    Comics?

    I've never been big into comics, had a few when I was young, but never collected. I started reading Ultimate Spider-Man just a while back and got hooked on it. I just finished issue 100 and man it was good!! I love how they've changed the stories of every character. Has anyone else read the series? Anyone else read anything consistently?

    I used to read Spiderman a lot when I was a kid/teen, just loved it. Right now I'm reading "Y: The last man" and "The walking dead", both are great and I hope more "serious" comics like these will keep appearing in the future. I think that a comic book in general is such a great media to bring forward great stories with relatively small budgets.

    JMS (Straczynski) is writing Spiderman right now, right? I would so elect that guy president if I could. If there was a nuclear apocalypse, I would go and join his last holdout of civilization. Amazing guy. His Image series is out in TPB, called Rising Stars.


    Only thing I'm reading right now is BPRD. I think it's so badass since they got Guy Davis to come in and do a consistent style. I almost like how he draws the backup characters better than how Mignola does...

    And then there's always the DC/Marvel binge where I go and camp at Borders' Books and read them all. Identity Crisis was the only one that was really memorable, but that one was wicked, like Watchmen Lite or something.

    I used to read Ultimate Spider-Man. But it's so hard for me to find new issues where I live. I try to keep up with buying the trades. People can debate Brian Michael Bendis' writing skills, but I think he's an exciting writer. If you want more Bendis, check out Powers. It's the one of the best books out there.

    There's a lot more out there than Spidey! Plant your ass for a couple of hours in the graphic novel section and prepare to be inspired!

    ive just begun collecting the Metal Gear Solid series (Ashley Wood), have a copy of the complete series on order as we speak. ive also come to appreciate the works of David Mack who does the Kabuki series

    Comics?

    oh and dan, i have seen and like the girls that you speak of as well. never have gotten into much marvel stuff, however.. superheros dont tend to do much to me, however if i did have to get into a series id have to say id lean towards anything with wolverine.

    b.p.r.d is great. Although I'm not too into comics. The issues of FLIGHT are absolutely awesome. Do love those.

    I just statted reading Ultimate Spider-Man, and I like it a lot so far. I am not as far into it as you yet. I have been buying the hardcover editions and I am just finishing up book 2. I really want to check out Ultimate X-Men. I used to read comics a lot when I was younger but just started trying to get back into them recently. Some other books I want to check out are.

    The walking dead
    Sandman
    Hellboy

    Question what is b.p.r.d?

    There are a bunch of trades out by George Pratt and Kent Williams that are just fun reads. Anyone of them is good and of course the art work is a feast for the eyes. I think Williams' just had a new graphic novel published by DC not too long ago.

    wendy and richard pini's "elf quest". (first 20) god i love that series.
    used to read some spiderman back in the days,but despite loving it i never really got into it,mostly because we don't have a local comic book store and i like to read series from beginning to end,not somewhere in the middle.

    Hit up anything published by Vertigo Comics, and you're bound to find a goldmine in there somewhere. Preacher, Lucifer, DMZ, Fables, Sandman...
    I also have a guilty pleasure reading McFarlane's Spawn too

    Also, Humanoids Publishing has a pretty sweet range going, they publish a lot of European comics which have a different flair to most US comics. Rather neat, actually, and some really sweet art and stories to show.

    On Marvel stuff...OH OH OH I just got the old Wolverine/Havok: Meltdown mini run of 4 issues off eBay, in great condition. The art is fantastic. Check the cover pic of number 3. The interior art is like that the whole way through. I wish there were more comics like this in the Marvel lines (not that I don't like solids lines either, though). And the old Strange Tales Werewolf By Night run from 1998 has terriffic-sweet inked art inside by Leonardo Manco, it's wonderful.

    Okay nerd-mode off now :p
