through a series.

Preacher

Transmetropolitan

and lately, Hitman.

I love his stuff, gritty, poignant, and occasionally hilarious.

Hitman has to be the only comic I've ever read that dealt with family, brotherhood, pissing off the entire Mafia, demon spawn running bars, and the problems of maintaining a relationship in a realistic manner.

This made me laugh a little :)

About halfway through this. Never realised how much adult-oriented stuff Osamu Tezuka did, only remember his style from Astro Boy as a kid. This is full of all sorts of murder and transgender wierdness. Probably going to read Ode to Kirihito next...

King City

Just Another XY - Check out The Boys

Kinq City is great. I'm buying the two-panel chapter title art of Joe looking at his reflection in the toilet then pissing in it. I also want the one with Anna in the tub but Brandon Graham can't find it (hasn't sold it though so I'm hoping). Bathroom pastiche stuff. Second choices would be Anna with the knuckle tats or something from Multiple Warhedz or Madame Xanadu.
