I know that the BW comics will never, ever, ever ever, match up to the original, but I've already segregated the two in my mind a long time ago. I'll go into BW looking to enjoy it on it's own terms.

Fair enough. If it is better than a cash in, let me know. So far, opinion has been pretty divided from the people who read it, really.

(You should be reading Dredd comics first, though. :P)

Oh hell yeah definitely. I'll be looking to get my hands on that Dredd tie-in we were discussing earlier. My hype mode is at critical mass at this point.

Tell me about it! The best comparison I've heard so far is that the new film is "Dirty Harry meets RoboCop". You know what that sounds like to me? Judge Dredd. I can hardly wait.

Oh, and going slightly back to my original point: one of the best stories that did the whole "prequel/flashback" routine and made it work was Judge Dredd story "Origins". Not only did it do a decent job of tying the mythology together, it was also a pretty solid story in its own right. It also set up plenty of the more recent arcs of the strip, too. Not the best Dredd story, but still recommendable.

It isn't excactly just licensed fanfic. It actually goes in deeper to some of the back stories mentioned in the original novel. Sure, there has to be a certain amount of "filling in the gaps."

See, that's my biggest problem. There's doing your own take on long-running established characters - as has been the case numerous times with Superman, Batman, Sherlock Holmes etc - and honestly, I'm ok with that stuff, as characters like those have almost limitless story potential, but the "filling in the gaps" on something as fully formed as the characters in Watchmen just doesn't interest me so much when it's not the creators, and sometimes, even they fuck it up. There will always be the temptation at least on the writers part to deviate from what was canon anyway. Now, I wouldn't be so skeptical, if it weren't for the Dark Tower comics. At first, they were pretty good, but as they went on, they got more and more hit and miss, until I eventually lost interest altogether. In fact, for me, prequel stories don't often work. Look at the Star Wars prequels (although I will admit, I really enjoyed Revenge of the Sith). Like I said, I'd probably give it a shot, if they were great comics. As it is, using the names and characters of one of the greatest graphic novels ever written isn't enough for me to buy 'em atm.

see your point there....they are pretty ok though....not epic, ok though

Right now I am reading the whole Avengers vs. X-men event from this summer and it is actually quite good. It is another Phoenix story at its core, but I have really enjoyed it.

They have done a thing where they put out issues that are just long drawn out fight scenes, separate from the main story arc and it allows them to squeeze more story into the normal issues while still letting you find and see epic fights if you want. The fight between Spiderman and Colossus who is now the Juggernaut was one of my favorites so far.

Jeff Lemire will be having a meet and greet + signing tomorrow. I need to go through all the boxes and find the books I need signed (Animal Man 1, Frankenstein 1, his first JL Dark, also Sweet Tooth trades, Essex County and Underwater Welder. Also I need to buy The Nobody ASAP.

Saga is mindblowingly good. The issues don't come out nearly fast enough to appease by need for it.
I wish Fiona Staples was my friend so she would just draw stuff for me all the time. I really think she is the best artist in the business right now.

I enjoyed AvX, but I would definitely wait for the cheaper copy.

Just finished catching up on 2000AD. Wow. What a way to round off the year. Just...just fucking epic. A story with so many twists and turns and so big, that for one of very, very few times in the strip's history, an entire issue was devoted to the finale (normally, 2000AD is an anthology comic), yet again I'm reminded of why 2000AD is easily one of my favourite comics out there. I'll be keen to see what they've got planned next year.

Halfway through volume 16 of Judge Dredd: Complete Case Files. Now while a lot of this book hasn't been up to the same high standard of most of the previous volumes, mostly because of Garth Ennis on writing duty instead of John Wagner and Alan Grant, the stories "The Devil You Know" and "Twilight's Last Gleaming" were well and truly excellent. A nice end to the Democracy arc that had started since "Letter from a Democrat" over five years before. Gotta admit, while a lot of the stories aren't up to scratch, it's stories like those 2 that show the real benefits of reading the complete run of Dredd in order, as it really helps it feel like an ongoing, developing world that had seen a lot of genuine change. (It says a lot though that those particular 2 stories were written, of course, by John Wagner.)

I spent most of today catching up on comics and it was fantastic. Caught up on Chew, Saga and Morning Glories, all of which are my personal favorites of everything out there right now. Also started a few new series I hadn't looked at yet-

Change
Punk Rock Jesus
The Manhattan Projects
Hawkeye

Really loved all of them. I can't get over how enjoyable Hawkeye is. And if anyone is looking to get into something weird and super out-there that is just starting- definitely try Change.

Also........Morning Glories.......it keeps getting more and more strange in a good way, yeah?

Morning Glories is getting real strange. I love the second group they've introduced, and the feeling that you can trust absolutely no one is so great.

My brother suggested I pick up Punk Rock Jesus and read the first few issues we have, and I was pretty impressed too. You should -definitely- read Change, Chris. It's right up your alley.

Looking to start Morning Glories soon.

I think that as soon as Batman wraps up it's current "Death of the Family" arc I'm going to stop collecting single issue comics for a bit, it's getting way too expensive for me. I'll sporadically advance in certain series as I've been doing, collecting TPB's here and there. My priority right now is Chew, The Unwritten, and Preacher.

Chris I think I may have asked you this in the past, but did you ever read Revolver by Matt Kindt? I loved that too, but the artwork in both series is less comic booky and almost more like a comic strip to me. It makes it a little harder to get into (for me anyway). But for both books- definitely worth trying to get used to the artwork so that you can read the story. Matt Kindt is becoming one of my favorites.

Yeah, I think we did have a conversation about Revolver. I haven't read it. I will give Mind MGMT another try soon, though. I have seven days off work coming up starting on Thursday, so I will be doing some comic catch up.

I started reading Thief of Thieves a week or so ago and it's pretty effing cool. It's by Robert Kirkman, James Asmus, an Nick Spencer (who writes Morning Glories). Kirkman said he was inspired by the way TV show writers work, and wanted to try someone similar with this comic. Apparently a show on AMC is already in the works based on the comic. I've probably mentioned this elsewhere, but I've always been fascinated with thieves and elaborate heists, so I was bound to enjoy this. The dialogue is quick and interesting, the artwork is dark and one of those instances where it just coincides so well with the writing. Definitely recommend it, especially if you're looking for a completely no superhero / no sci-fi kind of story.

WeDealInLead
04-04-2013, 09:08 AM
I haven't posted in this thread in a while. This is a quick list of on-going books I'm still reading:

Animal Man - Jeff Lemire is still on it. He's a (semi) local boy, and I dig his melancholy writting style whether it's in superhero books or his own books (Underwater Welder, Sweet Tooth etc)

TDT - I can't stop now. I'm still on the fence if the non-King material is canon or not but whatever, it's $3 a month.

Justice League Dark - the very much underrated underdogs of the DC universe. One of my favourite New 52 books

Battlefields by Garth Ennis. I'm a little tired of his over the top horror shit and violence so this is a nice change. I've read these since they started a few years ago. This is I think the 5th arc and we're re-introduced to some familiar faces.

The Massive - Brian Wood. If you enjoyed DMZ, you'll like this too. He's also writting Star Wars now but IMO, this, socio-political commentary and exploration into terrible "what if" situations is what he's best at.

The Unwritten - still going strong. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these books. There's a crossover of sorts coming up with Fables. Can't wait.

I've dropped the following:

Crossed - nothing ever gets resolved, it's become tedious with all the violence. The original arc was fantastic - The Walking Dead on steroids but with very strong character development.

Batman by Scott Snyder. I loved the first three arcs but I like books that I know have a beginning, middle and ending. With titles like Batman and similar heavy-hitters they can keep introducing new villains indefinitely.

Batwoman - I'll miss looking at that fantastic art but again, an indefinite story line is not for me.

Saga - Love the books but I'll stick to trades.

Stitched - I liked the first arc by Ennis. It was gruesome and had his signature humour. Wished he would've ended it instead of getting Wolfer to continue for him. I like the idea of "zombies" controlled by black magic but not at $4 a pop.

I'm still reading TWD and Fables in collected editions (omnibus or deluxe hardcovers) and I'm always on the lookout for a good book that flew under my radar e.i. The Rising Stars compendium.

Been reading some collected Judge Dredd material. In this case, it's stuff that I've already read in the comics, but it's nice to read all the stories one after another and have it flow together as one massive arc as opposed to piece by piece in the anthology comic.

Current arc I'm reading is the two-volume Tour of Duty, in which Dredd standing up for mutant rights sees him effectively expelled from Mega-City 1. Finished reading the first volume Friday - which was really just the build up to the main storyline, although it was excellent build up - now reading the 2nd volume for the past couple of days and really enjoying it. Already halfway and up to the one of the final - albeit massive (by Dredd standards) - arcs of the story, The Talented Mayor Ambrose. It always impresses me not only how great and fresh the creator of Judge Dredd John Wagner's material is after 35 years, but how he actually seems to have gotten better with age. I hope he doesn't leave anytime soon!

Greg Rucka - Lazarus. S.F. stuff. The planet is controlled and owned by a few families who war within and without.
Millar - Jupiter's Legacy. Superhero stuff. It's not corny. Promise.
Scott Snyder (King's favourite)- The Wake. Nautical nightmares from the hottest writer today.
Jeff Lemire - Justice League Dark + Animal Man. Underdogs of the superhero universe. Really good stuff. He writes about the human aspect of being a superhero.

Other stuff whose writers I can't remember:

The Dream Merchant, East of West (weirdo S.F. stuff), Prophet (really, really weird S.F. stuff, 5 stars), Unwritten (now crossing over with Fables), The Massive (from the writer of Under the Dome TV show). These are just on-going books, I read waaaay more collected stuff. I keep a list in the "2013 book list" thread.

Dark Victory is a great follow up to Long Halloween. But I love Long Halloween. It is my favorite Batman story because it focuses on a mystery which is what Batman is all about.

Captain Britain- A Crooked World.

I wasn't sure of this at the start, but it's pretty good now. I'm not that acquainted with Captain Britain (despite being British myself), but I'm finding Captain Britain is a bit of a complainer. Physically he is far more powerful than his American counterpart but lacking the blue man's mental steel. Being so flawed isn't a bad thing in this case though. He's not 'all round heroic'. Neither is he the dark anti-hero. He is very human though. And that in a very surreal setting. This world's not the only thing a bit crooked.
-------
EDIT- I finished it last night. Yep a good read! I as a bit worried near the end that the Captain wouldn't get to do much stuff himself (he seemed to spend many of his confrontations getting beaten up) but somehow his role worked out in a satisfactory way at the end of the arc.
------
As far as individual comics are concerned, I continue to read:

2000 AD (Slaine's back. This issue came with two variant covers. The cool thing about getting this digital is that you get both in the same comic. Great stuff.)
Judge Dredd Megazine.
Animal Man
Swamp Thing
All Star Western.

I don't think there's any I dislike at the moment. Feeling a tad impatient for Animal Man and All Star Western to got down in price on Comixology. It's been taking it's time...

Ex Machina is super good. I've still been reading and enjoying The Walking Dead.

I'll check the library for Morning Glories trades. I remember I had the first issue and didn't think much of it. Sold it on eBay for twenty bucks and bought some Warren Ellis trades. A good deal, if I may say so.

I just got the books from the shop and it's Lazarus, East of West, Trilium and Unwritten. Sooo many good non-superhero books coming out.

I don't really read superhero comics anymore. It's the same old shit. The only superhero book(s) I read is Batman, but that's because he's my all time favorite.

I'd much, much rather read indie titles. I love the unpredictability and the fact that they don't have to adhere to decades old tropes.

Same. I have the classic Batman titles and I read Snyder's Batman but stopped when The Death in the Family arc finished. I don't think he could ever top those first 18 (I think) issues. I have Joss Wheedon's run of X-Men, FF by Warren Ellis, a few books by Frank Miller but overall, supes are maybe 1% of my comic book collection. IDW, Oni, Avatar, Image, some Boom! is where it's at.

Fables are great. If you're a fan of those books, check out Unwritten. They have a similar vibe and there's actually a Fables/Unwritten crossover for #50 of Unwritten.

I'll have to check it out, thanks. Oh also not much of a comic story but it did take place at my local store. So the other day Game of Thrones author George RR Martin was signing books at the store for about two hours. There ended up being a small enough group that people got to talk to him and ask him questions. Unfortunately I don't own any hard copies of his books and because of the government shut down I didn't have the money to spare to get a book. So posses I couldn't go.

I'm thinning out my pull-list at the shop. I don't have a single superhero book from the Big Two anymore. I just don't care for adventure after adventure after adventure. How many shenanigans can one get into in a lifetime? Boring. I really, really like the New 52 in their initial stages (first arc or two each) but I dropped them all slowly when they started getting stale. I still think first two arcs of Batman by Snyder will be considered a must-have in years to come but past The Death in the Family, I just don't care.

I like my stories to have a beginning and end. Read Neil Gaiman's intro to Rising Stars to see why that makes sense.

Reading The Wake by Scott Snyder. Epic, scary apocalyptic stuff. Trillium by Jeff Lemire. Prophet, Saga, East of West for super smart, weird S.F. Unwritten if you miss Harry Potter but add some beheadings, murder, dismemberment and such.

I also get trades and hardcovers of BPRD, Fatale, 100 Bullets. Most things on Image and Vertigo really.

When it come to comics from a brick and mortar store I was only getting the dark tower comics because comixology wasn't carrying them.

All-Star Superman was great, duh.

Marvel's Contest of Champions was a waste of time.

Infinity Gauntlet was very hard for me to get into, I started skipping around once I hit the 25% point.

Black Orchid was beautifully drawn (Dave McKean), but the story itself (Neil Gaimen) was very simple. A little too simple and uneventlful. Great characters, not enough story.

Wolverine Goes To Hell (starts the Wolverine Volume 4 series): Amazing. Dark, brutal, and very enjoyable. Looking for the second volume (Wolverine Vs. The X-Men) now.

Ultimate X-Men 1-3 (I'm on the fourth one now): Very well done so far. Sabretooth was kind of a disappointment, but it's all good. And it features the hottest, sexiest, sluttiest Jean Grey of all time. :)

It wasn't worth trying to find all the comics to me. I thought that it was vastly overblown, and only read some parts. But it kind of depends what you're into. I do think those comics are better than The Dark Knight Rises, which was, besides, a major letdown from the preceding film in my view.

Just get the graphic novels. It's strange though, in one No Man's Land set there are five books and in another there are four books. Maybe they squished the five books into four books? Very strange indeed.

Read Superman/Doomsday: Hunter/Prey Parts 1, 2, and 3. Very disappointed. Yes, Doomsday returned, yes, Cyborg returned, but ... like ... a ten second fight and then a convenient ending? Lame. I think the next spot on my Superman/Doomsday reading list is when they team up. I think. I have to do some research.

Reading Ultimate X-Men 5, the one where it's the Ultimates Vs. The X-Men. Pretty good so far.

Oh, and Amber just finished Sandman 8! She's almost at the end, I'm so excited for her.

Shannon from what I read they did condense it into four HUGE volumes. I think I read that they even added a few things that were missing from them. It kind of sucks that the only way to get the full series is through amazon either on kindle or paperback. Since I bought my iPad I've been buying comics mainly through comixology and converting my old comics into digital. Converting being re buying and storing my physical copies. Also comixology is nice because they update the colors. If I buy it on kindle then it looks dull and muted.

It is one of my favorite comics these days. I trumpet its praises all the time. I am not sure if they put them in the trades, but in the single issues, eventually they started publishing an article in the back(by a third party) the analyzes and postulates theories about the series because it is so complex.

Revolutionary War. A Marvel mini series based around characters from Marvel UK. Not bad. I find it a bit rubbish, but entertaining rubbish.

The Royals Masters of War- Just one issue in but so far rather good.

Just finished Dept. Of Monsterology. A four part mini series that's getting a second series later this year (probably). Highly recommended.

Recently pulled the first Elephant Men volume from Comixology. Oh and a whole bunch of American Vampire comics that were going cheap. Again... good stuff. Been spoiled with good comics lately.

Oh yeah, I recently read Planet Hulk. It says something that I liked this lesser than the above (with the possible exception of the Revolutionary War comics but they're pretty light) yet still thought it rather good.

What have I read recently? Hmmm ...

Batgirl (New 52) Volume 1: Excellent! I started this as a lark, because I had purchased it in an eBay lot with other Bat books but I had no intention of reading it. But, I read the other Bat books and when it comes time to sell it, I figure I'll include this one and Catwoman Volume 1 as well to up the price. It was really good! The character is very likeable, very flawed. The story was good as well. Very much looking forward to picking up the next volume soon.

Batman And Robin (New 52) Volume 2: This one was pretty decent, nothing excellent though. The bulk of the book is the new Robin (Damien) challenging the former Robins. Why? Because Damien is a little shit, that's why, lol. Enjoyable enough.

Just started Catwoman (New 52) Volume 1: Not into it at the moment. All tits, no story. But maybe it'll develop the more I get into it.

Wolverine MAX Volumes 1 and 2 (the third Volume is being released soon methinks). Excellent. This is Wolverine the way he was meant to be portrayed. Blood and guts everywhere, he's fucking hot women every so often, the curses aren't bleeped, and so on. The only downside for me is the artwork. Not the best. Story good, art bad.

Arkham Asylum: Madness: Not sure where this one thought it was heading, but it was an OK read. The "behind-the-scenes" goings on at the asylum. But not too much happens. Eh.

Next on my list is Dial H (New 52) Volume 1. The premise sounds interesting.

Zeus is missing, the throne of Olympus is empty and the gods scheme and vie for it. There is a prophecy about one of Zeus's bastards and Wonder Woman does everything he can to protect a young woman and her unborn child who are caught up in it.

Has anyone read Grimm Fairy Tales from Zenescope? I heard the first 35-40 issues were good, then they go away from the fairy tales and into super powers. I was going to buy the box set of the first six trades, which is around 40 or so issues.

I started reading Insomnia after finishing the Dark Tower. I got through about 100 pages and stopped. I bought a book I'm super interested in "Zelda and Philosophy: I Link Therefore I am", dealing with the Philisophical meaning of video games and their power over our imagination. It's pretty damn good for only being 10 pages in.

I didn't know they made an Insomnia comic book ... ;)

Let's see, what have I read recently ... The first volume of Dial H: I was a little unimpressed with it. The idea behind it is a good one, but the dialogue itself is very random. Very clunky.

And now I'm reading The Death of Wolverine, which actually comes before Wolverine Goes To Hell, so I'm kind of reading them backwards. Oh well.

I am reading the last in my OTHER graphic novel obsession... Dark Horse's adaptation of Conan the barbarian. I have been a huge Conan freak since about 1984. In my humble opinion, the ONLY Conan paperbacks worth reading, are those that were done by Howard/Sprague de Camp. Many other authors have written Conan stories (cough... Robert Jordan... cough), and each of them were utterly terrible. None were true to the character Howard created. What I have loved about the Dark Horse series of graphic novels is that the vast majority of the stories in the series are true to Howards Conan, as opposed to the ultra cheesy versions of the character that has appeared in so many terrible paperbacks.

Neither Savage Sword, or King Conan. The graphic novels are collected works of the more recent, modern Dark Horse Conan comics. Some to the titles are:

Born on the battlefield
The Frost Giants Daughter and other stories
The God in the bowl and other stories
The tower of the elephant and other stories
The Hall of the dead and other stories

... there are others, fifteen or sixteen in all so far. Extremely cool stuff. I highly recommend them if you are into Conan. Like I said, they follow the stories of the 'original' Conan character... not the cheesy after market wannabee versions that came
later.

Almost done with Ultimate X-Men. I've loved it so far, but I have a question before I continue: What is the reading order of the end of the series? I know it ends with Ultimatum, but ...

There is Ultimatum: Ultimate X-Men/Ultimate Fantastic Four, which has the final three issues of Ultimate X-Men (98-100) and the final three issues of Ultimate Fantastic Four (58-60), but then there is an Ultimatum graphic novel which collects Ultimatum 1-5. Without spoiling anything, should I read the Ultimatum: X-Men/Fantastic Four graphic novel or the Ultimatum 1-5 graphic novel first? I'm buying them both (along with Ultimatum: Requiem, which obviously comes afterward) but I'd like to read them in order.

He's definitely trying his best to climb my list. There's an open spot for smart S.F. now that Warren Ellis is busy with other things. EoW #12 came out last week and it was glorious. The only issue I have with EoW and all Hickman books really, is wasted space. There are at least four blank pages in each book. I get what he's trying to do but I feel cheated every time there is a two page spread and only a single quote from the book. Maybe it's an aesthetic thing (the art really is sharp), maybe he's trying to set some sort of doomy, ominous tone to the book but it doesn't quite work for me. Same for Manhattan Projects. There could be so much more story instead of sometimes even blank pages.

That said, here's my current top 5 on-going books, in no particular order:

Prophet (check it out if you like East of West. It's a lot more nebulous and trippy but extremely well done)
Manhattan Projects
The Wake
Lazarus
East of West

Actually, I can't limit the list to just 5 so here's a few more:

Bedlam (from the writer of Morning Glories, gnarly shit)
Hinterkind
Zero
Saga
Peter Panzerfaust
Pretty Deadly

Single issues that just started: Nail Biter and Trees by Warren Ellis. I jogged to my car from the shop after I bought Trees, I couldn't wait to get home to devour it. I honestly haven't looked forward to a new book that much in a looong time. It didn't disappoint.

Normally I'd say The Wake but the series isn't done yet. I think it's going to be a 10 book run and that's it. I'd save the $$$ and get the hardcover that will eventually collect both arcs.

All of the titles are ongoing but they're cheaper in trades, especially if you keep an eye out for discount codes at B&N etc.

I've been reading The Massive from the beginning, I even have the #1 variant somewhere in here. I dig it, solid 3.5/5.

Prophet v. Pretty Deadly. Tough call. My crystal ball says both. Prophet is really weird though. 3 trades out so far but it's ending soon.

I have only the first tpb of Panzerfaust. Thinking of selling it and getting the hardcovers from now on. They each collect two trades and are only a couple bucks more than the total for two trades. Much, much nicer though.

Hi everyone. New guy here.

I just finished reading the Marvel adaptation of The Stand, went through all of it in 2 days, and sadly I was underwhelmed. My biggest issue was probably that the characters didn't have enough agency. So much seemed to be predetermined by god/otherworldly forces. However, I still feel like I should give the novel a shot to be fair (never read it). Should i give it a go even if I was underwhelmed by the comic? I guess what I'm asking is whether the comic is an accurate adaptation of the novel .

I just finished reading the Marvel adaptation of The Stand, went through all of it in 2 days, and sadly I was underwhelmed. My biggest issue was probably that the characters didn't have enough agency. So much seemed to be predetermined by god/otherworldly forces. However, I still feel like I should give the novel a shot to be fair (never read it). Should i give it a go even if I was underwhelmed by the comic? I guess what I'm asking is whether the comic is an accurate adaptation of the novel .

I don't think I've read the entire Stand comics, but those themes are prevalent in the novel. So if you don't like them.... you might not like the novel. That being said in a text piece like a novel you see more of the characters thoughts and a stronger sense of their journey and turmoil so that might offset the forces / destiny stuff somewhat.

I haven't read Messiah Complex. When I was little, I was all about the X-Men. Loved loved loved them. Now, as I collect graphic novels and research everything, the X-Men titles get a little confusing and vast.

I'm sure eventually I'll get to them all, but the only reason I read Schism now is because it falls in between Wolverine: Wolverine's Revenge and Wolverine: Goodbye, Chinatown. Trying to finish off Wolverine Volume 4 and Deadpool Volume 2.

i've stopped reading alot of Marvel since the Marvel Now launched because in my opinion a lot of the characters have been toned down like Wolverine and Ghost Rider

Big Trouble In Little China #2

New issues of American Vampire and The Wicked + The Devine were really good.

I haven't posted any reviews in more than a week because I've been busy but I just finished posting five: Rat Queens, Zero, Hinterkind, Trekker, Deadly Class. I decided not to post that new Kirkman book because it wasn't that good and I'd rather write about books I'm stoked on. http://nottooterrible.wordpress.com
