-- what comics/graphic novels are you reading? (http://asylumnation.com/asylum/showthread.php?threadid=42956)

what comics/graphic novels are you reading?

most people here may not read comics, but i just started getting into them recently and i'm always up for suggestions... so i figure this could use its own thread.

currently i'm on book five of Watchmen.

me likey, dr. manhattan is an interesting character.

if you would've simply stuck with "tack" you would've earned a point.

spent most of the night reading Y: the last man on recommendation from the linked thread and also from another friend.. it's pretty good.

it's pretty pop-culture referential (some allusions are fairly subtle, like the vague outline of a Six-String Samurai poster on his bedroom wall in issue 1), which can be good but is sometimes over the top. mostly though, it's pretty amusing.

the only thing i hate about comics is having the whole 'to be continued' aspect of current ones. i just read 37 issues in a night, i really don't want to wait another month to read #38.. and i REALLY don't want to wait another two years to see what caused the plague.

i'm not currently reading any comics/graphic novels due to not knowing where the local shops are. however, i've read most of what's been recommended in the previous thread and still strongly feel that the sandman by neil gaiman is one of the best stories ever written, whatever genre you choose to place it in.

I owned all of those at one time, Rokkr. Wish I still had them, they were great.

Weasel Spoor may have them, actually.

I've just acquired Harvey Pekar's American Splendor collection and I'm working my way through those now.

Spent the last three or four days reading Preacher.

I liked it a lot. The first 16 or so issues were amazing, as was a lot of the cover art; some of the later Cassidy-centric storylines bordered on dull.

I really enjoyed the conversations with and about God; the writers were able to make Him a pathetic creature with believable motivations.

My four favorite characters of the series (besides Preacher himself) were:

4. Hoover - The black assistant who worked for The Grail.. it was very disturbing to watch him count three million grains of sand.
3. The Saint of Killers. He was coooool.
2. Detective Tool - the pitiful cop who fucked everything up. Hugzz f0r j00!
1. !!!!!!!!!ARSEFACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah! I learned to read with the freak brothers. My mom probably shouldn't have left them out.

The one where they go to Mexico was pretty funny.

I bought a bunch for my mom at a head shope in San Diego. That was ten years ago, though.

www.ripoffpress.com There's some goods!

I've been reading Lucifer of late.
This will probably bring howls of rage from the Sandman disciples, but I'm enjoying this series quite a bit more than Sandman.

lurcifer is indeed very good, easily one of my favorite books (the character himself isn't all bad)

I find myself wishing they'd spin off Gaudium and his sister into their own series. They constantly crack me up.

One of my sons turned me on to the Crossgen universe. I managed to acquire their entire catalogue. Starting with Meridian. Good stuff so far, too bad they folded.

Noe Barrio- Convent of Hell is a classic. Nuns and huge wodden cocks are always a plus..

Er, it's not a novel, but I just finished up a graphic arts version of Introducing Marxism (Rupert Woodfin, Oscar Zarate). My favorite bit is the illustration of Stalin's "liquidation" of Buhkarin, Zinoviev, and Kamenev.

not sure if I mentioned this before:

Bad ass online comic. Too bad production takes so long. If you click the blog link, there is a YOU TUBE video of how they create the animation from real people. Kinda like "Waking Life".... but black and white.

I wouldn't call 'badass' aj, even though I've read it all, it's actually very cliche cyberpunk, SLH and I discussed whether or not someone had simply kept notes on an actual cyberpunk campaign.

Which isn't to say it's bad, like I said, I read it, and I do prefer periodic large update format over the weekly update of most webcomics, and I really like a nice download package so I can simply dump it on my PPC and read at leisure without even having to turn the wireless on.
