    Default WE3 : This one blew me away!

    Recent aquisition is the trade paperback of the WE3 miniseries.

    It is incredibly well illustrated, action-packed and touching.

    The story is about three housepets (a dog, a cat and a rabbit) that have been turned into cyborg war machines. When the goverrnment program plans to 'decommision' them, they make a run for it.

    Most of the dialog is by the animals themselves as they have been enhanced to be able to speak.

    Eventhough this title is a bit violent, the theme of the story is much more than that. It's about three housepets who are simply trying to get 'home'.

    WE3 was pretty sweet. I'll read anything Morrison writes, because he's better than most of the writers out there.

    Incidently, it's been stated, though not officially confirmed, that the WE3 crew were meant as a precursor to Wolverine in Weapon X. Though WE3 is not a Marvel book, the Weapon Plus program stated that animals were used as test subjects at one point. Both stories were written by Grant Morrison.

    Default What Are You Currently Reading: Comics

    I figure between the popularity of the original WAYCR thread and the amount of comic fans we would be able to support a WAYCR: Comics post. This will also give us some recommendations on good material. So I'll start us off...

    Im in the middle of Warren Ellis' gritty cop drama, Fell, from Image comics. The stories are ones that only a mind like Ellis can come up with and Ben Templesmith unique stylized artistic style just adds to the dirty feeling of this great comic. It's a good pickup if you want something other than super heroes for a change.

    Good idea

    I'm currently reading Marvel's Secret Invasion, the DT comics, and I recently started collecting Cable.

    Oh man, I couldn't tell ya - it came free with my purchase of Secret Invasion Truth be told , I've never been particularly big on the X-Men, with the exception of Wolverine.

    I'll look at the artist(s) when i get home and post them here.

    Such a great yet simple thread idea, I'm amazed no one thought of it before!

    Erin - I think you would like this one as a fan of post apocalyptic story lines. I just finished The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman:



    From the Introduction - Good Zombie movies show us how messed up we are, they make us question our station in society and our society's station in the world.

    Good read in BW so it's a cheap purchase, especially as graphic novels go.

    Also, through the grace of friends, the Long Road Home.

    I've been re-reading old Fables issue and catching up on issues that i missed before, plus keeping up with The Walking Dead. Prior to that it was Planetary and The Authority.

    Great topic!

    Lets see - I am reading the DT comics and collecting them as well. Also, I read Daredevil. I particularily enjoy the Frank Miller DDs, back from like 20 years ago. I re-read those a lot.

    I also tend to re-read some X-Men. Extinction Agenda is completely AWESOME and the whole Dark Phoenix arc is great.
    The Man In Black Fled Across The Desert...

    ...And The Gunslinger Followed.

    Love everything mentioned turtlex--I remember when those Miller DD's were hitting the rack, they are amazing.

    I've read a couple issues of Battle Pope, but it was a long time ago, before The Walking Dead. I don't even remember much about them. Kirkman is from near where I live and a friend had shown me some Battle Pope issues years ago.

    I'd like to read some of Invincible as well, but have never gotten around to it.

    Walking Dead - Every issue, my heart gets broken, and I only want more.

    The Boys - Dark and tasteless.

    Umbrella Academy - Once I got over the shock of loving a book written by the
    guy from My Chemical Romance, I enjoyed it even more.

    Wolverine : Origins - It's made Logan relevant again in my eyes.

    X-Factor - Peter David is my hero.

    Runaways - Even though it's a monthly that only seems to come out once a year.

    I've got all the Gunslinger Born comics, minus the trade paperback. I'm kinda tempted, but it feels a bit of a waste since I've got the entire thing in issue form... and more material besides with the back stories. I plan on getting a slipcase folder of some kind, that way I get the best of both worlds.

    I'm currently getting The Long Road Home (not too long to the next issue now!)

    I also subscribe to 2000 AD. In case you haven't heard of it, it's a British science fiction anthology mag. As an anthology there are pros and cons.

    Pros, there are plenty of material and variety. And if you dislike some there are plenty of others to like.

    Cons: each episode is only 5-6 pages in length as the rest of the space is filled with other strips. Sometimes one would rather get their teeth into one character and story. Many are collected into trade paperbacks later though so it's possible to get the best of both worlds. Again I feel disinclined to go for those if I've already got the story in the mags. Unfortunately the folder route doesn't work as it would for the Gunslinger comics due to the anthology nature. (Could do that with scan and print myself of course but that feels like a waste of paper. )

    It comes weekly, so it's a nice thing to dip into regularly though.

    Been reading X-Men and pretty much all the spinoff books for most of my life, though I haven't been seriously collecting them till about four years ago, give or take. Now I'm really liking Ed Brubaker's Captain America run, which is surprising, considering I never much cared for Cap, until he died. Haven't made it out to the comic shop in a while, though.

    I love Grant Morrison. I want to read We3 so bad. I wish that Borders would stock that, more of the Invisibles and New X-Men.

    I finally started Sandman, read the first two volumes, and loved the hell out of 'em.

    Y:the Last Man- I've read the first 5 trades, haven't picked up any individual issues, and it's too late now.

    I love Astonishing X-Men. Need to get the Giant-Sized issue.

    Runaways. Can't wait to pick up the latest trade with Joss Whedon's run.

    The Invisibles has become possibly my favorite comic ever. Combine the best parts of The Matrix (which ripped of The Invisibles so bad), mysticism and counterculture. It adds up to love.

    All Star Superman is amazing.

    I've been looking for the first volume of New X-Men, but everywhere I go they don't have it. It's very depressing.

    I recently got Animal Man from the library, good read.
    Second collection of Swamp Thing by Alan Moore. I highly recommend Alan Moore's stuff.

    Oh and a couple of Judge Dredd books. Kind of filling in the back stories of the character as I missed a lot of that having only been reading 2000AD since last year. There's another man in the gunslinger mold. Darker in some ways than even Roland. (Don't believe the Stalone movie.) And they've got a blasted lands on their doorstep- The Cursed Earth.
