Big news in the Comic industry, Marvel was just bought by Disney.

Thoughts?

Good, I guess? DC is owned by Warner Brothers soooo something like this has probably been a long time coming for Marvel. It's pretty good in light of the fact that they went bankrupt in the 90s. It sounds like it'll be business as usual but with better financial backing and ties to the film industry. So WHATEV MARVEL CARRY ON.

Preacher was reeeeal good to begin with then got kind of silly, ended up having a lazy, slapsticky tone that has characterised most of Ennis' other projects that I've seen afterwards (e.g. The Boys, Punisher), plus at some point they changed the colourist and it started looking kind of weird. I'm not surprised that Crossed, which I haven't heard of, isn't that good.

I kind of liked Transmetropolitan to begin with but didn't finish reading it, again because it got kind of silly.

I have also been reading a lot of Superman collections, the ones mentioned already are real good, plus All Star Superman and Grant Morrison's Batman series' have made me go back to The Invisibles, which I never read when it was around but I like. Has anyone read Animal Man or Doom Patrol?

What about the Civil War and Infinite Crisis crossover event things? Are they any good?

What about non-superhero comics? I read Fun Home and Persepolis last year which were both great, would like to read more things along that line. Come on perthbands with the recommendations.

Topps' run of X-files comics were pretty cool, imo


Perhaps before Transmet I'll give League of Extraordinary Gentlemen a shot seeing as I've got it sitting here not being read. The art looks fairly sweet.

DO IT. Excellent series. Top Ten and Promethea also good if you haven't read those.

Don't normally get into comics adapted from TV. Am thinking of making an exception for the adaption of the Justice League cartoon.

fair call, for some reason I've always found X-files to be a story concept broad enough to work when adapted to other mediums like comics and novels

I dig Adrian Tomine & Joe Sacco.  Both their stuff is rad.  I particularly like Tomine's illustration style.  Drawn & Quarterly releases a lot of good stuff, but I haven't bought any in a while due to being poor.  Maybe I'll grab some again now.  Also, obvious stuff like Dan Clowes and Harvey Pekar is great too.

'Ghost Stories' and 'A Country Nurse' from the 'Tales of Essex County' Trilogy are really great. Got them from Planet a few months ago. Havent been able to order the first book though.

Adrian Tomine is a good recommendation, I keep meaning to get one of his books based on the indie rock dream girls on the covers.

I still have at least 100 comics left. I collected alot of Dark Horse, Vertigo, Phantom and Marvel. In my opinion Dark Horse is where its at. Best art and stories.

Dark horse tended to have the 'best' art in a sort of classical sense I found, lots of realism and nice brush painting. But is that really what one buys comics for? I always love a hint of kitsch.

I'm searching for a copy of Persepolis in the original French I know, I know, the internet has the answer. Have you tried emoboy or lenore if you're into it for the gothy feel? I know emoboy is in the state library system.

Dark Horse wasnt always so realistic and natural. I remember when Killian Plunkett started at DH. I think him, Sam Kieth, Guy Davis and John Nadeau were my favorites for a long long time.

Did anyone else read Swamp Thing, Sandman Mystery Theater or Industrial Gothic?

Yeah I just realized what I said about Dark Horse's art style was flagrant bullshit.

Got 'shortcomings' and 'summer blonde', Tomine is a good read. Pekar's 'The Quitter' i can recommend, I've got all of Clowes and recommend it all!

Who is Joe Sacco?

I'll have to throw in Charles Burns if no one has already. Read 'Black Hole' or the 'Big baby' series.

'Love and rockets' and "palomar' series by the Hernandez brothers too!

'The Fabulous Furry freak bros' by Gilbert Shelton and anything by Robert Crumb!
