I don't know if you're open to suggestion or not but here are a few things I liked over the past year - "The Losers", published by Vertigo, finite story and run. "Black Summer" by Warren Ellis although this is still starting out and has the hero type thing but completely reversed however it's only 3 issues in so "Planetary" by Warren Ellis published via Wildstorm.
For some reason it isn't letting me hyperlink it. I was actually going to post this in the thing of the day thread. The Zero Punctuation reviews are awesome! I can't say that I dislike any of them.
I bought monthly comic titles up until about two years ago. See, I remember when there were no trades. Collections were rare. If you wanted to read the continuing story, the monthly was your only choice. For many years, there were no comic stores either, so you didn't even have the option of just buying a lot of back issues.The one good thing about that time was that only Spiderman, Superman, and Batman had more than one monthly, and none of them were worth reading. If you readUncanny X-Men, you had ALL the X-Men story. If you readFantastic Four, you had ALL the Fantastic Four story, and so on.
Two years ago? Two years ago? Listen, when I was buying comics as a kid in the early '90s there were like four X-Men books at least. That doesn't even count X-Force, X-Factor, etc.Also, anyone who considers financial gains when buying comics is beyond stupid. Buying entertainment goods for the purposes of investment is possibly one of the worst economic decisions you could make. People buying comics to collect, as opposed to read, are what is killing comics.
When are you guys going to review Groo the Wanderer on comic night?
When are you guys going to review Groo the Wanderer on comic night?I have heard of Groo. It's a comedic barbarian type guy, right? With the goofy art by the Sergio guy. I don't think Rym has ever heard of it. I don't think either of us has ever read it. Is it available in trade?
It occurs to me: Why are there no zombie horses, dogs, or cats?
